Nothing pilsen-like about it, it’s made with ’cereal’ grains. Classic light-struck, skunky aroma. Straw coloured. Tasted overly sweet and corny. Of the S.E. Asian beers that I have sampled, this is definitley the worst. Stick to Thai beer.

Where’s the beef? And in ’beef’ I meen flavor. Nothing more than a crisp, dry pilsner for a hot day.

The best beer to come out of the Philippines. To pricey here in the states but very cheap in the Philippines. If you like a strong tasting beer this is one of them.

Okay, An American walks into what he is told is the ’Best Mexican Resterant in Holland’ and he ordes the enchilada platter, and asks for a Dos Equis. He is told ’We do not have Dos Equis, in fact, we do not have Tecate, Sol, or even Corona’ So at a loss (note most people there are drinking wine with their Mexican food) he orders Sam Miguel. Not a bad beer, as a Mexican imatator, it will pass. It’s not Corona, it’s not Tecate, it is worth a try. Besides name another product from the Phillipenes you are proud to have purchased.

Pretty much as expected. Faint floral hop aroma. Pale yellow color. Quite watery, not a lot to speak of here.

A pretty standard Euro-pilsener. Not bad, not good.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2006 Can. Pale gold with white head, medium carbonation. Pale malty aroma, mild sweetness, very light scent of alcohol. Clean lager a bit on lighter side with some more character at the finish. Late metallic herbal hop. When fresh as mine was quiet drinkable, sadly light body lets alcohol to be more prominent that is should.
