San Miguel Especial.

To make the best beer we could, we travelled the world to find the very best it had to offer. And nearly 130 years later, San Miguel Especial is testament to that journey. A premium pilsner style lager, golden in colour and sparkling, with a generous white creamy head and citrus aroma, San Miguel Especial perfectly balances bitterness to deliver full bodied beer with a clean, crisp and refreshing taste.
