Pre-pour thoughts. I watched a couple of commercials for this. One with Sam Pinto, whoever that is, and kind from the 90’s, which I found to be funny. I like the stamped bottles. "Property of San Miguel Brewery" it says. Okay, so next time I’m in the Philippines I’ll try to remember to return it. I very much dislike the clear bottle. I like the description on the label, made me laugh. So far, so good, I guess.

Poured into pint glass. Poured perfectly! Not skunked! Very clear straw color. Poured with a nice one finger or so foamy, thickish white head. Actually a decent head retention. Pretty good lacing. Very carbonated.

Aroma is light roasted barley and rice. Rice actually is probably dominate. Light hops. Light banana, light grapeskin.

Taste is eh. I get rice husk, sort of a stale mildewy taste. Lightly sweet, a touch spicy bitter. That’s about it.

Mouthfeel is light bodied. Watery. Crisp and dry. So carbonated it leaves a crackle behind even after the swallow, which adds to the dryness.

Overall, for a light import in a clear bottle, this is remarkable. I’m blown away by the aroma. It lacks in taste, but so good. This has some notable characteristics to it, and is less industrial than American macro light lagers. Yes, I would buy this again, and I would recommend it.

Pours clear golden with very light foam. Aroma is citrus, dust, light malts, lemonade. Taste is also citrus, some dust, malts, syrup. Just bubbling sourish water. Not for me!

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Tom L. Clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma of cardboard, grains and vegetables. Sweetish flavor with cardboard, graininess, and a faint bitterish finish. Extremely watery.
