The Philippineís first and only low-calorie beer. It has the same refreshing, full-flavored taste and alcohol content of the nationís favorite brew, San Miguel Pale Pilsen.

Read the label, look at the beer. Youíre not in for a surprise in this one. If thereís one good thing I can say about this beer, itís that the taste is not nearly as bad as the nauseating aroma.

Grumbo (1340) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
From historic notes, bottle during stay in Davao, Philippines. Pours a pale amber colour with a very small white head. Aroma is sweet, with some hop evident. Quite heavy on sweetness, light body, average carbonation.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołůw, POLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is sweetness plus some malt. No skunk detected, unsurprisingly, as there seem to be homeopathic amounts of hops in this beer. The flavour? Well, a bit of malt, a bit of tartness, no bitterness. Just plain water. Well, not so plain , since there is an unpleasant note in the aftertaste, midway between stale rice and cardboard. If not for the high carbonation, this one would be absolutely undrinkable.

jmgreenuk (7635) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle at the German Beerhouse, Bangkok. Poured a clear straw colour with a bubbly white head. The aroma is zesty citrus. The flavour is super light bitter with a light watery refreshing citrus palate. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Cooled down and with a chunk of lime itís ok on a hot day. Iíve tasted worse.

wildbeercat (356) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2014
355ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold. Aroma: This beer smells mildly sweet, with just a little hint of corn. No discernible hop, but not offensive at all. Appearance: This beer has a crystal-clear, bright yellow body. This beer has a low amount of visible carbonation, and a thin, white cap. This beer leaves thin lacing. Taste: This beer is lightly flavored. This beer has a light malt-forward flavor. The malt flavor has little to no trace of adjuncts. There is no discernible hop flavor, and just a shadow of bitterness. This beerís flavor is inoffensive, non-aggressive, and easy to drink. Palate: This beer is light bodied, but not watery. This beer is highly carbonated. This beerís finish is short, and ends on very fine bitterness. This beerís finish is a little sticky. Overall: This beer is a fine light beer; there is nothing about it that actively offends or disgusts. This beer is a beer I would choose if offered alongside other light beers.

maekchu (3458) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 24, 2014
Bottle from local Yamaya store. Light sewer nose, abattoir, and washed up flotsam under the pier. Bright medium straw color. Mild spritzy, crappy initial / malt is so thin / goes a bit sourish and even funky / then a lousy tingling sweetness. Thin, watery. Rather unpleasant overall.

Oh ya, nuthiní better than an obscure light beer to re-ignite oneís passion for craft beer!! I think this is drunk by all the Philipinos in Bermuda who donít want to actually get drunk on their downtime (or canít) and just sort-of-want-to-be-seen drinking beer. Has a golden body with minimal carbonation and a modest white head that does not disappear too quickly. Aroma is of rotten cabbage. Flavour is rotting cabbage, but thankfully not too offensive as the palate is just so watery. Weak and offensive, and sadly as I expected.

Good for a Light beer. Clear golden with smal head, grain and malt aromas like dough and corn. Light body, low hop bitterness, watery end.

ineedbeer (1807) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 7, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
