UPDATED: MAY 9, 2016 Thai brewed version @ 6%. I think I’m feeling a little more charitable with this tasting. Certainly has some palate weight when compared to other local offerings however it’s really just a very simple sweet note that no doubt the 6% helps fill out. Some fizz mid-palate but it really does ’fizz out’ in a big way on the finish. Does have a ’Red Bull’ lookalike label, perhaps this is marketing intent?

Pours a clear yellow colour with a white head which soon fizzes away. Aroma is corn syrup and malts. Taste is biscuit sweet, malts, sugar and sweetcorn.

Drank at El Tiki bar in Cebu. Not much taste, lightly malty with a slight lemony fizzy/sharp finish. High booze (8%).

This stuff is lethal! There I was carefully working my way through the San Mig range watching the rugby when suddenly this bad boy turns up, 7% and in a bigger bottle! Oh well. Actually not too bad given its strength, manages to taste primarily of not a lot which I thought was a good result! Good name and packaging...

The smooth flavor is what I like about this beer if I have two types or more in the fridge this is the starter and I work my way down from it. ps Extra Strong is just what it is one can get swiftly hammered on this so take it easy. I have had many friends make this their favorite there by making it more expencive and difficult to find

Dit is een redelijk waterige pilsener, in smaak en kleur. Weinig hop en mout. Rijst is te ontdekken in ’t smaakpalet. Het bier heet ’Extra Strong’ te zijn, maar heeft 6,9% alcoholvolume.

Clear straw yellow pour with aroma of grain and booze. Not much flavor with some grain and touch of alcohol. Meh...

TorbenJensen (1457) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2015
A strong lager from the Far East. The color is nice amber, foam is a little thin and evanescent. The flavor is hoppy, slightly bitter and suggests the use of caramel in a pleasant way. This is the strongest beer brewed in the Philippines, but the taste does not differ significantly from many Danish lagers.

Moravius (1124) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2015
Flasche (33 cl) von Asia Mekong am Hackeschen Markt, Berlin. Aufgeklebt ist ein Etikett des Importeurs, das den Alkoholgehalt mit 5 % angibt, auf der Flasche steht jedoch 6,9 %. - Tiefes Goldgelb, klar; kaum Schaum. - In der Nase mild karamelliges Malz, eine schwache süßsäuerliche Note, ein Hauch wie von Putzlumpen, Alkohol. - Antrunk schlank und mild karamelmalzig mit leichter, dennoch unpassender fruchtig-säuerlicher Note, die an billigen Orangensaft, aber auch an Spülwasser erinnert. Herbe ist kaum vorhanden. Durchschnittlich rezent, eher dünn im Körper. Im Abgang dasselbe in grün, dazu schwach faulig-fuselige Fehlaromen. - Süßlich-wäßrige Plörre mit entschieden zuviel Alkohol. Kein Genuß.

Clear golden color with close to no foam. The smell is boozy. The taste is flat, boring and not very good.
