Looks like pee and don't smell much better, but hits the spot if you're dehydrated after a night of partying with some killer emo/indie/metal bands. Best if served cold.

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.

LARRRGE!

Drank straight from the 40.
Sad to see they don't offer this in glass bottles anymore.

Look: A golden, piss yellow color.
Aroma: Sour apples. Honey. Bread.
Taste: Fruity. Cornbread, red apples, sugar cookies. A little metallic on the finish.
Feel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Not that syrupy or sickly sweet.
Overall: For malt liquor, it's alright. I prefer this over Colt45, St. Ides and Mickeys .

For a plastic bottle, I expected much, much worse.
It probably helps that my bottle is only two months old.

Look - I kept this bad boy in the bottle, it has a golden yellow color, as soon as I unscrewed the top it hissed with loads of carbonation.

Smell - Sweet corn, sulfur, skunk

Taste - Corn syrup, sweet booze, skunked to hell, some thin malt hidden somewhere. Has a syrupy sweet aftertaste with lingering skunk.

Feel - Medium bodied, aggressive carbonation but still finishes "wet"

Overall - Clear bottles don't help this malt liquor out at all. With that said it's all I can find around here. I've had this probably a dozen times now, hate it each time, but I keep coming back for more. I feel ashamed.

"Go on and gimme some o'that O.E." Yeah, it's nice that this brew was mentioned in the classic film Menace 2 Society, but outside of that you should avoid it at all cost.

Poured from can that was in freezer as this the only way to drink malt liquor. It pours a standard gold color with a big white head. There is a good lacing left in the glass. This is your typical malt liquor, nothing special here.
