A very typical spanish lager in the sweet side. Can be drinked but you wont find anything special here. Not excesively sweet but a bit more than desiderable. 2.50 overall.

13 Apr 2016: From Carrefour. In shaker glass. Watching Vikings 4x02. More balanced than the typical cheap macro lager, with less bitterness, more smooth sip

It looks just like any other mass-produced pilsner, but has a Very uninviting taste of metal and corn. Very little aroma (if any at all). I would not get this again.

The "especial" San Miguel appears to be brewed in Spain and, at 5.4%, is stronger than the regular variety.

A pleasant drinking lager with no off notes or faults. The lacing is quite good and the smell and taste are rather unexceptional but quite nice.

Apples, sweet malt and a touch od herbal hop are all detectable.

Overall, an ok lager to drink cold. Better than many big name lagers.

72/100
