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.

flying_pig (996) - 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 (301) - 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.

pintbypint (2696) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 26, 2013
330ml clear bottle. Light yellow coloured brew, head is white, some ok retention and ok lacing, looks like a decent glass of beer. Nose is rough and grainy. Taste has weak grains, cardboard, mineral water. A bit of straw and weak grass in the finish. The surprise here is that this beer holds a decent head and leaves a little lacing. What isn’t that surprising, is that this beer is a weak cheap mess in every other category.

Very dirty smelling. Pale yellow with a white head. Light, bland stinky taste. Flavor of a light beer but abv of a full lager. Wth?

abujuga (1) - PHILIPPINES - JUN 7, 2013 does not count
I’m from the Philippines and even I don’t drink this swill unless i’m a guest and it’s offered to me. Aroma is terribly nauseating, appearance is typical fizzy yellow. Taste makes me gag. No wonder it’s such a fad to serve beer near freezing here. People don’t know what good beer tastes like

Bamsen78 (3389) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2013
Can. Pours pale straw with negligible white head. Skunky aroma with subtle touches of hops. Very mild flavour, mostly fo rice, water, grain and some sweetener. Very watery. Nothing to write home about, although somehow I expected something far worse.

MiP (13774) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2013
Can, 5%. Sweetish aroma, not so much malty as strangely farty and sugary. Clear golden colour. Small white head. The flavour is surprisingly sweet for a light beer. Not grainy or sour, so better than expected.

Nearly clear, water-like, easy to drink, no skunk, pretty bottle, shitty beer.
