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

Very grainy and tastes under-done. I got this at a gas station. Nothing much good to say about it and I ended up pouring out over half of it. I went into this product with zero expectations and even those were not met.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2016 473 ml can. Could not find any reference to the ABV on the label. Aroma is grainy cereal. Poured clear golden straw with OK head. The taste is quite sweet with fruity ester/solvent, wet cardboard & metallic notes with a slight residual sour aftertaste. Consumed for research purposes only. US brewed Malt Liquor - Tick.

Bottle split at Cotts Convention 2, thanks to Rich, Martyn and Shawn, 05/03/16. Clear golden blonde with a decent off white cap. Nose is toasted grain, cereal, sweet notes, paper. Taste comprises much the same, sweet aspartamic vibes, light carmael, more papery notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Smooth enough drinking ML but lacks boost - wats the fucken point ?

Clear bottle shared at Cotteridge II as ’Colt 45’. Many thanks to Macboost and the Birmingham crew. Tanya from Command & Conquer Red Alert used Colt 45s, and for that reason alone I’m interested to try this. But that’s about as far as my enjoyment goes. Pale yellow, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is biscuity malt, plain and airy. Body is light, slightly foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is sugary pale biscuits, corn, malt sugars, soft finish. Better than most in the style I’ve tried. (2.1)

Bottle. Cotteridge Beano v2. Pretty much what I was expecting. Not for me, although it’s certainly better than the Bud Platinum that preceded it.

First off the billy dee williams commercials were the best thing about this beer...for me way to much malt...just my opinion.

Looks like this is 11K. Bottle at the Cotetridge Convention 2016. Thanks to Rich, Sarky and Boosty Mackenzie for this juan. It pours clear pale gold with a substantial white head. The aroma is relatively fresh (although I did just have two chilli beers before), paper, cardboard, creamed corn and malt extract. The taste is crisp, sweet, creamy, corn, cheap sweet white bread, plenty of alcohol boost and white sugar. Medium body, fine carbonation and grainy mouth-feel. Tastes cheap, sugary and boosty. I suppose it was what they were aiming for... Sweet baby jeebus. I definitely prefer the high gravity version over this.

Cotteridge Convention II. Bottle sent over by Macboost, cheers Shawn. I drank this beer straight after this one http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/beername/397611/ and it was the greatest relief of the afternoon to drink it. Golden beer. Aroma of malts. Taste is sticky malts and some sweetness. The best malt Likka I have had so far.
