Bottle from By The Bottle in Vancouver, WA--The low score here is not justified. This beer is not that great, but better than this score indicates. Golden, copper body with a tiny whitish head. Sweet, malty, sharp, tart, gritty feel. Mild hoppiness. Adjunct-y to some degree. Good end of the day brew. Not that great, though.

"Lucked" into one of these at a party in Manila. Locals warned me that it was a "strong beer". At least it was in a dark bottle.

355ml Bottle - The Liquor Collection - Honolulu, Hawaii
Aroma – Very light aroma. Malty but very light.
Appearance – Light golden color, fluffy head and clear.
Flavor – Very light malt liquor flavor. Felt like it was the light beer brewed for the second time with spent grains. Very very light in flavor.
Palate – Decent Mouthfeel, some texture with a semi finish.
Overall – A very light malt beer. This was just not my cup of tea. Or rather they used tea bags for malt wort.

Bottle: Gold, light white head and some lacing. The nose is sharp with some sweet grain and some subtle hop notes. The flavor is balanced, light alcohol and adequately clean. Smooth finish. Yum!

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2013 Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is very fruity for a malt liquor. The taste is very light bodied with a fruity taste.

Ok I bought this simply because it was a bottle I had never seen before. Pours out a dark piss yellow with little to no head. Smell kinda makes you cringe, very sugary and boozy with some shitty hops thrown intothe mix. I knew this was a malt liquor by the smell alone before I even got to ratebeer. Now for the taste, Oh fuck me......this is bad. Imagine cat piss and sugar mixed together with a side of rotten veggie and that is this beer. I’m so pissed I have 5 more of these left. Japan is really starting to suck with it beer selection.......I miss home already.

Bottle. This one had been sitting in the fridge for a while, as I kind of neglected it. I do have a penchant for malt liquors though, so here goes. Pours a fizzy yellow, no head. Aroma is pretty corny, a touch of grain. The flavor is a moderately pleasant sweet grain/corniness that I kind of enjoyed. Following the pleasant portion of the beer was the unpleasant portion which consisted of a sour/alcohol mix that made the finish somewhat intolerable. Was thin and carbonated. In all reality, it was not THAT bad.

pours gold color with a white head. aroma of grain and alcohol. flavor is alcoholly and grainy, the fouth feel is wateryand the finish is nothing. i suppose if you want to get drunk, this might do the trick, but not a good entry by any means.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2008 Bought at a shop in Angeles City. Surprisingly easy to drink and not offensive. Most San Miguel products I’ve had have been skunked, but this being bought fairly fresh in the P.I. it didn’t have any foul odors or flavors. One of the better malt liquors I’ve had, actually.
