COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Philippine’s first and only low-calorie beer. It has the same refreshing, full-flavored taste and alcohol content of the nation’s favorite brew, San Miguel Pale Pilsen.

mgoy (344) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2008 Asian beer companies have traditionally not had the need to brew a light beer. It was embarassing to order this in the Philippines. Even more embarassing was the taste.

Clear 12 oz bottle. Pours clear golden color, white fizzy head. Aroma of a sink-disposal unit in need of a nice disinfecting. Hints of cereal malt, puffed wheat. Flavor resembles the rinse water you drink from the glass you are using at a beer tasting to keep your palate cleansed. Purchased @ Total Wine, Miami.

jason (1702) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Bottle. Poured a pale golden body with thin head. Aroma was surprising with some light fruit and hops. Flavor is crisp, lightly bitter and a surprising full flavor for being a light beer. Light citrus, very carbonated. This is very drinkable.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Bottle. Pretty typical pale lager with some lime flavor incorporated. Not bad, and weighs in at a hefty 5%.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - NOV 13, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 This is one of the most nasty and offensive beers I’ve had. It is light gold with a foamy white head that thins fast at 1st but then lasts and coats the glass. The aroma is a very unpleasant, eggy, musty old house smell with a hint of bread. The taste is the same, with the unpleasant old-house taste coming through strong at 1st, leaving faint bread-stick taste and a lingering, unpleasant aftertaste. It is truly terrible but doesn’t look too bad.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2007
Bottled whilst in Phuket. A dire beer that couldn’t even be saved by the beautiful setting.

bhensonb (12039) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 5, 2007
Aroma of grass and corn. Brassy gold color with an enduring white head. A bit fizzy. Thin to medium bodied. Sort of a corn flavor. The finish is kind of herbally bitter. Probably as good as bud light.

1.4
   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 2/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 6/20
presario (4817) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 12, 2007
Very pale yellow. Bit of bubbly white head. Ice cold (luckily). Cold clean water. Don’t let it warm as skunkiness comes through.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2007
not much in the nose, corn, dry. Pours light yellow. Its a cheap lager what can i say? similar to south american lagers. On a warm afternoon poolside eating filipino food with my hands on a banana leaf, its great.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - APR 1, 2007
12oz can from the Philippines. Aroma was corn. Taste was plain, but not really bad. Alot better than B,M,C if that says anything.
