Happy Horsing @ Route

Jerry used to only drink light beer. His tastebuds are fragile. ;) Recently, though, he has taken a liking for San Mig Pale and Red Horse. So last night at Route, he ordered several Red Horse(s). To our delight, he got a Happy Horse!

Filipinos who like to drink (is there someone who doesn't? hehe) have this legend about the Happy Horse. You see, the Red Horse bottle normally looks like this:
Take note of how the horse looks. A Happy Horse (and a happy Jerry) looks like this:
See the difference? The horse is actually sporting a grin in the second picture! (Please click on the photos to actually see the difference.)

(Urban) legend has it that the Happy Horse has more kick to it; that it is much more potent than the "normal" horse. More so, it is said that in each case of Red Horse beer, there is only one Happy Horse - so it is hard to get one. How true is the legend?

I saw a good explanation over at Project.D. And based on personal experience, let's just say that there is no difference in taste AND you can actually just request for a Happy Horse anytime you want one. Well, at least you can do that in Route.
