Rating #948 - February 3, 2014 - Beer 1 of 8 in @coopwinespirits February Discovery Beer Bag - My first beer from the Phillipines? - Clear golden pour. Bubbly white head. Smells like grassy, grainy euro lager. Taste is up to that par, light grassiness, very light maltiness. Light bodied, barely there alcohol, medium-heavy carbonation. A rip roaring Meh! for me.

martjoobolut (673) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 1, 2014
0,33L can. Pours and smells like typical macro pale lager. Taste is rather sweet, but somewhat artificial. It is over carbonated. Overall: rather disgusting beer. This one is rather bad even by macro lager standards.

Had a few of these beers while in the Philippines. The beer had an average-dark gold color with a smaller foamy white head with modest retention, lacing, and cling. Its aroma was not distinctive, with lighter notes of barley, grain, and perhaps corn. It was a mostly and lightly bitter grainy beer with some light malt and barley characters. A thinner, average-wetness beer with a light mouthfeel and lower carbonation.

Can, from the can. Aromas of grain, bread, and a metallic note. Easy drinking here and pretty plain. Grain, bread, and a sweet finish. Just decent

Butters (3751) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Sampled alongside several of the other varieties. This one is very similar to the mig light, but pours a dark piss yellow and the lacing isn’t as sticky. A little more buttery as well. I will say, that off all the brews they make, this is in the top quartile. But that still isn’t saying all that much.

Swaroga (1322) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2014
320ml bottle. Light golden with almost no head. NOSE : biscuit, bread with butter, some delicate citrus notes. SIP : the beer is well carbonated and has a water like texture. It’s sweet and stays like that till the end. It has a very delicate bitterness. OVERALL : the beer is cloying sweet. Good thing about it it has a good carbonation.

(Bottle) Pours in clear pale body with almost no head, only a white ring. Aroma has mostly malt notes, with some fruitiness, hints of wet straw. Taste is malt sweet with notes of cooked corn, medium bitterness, short lasting. Body is medium with oily and dry texture, carbonation is medium.

Pour from can, this beer is light gold in color. Adequate head but flattens fast. Smell a little bit citrus and taste a bit corn and bitter. Overall, drinkable and better than I expected.
