kramer (5611) - 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.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 25, 2010
Bottle from Beers of the World. Pours a clear golden body with a quick fizzy white head. Aroma is bready, some candy, malts, booze. Flavor is pretty decently sweet, with that weird malt liqour taste. Definately sweet overall, not too bad but you can tell its a malt. If I was in the Philippines I would be riding the Red Horse.

SamsCellar (24) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2010
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, Iím actually impressed.

sebletitje (8269) - 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 canít 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 aromaÖNothing 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. Iíd actually order this beer if I was in the Philippines (based on the only other Pilipino brew Iíve had that is).
