Big can from a convenience store in Athens OH. Shared with some raters pre RBSG grand tasting. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Loose bits of lace. Bread and musk. Medium to bigger body. Kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Not awful. Just a bready flavor. Minimal bite, light roughness to it. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. OK for what it is.

Can share thanks to Homer321. Brilliantly clear pale straw yellow color. Very double malty, double corn adjunct, semisweet aroma. Much of the same in the flavor, double your pleasure, double your fun, it’s the statement that colt 45 is makin with double malt Yummm.

Bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clear pale gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma of corn and grains with a hint of citrus. Taste is light sweet. Same as aroma. Medium bodied with a thin yet slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Not the best malt likka ive had but definitely not the worst.
