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.

The beer of choice for the boys stationed in the Phillipines. Chech-style pils. Bit of the sulfer and iron that is expected from this sort of beer, but there is a nice undercurrent of succulent caramel and maybe fruit juice in the nose. Not a particularly distinctive flavor, but if you like a good pils, you’ll enjoy this.

I was surprised by the quality of the beer contained within this small bottle. It wasn’t very pretty (think Coors with a hint of straw), but that’s probably the only bad thing I can say about it. It had a slightly spicy taste that reminded me a bit of fennel seed. Would definitely buy in a pinch.
