2.28/5 rDev -8.8%
A - initially quite pleasing, straw body and somewhat coarse but lively two finger head. Fades to film, tho.
S - odd and sulphur and bread notes.
T - smooth, sickly, creamy, oily. Malt, yes, but not as we know it.
M - very smooth, despite moderate carbonation.
O - my first Malt Liqour, and maybe I will not be chasing one again... Just not very drinkable all in all.

Pours a thin head on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma is soapy, alcohol and metallic. Not great.
The taste is not too bad, fairly sweet overall but retrained for a malt liquor. Not a hint of bitter.
The texture is sticky with moderate carbonation.
It is what it is.

With no idea where this came from and no expectations, I've still got a little trepidation regarding this one. Nevertheless...
As expected, it's a fizzy pale yellow beer with an equally fizzy little white head that remains as a thin foam that leaves a likewise thin ring of lace at the top and very thin little spots of lacing in moderation on the glass.
Sweet & sour cereal grains and fusel alcohols along with a vague note of leaf makes the aroma pretty much what I could expect, though not as terrible as I was afraid it might be.
Corny sweet in the flavor, the cereal grains are just that but with a touch of malts, too. A lightly metallic note comes in the middle, maybe off the leaf, and it finishes sweet. It's close to being cloying, and might verge into that territory, but not as badly as some.
Thin and watery as well as fizzy in the feel, this light-bodied beer is sweet in the feel but goes extremely dry into the finish. Still, it's surprisingly clean and, when the fizziness fades, somewhat crisp before it falls off.

I also hope this is the correct beer. Mine was in a 1 liter bottle and came from the Philippines. It was labeled as Extra Strong Beer and was 8% so I'm assuming it is right. Anyway, I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was a nice straw colored brew with a nice big white head. However that did not last very long. Lacing was decent. The beer smelled kinda yeasty, but good. The taste was good. Very fresh very un-shocking, pretty normal. Seemed to be highly carbonated and did not taste strong like the 8% would have made me think it would be. No burn, great taste. I would buy again.

The official beer of Filipino galivanting and camaraderie, the 8% ABV makes Red Horse an excellent choice for those seeking a cheap buzz. The 1 in 6 crazy horse bottle is stuff of legend. Actually not terrible, tastes like a bunch of cereal grains processed industrially. Metallic aftertaste and bone dry going down. Quite filling, but a good time.

Pours a clean and clear golden straw color, quite bubbly but no retention. When cold, scent was muted cereal grains with a splash of floral hops, but as it warms a slight but unpleasent chemical, rubbery smell comes through with industrial alcohol. Taste starts clean when cold, sweet cereal, light flowers and faint fruit water, but chemicals and alcohol come through increasingly as it warms. Bad lingering aftertaste, bubbly and very light. Less body and flavor than most malt liqours, but some unpleasant notes creap in.
