Colt 45 High Gravity Lager has a thick, white head and a clear, golden color. Carbonation is moderate to high. The aroma is of corn and malt, but not particularly strong. The taste is surprisingly mild for an 8.5% abv beer. This drink does not taste strong, if anything, it has a stereotypical beer flavor, so I’d say the alcohol is pretty much hidden. Mouth-feel is moderately heavy. This finished crisp, which was a further surprise. I thought Colt 45 HG (poured from a 16 oz. can) was very full-flavored and enjoyable. I recommend giving this one a try. By the way, it is NOT available in Louisiana. I bought it on a road trip in New York City.

Pours yellow, with a white head. Aroma is corn, grain, malt, and a little fruit. Flavor is corn, fruit, grain, and alcohol. Not too bad, certainly drinkable. ordybill (1759) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2015
I bought this as a goof for my 700th beer on beer advocate. It is really a lot better than I expected. It isn’t world class. But for the price and the flavor/ABV it rates pretty darn high. Pour it in a pint glass and give it a try. You may be surprised.

Finally had it. Not bad if consumed cold. The chill masks the nasty corn taste that comes along with this fine brew. I still need to have it in a forty to have a complete opinion. Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2010
Bought at TERRIBLE HERBST gas station on Russell road, Las Vegas! A bad beer, but drinkable ice cold, otherwise a corn ridden crappy beer, but drinkable ice cold, reminds me of some cheap Russian/Dutch forte lagers! lol.... mikske79 (1668) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - JUL 4, 2014
Niet zo speciaal, heeft hoge alcohol graad maar smaakt zoals een doordeweekse pils, niet veel smaak aan DietPepsican (1591) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JUN 27, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2010 Rollin’ with mydudes. Yellow pour with a nice sized white head. Aroma is booze, spoiled dark fruit, and grain. Flavor is similar but adds some nice plum, grape, raisin, and other rotting dark fruits into the mix. Reminds me a bit of westy 12 in the department. Booze becomes apparent when it warms and kind of stands off on it’s own. raphael (1256) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 21, 2010
smell of sour corn, light malt syrup & distant acetone. bright yellow w/ lots of bubbles and minimal head. dries up and sours the mouth. tastes of water, white sugar, alcohol. a little crisper than other malt liquors.
