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.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
That’s right, Red Horse baby!! Ya!!
Pours clear gold with thin white head. The aroma is pretty strong with sweet sugary malts, some spice hops, some cereal and some off notes that are, well off. The high level of carbonation explodes with sweet white table sugar malts, mild spice hops mixed with some malt staleness sometimes found in organic beers. Being the label states “World Class Premium Malt Liquor” the score must suffer since it just doesn’t taste good. Who are they fooling with this World Class Premium nonsense?

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2008 Bottle from BevMo. Pours a clear medium golden color. The beer has a grainy fusel type of smell. Grainy malt liquor sweetness. Not really a terrible malt liquor.

I drank a lot of this in the Philippines, and maybe it was just in comparison to the other San Miguels (or the fact that I never paid more than about $.40/bottle), but I didn’t think it was all that bad. Yes, not a very exciting palate and a slightly watery body, but it made for a refreshing drinky! Insider’s tip: look for a bottle with a smiling horse on it- this means the beer has extra alcohol!
