An american ale, originally made in Newark, NJ but is now made elsewhere. Still found primarily on the East Coast and New Jersey. Often sold in 40oz bottles and pint cans. my favorite cheap beer straight up. dont get it twisted this is not 'malt liquour' like OE, Colt45, etc. Drank by old men, gangstaz, derelicts, and beer lovers alike!

first beer i got smashed on face down in the snow.
i bought a six pack of 16oz Ballantine Ales for 5 bux.
