355ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold. Aroma: This beer smells mildly sweet, with just a little hint of corn. No discernible hop, but not offensive at all. Appearance: This beer has a crystal-clear, bright yellow body. This beer has a low amount of visible carbonation, and a thin, white cap. This beer leaves thin lacing. Taste: This beer is lightly flavored. This beer has a light malt-forward flavor. The malt flavor has little to no trace of adjuncts. There is no discernible hop flavor, and just a shadow of bitterness. This beer’s flavor is inoffensive, non-aggressive, and easy to drink. Palate: This beer is light bodied, but not watery. This beer is highly carbonated. This beer’s finish is short, and ends on very fine bitterness. This beer’s finish is a little sticky. Overall: This beer is a fine light beer; there is nothing about it that actively offends or disgusts. This beer is a beer I would choose if offered alongside other light beers.

Bottle from local Yamaya store. Light sewer nose, abattoir, and washed up flotsam under the pier. Bright medium straw color. Mild spritzy, crappy initial / malt is so thin / goes a bit sourish and even funky / then a lousy tingling sweetness. Thin, watery. Rather unpleasant overall.

Oh ya, nuthin’ better than an obscure light beer to re-ignite one’s passion for craft beer!! I think this is drunk by all the Philipinos in Bermuda who don’t want to actually get drunk on their downtime (or can’t) and just sort-of-want-to-be-seen drinking beer. Has a golden body with minimal carbonation and a modest white head that does not disappear too quickly. Aroma is of rotten cabbage. Flavour is rotting cabbage, but thankfully not too offensive as the palate is just so watery. Weak and offensive, and sadly as I expected.

Good for a Light beer. Clear golden with smal head, grain and malt aromas like dough and corn. Light body, low hop bitterness, watery end.

Poured from a can into a glass while in Thailand. Aroma has a light, sweet graininess with faint grassy hop character. Light sulfur note and no diacetyl. Pours a pale yellow with a thin white head that quickly recedes to the Shea where it lingers. Light lacing and no legs. Flavor has a light, sweet graininess with faint grassy and floral hops. Light sulfur note and low bitterness. A slight twang in the finish, which I think is from the hops. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall an alright light beer. In some ways it is better than regular San Miguel as the flavor isn't so watery, but there is more sulfur in the light version and the hops are fainter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can drank from the can. Same doughy aroma with some grain thrown in. A hint of puke lingers. Watery bland flavor with grain and bread. This brew is lighttttt

Sampled every which way. Bottle, Can, Keg. They all suck pretty much equally though, I think the clear bottle is a bit noticeably worse. It definitely doesn’t stand up to it’s claim of "the same refreshing full flavored taste Pale Pilsen". Not as enjoyable as the pale. This is like the bud light, compared to budweiser. Except that budlight is a little better than this.

@ Lanta Casuarina Beach Resort, Koh Lanta, Thailand. Burk från 7-eleven, Koh Lanta. Det här var riktigt dålig! Som att dricka småbeskt kolsyrat vatten med en metallisk touch!!

tadahster (112) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Biting, fermented, rotten fruit, forest berries, strawberry aroma. Zero taste. Resembles mineral water. Reminds a little of metal pipes.

briansinger33 (1) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2013 does not count
Skunky gold but not quite, cloudy for a pilsner, nice to have 5% abv in a "light" beer but I’d rather drink something of quality. On a hot humid Manila day it suffices for refreshment.
