Philippines! 12oz bottle, no date. Pours a clear light golden with a 1/2 finger quickly fading fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet corn grain and paper up front, very light biscuit dough--no sweetness to those biscuits. Flavor has added alcohol and dirty corny sweetness, minimal bitterness. No biscuit dough. Moderate carbonation with a light to medium body. Actually, I have to rate this for a malt liquor, and not compared to all other styles. If I had the rating would be 3-3-4-3-9--2.2. . . Otherwiswe itís not a horrible malt liquor.

ABUSEDGOAT (2390) - California, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Dull yellow, large diminishing head with no lacing. Aroma is grain with gas. Flavor is alcoholic with grain, gasoline and more stuff that shouldnít be in beer. Very light body, sweet finish. Pretty much terrible, but hey itís another country.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle: Okay, so I made the mistake of opening this after several other lagers... looks bout the same, vibrant yellow, slight orange tinge, very clear, moderate white fizzy head, dies quickly, sparce lacing.   Grassy nose, pale malts, very slight alcohol.   7% ABV ya know.   Well, I will say this, its pretty clean.   Very light, pale malts, slightly grassy, moderate sweetness.   Actually, this one is quite a bit better than the prior two beers.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, nearing the thin side tho.   Clean finish, warming, sweet pale malts linger.   Better than expected!

[Can from Therese brought all the way from Manila.] Asian mainstrean fluid, which has only one purpose with its production. To cool dawn all the sweaty backpackers. And itís well done in the summerheat all year around. But back home itís nothing else than a beer, where its most remarkable feature is its huge head, and the usually taste of straws, metal and rice. But thanks a lot to Therese!

asedzie (603) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 27, 2007
UPDATED: APR 29, 2007 Pours bronze with a small white head. A little hops in the aroma, but also cheap adjunct odor. Flavor is cloying, vinious with a trace of bitterness. Green apple flavors and alcohol are prominent. This beer is San Mig on PCP. I do admit that it is gut-rotting swill, but I really must say that I like it.

bhensonb (11066) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 8, 2007
Aroma of malt and corn or grass. Maybe a bit of herb or floral. Light brassy color with virtually no head. Starts malty, a bit thinnish, the alcohol is noticeable. Not finding much hop, but the finish has some sort of herby vegy finish thatís a bit bitter.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2007
Bottled, alc. 6.9%, brewed by San Miguel Thailand (bottled 01/2006)
Golden color, good white head. Cracker malty and alcoholic nose. Very watery - very weak palate. Mostly just alcohol and grainy malts. Only for drunks.

anders37 (16691) - MalmŲ, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a fast disappearing white head. Very sweet malty aroma with some floral and alcohol hints. Sweet malty almond nutty flavor. Sweet malty finish and you can feel the warming from the alcohol.

hammerbeck (101) - Kentucky, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Easy to drink but not very tasty. It has the oily, bland taste common to many American malt liquors. If I were in the Phillipines and wanted to get drunk, this would be the drink, but I couldnít find another use for it.

bluevegie (3053) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2006
I was expecting a foul tasting beer instead what I got was one with hardly any taste at all. Bright gold body, nose is a little bit rubbery and corn, soft malt taste, donít even notice the 7%. Finished this easily enough.
