For over 4 decades, Colt 45 Premium Malt Liquor has been the "class of all malt liquor brands". With its smooth and distinct flavor and historic affiliation with Billy Dee Williams, it has become an urban American icon. If you’re looking for a thick 40, or an ice cold shorty, Colt 45 is the malt liquor that works EVERYTIME!

Surprisingly not bad for 8% colt 45. smell is cheapo grains, alcohol, and ass. Taste follows the smell, rank and rancid like a rotting gazelle, but with a earthy cheap as fuck palate that rots your brain. A classic.

Can. Drinking to cope with Stitches, RIP in Peace, bro. Nose is sweet corn. Can is sweet white color with blue letters. Initial taste is super sweet and light booze. Shit if this couldn’t pass for a wheat wine. Light pepper in the finish. This shit aint to bad!

Aroma is sulphur and adjunct. Taste is sweet bland malts with generic hop bitterness on the tip. Very obvious liquor taste. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Can @ Hotel. Clear golden apple juice colored beer with some white foam. Rather sweet aroma of apple juice, corn, and a hint of white grape. Slightly soapy. Not really boozy, though. The taste is quite sweet, but not over the top like some others I’ve had. Big time corn flavor and lots of sticky sweet fruit juice drink type product.

Je devais me sentir particulièrement de bonne humer le jour où j’ai acheté cette bière, ou bien tout le contraire, déprimé. Cette Colt 45 est blonde cristalline et sa mousse, quoique type, se résorbe rapidement et ce, au complet. Niet! Inodore, ou presque, sinon des odeurs négligeables de maïs. C’est sucré au goût, d’une façon propre au genre. Ça a des saveurs de glaçage à gâteau. À part ça, c’est fou à quel point c’est insipide, sans vraiment de qualité gustative. L’alcool est imperceptible non plus. Ah! ben! C’est pas comme si je ne m’y attendais pas. (1299-171014)

can. Poured clear amber with big white head. Sweet malt aroma with an alcohol note. Medium-low body with a bready mouthfeel and smooth carbonation. Very sweet grainy malt flavour, its like sweet corn and honey with an alcohol finish.

Too sweet for a real beer. Tastes like sour apples. I think Olde English might actually taste better. You gotta drink a lotta sh!t to get that tick. I poured it down the drain in the end. I was afraid the drain would reject it.

For this version of Colt 45 there wouldn’t be much difference to say from the 7% version as there is only one % difference. It works everytime. Sometime’s it’s good, sometime’s it is not good. If you like malt liquor & higher % lager’s then you know what to get from this. Cheer’s. I like Colt 45 more with less %.

....and two zig-zags! Cause baby that’s all we need! OR, actually, not Because in all honesty, if you wanna get drunk and I mean drunk as a skunk drunk, and you can put aside the nasty, metallic taste, then go ahead and get yourself a 40 of Colt 45. Even here in Canada, where it is about $8 a bottle, it’s still the cheapest and IMO, most effective way to get drunk here. Why doesn’t this deserve a 1.0 rating? The reason being is it’s a step under Olde English 800 and that’s a saying quite a bit for bum beer. I don’t drink this a lot, because I believe this kind of drinking and drunkenness is appropriate for only certain occasions..... Enjoy

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Oh the good ol days. Use to cost about $3 for a 40oz bottle. A few of these and you would be set for the night. Looking back now, the taste is awful. Wouldn’t drink this casually to enjoy it.
