2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I am assuming this is what i had, but who knows. It was labeled Colt 45 HG and it was 8.5%. Since I don’t want to add another rating I will put it here until further notice. Corny sweet and metallic nose. Can isn’t 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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 there’s 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.

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.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
While it’s in the can it smells like rich malts, caramel, and rotting tomato’s. In my stein the malt and caramel were still there but not as much as the rotting tomato smell. Pours a macro looking yellow with a macro looking white head. Syrupy consistency on the palate, alcohol burn in the throat............BUT......not as much as most "high gravity" beers. This is shit, but not as bad as most in this category. I paid $1.29 for a 24 ounce can at some gas station in F.I.B. land. Not a bad price for, overall, not a bad alcohol delivery system. But if you plan on using this to quench your thirst with tacos or a pizza, get bent!!!!! This is not the liquid to do it with! Certified drunks only, please!
