2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2oz bottle, from Jungle Jim’s in Fairfield. Cool stubby custom-molded bottle. Clear golden color. Good thin kind of bubbly white head. Leaves good thicker lace, pretty impressive appearance for a pale lager, really. Medium body. Smooth, lightly soft, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Good, smooth, easy-drinking texture. Pretty impressive, love dat texture, despite the taste... Flavor comprises of some metallic macro twang, you know that disctinctive flavor. How to describe it? It’s got some good mildly peppery pilsner hops / malts, that’s nice, but then some odd metallic mustiness. Nice moderate sweet taste, light bitterness. Nice distinct perfect islander lager twang to it. Pretty damn solid pils. What’s happening here? Just had the dunkel earlier tonight with my dinner, I was impressed with that, too. This is a macro in the Philippines??? Who is the world power again? WTF AB-InBev??? Why can’t you do it like this? Shit. Makes me frustrated that the national lager of the philipines is this and we here in the US are stuck with Bud. We’re a country of profit margins, obviously, when what many of us consider to be a 3rd world country can make a lager this good in such mass quantities. It’s probably even better over there in the domestic. These guys are living the life. Good pils.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Crystal clear and very pale yellow, with a white quickly diminishing head. Corn and grain are the big flavours here. Hints of hops, very light and a little skunky. May have been an old bottle, but still. Could be worse, but there's really nothing to love here.

Can. Golden pale color with almos no head. Almost no aroma, light malty maybe. In aftertaste light hops. Nothing interesting.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from local Yamaya store. Sweetish malt nose, light Saaz-y hop, and just a touch of sewerish stuff. Medium straw color. Mild sweet malt initial with some amount of cardboard / rough it of hops in mid / finish has a more or less bitter edge. Thin-medium body, a bit too spritzy. Light. Not badly made.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
HK version, bottle from my student. fruity citrus, grass, corn, candy nose. Clear, deep gold, nice fine head. Bready, corny, ok hops, some citrus, almost no bitterness. Oh, no, there is some, all right, actually. Crisp body. Not terrible by any means, just lacking distinction. All right for an industrial lager.

Backlog. Tried it bottled. Just your standard mass-produced lager. Nothing to get excited about.
