3.15/5  rDev +15%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear bright yellow color with just a thin cap of bright white head that no retention or lacing. The aroma was a little sweet and a touch grainy, but mostly neutral. The taste was the same sweet and bland, and it did have a sticky finish.

The body was surprisingly relatively clean, except for that sticky finish, but wasn't as gooey and sticky as a lot of malt liquors. Drinkability was also surprisingly good, the went smooth and easy. The sweetness of this beer will wear on some folks, but I didn't find it to be so bad.

It was listed as Malt Liquor on the bottle, but I found it to be more like a strong lager, as it's listed here. At a $1.75, this beer is worth a shot if you see it and I might try it again as a walk-around beer as the weather warms up. (812 characters)

3.56/5  rDev +29.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear golden color with two fingers of white head.

Smells of grainy malts with hints of lemon rind hop notes.

Follows the nose with grainy malt and hints of lemon with a subdued bitterness.

Mouthfeel is smooth with low to medium prickly carbonation and light bodied.

This is honestly a decent no-brainer beer and one I wouldn't mind trying again. (358 characters)

sampling all the local brews I can get hold of while on hols in Thailand

the nose is quite rich (at least in Thai standards), good balance of malts and some orchidea fragrance

tastewise it's far richer than the usual Thai style brew, however the taste is tainted by a rather unpleasant sourness

This is a brew from San Miguel (Thailand) Ltd., Pathumthani, Thailand - I am not sure whether it's also brewed in Philippines or not - it is definitely different from Red Horse Liquor (487 characters)
