3/5 rDev +35.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: It is exactly what malt liquor is supposed to look like. I don't particularly find it an attractive beer but it looks the same as the rest of the malt liquors. Clear pale golden yell with a few specs of lace spotted here and there.
Smell: Grain. There is a hint of lemon grass but mostly it is a reserved grain aroma.
Taste: This is much less cloying than some Malt Liquors so to that extent I am actually pleasantly surprised; though I also must admit it tastes like a $1.50 pint. Certainly grain and corn hit the tongue and remind me of many macros. Undoubtedly better than many in its style though and certainly cheaper too.
Mouthfeel: Even considering the style, there is simply no body here to hold up the carbonation. Maybe this fault aids in the drinkability to the average Joe, but this is the beers weakest point IMO.
Drinkability: There are certainly occasions for this but not when you are interested in contemplating your beers complexity. It is an approachable 6.10% ABV if you see what I am getting at.
Hope this is helpful.

2012 Colt 45 - Reviewed 11/11/2012
Appearance: Looks like beer, I really can’t think of any more adjectives that I haven't already used in describing every other 40 I've reviewed thusfar. Not as beer colored as regular beer. Not as day-glo orange as hurricane.
Smell: Citrusy and piney on the nose, slight hints of vanilla and bourbon caress the senses. Also smells a bit like soap. or actually more like hand moisturizer.
Taste: Billy Dee Williams wasn't bullsh*tting when he exclaimed that Colt 45, "works every time." I think he means that Colt 45 tastes like the ghetto man's chloroform. By my estimation, it would take 1.35 Colt 45's to incapacitate even the most portly of ladies... but I digress. Colt flows smooth and sweet with cornyness on par with the fact that they made Lando Calrissian their spokesperson. Light hints of the aforementioned moisturizer come through right after the astringent alcohol burn.
Mouthfeel: Slimy, like owls boogers. I think they make it that way so that once you put it in your mouth, it slips into your belly before you have a chance to spit it out. On the plus side, this does make Colt 45 one of the most drinkable malt liquors to date, assuming drinkability is measured by 40's per hour. [Mental note: invent a vehicle in which its speed measured in 40's per hour.]
Overall: Afroman didn't write a song about Olde English, because there is no better way to enjoy a night of easy livin' like a Colt 45 and a couple of spliffs. [Now legal for recreational us in Colorado and Washington.] Weighing in at 6.1% alcohol by volume, Colt is the second most boozy beer we've tasted this year. Want to get ghetto girl wasted without having to sacrifice your taste buds? Look no further than Colt 45. It works every time.
