UPDATED: OCT 19, 2018 This is iffy at being a beer. But, it has a unique malty aroma and taste. In college a pint was 99 cents and that was your night. Only drawback is the next day headache. I gave it a high rating for nostalgia reasons. Best drank with bottle in brown bag. In West Philadelphia this beer is king. Very different but still a nice alternative

Clear golden colour, white head. Malty aroma, grains, loads of banana. Sweet flavour. Alcoholic finish.
(from 24oz. can @ our New Jersey hideout)

Can. I remember the old black and white commercials when I was a little kid with a dude at a table and bulls, sharks and other things around him in different commercials while a cool song played in the background. Malt liquor itself is not so good.

Appearance: Pale golden. Clear. Finger of medium white bubbles. Nose: Lightly roasted malts, a little bread dough and light sweetness. Taste: Light sweet malt with just a touch of grain and perhaps herbal hops. Body: Light, fluid and lively. Parting thoughts: 0 expectations. Bought on a whim because I was in Walmart and they had a 24 oz can for $1 and change. Pleasantly surprised. I’ve certainly had harsher Malt Liquors. Pabst, quietly is making low cost, decent products.

24 ounce can into lager glass, best before 8/27/2018. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit of fruity aromas, but not overwhelming. Nice and pleasant aromas with pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Very mild herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness of pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finish. Very clean on lager flavors, with minimal fruity notes present. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Minimal warming alcohol for 5.6%. Overall this is a good malt liquor. All around nice robustness of pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop flavors; smooth, crisp, clean, and pretty refreshing to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Very clean and nicely rich barley/grain flavors and mild earthy hop balance. Not overdone on the corn adjuncts at all. A nicely enjoyable offering. Well made and spot on style example.

This is another old school beer for me. Don't think I actually ever bought it to try, but remember my uncle would have it every now and then. For malt liquor, I'd say Mickey's may have this one hands down, but it could somewhere in between that and Ole E. When it comes to swill, I think I actually prefer malt liquor....something about the malty taste I like.

The appearance is obvious, since it is sold in clear bottles. The aroma is light and bready, maybe with a bit of hay and prone to staleness if the bottle is not fresh. The real winner here is the taste: mildly grainy and mildly sweet. The palate is mild with a smooth finish and not too much carbonation, which is a welcome change from most malt liquors. Overall: a drinkable beverage that is rather light for its category.

Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts, grass and some earthy notes. Taste is sweet malts and grains

Ah yes, the infamous Colt 45, Lando Calrissian's favorite and a teenage drinking entry point for us both. Pleasantly surprised that this isn't as gross as expected and it gets a nice nostalgia bump. The smell is dank fetid swamp frat basement and the look is well clearish piss. The taste is deceptively smooth and goes down better than expected really. This isn't a choke downer like Steel Reserve, but that is likely due to the modest ABV where most malt liquors are way up there. No need to brass monkey this one! Good for lazy Thursdays of Halt and Catch Fire, grabbing an inhaler to relieve the illness in your lungs, and getting hopping mad at the confusing auto enrollment 401K policy of your company.
