One of my favorite $2 train beers. Very drinkable adjunct beer when it's cold, as with most of them gets nasty warm. But that's more reason to pound it and let it do its' job. There is more to life than a craft beer.

OE, Eightball, OE800. These are just some of the names that this brew goes under. Hints of metal in the nose along with cereal. Taste is corn and booze. Looks like other malt liquors. Overall, an average malt liquor.

Beer is yellow in color. Smells like rancid corn. Taste of corn with some sweetness. Light body. Goes down smooth.
This is one of my favorite malt liquors its up there with Magnum and Colt 45.
