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.

Picked up by my buddy Ken in the Phillipines. Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A – Poured out a pale golden yellow with almost no head to speak of at all. Very bubbly.
S – Corn, grain, sweet and not much else.
T – Very sweet taste immediately grabbed me. Malty with a touch of citrus.
M – Very easy drinker. Medium carbonation that leaves a bit of that sweetness on your palate as it goes down.
O – Another on of these hot summer days brews in a foreign country type. Its perfectly fine for a beach, boat or humid day. It will go down quick and easy and its at least got some taste.

330ml bottle, 7% ABV. A brew which seems to come and go from Alberta store shelves, and is readily confused with the malt liquor cans. Glad I could snatch a single in Stampede City.
This beer pours a clear medium golden yellow colour, with one finger of loosely foamy, and quite audibly fizzy dirty white head, which leaves the meekest burps of EKG lace around the glass as it very readily settles.
It smells of sweet corn grist and overcooked white rice, a mild sweet alcohol ester 'character', and a weird musty, dusty dryness. The taste is a mite bit drier - thin apple cider, a fickle weak graininess, an indeterminate plastic sourness, and some further musty, dusty, er, hops, I guess.
The carbonation is mopey and average, kind of resigned to its fate (I can sympathize), the body a thin, sugar-buoyed medium weight (just barely, sports fans), and smooth, with a gagging sidebar. It finishes sweet, grainy, slightly boozy, and reserved in its nicely understated skankiness.
A malt liquor, sure - it's got all the trademarks, yet that overused concept of 'drinkability' strangely applies here, dunno why. Oh, right, I've suitably lowered my expectations, a la re-runs of SNL.

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.
