brown 12 oz purchased from Wegman's in a mix-a-six enjoyed chilled from a goblet
The look is golden with a pale white head which dissipates rapidly and leaves a ring of fine beads with visible carbonation and good clarity. The smell is sweet, not really sugary sweet more corn-like perhaps a little dimethyl sulfide type cooked corn, but gentle and a malt presence is there in the aroma. The feel is pretty high in carbonation with semi-dry feel and mild alcohol in the finish with a warming on the way down.

The taste has a light malt flavor with the sweetness of malt but smooth and gentle with a more dry presence as the alcohol is there making the beer seem thinner as a result which is not bad it is not hot, just strong with mild spice probably from the elevated carbonation giving that carbonic element. Overall I like this for what it is - Malt liquor...it is simple and does the trick, not great flavor but better than many I have tried and I would drink this again

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.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours an effervescent gold with 3 fingers of fast falling eggshell colored head. Slightly below average head retention & lacing

S: Pears, white grapes, some perfumy notes, some honey suckle notes

T: Sweet apples, dryness & white grapes up front. More of the same as this warms, big time apple blossom balanced by just a little by mineral & citrussy hops. Finishes cidery & dry

MF: Medium bodied, lively carbonation, skews sweet

Drinks easy for the ABV, doesn't really taste like a malt liquor to me, too fruity & smooth. Not bad, I'm sure if I drank enough, a fierce hangover could be had... Better than its rating, but having had this in past, I would say this beer probably goes down hill quickly if exposed to UV light or to much heat. If given limited choices, this might work, other wise caveat emptor on this

Decanted from an 11.2 oz (330 ml) bottle into a Weissbier vase; no production information.
A: Pours a light amber color with a half inch, white head that resolves to a rim with no lacing.
S: Sweet floral bouquet with a toasty aroma.
T: Sweet malts up front with only very mild bitterness. Peach and tutti-fruity notes.
M: Surprisingly light bodied (given the alcohol content) with low to medium carbonation.
O: I purchase out of curiosity. It is a drinkable, if not terribly memorable, brew. That said, the ratings on the site just seems a tad low and some of the reviews, a bit hyperbolic.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC. This is the classic beer of the Philippines that sailors and Marines lived off of in the old days while in Olongapo. Unfortunately it doesn't compare to other beers but in the tropical setting of the PI it is awesome. But, it is rather average but it did take me down memory lane for a bit.

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.
