This is a pale yellow clear liquid of some sort. It as no special color. No special smell. It comes from the islands. Taste is of a cheap massed produced copy-paste beer. There is nothing ere. Nothing different. Hints of canned corn and no hops. I do not see anything going anywhere wit this, the name is deceiving as it is for marketing and that is all.

look: 2.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

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 poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. I was very hopeful of this beer as I had one 20 years ago ant thought it was so good. Must not have been the same product!! This beer did pour a nice head. However the taste was terrible, a sour taste and smell was all up in this beer. Bready, yeasty yuk. I wish I know which San Migues I had way back, it seemed it was in a dark colored label. The beer was a very clean rice beer, very neutral but refreshing. NOT THIS BEER>

2.48/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

12 oz bottle into a goblet.

Lightly flavored pale lager with a striking resemblance to American style adjunct lagers and strikingly little in common with the traditional pilsener style. Light corn and sharp grainy flavor interact with a limp bitterness that comes off with light harshness and little flavor. There is a little cooked vegetable and commercial white flavor as well. Light body and pale gold color. Not much to praise. I quite enjoyed San Miguel Dark, so this was a disappointment. It would be better if they didn't call it a "pilsen" style beer. Not the worst adjunct lager around for sure.
