0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
No real colour, pours to a white head that falls off to nothing in a second flat. No lacing. Low malt notes if any. Bitter but not from hops almost artificial flavour. This beer is bloating and needs to be chilled to near zero to reduce to high carbonation. I am not sure why this one gets accolades as it is just another pale lager brewed from heavy use of corn sugar or similar adjunct. .

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.

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.

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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from cool Belgian style bottle into a willybecher glass, a crystal-clear straw colour with weak white foam. Weak is also the word for its flavour, aroma, mouthfeel, everything. Light body, strong carbonation, weak aftertaste. It’s not offensively bad, per se, just bland.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Light golden, small and mostly diminishing head. Light, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, light cardboard. Body is light, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, faint - light metal.Finish is short, malty lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, light metal and cardbord. Watery and sweetish lager with no bitteress for the meek masses - that’s it.
