UPDATED: AUG 30, 2010 Bottle. Dark golden pour, medium head. Aroma is malty, some grains, very faint hops. Flavour is a nice balance between sweet and bitter. The higher abv isnít noticeable. Dangerous beer in this (Philippines) climate. Bottle is way better than the can, as with all the San Miguel beers.

Pours an average corn water with a white head that dies immediately. The nose is sweet of corn, raisins, & grainy metallic notes.The nose is surprisingly pleasant. Flavor is strangely flat. Sweet with the quickest finish of any beer Iíve ever tried. No aftertaste, but it does leave a medicine/alcohol flavor in the mouth.This isnít good, but itís far better than some of the ratings here suggest. I paid $1.39 for a 12 ounce bottle at the Breeze Thru in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

kramer (5172) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear bright gold body with a fizzy thin two finger white head that faded quickly. The nose is sweet corn and a slight metallic note. The flavor is horribly sweet with tons of corn sugar and a touch of alcohol. Sticky clingy mouthfeel with fizzy carbonation. Pretty horrible, even for a Malt Liquor.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 25, 2010
Bottle from Beers of the World. Pours a clear golden body with a quick fizzy white head. Aroma is bready, some candy, malts, booze. Flavor is pretty decently sweet, with that weird malt liqour taste. Definately sweet overall, not too bad but you can tell its a malt. If I was in the Philippines I would be riding the Red Horse.

SamsCellar (24) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Pours a very pale yellow/straw color, white fizzy head. A sweet, refreshing smell. No trace of hops in the aroma, but there is a slight hint of yeast. Easy drinking malt liquor, almost pilsner in character. "Sweet" is the dominant flavor, and it hides the %7 ABV well. Questionable aftertaste... not quite bitter, but leaves an odd film on the roof of my mouth and tongue. Based on my low expectations, Iím actually impressed.

sebletitje (6969) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 16, 2010
can, courtesy of Tony @ OTH. pours clear golden, white head. aroma mostly sweet pale malts, some wheat flavor, overly sweet, enhanced version of the pale pilsen, some extra malty notes, fizzy carbonation and the nasty use of corn starch to cover any bad use of ingredients and extra sweetner. Not bad, but just canít stand the use of starch in beer.
