Bottle: Had this one years ago: Small white head on top of a light yellow beer. Hops and malts in the aroma, even a hint of something honey. Also hops and malts in the taste, with a hint of herbs. Not bad, but absolutely not the best Pilsener.

It’s beer. Passable on draft. Nothing offensive about it. A bit sweet, fine hot weather lager.

bottle. Pours a clear, pale golden with a big white head. Nose is of grain. taste is of grain, but at least is a little sweet. Mouthfeel is medium-thin and watery with good carbonation.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle at Minneapolis Beer Fest. There really is no shortage of crappy pale lagers, is there? They just keep coming and coming. Oh well, one less that I have to try going forward.

Another good go-to of mine in the adjunct (mass produced) beers! A twist of lemon or lime and let’s fire up the grill or fryer! This brew poured up clear golden-colored body sporting a very bubbly head that quickly dissipated down to a thin sheen that left marginal lacing effects on the glass. Strong aromas of warm bread, fruits, and something akin to honeysuckles. Very light bodied and well-carbonated. Sweet malty flavors with an exceedingly refreshing finish with no harsh aftertastes.

jolo (1003) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 6, 2011
Bottle 32cl. A clear yellow color with an average white head. An aroma of malt. The taste is medium sweet. A light body, watery texture, soft carbonation and a abrupt finish.

My cousin brought this back for me from the source. Smells of...umm...not much. Color is a clear yellow with a very thin white head. Thin mouthfeel and doesn’t taste like much. Basically what you’d expect for a cheap beer. If you’re on this site, you know not to order this.

halfonit (1259) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 31, 2011
Pours a light golden clear color. Aroma is of dusty malts, orange peels, and hopls. Flavor is of malts, hops, raisin, and some dryness. Leaves a dry malt finish. I’m actuallly impressed.

Eine merkwürdige Aufmachung hat diese Flasche. Wirkt sehr antiquiert. Die Farbe erinnert mich an gedroschenes Stroh. Der Geruch kommt hopfig rüber. Das San Miguel wirkt anfangs recht perlig, driftet dann aber massiv in malzige Bereiche ab. Sehr monoton das Ganze .Test vom 21.1.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche
