Malt liquor? Been a while since I've had one of those.
Nice golden color? Check. Thin head? Check. Ample carbonation? You bet.
Weird aromas. Vaguely beer-like but I can't be too sure. Sweet. Grainy.
Yep, it's a malt liquor. Cloying, headache inducing sweetness with nary a touch of anything else. No body whatsover.
This brings on the nazztayyy with a watery mouthfeel and very little that resembles beer.
Bleh. Gimme a Colt or OE800.

Poured from about an inch above the glass give this beer a medium or slightly more white head that quickly dies to about half an inch that slowly settles into a very light bubbly lacing above a clear golden colored light bodied beer.
Aroma of sour grains, lighter lemon citrus, and even lighter hints of yeast.
Watery light sour grain malt taste with even lighter lemon citrus coming through.
A dry aftertaste with some lemony citrus hanging around.
This beer is kind like a sub-par American light beer like Bud Light, boo these guys for pretty a less than beer beer in a cool looking bottle and using up a decent name that an Irish Red would have been proud to carry.

Whoo, Malt Liquor from the Philippines. Let the good times roll...
Crystal clear straw color, thin layer of white foam on the surface. Minimal spotty lacing.
Mealy corn silage, wet grains and wet dishrag notes in the aroma. When cold it's fairly muted, its suggested to keep as ice cold as possible.
Sharp astringent alcohol, apple, dull flavors, light watery carbonation, though it has a fuller feel to the body for an AML. Dull grains, dry finish with some perceptible alcohol in the taste. Plain and rough around the edges... not the most terrible malt liquor out there, but still not worth revisiting.

Pours a two finger white head that vanishes quickly leaving no lace. Crystal clear light amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Sweet grain nose and flavor is malty sweet with a light hop finish. Boring, barely a lawnmower beer. 330ml bottle, from Gift Specialists Oceanside, California.

Please don't bother with this one if you have an alternative, it's a rather poor strong lager. It is the best beer in the Philippines, but that's not saying much at all. There it comes in 650ml bottles and is far superior to the more dominant San Miguel Pale Pilsener from the same brewery. SMPP is just an insipid pale lager with an unpleasant aftertaste.
In the Philippines, as far as bang for the buck and flavor, this is the one. As in many countries, the one brewery controls most, if not all, of the market. And as in most of southern Asia, all the available brews are sub-par.
