3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

While itís in the can it smells like rich malts, caramel, and rotting tomatoís. 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!

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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2010 Rolliní with mydudes. Yellow pour with a nice sized white head. Aroma is booze, spoiled dark fruit, and grain. Flavor is similar but adds some nice plum, grape, raisin, and other rotting dark fruits into the mix. Reminds me a bit of westy 12 in the department. Booze becomes apparent when it warms and kind of stands off on itís own.

Was kind of terrified to sip this, because my last malt liquor experience ruined my palate for a long while. Thankfully, this wasnít nearly so terrible. Gold pour with a bubbly white head. Straightforward sweet corn and honey nose. Has a simple, inoffensive corny flavor, sweet throughout. It would not be hard to finish a 24 of this.
