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. 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.

Radek Kliber (6616) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 12, 2006
Pale gold with thick medium sized white top. Aroma of stale wet cloth , some citric, grainy off nose. Light bodied , soft grainy texture with light grainy character. Thin flavour, some dry alcohol.

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

Bottled. Pale golden in colour. Minor white head. It has a skunky hoppy aroma. There is a malty watery taste, some hops and malt as well.

oh6gdx (22398) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 14, 2006
Bottled. Pale yellow colour, almost no head. Extremely skunked hops in aroma, almost like living in a barnyard. Flavour is a bit skunked and unclean malts. Stay away. Not sure if I should say a thank you to Tbone_ who brought this beer from Singapore and shared it with me...

TBone (13823) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 14, 2006
Golden color, not much head. Skunky hoppy head. Flavor is less exciting: carbonated, malty and more or less flavorless. As "good" as light beers usually.

I drank a lot of these when I was in the Philippines last July 2005. It may be watery, but it goes well with Filipino food (Filipino-style BBQ and grilled fish). Recommended ice-cold and with food.

To be perfectly acurate, this is not a light beer in the sense of low-alcohol, but rather a low-calorie beer. Really, I’m just splitting hairs needlessly because it is a below-average plae lager any way you slice it. Nothing offensive, just a watery bland palate that offers no character. The only redeeming factor is that it is refreshing in a hot climate, but then again, so is a glass of water.

I was considering rating this beer higher simply because it lacks SOME of the "San Miguel Urine Smell" factors of it’s proud product line. Still, it’s a bad beer, full stop. The bottle is clear, I think the inherant skunkiness might have fought the Pee smell and won on some strange bacterial level. Zero head, thin body, vague ingredients, high alcohol (relatively), ... Long neck bottle makes you wish it was a Miller Light. Avoid, unless you are in the Philippines, then drink absolutely ice cold with spicy & salty snacks.
