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

This beer always makes me laugh when i look at the 40 oz bottle. Its definately a gangsta beer which gives u a feeling of happpiness when you drink it. Like Afro Man Said....Colt45 and 2 zigzags baby thats all we need...

Originally rated on 2/6/08- What can i say that hasnt been said already? Colt isnt the worst malt liquor out there but it isnt the best, It tastes like it smells, good for a cheap buzz. I still like the Billy Dee Williams commercial though.

What can I say other than it looks like piss, smells like sweet corn and taste like sweet corn, goes down easy unlike some other malt liquors.

A favorite of legendary actor Billy Dee Williams (Aka Lando Calrissian). As malt liquor goes itís probably not the worst thing out there. The aroma smells of used ash trays in a local dive bar after a night of heavy drinking. The appearance reminds me of a dehydrated homeless manís urine. The taste, oh the taste, sadness, but most malt liquors taste of sadness. On the positive, it went down fairly easily and it did the job of getting my buzz on. I was distressed even buying this from the liquor store but ratings must be done!

밀러 브루어리 - 콜트 45, 5.6% ABV 일반적으로 싸고, 가격에 비해 도수가 높은 것으로 알려져 있는 몰트 리쿼. 인위적으로 알콜을 주입해 단가를 낮춘 모양으로 돈없을때 취하려고 사는 맥주로 유명하다 맛은 카스 레드정도의 독한 기운이 올라오는 밍밍한 맥주. 실제로 5.6%밖에 안되는데 캔의 크기탓인지 술이 빨리 취한다. 40oz의 커다란 유리병 버전으로도 유명하다. 라스베가스, 미국 https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2015 16 oz. can from the bargain bucket at Greenís. Pours a weak, clear yellow, with a big, bubbly, white head. The aroma is relatively unoffensive corn syrup, cereals, and some light saaz hops. Sweet corny flavor, with just the faintest touch of bitterness. Light, but harsh, mineral aftertaste. Light body, slick, a little astringent, and fairly unpleasant. This is a reasonable malt liquor, which means it doesnít make me want to pour it out immediately. Drinkable, which is about the best compliment I can give it.

Pours a very clear, clean dark straw color. Nice thin foamy head, with some better than expected lacing. A few large bubbles are popping up from the bottom.

Aroma is heavy with roasted malt, alcohol, and tap water. Thereís corn in it, smells somewhat like corn flakes.

Tastes pretty good. I mean, itís not offensive. Itís not complex or anything. It tastes like most malt liquors do, or for that fact most any regular beer. Itís heavy on lightly roasted malt. Lots of corn, and grass. Itís sweeter than most regular beers, but not too much so. Iím drinking from a can, so the metallic Iím tasting might be from that. But I also taste some alcohol.

Mouthfeel is pretty light. Itís quite smooth. Itís very drinkable. It goes down so easy! Thereís a little bit of bitterness from the alcohol at the end. But not much. But itís more sweet than the bitter, so really, the finish isnít so bad.

Overall, itís pretty good. Iím a little wary of malt liquor because of a bad experience with Schlitz. But this is good, and for the price, itís a good beer at a great value. I would certainly recommend!

Colt 45 is just another malt liquor for the most part. It doesnít subscribe to the overbearing sweetness factor like some others, however. Smell is wet hay and some light corn and flowers. Appearance, nothing, nil. The color is nice sort of. Taste is mostly smooth, but a little rough especially if youíre drinking from a 40 and it starts to warm up. Overall, it is not to be missed if you enjoy the malt liquor

Bottle 0,95ltr: Clear golden colored brew with an very faint bitter taste and its very smoothly sweet. I donít if "It works every time", but i like it somehow.

Donít ask how. Donít ask why. Just remember that it works ... every time.
