Red Horse Malt Liquor
Can I just say that in no way is this even remotely good, however, I love it. From the start, I knew this would be something special. It has a very fizzy quality about it, almost like double sparkle after pouring it. Even 15 minutes later, it is just fizzing and bubbling away.
The aroma is quite unusual. It is somewhat flowery, with some fun sour notes, and a certain "ripeness" about it. After taking in a generous mouthful, I was immediately taken with the crisp fizzyness of it. I was afraid if I let it move around for too long i would be missing some tissue, so I prayed, and then swallowed.
The first very brief moment everything in the world was right. Then came along the real meat and potatoes, and everything was buried under a massively overriding taste of alcohol. But in some ways, this alcohol taste is much more manageable than in an overly strong, not-well balanced pale ale. No bitterness at all. Instead that initial sourness returns.
And then you hear the extreme fizzing in the glass as the sweet malt liquor returns to the bottom.
So, in conclusion: Horrible. Yet I enjoyed every single sip. And I wish I had more.
