2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a can into a glass while in Thailand.
Aroma has a light, sweet graininess with faint grassy hop character. Light sulfur note and no diacetyl.
Pours a pale yellow with a thin white head that quickly recedes to the Shea where it lingers. Light lacing and no legs.
Flavor has a light, sweet graininess with faint grassy and floral hops. Light sulfur note and low bitterness. A slight twang in the finish, which I think is from the hops.
Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall an alright light beer. In some ways it is better than regular San Miguel as the flavor isn't so watery, but there is more sulfur in the light version and the hops are fainter.

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

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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!!

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Biting, fermented, rotten fruit, forest berries, strawberry aroma. Zero taste. Resembles mineral water. Reminds a little of metal pipes.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
