UPDATED: MAR 19, 2013 Bottle in NYC, shared at Sanderís apartment while playing Scrabble. This bottle has no less than three years of age on it, so here we go. Pours clear gold with a white foam head. Bit of apple on the nose, also malt and hints of booze. Very sweet flavor, some cake, booze, apple. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warm finish, plenty of sugar and aged malts. Bad and mostly unenjoyable. Impressive, though, in some backwards way in that between five grown men we were unable to finish a single bottle. (2.0)

Bottle shared at Bruceís. Definitely a lot better than the last bottle I tried. Lots of honey and apple in the nose. Sweet, boozy flavor, some rubbing alcohol, ripe fruits, grains. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Bland finish, light cereal. Not bad. Somewhat bland overall. (2.6)

My bottle doesnít say anything about extra strong but it is the exact label pictured here, except it donít say extra strong though it does say 7%. Smell is that of an older lager. Pour is pale yellow. Taste is that of beer laced with cheap whiskey. Wew. Yes, all the attributes of rude cheap high alky american lager but its made in the phillipines, eh. Difficult and at times almost triggers the gag reflex, but not quite full out. Decent carbonation for such a high alky beer. Yep, the finish reminds me of a mild boilermaker if you know what that is. I think Iím getten a little buzz off this 12 oz bottle.

12 oz. bottle. Label reads "Red Horse Malt Liquor." I seem to be punishing myself with some of my recent choices. I wonder what Freud would say. Pours a pale, clear gold with thin white head that vaporized almost immediately and left no lace at all. The aroma is very weak malt along with just a hint of floral hops. The flavor is equally bland. There is no finish on this beer, it just sort of ends. Not something I would revisit.

Color is golden blonde. White small head that quickly disappears. Aroma of malt and pepper. Flavor dominated by alcoholic taste with simple malt and simple hop bitterness. Medium body.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2011
Golden blond coloured beer with little carbonation and a short white head. Malty sweet almost skunky grainy aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is bitter malty, alcoholic flavoured. Very medium.

Poured a pale yellow color with a thin white head that faded quickly. Aroma is kinda gross and skunky. Some light fruit, but not much else. Taste at first has some light sweetness with skunky flavors. Transitions into a cardboard gross taste. Alcohol is well hidden at least. Aftertaste is bad, mostly cardboard. Not great.

Head disappears almost immediately. Tastes of lightly roasted malts. Strong on the flavour of alcohol.

355ml bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a clear, light yellowish body with a small, bubbly, white head.

Smell: Faintly sweet-scented cereal grains entirely awash with cheap, unwholesome liquor.

Taste: Slight sweetness, some cereal accents, with a joining in of floral hops, but, then it grows coarse and boozy, as a flood of rotgut surges in. Low bitterness. Warming finish that ramps up to deliver a lingering tongue singe.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: Red Horse is harsh, but it was expectedly harsh. Even among its pernicious brethren, itís pretty low on the totem pole.

The higher alcohol content gives it some taste over the other san Miguel varieties in Philippines, but itís pretty average in the grand scheme of things. Good beer to liven up the action at a Philippino cock fight.
