2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stopped by Zeke’s roadhouse and was looking to get some odd country ratings. When I saw Philippines I was like hell yea, than when I found out I am finally getting a Malt Liquor rate I was more than enthused. Pours pale yellow with wet cardboard aroma but not in unpleasant way. Tastes super malty, and light hops, a touch of basement floor. I thought it was a fine beer for what it is. I was warned that this is strong by bartender he clearly doesn’t know me.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Jan 2009: from BA. Found this beer in an Oriental Supermarket in Ghent, Belgium. The well used, obviously returnable orangey brown bottle held 500ml of beer, the rear label quoted 6.46% ABV.
Poured into a ’La Chouffe’ tulip glass three times.
Very pale urine colour with a good clean white foaming head on each pour. Carbonisation bubbles rising through the weak looking body throughout the review. The heads fell away from their original large toppings to a thinner but still deep covering.
No aroma for me, not even a hint of malts, so it got my normal 3 for a non smelling lager style beer.
There is a smattering of hops and malt in the taste but other than that nothing I could find at all. The alcohol is evident from the outset and because the beer is so thin in the mouthfeel and without any body, it takes over very easily and becomes the main feature.
I’m no expert on this style but this can’t be a good example surely?

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is one of my favorite beers, but I must say the Imported is sold as Malt liquor in the US and is horrible compared to the Philippine version. Not a fair comparison.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle courtesy of Beerandblues2 at the Baltimore Irish Chanukah tasting, 3/17/12. Pours a clear golden color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grassy hops with a soapy note. The taste is grassy hops, grainy notes. Crisp, and not to bad, though not good. Thin bodied.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Strong corn in the sweet and lightly boozy aroma. Clear pale golden body is topped by a fizzy, white, rapidly and fully diminishing head. Flavour follows the aroma - lots of corn and quite sweet but there is some bitterness to take the edge off. Almonds/marzipan in the aftertaste. Watery texture with rather strong carbonation. Not my cup of tea. Shaker glass. Fridge temperature. Can (8%) purchased at Brewery Creek in February 2012.
