1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted on 8/9/12 from a 24oz can purchased at a gas station. Pours clear brassy golden with an average white head that leaves fizzy lace. The nose is sweet corny malt with some alcoholic heat. The flavor is exactly the same with maybe just a touch of light bitterness. The body is light with lively, fizzy carbonation, and a short corny malt finish.
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. edgallow (4619) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2017
Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts, grass and some earthy notes. Taste is sweet malts and grains meccahh69lol (366) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - SEP 14, 2017
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. unclemike (3195) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - AUG 1, 2017
his brew poured a small head of white medium sized bubbles that quickly disappeared leaving a carbonated weak light yellow body. It has that typical low quality rice beer aroma and a fizzy flavor. There is no real character to this gassy beverage. landocalrissian (1) - - JUL 3, 2017 does not count
Colt 45. It works every time! Love ya baby! Lando C. The aroma is out of this world, the appearance is luscious as can be, the taste is .......my lawd...my lawd......the palate....palate? Is that Italian? Overall.....it works EVERY TIME.

Bottle shared at Cotteridge convention 05/03/2016. Thanks to team Boost. A pale yellow coloured pour with no head. Aroma is spicy sweet wort, veg, sweet grains, sweaty. Flavour is composed of sweet grains, apple, tangy apple. Palate is sweet, moderate carbonation, grainy. Not a fan. DavidWoodruff (631) - Windsor, California, USA - JUN 21, 2017
Pale gold with an abundant white head. Doughy sweet aroma. A little sweet with a minor amount of alcohol dryness. No real hop bitterness. Blander than I would have guessed for a malt liquor. Short finish. Quite forgettable. wlajwl (7201) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 13, 2017
Works for a couple sips/chugs ice cold with no real taste, then pretty much like every other cheap pale lager. StoutBeerReviews (274) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2017

This is not a beer I enjoy. Definitely not one I would buy for myself or friends unless requested.
