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.

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.

Bottle consumed on 8/12/06.
Weak, goldenrod diluted in water, with a fizzy head that quickly runs to the edge. Extremely filtered clarity, no lacing, bubbles settle out of the liquid rather quickly.
Cheap pencil/crayon nose, compound flaws exhibited, with a clear lack of proper or even bare minimum lagering times. Husky, slightly sharp, rice-like finish. Extremely stale and pasteurized. No hops, no alcohol.
The flavor has a slight rancidity to it, and almost a dry, bland, papery flavor as well, with some green apple, metallic notes and spoiled cider notes on the finish. Of course, all of this is diluted down to being minimally noticeable, but it’s certainly still there. The usual case where the "lite" version of the regular beer displays fewer problems, generally due to less ingredients being used and a much higher water/everything-else-ratio, does not seem to be the case here, as this is not your typical neutral, carbonic, lightly sweet seltzer water sort of light beer. Or if this is still the case, then San Mig regular must be god-awful. Fizzy mouthfeel, watery, loose, stale, pasteurized, filtered, no hop notes, no alcohol.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2006
This one comes off as much the same as some of the rougher american macro’s.Light golden color,small white head that had a short hang time then faded to leave nothing behind.The aroma was mild with a truck stop sort of thing going on in it.Corny with some cerealish hints that kind of reminds me of lacrosse beer,Hmmm.The flavor is much the same,Light all around with some hints of this and that and little more to really grab your palate.Over all i’d have to say the brew is thin and uneventful,but worth a go around just for the hell of it.

Total Wine, Tampa, Fl. - 12 0z bottle. Pale golden pour, soapy white head - sticks around. Aroma of hair tonic - not much else. Metallic flavor, hints of skunkiness. Some wet newspaper hints in there as well. Not very refreshing, reminds me of a cheap American low-budget lager along the lines of Schlitz.

Smells like wet clothes left too long in the machine after washing, clear straw, small white head. Mildly corn flavoured, watery, yikes. Thanks Radek.

The aroma is lightly skunked corn malt. The appearance is pale gold with a small head. The flavor is corn and a light cheap bitterness. The palate is watery. This is another example of a tasteless odorless lager.

Can. Pours a pale golden-yellow body with a small white ring of head. Smells like a dirty locker room and wet towels. Husky grain flavours and alcohol. Boring.

Pours a nice mellow golden yellow color. Aromas of mild malts, hops. Kinda skunky. Some hop bitterness and dry finish.
