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, I’m actually impressed.

sebletitje (7156) - 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 can’t stand the use of starch in beer.

Served from a 12 oz bottle while on travel. Pours a bit of an amber. Nose and flavors are sweet grape, pilsner malts, some rice.

best to start with this as switching from something lighter is tough. obviously not a standard american malt liquor, but enjoyable none the less!

12oz can brought straight from the Philippines by a girl at work. Well carbonated straw yellow pour with minimal head. Lightly sweet, corn hints and cereal grains in the aroma…Nothing really off. Lightly sweet but with everything in good proportion. The sweet, grain, and alcohol flavors blend together very nicely and make this malt liquor quite drinkable. Certainly as drinkable was Colt 45 IMO but not was carbonated. A bit wet too which actually makes this quenching. I’d actually order this beer if I was in the Philippines (based on the only other Pilipino brew I’ve had that is).

Gold,large lasting white head.Salty,beery nose.Lighy sweetness, grainy,faint but noticeable hop end.Light alcohol heat. I found it drinkable, and not as bad as others seem to think

Bottle. Pours golden yellow in color with a foamy white head. The nose is mostly sweet corn with a chemical kick. Flavor isn’t offensive at all, maybe a little heavy on the alcohol kick, but that is expeccted with a Malt Liquor. I’d drink it again.

I can only assume this beer is good based on the few "real" ratings by "real" beer drinkers. Pours a clear pale gold with a small, fizzy white head. Considerable lacing. Aroma of sweet corny adjuncts and some pils malt. Syrupy sweet with no hops or decent flavor. Leaves a rather bad taste and feel in the mouth. Light bodied sugar water.
