Sloppy bright white head of fine bubbles. Reduces to an unattractive clump of crap. Light floral aroma, dandelion and lavendar. Very interesting and unexpected. Light corn and malts also. Color is a medium gold. This is actually a lot better than I expected. Light flavor. Some malts. Soft on the palate. Finishes clean. Little alcohol warming and presence. This one I can actually stomach and is not that bad for what I expected.

Ahhh cheap beer for free.Golden color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little or nothing behind.The aroma was lightly malty with a bit of a fruity side some hints at hops but still a bit on the plain side.The flavor was nasty,afint malt side some corn and a slight sweetness in there but the fruity side never appeared in the taste.More or less it was a dissappointing brew and low on everything but for free i’m not complaining.

Ughsmash (7354) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Bottled. Poured a clear, lighter bright golden with a short-lived white head. Nose was heavy on corn adjuncts and grains, with hints of apple and floral. The first half of the drink is fizzy, alcohol-ey water.. leading to some sweet nondescript malts and apple cidrey notes toward the finish. Fizzy and light on the palate with stinging alcohol notes as this warmed. Tacky, sweet finish. This certainly lacked all semblance of goodness.

Doesn’t taste like malt liquor; which could be good or bad...I’m really suprised how good this tastes. 7% alcohol is discreet as it can be for such a product. If you’re a conesseuir of malt liquor, one may enjoy this selection from the Phillipines.

mynie (44) - Waterloo, Iowa, USA - JUN 6, 2006
Pours like a gold pils with a tiny head that dies quickly. A little sticky ring of white remains. Smells like grain and socks. Not as horrible as it sounds, but not good. Like, take a decent macro and rotten it a bit. Water, socks, european grain. Icky fruit, spoiled hops, sweaty aftertaste. A whole bunch of crap. Wow. Even fancy malt liquor still sucks.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2006
Pours a deep dark gold color. Aromas of fruit, malt, a touch of hops, and apple. Flavor big strong malt, hops, and a touch of menthol like quality. Strong malt and hop aftertaste.

OK Phillipines? Malt Liquor. Smells dry, almost smoky or dusty. Maybe it was made in old oak kegs in a smokehouse. The flavor is quite mellow. Scary stuff really. I can’t say I really want to drink the rest of it. Corn? Maybe some cracked out back woods stuff. This really is a bad bottle of beer.

Had this in the Philippines last July 2005 at a pool hall. Mixed it with a powdered local version of Red Bull. Interesting, if dry (?) taste. Average.

Part of an 8-pack of "International Beer Selections". The whole 8-pack was a bit of a dud, but this one was the only strong lager of the bunch. It’s hard to find a quality malt liquor (does such a thing exist?), and this proves no exception. Corny aroma and taste, but the alcohol is well integrated I guess (I didn’t have to wince upon swallowing).
