I give this a 5 across the board because it is what it is "MALT LIQUOR" and it meets all the expectations of just that, it is easy to drink and is very inexpensive if anyone is coming onto this website to and rating a 2 or 3 then there is something wrong with them and that person should ask them self, was I dissapointed because the malt liquour was not a 5 and did not meet my expectations, or was I dissapointed because I drank malt liqour? To be honest it is just as good as any IPA that I have consumed because like all beer it is an aquired taste and to much of anything could make you sick, simply put take a high end beer that is highly hopped and take a malt liqour and give it to someone who has never tried any beer before and they would think that both are disquisting!! This is a bang for the buck and works well wheter your on a tight budget or you have a lot of money and besides it is up to you, the drinker to decide what your taste buds like not some amateurs on a website who have no idea what they are talking about.

Honestly, the Olde English 800 is godsend. This aromatic refreshment offers a rich, smooth taste with an other-worldly finish. Go ahead, treat yourself: spark a blunt, sit back, and relax to the sound of that seal popping.
OE is, truly, the king of malt liquor

Being a big 40 hands guy myself, I'd recommend putting these down quick until u start gagging. This oughta fuck u up in the head a bit. I recommend drinking competitively with ur peers because it's always funny to watch the light weight in the group let it all out. For example, me and my boys head down to the overhang on the Albertson/Willy park border to put these things to rest. Nothing better than for example, my friend ronan pulling the trigger. Not a gun he's yaking his fucking guts out. Overall 11/10 for putting u in the cerebral palsy state on the ground for a good amount of time. P.S. make sure the pussy who never drinks can help you get home.

You know what eazy e said it best OE800 cuz that’s my brand. This stuff has such a complex taste it’s smooth a big silky booty and melts your face for so much less the any double ipa. No joke OE tastes good and gets the job done faster then an “undocumented” imergrent. If you don’t try and like this true king of beers you have to be a racist

If I were to sum myself up in one word, it's swank. I'm a guy who only cares for the fine things in life. If you're like me, then Olde English is the beer for you. The aroma of oak is evident once you open it (probably what is was aged in). The taste is smooth and sweet, similar to many other high-end European beers. I became violently ill shortly after finishing this (probably unrelated).

This is for drinking out of a 40-oz bottle. This is the 40 to which all other 40's are compared. $2.50 after tax, at the corner store.

Smell - It smells like roasted corn and body odor (Skunk), so in the world of 40's, that's a lovely smell.

Taste - Roasted corn blended into a gallon of water, vodka added. In other words, sweetish and somewhat toasty. Obvious alcohol.

Mouthfeel - Doesn't bubble too much. Water. Odds are you'll get a bit too buzzed to notice the actual texture.

Overall - The 40 of 40's. A 40 drinker's 40. It's one of those things where you dedicate the afternoon to it, while you do yardwork.

Look - Kate Upton in a VS babydoll. Sheer to be exact.
Smell - Toni Braxton's hair blowing in the wind.
Taste - Elisha Cuthbert's lips.
Feel - J-Lo's hips.
Overall - Christina Aguilera on Ellen's couch, post motherhood.
