Bottle poured to pint glass very cold beer Appearance: Light orange, minimal head, a lot of lacing Aroma: scent smell of malt, nothing else Taste: not really great Mouth feel: very carbonated Overall: good beer for the hot weather in the Philippines, and not to get drunk since it is soda the most inexpensive way

From the can, in a meeting with the company management in Manila! This beer is clearly neither retired nor was it brewed in California, but what the system says goes! Golden colour. Actually reasonably smooth for such a strong beer, some malty sweetness but not aggressively boozy. More bitterness might have been nice.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
0,5 l bottle, brewed and bottled by Asia Brewery Inc., thanks to Fredrik! No head, but beautiful golden colour, with a faint aroma of malt and hops, but mainly of cheap booze. 30 years ago I visited the Philippines and was shocked to see that a bottle of Coke was more expensive than bottle of (sugar, not grain based) domestically produced whisky. Obviously this beer is made for the same purpose: to get people intoxicated as cheaply as possible. "Premium roasted malt, triple hops brewed, smooth taste, full flavour": never trust the the smooth talking suits and spin doctors.
