It was launched in Nepal in 2004. It is one of the most popular brands of beer among the Nepalese consumers. San Miguel is available in the pack sized of 650 ml bottle and 500 ml can. San Miguel is a pilsen-style lager, golden yellow in colour with reflections of old gold. On the nose it offers hints of smoke against a background of grains. On the palate it is balanced, toasted, of medium bitterness with a prevailing subtle toasting of the barley. The medium persistence aftertaste holds echoes of liquorice.
