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.

Moutlrie, Ga. - Chevron Store - 24 oz can macho-looking shiny industrial looking black can.Light gold pour, pithy white head that leaves a lot foam after the original pour. Wet paper bag aroma, plenty of corn squeezings and booze. Not much else. Instead of being a "belly warmer" this is a belly ignitor - hope I make it to the next rest stop! Throat clenching mouthfeel - good as an alcohol delivery system.

Colt 45 High Gravity Lager has a thick, white head and a clear, golden color. Carbonation is moderate to high. The aroma is of corn and malt, but not particularly strong. The taste is surprisingly mild for an 8.5% abv beer. This drink does not taste strong, if anything, it has a stereotypical beer flavor, so Iíd say the alcohol is pretty much hidden. Mouth-feel is moderately heavy. This finished crisp, which was a further surprise. I thought Colt 45 HG (poured from a 16 oz. can) was very full-flavored and enjoyable. I recommend giving this one a try. By the way, it is NOT available in Louisiana. I bought it on a road trip in New York City. RJT

Pours yellow, with a white head. Aroma is corn, grain, malt, and a little fruit. Flavor is corn, fruit, grain, and alcohol. Not too bad, certainly drinkable.

Pretty decent. Kind of has a cheap wine taste. Notes of old grape candy and banana peels are very present and somewhat inviting as I take my first sips. This isnít bad for a mass produced ultra cheap malt liqour.

I am assuming this is what i had, but who knows. It was labeled Colt 45 HG and it was 8.5%. Since I donít want to add another rating I will put it here until further notice. Corny sweet and metallic nose. Can isnít that cool. It is not sinister looking, it is sleek and silver, and not how I like my malt liquor cans. Light bodied and drinkable at 8.5%, corny and sweet, but not much else. Drinkability is decent.

A: I was absolutely shocked by the pour on this beer. The pour is a clear golden yellow color with plenty of small carbonation bubbles and a fluffy white head with great retention. S: The nose is light and sweet with some definite corn and grain and no noticeable hop character. Quite neutral, to be honest. T: The flavor is similarly unobjectionable. The corn and grain give the beer sweetness, but thereís no hops at all--not surprising, however. M: The body is on the light side with a high carbonation and lacking that usual malt liquor aftertaste. D: This is one of the best malt liquors out there. I was expecting this to be terrible considering the regular Colt 45, but I found this to be quite decent.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Aroma: malt liquor. Clean, grainy, just a hint of fruit. Not all bad. Flavor is surprisingly smooth, a bit papery, but no real intense alcohol bite. One of the better malt liquors I have had.

kramer (5095) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2010
24 oz bottle. Tasted as a part of an 18 beer Malt Liquor blind tasting. Pours a clear pale gold body with a small wispy white head. Big corn and cooked celery nose with just a little alcohol. The flavor is overly sweet with lots of corn and cooked celery. The mouthfeel is a little flat and bland, even for a beer of this quality.

smell of sour corn, light malt syrup & distant acetone. bright yellow w/ lots of bubbles and minimal head. dries up and sours the mouth. tastes of water, white sugar, alcohol. a little crisper than other malt liquors.
