COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For an extra kick, get some Colt 45 Hight Gravity. It has a higher alcohol percentage than traditional colt 45, so make sure you can handle yours.

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!

Westmeister (2022) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2013
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.

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.

Can shared by b3shine. Poured clear pale color with a medium frothy white head that mostly lastd with fair lacing. Light grainy malt and small alcohol aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Light to moderate sweet flavor with a light grain sweet finish of short duration. Cold wet alcohol with little character.

16 oz. can shared by b3shine. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was moderately sweet corn, grainy, chemical notes, generally not very inviting. The flavor was much of the same; grainy, sweet, corn, grass and some chemical notes. It is what it is.

Niet zo speciaal, heeft hoge alcohol graad maar smaakt zoals een doordeweekse pils, niet veel smaak aan

Drink this fast drink this cold. Itís a great brew when you only have $0.42 to your name, itís cold, your stuck waiting outside for a train for 45 min., and the only thing that might make life more barable is a quick buzz. To get the most bang for your buck I suggest using a knife or key to puncture the bottom side of the can. Place mouth over hole, pop top. If done properly in 10 sec. you will have, and empty can, and ice cream head ache, and a cheap buzz
