LBarouf (114) - Ontario, - NOV 10, 2012
1000ml bottle in Puerto Galera Ok, this is terrible. No flavour at all, just taste like lighter fluid, or horse piss with pure ethanol. Truly terrible. And when it’s 40 degrees outside, a really strong beer is not my bag, specially a bad one without taste at all. If Horse piss and rubbing alcohol sounds good, you may be homeless.

R4N5H (198) - SINGAPORE - MAR 9, 2015
33cl can at 8% ABV. Pours a clear golden colour with a medium head which quickly disappears. Medium carbonation. Sweet malt aroma. Sweet taste - hides the alcohol well. Fruity, some caramel and malt with a light level of bitterness.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours pale golden yellow, nose is green apple, musty, taste is acidic and flat.

migwell (80) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Stallion! Well, I spent a mostly dreadful 4 months cycling in the Philippines a few years ago, and not to categorize myself, I discovered that the favored brew of hard drinking expatriate Westerners in these islands was Red Horse... mine as well thanks to the ABV. If you have to drink swill to get a buzz, this is the Filipino swill to drink. Would NEVER consider drinking this again, however.

Swaroga (1630) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2015
Flavor is delicately bitter alcohol and acid. Cardboard and DMS as well. Horrid beer. I guess all countries need their bum beer.

TedE (353) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Strange wine-like aroma. Golden sparkling beer with sudsy white head. High carbonation. Spritzy mouthfeel followed by weird sweetness. Finish is all alcohol burn. It’s like a bland lager with brandy added.

hawthorne00 (2683) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2015
Can. Orange with a white head that doesn’t last. Very fizzy. Aroma of sugar, some hay, vague herbs. Medium body, not as carbonated as it looks. Really sweet, overtly sugary, some hay, vague citrus and herbs, low bitterness. Some stewed fruit. Sweet all the way through. More nothing I want yipe than off yipe, but ugh.

Grumbo (759) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
On past visits to Philippines this was my favourite. Maybe it was the heat, the country, sharing drinks with the locals, alternating with Tanduay rum, the price.... But all that was some years ago and this rating is based upon a bottle brought to UK from Manila by a friend...Poured a golden colour with an average sized white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and alcohol. Taste is medium bitterness with a light sweetness, medium body and thin texture. Average carbonation. Bitter aftertaste. Slightly metallic. Not great really, the memory was better.

rayaron (529) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JAN 10, 2015
Can sample. Thanks Tom L. Clear light yellow with no head. Light aroma of corn sugar with some fruitiness and hay. Sweet-sour flavor, corn sugar and lemon. Light carbonation, light-bodied.

Can sample. Thanks Tom L. Clear yellow golden color. Smell of hay, corn and rotten eggs. Sweet, alcoholic, grassy bitterness. Light-bodied, watery and not pleasant.

Bottle bought in the Philippines. Stronger but not better. Unless you want to get drunk faster, which is probably the main purpose with this beer.
