Red horse. Pours clear golfen with small fizzy Head. Barely no Aroma except slight malty. Still nice malty fruity mouthfeel. Thin body watery, sweetish, grainy flavor. No palate. Finishes slightly hoppy.

Pours a clear yellow color much like a light lager. Aroma of corn and sulfur. Taste is very metallic with a corn aftertaste. When you first pour the beer it appears light tasting but to my surprise it was more metallic than anything else. Thanks to Dinco for providing me this beer.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2010 I really need to get a phone that has internet access. I had no idea what style of beer this was until popping open the bottle. Once the creamed corn aroma hit me, I figured some kind of Euro lager or malt liqour. Luckily it wasnít expensive, nor horribly awful. Corn aroma, white grape juice, alcohol and more corn. Flavor has some incredible sweetness still left behind and it really reminded me of drinking creamed corn. Creamed corn, some hay and alcohol. I guess in the Phiippines itís this or San Miguel. Heckuva selection.

When it comes to the flavor to be honest this reminds me of cough syrup. The taste of alcohol is so overwhelming. There are some traces of grains and cereal but itís buried. Aroma wise it has a little grains and cereal. As well some alcohol smell Pours a light golden color with a white head. It has a decent amount of carbonation It finishes kinda nasty to be honest. There is a little hops there. I would have to say to date this is the worst beer I have ever had. I couldnít even finish it.

Can, in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Actually looks not that bad, with some delicate lacing. Sour aroma reeks of sulfur and other rankness. Low carbonation, but not so sticky. The flavors are really nasty sour wet grain nastiness, sour towels and wet dog. I thought this one had potential but it doesnít.

Can at Dutch RB Meeting. Clear golden pour, thin white head. Aroma of soap, grains and sour apple. Flavor is sweet malts, grains and sweet soap. Dirty brew. Horrible.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold pour with a fizzy white head and lots of carbonation. Sweet and malty aroma with some hints of corn and grass. Sweet fruity at the start with a strange hint of apple juice. Some bitter and dry grassy hops and malt come through at the middle and lead to a very dry and sweet finish. Not what I was expecting, but actually kind of good.

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 (5770) - 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.
