The aroma is sweet yet with a sharp tartness, slightly metallic, a bit of green apple. The taste is sweet with a sour finish. Any individual flavors are hard to discern. It is more drinkable than some higher alcohol malt liquors, but in and of itself it is not very enjoyable. Colt 45 Double Malt is good, the regular Colt 45 is okay out of a bottle, but this is too sweet and too sour all at once.
