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.

12 oz single from Trader Joe’s: Pale gold color wirh a small, fading white head. Flavor starts lightly sweet with a little grainess and a soft dry bitterness in the finish. Light body is crisp with lively carbonation.

Drink it with a lime. Drink all imported beers with spanish names in clear bottles with limes. Makes me smile. A light beer with 5% alcohol. I think it is redonkulously good. Perhaps redoubledonkulously good. If you ranked all light beers on 6-pack vibes, this can’t possibly be beat. Twelve will make you sputter Tagalong slurs at your grandma.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Pours a pale straw yellow with a small, short lived, fizzy white head. Plenty of bubbles. Aroma of hay, adjuncts, a touch of skunk (clear bottle) and a bit of DMS. Taste is about the same. Bubbly and rough going down.

Golden color, virtually no flavor. They were giving them away by the hundreds at a trade show party so it was my favorite beer. Free beer.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - FEB 16, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2008 Great? No. It’s a light lager in a clear bottle. But honestly, it’s quite refreshing on a warm Philippine evening. Reminded me a bit of Corona, though better. Wouldn’t touch this stuff outside the country given the clear bottle an all.

mgoy (344) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2008 Asian beer companies have traditionally not had the need to brew a light beer. It was embarassing to order this in the Philippines. Even more embarassing was the taste.

unclemattie (4248) - Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Clear 12 oz bottle. Pours clear golden color, white fizzy head. Aroma of a sink-disposal unit in need of a nice disinfecting. Hints of cereal malt, puffed wheat. Flavor resembles the rinse water you drink from the glass you are using at a beer tasting to keep your palate cleansed. Purchased @ Total Wine, Miami.

jason (1681) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Bottle. Poured a pale golden body with thin head. Aroma was surprising with some light fruit and hops. Flavor is crisp, lightly bitter and a surprising full flavor for being a light beer. Light citrus, very carbonated. This is very drinkable.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Bottle. Pretty typical pale lager with some lime flavor incorporated. Not bad, and weighs in at a hefty 5%.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - NOV 13, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 This is one of the most nasty and offensive beers I’ve had. It is light gold with a foamy white head that thins fast at 1st but then lasts and coats the glass. The aroma is a very unpleasant, eggy, musty old house smell with a hint of bread. The taste is the same, with the unpleasant old-house taste coming through strong at 1st, leaving faint bread-stick taste and a lingering, unpleasant aftertaste. It is truly terrible but doesn’t look too bad.
