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.

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!

Cereal grains with honey on the nose. Blonde with no head. Cereal, sweet malts, slight honey in the flavor. Its crisp with a dry finish. Its not great but its not horrible.

Apple juice looking body. Small head, no retention or lacing. Looks pretty much what you would think a malt liquor poured into a glass looks like. Creamed corn and battery acid on the nose, along with some cereal grain and fruit. I can’t describe what this tastes like, other than to say that it tastes like burning. The others I tasted this with thought it was OK, but I can honestly say it’s one of the worst things I’ve ever tasted. I’m giving it a 2 because apparently I like to torture myself and continued to drink almost the whole sample. Maybe I am just not as well versed in this style as the "Grand Masta of Malt Likka" Ibrew2or3. Or maybe my taste buds are the only ones that still work. Who can say? Mouthfeel is thin and watery but ultimately OK for the style. Finish is pretty long, corn and acidic notes again present. My mother taught me to say something nice so well......ummmm......the cap is cool?

Dave lost a lot of goodwill from me personally by making us drink this. Know that ;)!

12oz bottle. Poured a medium and clear golden yellow color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of corn, grainy, and lightly fruity. Tastes of sweet corn, grains, and a trace of fruitiness.

Bought in Thailand. Made by San Mig but not one of the better ones. It is fruity in taste, with a unique aroma. My sample had 6.9% alcohol,.

The aroma is like corn malt and alcohol. The appearance is golden with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. The is not that good but it’s not offensive.

Its got the potential but ultimately it lacks anything great. over sweet malts malts with rice adjuncts, and no hop presence. makes this barely drinkable.
