look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Presentation: 24 oz can, they call it a "TWO FOUR" on the label, no freshness date to be found anywhere.
Appearance: Pale golden yellow colour, two fingered head forms from a spritzy big bubbled carbonation. Very thin sprinkled white lace is left, something is better than nothing right?
Smell: Both a sweetness from the malt and cereal grain as well as the alcohol. Smells faint of trifle, lady fingers in alcohol.
Taste: Stiff medium body with an increasing smoothness as the carbonation unleashes. Slightly creamy mouth feel shows that there is a decent amount of malt in this brew. As soon as the flavours rush in sweet warming alcohol fumes from the mouth and nose. Grain and sweetness are the forefront, touch of corn grit flavour and a cracker like maltiness come from that. Hops are barley in the flavour though there is a sharpness from them that essentially is the bitterness which is coupled with the warming alcohol and graininess. A biting grain and warming alcohol warp things up in the end.
Notes: Not a bad brew when wanting to quickly consume for a buzz. One of the most known malt liquors on the market, this is typically consumed out of the can or more popularly out of the 40 oz bottle.
A friend of mine always brings over a couple "FOUR Os" of this stuff as a gag ... funny thing is that we end up polishing the stuff off everytime.

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.
