This one isn’t very good, but it’s very lager-y. It’s on the level of "I don’t want to drink this again" and isn’t something I’d recommend.

33cl bottle in Siem Reap. Clear pale golden with a small white head. Light malty aroma with a hint of caramel and a faint hint of hops. Sweet with very little bitterness. Far from what we know as pils, but no unpleasant aromas or flavours. Easy to drink and quite nice in the heat. (2012-05-03)

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear pale gold with minimal head. Aroma of light hops and a little sour apple. Taste is very lightly bitter and very lightly sweet. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, I’ve had worse. But another country gets checked off the list.

Pours a light golden color. Smell is malts, slightly sweet. Taste is crisp, mild, some malts and grains. Overall an easy drinking warm weather beer.

This beer certainly has a monopoly over the Philippines beer world. Not bad not bad, just another SEA macrobrew, the rice is definitely there but I never had a bad one. Made my trip that much more enjoyable.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours light gold with a foamy/creamy white head. Aroma is bready with some grassy/herby hop. Med minus body. Flavor is lightly bready with some very mild hop. Doesn’t really come together for me.
Earlier Rating: 2/25/2007 Total Score: 2.1
Somewhat grassy, corny aroma. Thinh golden color with a white head that laces a bit. Decent mouthfeel. Taste is clean, but virtually non-existant. There is a very light sweetness, and there is offsetting hop in the finish. Just not much of anything though.

Aroma has some cereal and corn notes. Totally watery taste. Only some mild maltiness is detectable and a slightly bitter aftertaste.
