SAN MIGUEL PREMIUM ALL MALT

San Miguel Premium All Malt. Yes really. They included ‘all malt’ in the beer name.

Could this be the Crownie of the Philippines? A dressed up version of the staple Pale Pilsen, it brags it uses no adjuncts and contains the dreaded word ‘premium’.

It also comes in a green bottle which, according to my bottle-colour theory,  should make it thin and grassy like Heineken. I tried this in the country of origin just to make sure.

Apparently, it’s brewed with pilsner malt and hops from Europe, Australia and North America. According to their website “the result is a smooth, full-flavored, slightly sweetish, golden, premium lager with balanced bitterness that washes the drinker away in style. This brew is truly meant for those who enjoy the finer things in life.”

Medium to thin body with a slightly better mouthfeel than the standard Pale Pilsen. Sweet malt flavour with a honey and slightly grassy taste. It’s missing that crisp and bitter finish a fine lager should have.

Like the Crownie I’d drink the VB equivalent over this.

 

4/10
