“The Red Horse is a decent brew”, said Ryan Potts, a Junior Brewer from England, who I met the other day in a cramped minivan and am now bunking with in El Nido, Palawan. He happened to have worked at the last micro-brewery in Sunderland, so the boy knows what he’s talking about.
This is the strongest of all the fizz in The Philippines and a combination of two 33 fluid ounces and a long day will certainly put you to bed easy.
This one’s not for the faint of heart and should really not be drank with much food for the fear of an almost guaranteed gut-busting. Enjoy one when you deserve a quick buzz on a small amount of liquid and haven’t had too much to eat in the past couple of hours.
Potts had strong feelings about this one. He exclaimed, “If you’re low on Philippine Pesos (PHP) and have a pining for a good flavored ale, this is by far your best option. A social drink is always the key to end a perfect day in paradise, but a 6.9% ABV social drink for under 60PHP? Well now we’re in heaven.”
Drink with caution near the Equator. Giddy up!
