cheap (5545) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2011 How about this for a big 24 oz blast, Colts highest ABV. Big white head pour with little visible CO2 in this pale brw. Strong and rude, much more so than any previous colt. Nasty almost gag reflex nellie. Volatile to the olfactory, dzzy halfway thru, wew. Quite sterile.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Can: Served ice cold in a snifter. Pours a lovely golden hue with a puffy white head that diminishes rather thoughtfully. The nose is sweet and savory with a full bouquet of aluminum roses, apple shine and dried autumn corn cobs. The flavor is lively and inviting with a sharp resistance towards balance and a subtle hint of cherry headache medicine. The finish is complex and deceiving. A seductive little number with a unique personality.

Canned from a local QT. The body is dark gold. The nose has some strange fruity apples and potatoes. There is also a little bit of corn. The taste is sweet and fruity with blueberries. There is also some bread crust along with a little bit of beets. This is not bad for what it is, but really sweet and not in a corny way. Strange.

Aurelius (5158) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2013
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.

Can. Pungent nose. Slightly offensive. Lots of corn. Not pleasant. Not pleasant at all ---Rated via intercellular device

DiarmaidBHK (4431) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Tall boy from Dawg. Pours light yellow with an inch of white foam. A bit of corn oil on the nose. An oiliness on the tongue. Not much taste beyond the metallic corn thing. Very watery. Not much alcohol on the tongue which is a little scary. People drink this only to get drunk quickly and cheaply.

This is really interesting stuff for as much as Ive 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 dont exist in this, as there is no such thing as balance, I guess in this style, oh well, I didnt 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 wouldnt come back to this, boy oh boy, not sure who really drinks this stuff, but whoever does, all yours as I wont come back to this.

Totally horrible. BUt dirnkable only for the record. Very strong and sweet but high to swallow after some time.

CanIHave4Beers (4141) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 9, 2016
Can, shared with no one in the bathroom.
Pours a perfectly clear golden color. A vigorous pour produces a big white head that never completely fades & even manages to leave some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is a little sweet & has some cider like qualities. Its got corn & dough, but also some light fruitiness & alcohol.

The flavor is about a low to medium level of sweet with a light herbal bitterness and a bit of alcoholic warmth (although it does conceal the alcohol relatively well for an 8.5 malt likka) its got some corn & some grapeyness... got a little bit of crisp malt.
Maybe Ive just got a thing for Colt 45 brand but this and Double Malt are genuinely enjoyable.

This can is amazing. It has the Colt 45 horse on the back and says, "WorksEveryTime" in great big letters. Yes, 8.5% alcohol will get the job done just quick. I know that for a fact. This is a kind of dissapointingly flavorless malt liquor. Its pretty bad and all, good to get drunk on but ultimately unsatisfying. It is pils yellow in color and its head barely exists. Its nose is of nothing but a faint whiff of cheap beer. Flavor about follows suit but some slight sweetness brings out that classic high gravity malt grape-drink-esque character. There is a bit of alcohol present but nothing too overt. Id say a standard IIPA is worse and that has tons of flavor and this has next to none. So, I dunno, good job Colt 45 guy on a relatively clean and yet still terrible beer.
