Big 24 oz (says "two four" on the can for those who can't read numbers... why doesn't it just read "twenty four?") can picked up at the grocery store for 99 cents. If you get a chance, watch old Colt 45 commercials on you tube....they are hilarious.
A - Pale gold and clear with a short lived half-finger head of fizzy bubbles that turns into a thin layer of bubbles on top of the brew. Lots of champagne bubble float to the top.
S - PBR on steroids. This has a distinctly Heileman aroma that tells me that this used to be a classic, and is now relegated to ghetto status. It's odd to think that our white collar grandfathers came home from a day at the office and kicked back out at the country club with something that is now pretty much for the homeless to drink out of a can still in the paper sack it came in.
T - Sweet corn on the cob with butter. Very buttery and salty with some actual hop flavors that show up mid-palate. Again, this is very much like PBR with muscles....and a turbocharger. Much less offensive than other malt liquors. I actually really like this!
M - Medium bodied but somehow still watery with lively carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel.
D - Excellent! A great cheapo beer that is far superior to other malt liquors. This is the one ghetto beer that I actually enjoy. Maybe our grandpas had it better than I thought!

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.
