2.83/5  rDev +6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance - Pours a clear golden color with a centimeter thick head that dissipates instantly. Has creamy lacing.

Smell - Grainy, bready, and malty..

Taste - Strong pale malts, bready malts, and quite bitter.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with high carbonation.

Overall - Definitely not one of the better malt liquors.. but I don't really like them in general anyway.

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.

Can from blatantdream, by way of a co-worker who recently returned from a work trip to Manila. "You like beer, right?" Sure.... Skepticism++!

Light, golden body with surprisingly glamorous white head. Hard to believe there's good retention and even beady lace! Lots of sweet Belgian malts in the nose. Again, surprisingly not terrible.

Doesn't really taste like much, which is better than expected. Reminds me of a bland Belgian blonde ale. I've had many, many worse beers from this region, so Red Horse is a pleasant gem in a sea of awful brews.

Body is weak and boring like most light lagers from the region. But honestly, I'd happily drink this as my beer of choice if I lived in the Phillippines.

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.

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.

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
