It is possible that they are all the same beer, but with different names, but at this point we don’t know for sure.

Pours a clear golden yellow. No head or lacing. Hint of lemongrass and apricot on the nose. Dull, slightly metallic finish. A definite dud, even among light beers.

not sure of the difference between this and the Spanish version. I’ve had em both, and they both kinda suck almost equally. Need to have a side by side...

Bottle at my hotel in Quezon City, Manila, Philippines. Transparent gold with minimal white head. Aroma of corn and wheat. Tastes of corn, malts and wheat. Very funky and not good, but refreshing on a hot day.

Typical lager with nothing special in it. There is absolutely nothing going on in this beer. Just drinkable beverage. In hot and stuffy Philippines it’s refreshing as hell.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 Review: Bottle of San Miguel pale lager, 4.8%ABV A tasty beer that’s easy to drink and a refreshing choice on a hot summers day. The appearance is that of a typical lager, golden and clear. It has a very thin head that disappears quickly, with a small amount of lacing. Not a strong aroma which smelled fresh and clean. Slight grainy aroma. Taste was light and smooth with traces of grain and a soft aftertaste .

I guess something must be said for the ubiquitous nature of this style of beer. It’s the least offensive, easiest to pound all day and night so you can look like a champ (douche) and is usually cheap to make, therefore to buy. This one is golden wheat colour, tastes and smells of grain, corn and white sugar. Not awesome.
