My personal favorite cheap malt liquor. The flavor is not half bad and the smell is inoffensive. My only complaint is the shape of the bottle. It is a bit hard to hold onto unless you have fairly large hands. But overall a very good choice!

In the world of malt liquor this is pretty average.

Bought solely for the purpose of comparing to Smuttlabs Granite State Destroyer.

Paid $2.69. Served very cold. Tastes better than my (very) low expectations. Thin apa adjunct flavor, fairly tasteless but inoffensive. Taste much worse as it warms.

This website seriously wants me to justify my rating by writing a few words about this awful beer?

Clear, yellow appearance with a creamy, white head. Shows good carbonation. There's not much to the smell. Some light grains and some breadiness. Very mild taste. Nothing offensive. Medium mouthfeel. Finishes semi-dry, crisp, and refreshing. Overall, it's inoffensive and enjoyable.

You don't get a colt 45 for the taste. But as far as I'm concerned it's not that bad. Good way to get drunk fast and cheap.

Ol'skool like OE, King Cobra, etc...not for a true beer drinker, poor quality. Drove while drinking one of these in my younger days and got pulled over (days when you think you're invincible) I couldn't find my license and it was in the same spot as always..lucky cop let me go because I worked for state at the time and was a couple of blocks away!! I found out that day about poor quality vs good quality lol!!! Bottoms up!!!

If you're drinking Colt 45 you aren't looking to drink for taste or the experience. You're drinking to get drunk. If I've got 3 bucks I'm wanting to blow colt 45 is a go to. Cheap and doesn't taste god awful either. The key thing to remember though is it's a Colt 45! Gets you drunk, that's it.

40 oz. bottle, with best by date March 09, 2015 printed on the glass bottle. Another cheap malt liquor from the Pabst Brewing Company; expectations are next to nothing.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass, and shared with a friend.

A - Pours the typical dark golden yellow, with excellent clarity and a finger of sudsy white head that dissipates within seconds. Some very thin bubbly lace. Not awful looking, but not great.

S - The aroma is the typical sweetened cereal grains / corn / huskiness. Mild alcohol astringency.

T - Sweet, grainy, corny, husky, syrupy, and lightly medicinal. Inoffensive, for the most part, considering it is an American malt liquor, but it's certainly not good.

M - Feel is medium-full, thick, syrupy, & sweet. Sweetened grainy finish. Crisp carbonation.

Overall, another tick from the bottom of the barrel with plenty more to go. Tastes nearly identical to much of the other similar swill in this style category. Drink it if you've got it, I guess.

Colt 45 Malt Liquor -----2/5.

Honestly, not nearly as bad as I was lead to believe. Pours a pale orange with a thin head. The smell is mild although there is some malt notes. The taste had a nice beginning, but there was a bit of a sour, almost metallic, twinge on the end. Not a great beer, but by no means the worst either.

Very light in color an has a very distinct malt smell. Taste linger in your mouth and not necessarily in a good way. Actually, the 40oz in front of me right now happens to be expired by two months I see. Not skunked though, tastes fine. Watery and incredibly easy to go down.
