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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I see that the esteemed PorterPounder has beaten me to this gem by several years. Consumed from the Etch-proof Snifter of Courvoisier Alternatives. Tall boy can, which I can envision crumpled at the feet of Bad, Bad Leroy Brown. Clear, specimen gold with an enormous white head. Powdery lager aroma - plain and inoffensive though corny. Surprisingly smooth, low bittering, very slightly sweet, almost flavorless. Medium-light body, slightly tangy finish. ABV is well-masked, and the warming effect is subtle. This may edge King Cobra out as my favorite low-brow malt likka. Picked this baby up from the Circle K on the truck route.
