Fatehunter (2567) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2013
A thin head on a clear, bright golden colored body. The aroma is non-existent; the mildest grain. The taste is mildly bitter and then watery middle to end. A crisp texture, high carbonation and light body. A lot going against this beer: smell, no taste and high carbonation coming up at the top of the list.

I tried this beer when I was an airman stationed in the Philippines with the US Air Force. I was at Clark Air Force Base, Angeles City in the Philippines and this beer was the local beer. It was never consistent as far as alcohol content but it was the beer that everyone drank. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Als Freund von kraftvollen Lagerbieren war ich wirklich überrascht am anderen Ende der Welt ein solches "Lerckerli" gefunden zu haben.

Comically large bottle at Shenzhen Bao’an. Bright yellow. Basically zero head. Spicy start but it mellows into overly sweet malt.

Faint, malty aroma. Clear straw colour. Sweet malty front with slight bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Fine for casual sipping.

LazyPyro (1213) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2017
320ml bottle. Clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma: sweet pale malts, grainy. Taste: sweet grainy malt, corn. Light bodied, average carbonation. Standard lager, sweeter than it needs to be but at least it’s better than San Mig Light and doesn’t suffer from skunking.

Thick head that dissipates quickly. Pleasant taste, minimal bitterness. This is an underrated beer, and is one of the most requested of all beers when I have friends over. Very easy to drink, and I can say that with confidence (considering how much of San Miguel I have imbibed over the years). There is a reason this is one of the world’s largest selling beers. I plan to drink more of it.

It pours light golden with a white head It has moderate head retention with some lacing. It has grainy sweet aroma with some herbal and grass as well. The flavors are dominate by a malty, grainy sweetness. There are some grassy elements with herbal flavors as well. It has a moderately light body with moderately low bitterness. The aftertaste is grainy sweet. Overall, it is a lager with mostly malty aromas and flavors, but not without some hops that are noticeable.
