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.

Can shared by b3shine. Poured clear pale color with a medium frothy white head that mostly lastd with fair lacing. Light grainy malt and small alcohol aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Light to moderate sweet flavor with a light grain sweet finish of short duration. Cold wet alcohol with little character.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Canned @ home. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a white head. Corn, orange, booze, a touch spicy aroma. Grape drank, lemon, grainy corn, tangy flavor. Fairly smooth.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
made sure i froze it an extra 20 min after refrigeration, drink fast and cold. 16 oz can that was dirt cheap.
Pours a bit deeper gold, though still crystal clear than a regular colt 45, the head is again bright white and foamy, it sticks a bit longer than the average malt liquor and leaves tom okay lacing, which is odd because it is higher alcohol than the regular, thank god for additives.
The smell is better here than normal colt, even more of the corn smell is gone, it has a fruitiness to it, slight adjunct feel, dare i say even a hint of yeasty smell.
When cold it tastes alright, bread, caramel, apple cider, hint of walnut, more corn than a regular colt imo though. More gravity inevitably means more corn unfortunately.
The colt 45 beers are probably the best adjunct lagers, but then again, only if your in a pinch would i recommend this.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can at Dahlia’s Pour House. Drank it straight out of the can, so I can only imagine that its pale yellow with a massive white head. The nose is musty, cereal, sugar, light sulphur and sweet pale malt. The taste is pretty sweet, buttered popcorn, light dough, sharp alcohol kick and crunchy nut cornflakes. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Definitely better than expected. Smells nasty, but tastes kinda ok. You get a nice buzz from it anyways.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
16oz can, BIG thanks to b3shine for sharing this. Clear yellow orange color. Minimal white head. Not bad-looking, even for a standard lager. Big corn, bready taste. Big unpleasant bite in the taste, plus sweetness. Bigger body. Soft carbonation. More dry finish. Light citrus in here. Yeah. Could be worse, I guess.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
24 oz can. What’s a road trip to another state if you aren’t 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 doesn’t suck at all. Doesn’t 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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
8.5% ABV 24oz can pours clear gold slick malt liquorness supporting a thin effervescent off white head. The aroma offers up some odd earthy notes, stale cereal, chemical booze and apple juice. The taste goes from sugary apple juice to chemical booze infused cereal notes to thin rings of nail polish remover. This is straight up malt liquor in all its glory, git sum.

Can. Grainy, corny, but otherwise relatively clean. Not as bad as I expected.
