This is a beer that will have your kidney quizzing: "what the hell was that that went through there so fast?" Light straw color, head fades quickly. Slight citrus smell very little taste. I was able to detect some grains and slight hopping, sweet finish. Not really a beer I would classify as a “Pilsen”. Not even a lame attempt at one……sweet finish????? They must love corn and rice so much in the Phillipines that they like it in beer to....even though it doesn’t belong there

Skunky aroma. Pale straw color with white head. Tastes like a cheap domestic lager.

PhillyBeer2112 (2711) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2004 Pretty typical adjuncty pale lager. Corny, not unattractive pale golden color. Light unbalanced flavor on the sweet side with hardly any hops. If not ice cold it warms into a thickish corny sweet mess.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2004
Bottle: Poured gold with a beautiful head that lasted and laced very well. Not much aroma... some sweet malt, some hops. Watery malt flavour with noticable hop (POR??). Body was similar. Generally watery and witohut much flavour, but nevertheless can be refreshing. Good for a hot, humid day.

Lubiere (12360) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2004
Blonde with a malty grassy nose. Rather standard lager taste, slightly better than molbat, but still not uplifting. Bottled.

San Miguel has a very refreshing feel. It also has nice mild taste and it makes you want more. Very good beer.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2004
Ah, yet another cheap-smelling, straw-colored pale lager. Grassy and cardboardy. Drinking this is about as exciting as watching a pile of fresh shit attract flies.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2004
Pale gold with nice white head. Mild malt flavors with only a hint of hops. Typical mega-lager.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2004
Grainy and skunky hop aroma. Pale golden color, small white head, few lace. Grainy, skunky hop, light sweet, light bitter, typical asian lager.

clutchrogers (90) - Broussard, Louisiana, USA - APR 6, 2004
malt aromas. golden color with a thin almost nonexistent head. malt flavors mild hops very dry and unexciting. just like a thousand other blond lagers. mindless swill.
