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.

Can. Poured dark clear orange. Head film. Very sweet aroma. Tangy sweet semi fizzy taste.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

What cab I say? This is urban wino fuel, and not at all appealing to the flavor minded drinker. Okee-dokee... it pours a yellow brew with a fast fading over-carbonated head and tastes like the ghetto brew it’s meant to be. Yech!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From the 710 ml. can no. OCT0410-D07021828. The pour is a vibrant clear yellow with constant carbonation and a fairly long lasting but very thin off-white head and some thin lacing to boot. The aroma is of malts, corn, and a very thin and distant hoppiness. The mouthfeel is heavier than water but not as heavy as a good micro. The taste is malty and grainy with a thin hop bite at the finish. The 8.5% ABV is not as noticeable as some HG malt liquors I have had. Is it something I would buy all the time? No. But for a malt liquor it does the trick....
One additional note: I actually had to add a place to RB so I could tell everyone where I bought it (Metro Mart) because it is the ONLY place in New Hampshire I have ever seen it.

Picked up a 24 ounce can of Colt 45 High Gravity @ Carool’s Liquor Store in Camden, NJ for a $1.34. Drank half iced cold out of the can and the other half poured into a short glass. High Octane Malt Liquor, one trick pony as an alcohol delivery system. Wet rag aroma, however, presentable golden bodied beer. By far the cheapest buzz for me in 2010. If I lived on fifty bucks a week this would be my beer of choice.

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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is really interesting stuff for as much as I’ve had it before I got into better stuff, here goes:
It pours a clear golden color leaving more a hazy body. There is no head and barely any lacing. What lacing there is is somewhat spotty. The smell is all about the malts, hops don’t exist in this, as there is no such thing as balance, I guess in this style, oh well, I didn’t make it. The taste is once again, malts, sugary and sweet, no balance again whatsoever. The palate is raw and harsh on the tongue, at about a light to medium. Overall, yeah, I wouldn’t come back to this, boy oh boy, not sure who really drinks this stuff, but whoever does, all yours as I won’t come back to this.
