COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For an extra kick, get some Colt 45 Hight Gravity. It has a higher alcohol percentage than traditional colt 45, so make sure you can handle yours.

(can - 24 oz) Pale yellow with a soapy head. Overly sweet corn aroma with some malts and grass. Sweet flavor with nothing else going for it. Gets the job done I suppose.

Can at home, sans paper sack and wife beater. Pours brilliantly clear gold with a large, rocky white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is creamed corn and Pils malt, light wet brown paper sack notes and not much else. Flavor is sweet corn and Pils malt, wet paper sacks, light peppery alcohol, floral and cheap perfume notes with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. Damn, this beer works every time; gotta love the black and gold bull can.

What cab I say? This is urban wino fuel, and not at all appealing to the flavor minded drinker. Okee-dokee... it pours a yellow brew with a fast fading over-carbonated head and tastes like the ghetto brew itís meant to be. Yech!

This can is amazing. It has the Colt 45 horse on the back and says, "WorksEveryTime" in great big letters. Yes, 8.5% alcohol will get the job done just quick. I know that for a fact. This is a kind of dissapointingly flavorless malt liquor. Itís pretty bad and all, good to get drunk on but ultimately unsatisfying. It is pils yellow in color and itís head barely exists. Its nose is of nothing but a faint whiff of cheap beer. Flavor about follows suit but some slight sweetness brings out that classic high gravity malt grape-drink-esque character. There is a bit of alcohol present but nothing too overt. Iíd say a standard IIPA is worse and that has tons of flavor and this has next to none. So, I dunno, good job Colt 45 guy on a relatively clean and yet still terrible beer.

"beer #1 in recent ghetto "tasting": tall can. didnít bother pouring these, so Iíll rate the appreance in the can pretty much along the lines of the rest of the beer...which ainít good. Honestly, Iíve had fouler, but this was skunky, and strong at that, which is both good and bad. Harder to get the skunky corn down at 8% when it warms, but at least you get a buzz."

24 oz can. Whatís a road trip to another state if you arenít ticking malt likkas in the hotel room? Clear pale gold pour with a small soapy white head. As far as malt likkas go, this one doesnít suck at all. Doesnít have that awful grapey-aroma that many do. Grainy lager, tastes like a little heavier BMC pale lager. Not very good, but not really offensive either.

Pours to a nice looking white head that hangs around for a while and tries to lace, but then it craps out to a thin ring. Color is light gold. Aroma is sweet corn and veggies--thereís some malt in there too. Flavor is sweet, tangy, clean, boozy and corn-syrupy as hell--just what it should be. Finish is all alcohol and corn. Mouthfeel is light and dry and more like brandy or vodka. Overall, a decent buzzer that plays to its audience well.

Niet zo speciaal, heeft hoge alcohol graad maar smaakt zoals een doordeweekse pils, niet veel smaak aan

Totally horrible. BUt dirnkable only for the record. Very strong and sweet but high to swallow after some time.

A golden color with a white head as expected. The aroma smells like pee and corn. So far this isnít going well. The flavor is rather mild for jacked up ABV malt liquor. I expect that harsh paint thinner like burn but none of that here. The flavor is slightly sweet with corn, cooked veggies, and a bit of creamy mouthfeel. I fear I might be talking myself into liking this. Its still pretty bad but Im not making a face with every sip. And that is the criteria I go for in this style.
