SAN MIGUEL PALE PILSEN

San Miguel Pale Pilsen. San Miguel Brewery (SMB) is a subsidiary of San Miguel Corporation (SMC), which has been operating in the Philippines since 1890.  It’s the Philippines’ largest brewery with a market share of over 95%. San Miguel Pale Pilsen is also known as San Miguel Beer (SMB) and San Miguel Draft.  It’s the company’s flagship brand and the Philippines’ top selling brew.

Around the Philippines it’s most commonly called SMB. It’s commonly sold in a 320 ml bottle, 330 ml can or the 1L Grande bottle. The 1L bottle goes for around 80 Philippine Peso (<$AU2) in some local restaurants whereas hotels and flashier restaurants will usually charge you the same for a 320ml bottle.

 It claims to be expertly brewed for a full flavour. Brewed with imported malt, German and American hops, it’s a respectable 5% ABV. Apparently it’s exported to over 40 countries.

Typical lager appearance -  pale yellow with relatively high carbonation.  Moderately sweet, slightly grainy malt flavour with a clean finish. A refreshing beer when served ice cold in the hot climate, it’s a good location beer.

Probably one of the more palatable beers in Asia.
