San Miguel Beer has been brewed since 1890 in the Philippines. A Spanish brewery, La Segarra, was created and licensed in 1946 to brew San Miguel Beer in Europe. In 1953 the Spanish brewery acquired sole and independent rights to San Miguel Beer in Europe, and by 1957 had changed its name to San Miguel. In 1991 Bulmers acquired to rights to distribute the Spanish brewed San Miguel in the UK. In 2000 the Spanish brewery Mahou bought the San Miguel Brewery, along with the European rights to San Miguel Beer. In 2003 Scottish & Newcastle purchased the UK distribution rights from Mahou, and brewed it in Edinburgh. In 2008 Carlsberg acquired the UK rights, and moved production to its brewery in Northampton. In 2010 Carlsberg reached a deal with Mahou to brew and distribute the 5% San Miguel throughout Europe. Mahou retain the brewing rights to all other European San Miguel branded beers.

Golden pour, small head. Aroma of cheap pilsener malt, Flavour is malty, quite sweet. Boring.
Earlier Rating: 2/25/2010 Total Score: 2.2
Golden pour, small head. The bottle is simple yet refreshing with faint malt and even more faint hop. The can had some metallic and cardboard sidenotes as well, seems more sweet. Bottle is a lawnmower, can is worse.

33cl from keg at Pitufos (Valladolid). Slightly creamy head for not a bad lager (important to have from a good installation), medium-carbonated.

schavuitje (267) - APELDOORN, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2017
Een vrij drinkbaar bleek onderste, zeer helder, lichtjes lichtgelijk geel lichaam, geen schuim, vage tonen van fijne mout met een bittere rand; Raad goed koud voor de beste smaak

Una cerveza tipica de un laboratorio quimico y un producto de mescla de todos ingradientes de alta calidad de un laboratorio avanzado. Bastante bebible, con mucho gases. Pierde a Mahou Clasica pero gana a Cruzcampo! Adelante! Ojo- tomar muuuy Frio!

Yaayy and another forgettable international Lager with lot’s of grain, Skunk and in particular sweetish finish...

MeadMeister31 (3) - GERMANY - JAN 29, 2017 does not count
Erinnert mich auch in Deutschland immer an Sommer, Sonne, Strand und Meer. Egal ob aus der Dose, 0,2 L Flasche oder 0,33 L Flasche. Das neue Design gefällt mir auch sehr gut.

Moved an old rating from the Phillipines version to this entry, as this is the correct one. Apparently, I wasnt impressed, looking at the rating. Although my comments can describe any pale lager :-) Original rate, tuesday, august 16, 2005: Clear yellow color, short white head. Aroma is a bit grainy, some hops. Light sweet and bitter taste.

Deep golden nice thick head. Aroma sweet malty, taste is refreshing sweetness with gentle bitter balance. Full body. Hint of citrus. East drinking standard.

Muskelbiber (13) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2016
0.33 dose, Spanien - Strand. Ein massentaugliches Bier. Etwas herb, hopfig im Abgang

Bottle & Keg. I’ve certainly had this, with Spain, alongside France my most visited countries outside of the UK, but given it’s an undistinguished macro lager it’s hard to remember exactly what it was like. It always seemed better poured in its own country, but maybe the hot sun had something to do with that perception.
