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 drank from the can. Same doughy aroma with some grain thrown in. A hint of puke lingers. Watery bland flavor with grain and bread. This brew is lighttttt

Sampled every which way. Bottle, Can, Keg. They all suck pretty much equally though, I think the clear bottle is a bit noticeably worse. It definitely doesn’t stand up to it’s claim of "the same refreshing full flavored taste Pale Pilsen". Not as enjoyable as the pale. This is like the bud light, compared to budweiser. Except that budlight is a little better than this.

@ Lanta Casuarina Beach Resort, Koh Lanta, Thailand. Burk från 7-eleven, Koh Lanta. Det här var riktigt dålig! Som att dricka småbeskt kolsyrat vatten med en metallisk touch!!

tadahster (112) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Biting, fermented, rotten fruit, forest berries, strawberry aroma. Zero taste. Resembles mineral water. Reminds a little of metal pipes.

briansinger33 (1) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2013 does not count
Skunky gold but not quite, cloudy for a pilsner, nice to have 5% abv in a "light" beer but I’d rather drink something of quality. On a hot humid Manila day it suffices for refreshment.

330ml bottle @ Ting Tong Bar, Patong, Phuket, Thailand. Ice cold beer. Almost like water, but I can drink this.

yespr (31480) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2013
33 cL bottle in a Philippine shop on Spui in Amsterdam. Pours clear and pale yellow, small white head. Aroma grainy and light grassy. Watery, light metallic and toasted malty. Subdued bitterness into the finish.

flying_pig (965) - SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2013
330ml bottle on Koh Phi Phi, Thailand (48 Baht):
Light with faint barely, some lager adjuncts, grassy hops and some citrus notes. There is a touch of skunk as well and the taste is quite bland.
Light coloured straw with a clear body and a small, bubbly white head.
Citrus & cut grass with some skunk and basic adjuncts to start. There is a weak, almost water like taste that follows this and a tiny bit of bitterness.
Light & watery with almost no bitterness. Slightly tangy with strong carbonation that borders on gassy.

Bland & watery with a weak taste and smell, one that certainly lives up to its ’light’ billing. The beer seems over carbonated and doesn’t have much of note to say for itself.

CPH2200 (291) - DENMARK - JUL 28, 2013
Can 33cl, 5.0% abv. Very watery pale lager. No bitternes, almost like carbonated water. Verdict: avoid. Any alternative would be better.
