3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I really expected this to be a cheap trash beer only known for its low cost buzz by former military members stationed in the PI and tourists but... I really liked it even though I’m in the minority! Smooth and easy to drink on a hot day. Definately will try this one again!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, courtesy of Summer Santa Benzai. Sugary grainy sweet with almost no hops or bitterness. Surprisingly not horrible. But really not much more than a country tick either.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
33cl stubbi, forget the source. The sweet yet dry corniness prevails, sulphurs and metallics remain manageable. Less offish than a few European competitors in the same league. Exotic amnesiac.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
320ml bottle, shared with blackhaddock in his man cave. Many thanks to Erzengel for this! Pours a misty gold, thin white head. Aroma is grains, pale malt. Taste continues with a musty grainy character. Lightly sweet. Rather bland.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
320ml bottle, shared with minutemat on 5th Aug 2016. Golden pour with a white topping. Semi-sweet Pils/Lager with nothing to make it stand out from the thousands of similar beers all over the world. Refreshing and thirst quenching but not very inspiring or interesting. Surprised I had never rated it before, cheers Mat for bringing it to my place for our little tasting session.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
320mL bottle, courtesy of BuckeyeBoy (thanks man), pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out cheap corn and straw. Flavour is exactly the same: cheap corn and straw with a slightly stale quality. What you’d expect from a Filipino piss lager. Well, it’s a country tick.

Gifted from BuckeyeBoy. 320mL capped bottle poured into hotel glasses. Standard crappy equator lager. Corny and sweet with macro chemically flavors. No hops to speak of. Piss pale yellow color.
