Best 33-Export I tasted ever ! light colored , off-flavour free , well balanced LAGER type beer. I had the advantage to taste this beer directly coming from the brewery - absolutely no comparison to that what the stores make out of it (some store it directly in the sunlight !). Competative to best bavarian beers . Even after several bottles there were no headaches ! Heard they recently changed recipe to pure malt - looking forward to get that !

"33" (ironically named given Rolling Rockís toasting reference) is a crisp, uncomplicated lager with a nice hop bite. Admittedly, those whose tastes run strictly to the big and complex will want to stay away--but you folks just want to drink bread! 33 seems dry, a bit astringent--quite refreshing. Itís eminently "sessionable."

"33" Export has a medium, stark-white head and a clear, golden appearance, with lots of lacing and little fine particles floating about. The aroma is of toasted barley and subtle spice. Taste is of toasted barley malt, grain, sweetness, and a light hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is watery and relatively thin, and "33" Export finishes crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking. This is a very good lager. RJT

Served as a Vietnamese Restaurant. Pours yellow with a white head. Smells of light perfume, spicy. Tastes of sweet pilsner, some dryness on the finish with a stray hop note.

The jury is still out on this one. I have sampled this one more than one occasion, perhaps I was trying to find what that certain flavor was, and if I liked it. It has the look of a typical lager. But it has a very sweet, almost spicy aroma and finish. Itís cool, crisp, refreshing with spicy food. I do not recommend it as a party beer due to its powerfully spicy finish.

Nothing wrong with this beer, it is not best by any means but fairly good beer from Vietnam. Would not give it low ratiing received here. Great beer of choice when going to Vietnamese restaruant. It is OK beer but nothing more. I like Sapporo more.

Not sure why this beer is getting that bad of a wrap. I feel it has a nice taste for a mass produced beer and a very refreshing smooth finish. Granted there is really very little complexity to speak of but who cares. Very good on a hot summers evening.

Heineken France? Thatís funny, the bottle Iím drinking from says it was brewed and bottled in Vietnam. Either way, much better than I thought it would be. Not sure Iíd pay that much again though.

Sweet honey and apple aroma. Clear piss yellow, medium head, good lacing. Decidedly unsweet sour apple flavor that dwindles to nothing at midpalate and reappears with more of an apple core taste. Odd beer and not in a bad way. I could drink this often. I think Iíll have another.
