A mild malt/grain flavor with a slight bitter/sour aftertaste. It's a moderately good pilsner/lager

I've had this beer from time to time and from what I remember it's a bready, grainy, malty macro lager that tastes really good in the tropical heat. The hops were subdued by some grainy malt, along with a touch of sweet caramel biscuits. The aftertaste is a little peppery and zesty, but not much to remember. The body is thin, yet crisp and smooth. Overall, it's a standard international pilsner/lager.
With this said, I drank it a while back in Bali, Indonesia. Currently I live in Northeast China and I have not seen San Miguel available around here. I am travelling to the Philippines this April 2015, so I will update my review/notes then after I consume several of these light bodied brews. Cheers!

Tasted like an OK Pilsner but had this strange, gritty texture and earthy aftertaste that was a deal breaker...

Half liter can smuggled back from Dubai by Joe M, thanks for the opportunity! Pale golden color with a smallish quickly dissipating bone white tightly bubbled head. Light bready pilsner malt, faint floral hop, hints of light fruitiness. The taste is big sweet bread with a bit of fruitiness and little to no hop flavor. Middle of the road macro style pilsner/lager.

Experienced in : Manila
Appealing to me : its kind of bitterness
Less appealing to me : color

I like this beer and will look forward to my next drink.

Not much to say here. The aroma is briefly sour and then weakly grainy sweet with a touch of grape-like fruitiness. The white head quickly dissipates to nothing; the body is an extremely bright and crystal clear amber. The flavor has some grainy sweetness, a hint of hop bitterness, and a slight sour quality that lurks in the background. Some malt lingers in the finish. The body is light and moderately carbonated with a faint mineral texture.

Perfectly drinkable, refreshing, and woefully unremarkable.
