Bought a 24 FL. OZ. (709 ml) can of this from a Shell Gas Station in St. Louis, MO for $1.89 (happy hour early!?!). Poured from the Gold/Maroon colored can into a 12-14oz clear cup. Has APR 16 12 on the bottom of the can.
Aroma- Tons, tons, tons of malt. Light grains in the background.
Appearance- pours a 3 finger, frothy head that lasts for an unusually long time. Crystal clear, light golden body. Leaves thick lacing.
Flavor- Light grains, touch of sweetness, and strongly malted. No bitterness or anything special.
Mouthfeel- Light bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, Smooth, but then finishes with bit of grit and not anything I want to remember...
Overall Impression- Just wanted to fit in as I left the ghetto gas station with a 24 ozer in my hand with a lottery ticket. Would NEVER come back to this brew but was still interested in trying. I would avoid if I were you!

Used to be my go to brew when I was younger. Actually used to sport an O.E. shirt in those days. Man, I was cool. Anyways, it's been a while, so here we go...
Poured from a 24oz can into a FW pint glass...
A - Pours yellow with a one finger head that dissipates at a hasty pace. Lacing is minimal...
S - Sweet malts and corn. Alcohol doesn't come through very strong...
T - Pretty much follows the nose. Malty with a good amount of corn in the mix. Very earthy tasting. Alcohol is pretty well hidden here...
M - Very watered down. Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation...
O - I remember this one being a little more sweet. Not half bad. For the price, you can't really beat this if you looking for a cheap buzz. Thinking I will drink the rest out of the can...

From the 40 fl. oz. bottle APR2312-005111712. Sampled on December 4, 2011. Good crack on the twist off top. The pour is pale to golden yellow with a real fizzy head that settles down to a ring and leaves clinging lacing in its wake.
Okay I am rating this on the American Malt Liquor style. As far as the style goes the aroma is comfortably malted with corn and grass but it is not terribly obnoxious. The body is thin and typical for the style. A lot of malt liquors make me wince and grind my teeth as I sip them but not this one. It was not half-bad as far as the style goes. There is a sweet grainy character in the taste with a clean hop finish.
Of course this is not a craft. It is what it is, brewed to quench your thirst, accompany dogs and beans, and drown your sorrows. This one is a bit better than the average malt liquor.

Drinking one now at my fantasy basketball draft.
Appears just like it should. The head is like a few cms tall, and the bubbles are colorful like soap bubbles or the reflection of gasoline. The brew itself is totally clear.
Hints of frathouse basemenet; more robust than natty and not as metallic as "ice" beers.
Tastes a little sweet, corn syrupy. Malty liquor.
Mouthfeel is OE's strongpoint. For a 40 it's relatively smooth and that's why I prefer it among 40s...which run like 4 bucks.
It is what it is; compared to the beers of the world it's definitely along the bottom rung, hence the low grade. But, it's still drinkable if you're a bro and having an OE is, sometimes, better than not having an OE.
