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.

marcus (6015) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 21, 2013
Pours clear golden with a rich off-white head and a standard lager aroma. There is a very light pilsner malt flavor and little else.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pours clear, bubbly, gold with a tall, chunky white head. Aroma is grain, malt. Taste is malty, grainy, cardboard, water. Very carbonated. Drinkable for what it is...just don’t expect much.....fairly typical of style and origin.

Without a doubt my favorite beer. And the #1 reason is whenever I’m drinking one it means I’m HOME in the Philippines. Of course this is a biased review, but it’s my Home Beer!!!

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2013
From an off-license in South Kuta, Bali.
Produces up quite effervescent with a lapsing, bubbly white head. Medium gold and sparkling otherwise. Dry, grainy, haystack aroma with a lingering hint of boiled eggs. Biting carbonation is prelude to a flat, soapy back-end and oddly gassy finish once it hits the stomach. Grainy, light sodden cardboard and grain husks before just a blister of old, leafy hops that offer a light bitterness. Not much else here. Just another SE Asian lager. (33cL, 4.9% ABV, BB 09/10/13, A-Mart, Kuta, Bali, Indonesia)

Philippine’s first and only low-calorie beer. It has the same refreshing, full-flavored taste add a lime good to go

From the 330 ml. bottle. It has a golden yellow pour with a decent fizzy white head so on appearance for the style it is just right. But after that it is your basic standard pale light lager with a thin grainy aroma and a slight clean hop note and thin to watery body. The taste is a bit more malt forward than I would have expected with a decent sweetness and clean finish.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2012
Can. A light yellow beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of brewing cereal, malt, and hay. The flavor is sweet with notes of brewing cereal, metal, and hay, leading to a dry finish.

12 oz. Bottle of crap. The Phillipines first and only light beer. My first and only Phillipine crap beer. Smells like toe jam and grain. Light yellow pour with little to no head. The highlight of the beer was its palate, a light and crisp feel. The taste was so thin it was hard to decipher, but I picked up a little grain and oddly enough, some sweet melon flavor.

Pours pale yellow, nose is a little skunky, some hints of grains. Kind of has a foul rotten flavor... Not sure if this beer is bad, or if the beer is really this bad... DUMP!
