2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s quite delectable, and I strongly feel the gravitas. $1.99 for a 24 oz. can. Good transaction and would buy again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Was kind of terrified to sip this, because my last malt liquor experience ruined my palate for a long while. Thankfully, this wasn’t 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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden yellow with a thick white head. This had a faint honey aroma. The flavor was kind of sweet with some alcohol burn in the background. Very drinkable.

Pours a pale golden straw color with off white head. Aroma of sweet malt and corn. Flavor is a sweet malt and corn adjuncts. Pretty smooth likka.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours to a nice looking white head that hangs around for a while and tries to lace, but then it craps out to a thin ring. Color is light gold. Aroma is sweet corn and veggies--there’s some malt in there too. Flavor is sweet, tangy, clean, boozy and corn-syrupy as hell--just what it should be. Finish is all alcohol and corn. Mouthfeel is light and dry and more like brandy or vodka. Overall, a decent buzzer that plays to its audience well.

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.

This can is amazing. It has the Colt 45 horse on the back and says, "WorksEveryTime" in great big letters. Yes, 8.5% alcohol will get the job done just quick. I know that for a fact. This is a kind of dissapointingly flavorless malt liquor. It’s pretty bad and all, good to get drunk on but ultimately unsatisfying. It is pils yellow in color and it’s head barely exists. Its nose is of nothing but a faint whiff of cheap beer. Flavor about follows suit but some slight sweetness brings out that classic high gravity malt grape-drink-esque character. There is a bit of alcohol present but nothing too overt. I’d say a standard IIPA is worse and that has tons of flavor and this has next to none. So, I dunno, good job Colt 45 guy on a relatively clean and yet still terrible beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
