Idiosynkrasie (6871) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2012
320ml bottle. Clear golden colour with small to average frothy white head. Bitter hop aroma, a strawy note. Monotonous strawy taste, light body, if able denoting, then soapy "finish".

Lived on this beer for three years. So glad to be back in North America. SMB is the staple beer of the Philippines. Its a full tasting beer with an unregulated alcohol content, in Philippines at least. Avoid it if you can.

This one isnt very good, but its very lager-y. Its on the level of "I dont want to drink this again" and isnt something Id recommend.

visionthing (4957) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 18, 2012
33cl bottle in Siem Reap. Clear pale golden with a small white head. Light malty aroma with a hint of caramel and a faint hint of hops. Sweet with very little bitterness. Far from what we know as pils, but no unpleasant aromas or flavours. Easy to drink and quite nice in the heat. (2012-05-03)

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear pale gold with minimal head. Aroma of light hops and a little sour apple. Taste is very lightly bitter and very lightly sweet. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, Ive had worse. But another country gets checked off the list.

Pours a light golden color. Smell is malts, slightly sweet. Taste is crisp, mild, some malts and grains. Overall an easy drinking warm weather beer.

This beer certainly has a monopoly over the Philippines beer world. Not bad not bad, just another SEA macrobrew, the rice is definitely there but I never had a bad one. Made my trip that much more enjoyable.

bhensonb (14495) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours light gold with a foamy/creamy white head. Aroma is bready with some grassy/herby hop. Med minus body. Flavor is lightly bready with some very mild hop. Doesnt really come together for me.
Earlier Rating: 2/25/2007 Total Score: 2.1
Somewhat grassy, corny aroma. Thinh golden color with a white head that laces a bit. Decent mouthfeel. Taste is clean, but virtually non-existant. There is a very light sweetness, and there is offsetting hop in the finish. Just not much of anything though.

Marduk (6773) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 27, 2012
330ml bottle, brewed in Hong Kong. Dark yellow, orange color. Very thin head, almost flat. Watery metallic aroma, faint hops. Light bitter hops, but mainly watery body.

Quiet refreshing and ok pilsener. Nice carbonation, not too watery, not too sweet.
