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 Iíve 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 donít exist in this, as there is no such thing as balance, I guess in this style, oh well, I didnít 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 wouldnít come back to this, boy oh boy, not sure who really drinks this stuff, but whoever does, all yours as I wonít come back to this.

A golden color with a white head as expected. The aroma smells like pee and corn. So far this isnít going well. The flavor is rather mild for jacked up ABV malt liquor. I expect that harsh paint thinner like burn but none of that here. The flavor is slightly sweet with corn, cooked veggies, and a bit of creamy mouthfeel. I fear I might be talking myself into liking this. Its still pretty bad but Im not making a face with every sip. And that is the criteria I go for in this style.

Canned @ home. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a white head. Corn, orange, booze, a touch spicy aroma. Grape drank, lemon, grainy corn, tangy flavor. Fairly smooth.

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!

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I bought this expecting it to be just another cheap malt beer, but it was a lot better than expected!
Pours the expected golden yellow, and had a head with bubbles of many sizes and some lacing that stood for a lot longer than expected. The taste was of a light grassy, almost paper bag taste with a hint of corn with a slight burn and a dash of rotten apple. Not bad, but not great. Finishes with a slight burn and bitter after taste.
This is not the kind of beer you drink and say "I just like the taste". this is a cheap beer designed to get you drunk. At 8.5 percent this is definitely a good choice with only a slight deficit for taste!

24oz big boy can. Found this gem at a sketchy place downtown. Bought some cheap incense and a black n mild as well. Smell is corn booze and white grape mixed but mild as hell. Was hoping the 8.5% would pop more. Wow - big sugary sweet, apple, spoiled grapes. Messy and really not enjoyable. Big flavor just not the right flavor.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can at home, sans paper sack and wife beater. Pours brilliantly clear gold with a large, rocky white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is creamed corn and Pils malt, light wet brown paper sack notes and not much else. Flavor is sweet corn and Pils malt, wet paper sacks, light peppery alcohol, floral and cheap perfume notes with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. Damn, this beer works every time; gotta love the black and gold bull can.

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.
