1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma is crisp and malty, rather strong, nothing to Tweet about but still promising. It pours a clear straw yellow with a fluffy and not very persistent white head, about what one expects from beer of this type. Flavor is - well, there is a hint of malt, but not much to it. Texture is smooth and fairly fizzy, but body is below average. Well, the Philippines are not renowned for beer. Maybe we should send some craft brewers over there - or some Trappist monks. ;)

12 ounce bottle. It pours a clear light gold with a decent white head. Aroma of grain and malt. The taste is grain and malt. A bit metallic. Nothing else.

"Red Horse - Kicks Like a Horse" goes the ad, or at least it would if I wrote it. And, so it does. Not much flavor, not much anything (other than alcohol). But it does the job it is supposed to do. And, Iíll leave it at that. This beer got me through the summer visit to the in-laws in the Philippines, and for that I thank it.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
