San Miguel Premium Lager

San Miguel Corporation

Philippines

This was my first beer from the Philippines, and I have to say I'm impressed. I really shouldn't be, as a light lager shouldn't be that hard to screw up, and yet so many brewers consistently brew crap. A refreshing, clean, light beer with a little bite to it. If you can find it, definitely give it a try.

My dad used to drink this back in the day, when San Miguel was actually one of the few imports you could get. I hope for his sake it was better then. It was a basic light lager. Sure, lots of history, as the brewery goes back before the days when the US opened a can of whoop-ass on Spain in the Spanish-American War, I bet that was also the last time this beer could have been seriously considered "good."
