Got a 6-pack at Binny’s at Highland Park, IL. No particles floating, nor was there dust in the bottle (A good sign, considering this is an imported beer). I coulld not detect a skunky scent when I opened it (another good sign). Slight acidic taste at first, but has a clean finish and aftertaste. Best drunk ice-cold on a summer day!

Excellentlooking beer - clear gold with a substantial white head. Hoppy aroma jumps out and grabs you. Specific smell is a refed woody, raw hop aroma. Flavour is grassy hop with a nice maltiness that comes through the pleasant bitterness. The malt is perfect. All in all, the best beer I’ve ever had the pleasure to taste.

Golden color. Crisp. Refreshing especially on the first swig. Not bitter. Smooth.

This beer is brewed for HOT climates, to properly enjoy this beer the temperature must be at least 30c with high humidity. Anything less will negatively impact your enjoyment. Beer was drank straight from the bottle so no head or color inspection done. Mouthfeel is great, this beer has an amazing thirst quenching ability. Slight pleasant after-taste that lingers a bit too long. This beer is a staple while traveling in the Philippines.

Not the same as I enjoyed in the PI, but damn close. Normally find the larger, this is the proper Pale Pilsen! Rare to find, this has a bit of an aftertaste not familiar with the non-imported version, but after a second sip, that aftertaste is quickly unnoticed. Good smooth, light. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
