A strong lager from the Far East. The color is nice amber, foam is a little thin and evanescent. The flavor is hoppy, slightly bitter and suggests the use of caramel in a pleasant way. This is the strongest beer brewed in the Philippines, but the taste does not differ significantly from many Danish lagers.

Moravius (1041) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2015
Flasche (33 cl) von Asia Mekong am Hackeschen Markt, Berlin. Aufgeklebt ist ein Etikett des Importeurs, das den Alkoholgehalt mit 5 % angibt, auf der Flasche steht jedoch 6,9 %. - Tiefes Goldgelb, klar; kaum Schaum. - In der Nase mild karamelliges Malz, eine schwache süßsäuerliche Note, ein Hauch wie von Putzlumpen, Alkohol. - Antrunk schlank und mild karamelmalzig mit leichter, dennoch unpassender fruchtig-säuerlicher Note, die an billigen Orangensaft, aber auch an Spülwasser erinnert. Herbe ist kaum vorhanden. Durchschnittlich rezent, eher dünn im Körper. Im Abgang dasselbe in grün, dazu schwach faulig-fuselige Fehlaromen. - Süßlich-wäßrige Plörre mit entschieden zuviel Alkohol. Kein Genuß.

Clear golden color with close to no foam. The smell is boozy. The taste is flat, boring and not very good.

Bottle from Mišo. Thanks! Pours very light yellow with barely any head. Aroma is malt, wort. Taste is very faint with malt, wort, corn. Just a hint of alcohol. Surprisingly watery given the alcohol content. Metalic aftertaste. I’ve had worse.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC. This is the classic beer of the Philippines that sailors and Marines lived off of in the old days while in Olongapo. Unfortunately it doesn’t compare to other beers but in the tropical setting of the PI it is awesome. But, it is rather average but it did take me down memory lane for a bit.
