I got curious when I heard from friends that there's a new San Miguel Beer with a twist. It’s called San Miguel Alcoholic Malt Beverage, basically it’s San Miguel Beer added with Lemon and Apple. So when I got the chance, I asked my online friends (via my social network sites) on where I can find these new beers, some answered S&R, Mini-Stop and other similar 24-hour convenience stores.
So I hopped to C-Mart near Fatima University, a convenience store just near my area and luckily I found them. Each San Miguel Flavored Beer is priced at P29.00 (price may differ in other stores) available in two variants, Lemon & Apple. Seeing the San Miguel Alcoholic Malt Beverage for the first time, I immediately noticed the two variants by the color of the crown (tansan), red for apple and yellow for lemon.
First, I’m not really a fan of beers, because of its bitter taste. But this one is different, it has the same kick of beer but without the bitter taste, and I found out it has less calories too compared to other Alcopops! So that’s a plus point for me. This is the first time I’ve tasted flavored beers and I’m happy with it. So I’m now excited to share the good news to my other friends. I’m sure this one will be one of our favorite ‘drinks’ whenever we have gatherings.
San Miguel Brewery’s Alcoholic Malt Beverages (AMB) has 3% Alc. /Vol. on each 330 mL bottle, but I feel like I’m not drinking a beer at all. That’s a good thing for me because that means I can stay all night long drinking this, compare to the times when I’m drinking other alcoholic beverages which makes me throw up after a few time :)
My favorite flavor is the APPLE one, because its sweetness eliminates the bitter taste of the beer. I also recommend that you drink this one, ice cold! I’m sure this one will be a hit to all Filipinos. Drink Moderately! =)
