I am assuming this is what i had, but who knows. It was labeled Colt 45 HG and it was 8.5%. Since I dont want to add another rating I will put it here until further notice. Corny sweet and metallic nose. Can isnt that cool. It is not sinister looking, it is sleek and silver, and not how I like my malt liquor cans. Light bodied and drinkable at 8.5%, corny and sweet, but not much else. Drinkability is decent.

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.

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.

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.

made sure i froze it an extra 20 min after refrigeration, drink fast and cold. 16 oz can that was dirt cheap. Pours a bit deeper gold, though still crystal clear than a regular colt 45, the head is again bright white and foamy, it sticks a bit longer than the average malt liquor and leaves tom okay lacing, which is odd because it is higher alcohol than the regular, thank god for additives. The smell is better here than normal colt, even more of the corn smell is gone, it has a fruitiness to it, slight adjunct feel, dare i say even a hint of yeasty smell. When cold it tastes alright, bread, caramel, apple cider, hint of walnut, more corn than a regular colt imo though. More gravity inevitably means more corn unfortunately. The colt 45 beers are probably the best adjunct lagers, but then again, only if your in a pinch would i recommend this. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-03-2010 04:45:31

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.

24 oz can. Whats a road trip to another state if you arent ticking malt likkas in the hotel room? Clear pale gold pour with a small soapy white head. As far as malt likkas go, this one doesnt suck at all. Doesnt have that awful grapey-aroma that many do. Grainy lager, tastes like a little heavier BMC pale lager. Not very good, but not really offensive either.

What cab I say? This is urban wino fuel, and not at all appealing to the flavor minded drinker. Okee-dokee... it pours a yellow brew with a fast fading over-carbonated head and tastes like the ghetto brew its meant to be. Yech!

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2016 The mirrors image, It tells me its home time, But Im not finished, Cause youre not by my side. And as I arrived I thought I saw you leaving, Carrying your shoes, Decided that once again I was just dreaming, Of bumping into you. Now its three in the morning, And Im trying to change your mind, Left you multiple missed calls And to my message you reply. Whyd you only call me when youre high? High Whyd you only call me when youre high? Somewhere darker, Talking the same shite, I need a partner, Well are you out tonight? Its harder and harder to get you to listen, More I get through the gears, Incapable of making alright decisions, And having bad ideas.
