I mean, it was bad, but not offensive. Pale pee in color, thin fizzy head. Thin, boring and very macro in flavor. This is probably what philippinos tailgate with.

Nische (2118) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2017
The Thai version of it (think this is correct?) From local restaurant in Kamala. Light orange with small head. Aroma and taste of bland malt, cardboard and light hints of bread. Meh.

Pours a clear golden with a white head. Vomit nose with a corny note. Nearly flavorless. Refreshing for a 5% beer.

Clear light golden beer with no head. Aroma is minimal malty, otherwise like sour water or something. Taste is also quite watery, maybe some malty sweetness. Light body. Soft carbonation. Drinkable right after you take it out from fridge.

330ml. can in Mae Kasa, Thailand. Pours a light gold with minimal head..Faint aroma; very little to identify. Carboardy taste, slightly sweet. No real interest. Generic light lager.

Bottle - Light apple and corn. Clear gold with a small white head. Just as it smells. Nothing bad, but nothing good either.

thirstyrabbit (1808) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle. Brewed by SMBHK - must be from the Hong Kong plant then? Pours pale yellow with a small head. No aroma to speak of. Maybe some weak hints of cereals and CO2 sourness. Watery body, taste has some light hints of sweetish malt and rice. Feels clean but thats because its so watery. Drinkable enough as something to flush down fast food with.

330ml can brewed in Vietnam by San Miguel Vietnam. Pours pale yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is wet cardboard, corn husks, rice. Very little in the way of taste: water, faint pale malt, paper.

Pre-pour thoughts. I watched a couple of commercials for this. One with Sam Pinto, whoever that is, and kind from the 90s, which I found to be funny. I like the stamped bottles. "Property of San Miguel Brewery" it says. Okay, so next time Im in the Philippines Ill 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. Thats 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. Im 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.
