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.

Skunky gold but not quite, cloudy for a pilsner, nice to have 5% abv in a "light" beer but Iíd 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.

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 (1387) - 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 ílightí billing. The beer seems over carbonated and doesnít have much of note to say for itself.

Can 33cl, 5.0% abv. Very watery pale lager. No bitternes, almost like carbonated water. Verdict: avoid. Any alternative would be better.

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 isnít 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?

Iím from the Philippines and even I donít drink this swill unless iím a guest and itís offered to me. Aroma is terribly nauseating, appearance is typical fizzy yellow. Taste makes me gag. No wonder itís such a fad to serve beer near freezing here. People donít know what good beer tastes like
