Brewed by San Miguel
Style: Pale Lager
Mandaluyong City, Metro Manila, Philippines
Not technically a Spanish beer, but if you go to Spain on your holidays then more than likely you will be drinking San Miguel. Spain; sun, sea, sand, sex and San Miguel (or perhaps Sangria!) its part of your holiday package. It was, in fact, first made in 1890 by a Spaniard in the district of San Miguel, Manila – the capital city of the Philippines. It also has a strong partnership with the Spanish-made San Miguel Beer, and both San Miguel’s have signed an agreement to jointly promote San Miguel Beer and expand its global footprint.
The original San Miguel Brewery, Inc. was founded as La Fabrica de Cerveza de San Miguel in 1890 and incorporated as the first San Miguel Brewery, Inc. in 1913. It was renamed San Miguel Corporation (SMC) in 1963, having grown into one of the Philippines’ largest business conglomerates with core interests in alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, food and packaging.
Review: Bottle of San Miguel pale lager, 4.8%ABV
The appearance is that of a typical lager, golden and clear. It has a very thin head that disappears quickly, with a small amount of lacing.
Not a strong aroma which smelled fresh and clean. Slight grainy aroma.
Taste was light and smooth with traces of grain and a soft aftertaste .
