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

24 oz can. Thanks brandon. Pours crystal clear pale gold with short lived white head. Mild musky corny nose. Fizzy medium body. Toast and sweetened corn nuts on the mid palate. Long sticky sweetish corn finish.

16 oz. can shared by b3shine. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was moderately sweet corn, grainy, chemical notes, generally not very inviting. The flavor was much of the same; grainy, sweet, corn, grass and some chemical notes. It is what it is.

"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."

b3shine (6155) - Indiana, USA - JAN 19, 2013
16 oz can to pint. Time to go swinswillin. Visually, this slop wasnít offensive; a transparent orange with fluffy white head that dissipates into lacing. Then things take a turn for the worse. The scent is one of cheap, doughy nastiness, with the taste being identical. Bad on the palate too. This should only be sold in Iowa.

PorterPounder (5879) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2010
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.

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.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Can: Served ice cold in a snifter. Pours a lovely golden hue with a puffy white head that diminishes rather thoughtfully. The nose is sweet and savory with a full bouquet of aluminum roses, apple íshine and dried autumn corn cobs. The flavor is lively and inviting with a sharp resistance towards balance and a subtle hint of cherry headache medicine. The finish is complex and deceiving. A seductive little number with a unique personality.

kramer (5244) - 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.

OOOOh, baby! 24oz can by NOV2513, youíre damn right itís cold! Nose? What nose?! Pours clear but healthy golden with a fizzy, oily white head. Medium body very sweet, alcohol masterfully hidden, no bitterness, but even the corn is hidden. No bread or grain or those kinds of shenanigans, this is horse-kick swill that goes down smooth. Oh, but faint florality. Having had the standard version his very evening, I can now say with earned authority (and to the dismay of all those who ever tried to make something out of me) that I prefer regular Colt 45 for an extended night of drinking, but the sweeter and denser High Gravity Lager Colt 45 is a treat reserved for more contemplative occasions. But itíll gitcha drunk! WOOOO!
