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.

Bottle & Keg. Ive certainly had this, with Spain, alongside France my most visited countries outside of the UK, but given its an undistinguished macro lager its 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.

Bue en pression aux Canaries. Belle biere blonde avec gros col de mousse a fines bulles a tres bonne tenue. Carbonation nulle. Arome sur le malt et le houblon frais. Ca se gate au final avec un gout metallique assez prononce. Dommage ca avait bien commence, et ca vient masquer le malt bien prononce pourtant.

ravidesai (978) - Bombay, INDIA - JUN 16, 2016
A bland boring lager. Fizzy and pale with a cloudy froth head. not much mouthfeel apart from fizz, taste is bland, with a lingering bread aftertaste Im sure its better on a Spanish beach

Wellhow do I describe this one without being rude. It is actually nothing wrong with it. No technical errors. Hmm well they might forgot to add flavor and aroma. Apart from that Clear pale golden. White head. Almost no aroma and very light flavor. Medium light body and an ok carbonation. Moderate sweetness and a tad low bitterness.

Highly drinkable because of an overall lack of taste. A nice bright golden colour with a good looking white head.
