San Miguel Brewery, the largest beer producer in the Philippines, with a market share of over 95% and five breweries spread across the country producing eight beer brands. Red Horse Beer, the Philippines’ first extra-strong beer, is a full-flavored beer is marketed as having "the right kick and taste for the action-oriented individual."
Red Horse tastes smooth and crisp with very little hop character. Lots of sweet malt flavour likely stems from the use of corn and rice adjuncts. Not particularly flavorful, but not bad either. The 7% alcohol by volume is surprisingly well hidden in what otherwise tastes similar to an American malt liquor. In summary, you may as well grab one of the big 40oz bottles and pour a little out for your Filipino homies or otherwise just enjoy a Red Horse beer as a welcome change to the monotony of standard San Miguel.
