    Last topic about beer inspired me. I gotta say I'm a fan of Old
    English and Hurricane. Grab your 40 and pour a wee bit out for
    the homies...hahahaha

    I was a huge fan of Old English when I was 15yrs old and I haven't drank it a quite some time. I ran into and old friend about a month ago who had just picked up two bottles and he gave me one when I drank it I had no idea how I could drink that stuff when I was a kid. It tasted awful to me.

    I'd go with Mike's Hard if you even consider that a malt liquor. I love hard liquor though, especially orange vodka.

    I used to drink Old E, Steel Reserve, and Mickey's when I was in high
    school and didn't have much money. For some insane reason I
    decided to drink a couple of 40s of Mickey's about two weeks ago and I
    have no clue how I used to drink that stuff all the time. I also
    had a terrible hangover the next day. I think I will stick Spaten
    and Corona from now on. If I want to go cheap I will just get a
    case of Miller Lite.

    Re: Malt Liquor

    In much of the USA, malt-liquor is associated with African-Americans in inner city neighborhoods. When the breweries realized this was cutting down on potential sales to the white population - they renamed the stuff: Ice Beer was thus born. Same stuff - new monicker.

    Of course the traditional malt-liquors still exist. Nothing like a little racism in advertising.

    Re: Malt Liquor

    The only drink that falls under the monicker "malt liquor" that I have tried is the horrendous Bavaria 8.6. Each sip tastes like a cross between paint stripper and Danish oil. There are probably nicer ones on the market but if they taste anything like said beer, I would avoid like the plague.

    He'll stick to his Beamish.

    Re: Malt Liquor

    Nik has beenthere , but he wouldnt drink any of that piss beer again.
    The nasty drunk that is burned into my memory, is one of a poor slob drunk, passing out , and waking up with a headache and sometimes black eye.

    Now days it is a nice micro-brewed beer, or even a imported beer like Becks, Heineken, Carlsberg, and of course the Royality of St. Pauli Girl.:thumbsup:

    Re: Malt Liquor

    Is this stuff in any way related to "malt wine", which would be a kind of ale?

    Re: Malt Liquor

    No, its a cheap/highalcohol beer, because of the higher alcohol content by weight , it is called a malt liquor.

    All and all its a beer that goes flat quick and usally is bought/sold/ and drank from a large glass bottle usually 40 ounce.

    the cost of a 40 ounce malt liquor is less or the same as a 12 ounce can or bottle of budweiser

    Re: Malt Liquor

    What's the alcohol percentage?

    Is it used with a mixer?

    Re: Malt Liquor

    It is around 6 % alcohol by weight, and no mixer it is beer for the sake of description.

    all thou I bet the alcohol content could go as high as 9 or 10 %

    swims favorite was 211. Its cheap and it does the job quickly. Old English is a second favorite of swims. Nothing like an ice cold beer on a hot summer day =)

    Re: Malt Liquor

    I remember when NIK was around 16 yrs old, he knew of a store close to home where I could buy beer, I was poor and thirsty for some beer, so I found out that Shiltz Malt Liquor Bull was the best buy for the money.

    It contained a high alcohol percentage, and was priced under a dollar for a 32ounce quart.

    I have not thought about it for sometime. I laugh when remembering the past.:laugh:
