1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can, at the Cathay lounge in HK. Totally forgettable. I had San Miguel for years while I served the Philippines in a different life, and under a different point of view, as far as beer was concerned. I could never know it was that bad. I hope I can get a better tick mark for Hong Kong while here, and although this is brewed in HK, it counts here for the Philippioes, anyway..

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
(Can, 0.3 l - the Hong Kong version, courtesy of rosenbergh, 20130724) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was small, white and it disappeared quickly. Aroma had starch and sweetness. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, starch and hint of bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet. Tastes like a soda with hint of bitterness. I’m unable to like this.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the beer store. Pale yellow, fizzy white head. Aroma of dry grass and urine. I’m gonna give it this - it does taste like the remnants of a pilsner, not just a crappy lager. Not sure how they accomplish this. It’s still not good. Drink it very cold and smile for your filipino friends.

I expected nothing and got nothing. It’s just an average faceless lager. Better than water though.
