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.

Can shared with a bunch of folks at DougShoemaker’s Decemberfest 2006 - courtesy of Radek. Piss yellow colour. Aroma of rotten veg with a slight sour, cheesy, farty note. Flavour of pretty much nothing at all.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2006
Can @ Decemberfest 2006; thanks to Radek Kliber: Not again. Pale yellow colour, no head at all. Aroma of cheese formed from the teats of angry cows and the socks of the farmer who groped it. Thankfully none of this comes through in the flavour, which is entirely water. H2O. Boo.

Straw light gold, thin white head. Nose is kinda corney, vaguely vegetal. Greg thinks that this beer displays a "bit of fartiness" Flavor is very slight malt and tonic water.

I mean, it was bad, but not offensive. Pale pee in color, thin fizzy head. Thin, boring and very macro in flavor. This is probably what philippinos tailgate with.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2006
Very pale straw, medium carbonation, next to zero head retention. Aroma, such that it is is dominated by adjuncts- corn. Watery palate and minimual corn flavour complete the canvas. Presumably the pale pils fully fermented out if so it should have be left alone. Not revolting but not anything much else either. Pointless.

milewide (1461) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2006
No smell, no flavor, no body. I have this on tap 24/7/365---at my kitchen sink via the local water company. Part of a World Market variety pack.

highlandlad (1412) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2006
Pointless low-calorie version of San Miguel. If calories become an issue for me, I’d rather drink water than this crap. This was crystal-clear watery gold with a thin scum of short-lived suds. The piercing aroma is uric and reeks of adjuncts. Stale and thoroughly unappetising. The mouthfeel is hard and spritzy. Aggressively carbonated waif-like body. You can taste the carbonation, plus some grass and sour watery lemons. There is no finish. This is actually worse than the dreadful Becks Alcohol-free beer I had on the same day. (330ml bottle from a Singapore supermarket)

Tmoney99 (10411) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2006
Bottle. Poured pale color with a large frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Light grassy hop aroma. Light body with a smooth texture. Medium sweet flavor with a light sweet dry finish of short duration. Better than my expectations.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2006
Bottle, with Clarkvv and Sully. Unbelievably void of flavour, extremely watery palate, with a fizzy finish. A little bit corny, this was pretty bad. Worse than the Super-Dry and the Pale Pils.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2006
A beer so blah than San Miguel couldn’t find it in themselves to honor it with a full name. Very pale yellow and highly carbonated, it’s got a faint, faint nose of corn. The flavor is a watery sweet corn syrup. At least the finish is abrupt with no serious after effects.
