330ml bottle from Market Place by Jasons, Hong Kong. Pours clear golden with a dissipating white head. Metallic aroma of malt, a bit odd, with a sweet finish.

Another one from PH courtesy of Richard. Cheers! Poured a deep amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is very sweet, and malty. Heavily sweet to taste, no bitterness. Light body, thin texture, quite fizzy. Not a good beer, tasted better no-alcohol malt drinks.

330ml can (thanks Ares). Pale yellow color. Tiny size, white head, stays. Alcohol, malty, burnt plastic in aroma. Malty, sour, raw plastic in taste. Just plain awful. Massive thanks to people who shared that can with me. I owe you one!

330ml can - Thanks Ares’ mate!
Bland aroma, but what is there is fruity and very sickly. I fear for my eyesight. Disgusting tomato taste. Some glue too. Pale gold, some odd flecky floating bits. Almost a horror. Yeugh, no, actually a horror. Sickly tomato, and god-knows-what chemicals.

One notch above Pale Pilsen version. This one they don’t cut with sugar. Its a faint difference but slightly noticeable in the strength of the flavor. I ranked this lower though since it doesn’t get the "readily available and cheap as heck" bonus points that the regular version gets. Cheers.

330 ml green bottle bought at Market Place by Jason’s in K11, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear golden yellow colour; Half finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Small lacing and slightly fizzy carbonation; Pungent smell of malt, with corn syrup, light canned peaches, light musty, light bread, light lemon and light grass; Medium sweet taste of light malt, with notes of tartness, light syrup, soggy bread, soda, hint of metallic, thin lemon citrus and very light grass; Mid to light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is slightly maltier macro Pale, with thicker palate but still really watery. Sweet syrupy soda water, soggy and stale, plus slightly tart notes, faint metallic and hint of wet paper. Poor… Hoppiness is very light lemon and faint grass in nose and taste. Bitterness is barely detectable. Sugar water finish; Wet after taste, very easy and quite sweet to mouth.

Comments: This is a poor Premium Lager: watery, slightly more maltyness, sweet, soggy, barely any hoppiness, and bits of off tastes floating around. Slightly better other San Mig’s Asian macro Pales, but don’t waste your time with this garbage brew.

Can drank from the can. Classy can might I say! Aromas of grain, bread, and a touch of sweetness. Full body compared to all the other San Miguel brews. No sweet adjunct flavors here. A bit grainy finish but really smooth. Touches of caramel come to mind, mixed in with grain. Nice brew and a real surprise.

Butters (3967) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2014
one of the best container designs also has one of the better contents! Pours the darkest out of the group, but still barely discernable. This one is like a fuller bodied and slightly more flavorful version of the pale pilsen. Not as hoppy as the super dry, but falling somewhere in between.

Hansen (7684) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2013
Golden coloured and clear. Has a white head, diminishing. Odd, grainy aroma. Flavor is mainly sweet.
