Slightly sweet and super smooth Colt 45 is the malt liquor that works every time.

Tasted on 8/9/12 from a 24oz can purchased at a gas station. Pours clear brassy golden with an average white head that leaves fizzy lace. The nose is sweet corny malt with some alcoholic heat. The flavor is exactly the same with maybe just a touch of light bitterness. The body is light with lively, fizzy carbonation, and a short corny malt finish.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass even though it was consumed several times in my younger days straight from the bottle. The appearance was a light clear yellow color with a fast rising carbonation trying to escape drastically. There wasn’t any head. The smell was a grainy super sweet corn cereal maltiness with no balance. The taste was exactly the same as the smell. Sticky super sweet corn adjunct aftertaste. There wasn’t a finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body. I find this one to not be sessionable, I’m thinking it’s because it’s due to the unbalanced aroma and taste. Overall, well, it is a malt liquor, need I say more?

Bottle. Clear bronze appearance.First impression was that this has no taste. Second impression was the same. What a waste of time trying this one was. Think I have been over generous in my rating.

Transfer from BA review on 8-13-12 - Poured from 40 into a pint glass and then just drank straight from the bottle Appearance – Pours a straw color with a fine white head that faded very rapidly. Smell – The smell was of corn and a light skunk and biscuit smell. Taste – The taste began of malt and corn mixed with a sweeter caramel like flavor. As the taste advances further the caramel fades, the corn intensifies. At the end a corny and slightly skunky flavor are left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body is thin and the carbonation is high making for one easy downing brew. Overall – Well.. not tons of flavor, but it’s a cheap malt so what do you expect. Not great, but not offensive. A standard malt.

Malty, boozy beer fix. A little better than some of the other beers out there, and therefore drinkable.
