(Rating # 33) Bottled Sparklingly clear light gold color. Poured an average sized frothy white head that lasted about 10 minutes before dissipating to thin layer; fair lacing. Aroma was cidery and slightly woody with a trace of rice starchiness. It also had an odd dirty, rubbery character that smelled a bit like an eraser. Started moderately sweet and lightly acidic with a moderate bitterness that lasted through to the finish. Middle had a cherry like fruitiness that appeared briefly. Finish and aftertaste had some odd notes: pleasantly dry and bready at first but soon after a subtle off-flavor emerged that had stale, fishy character to it. A strangely medicinal alcohol warmth also appeared which seemed out of place for a low ABV beer (4.9%). Bitterness in the aftertaste took on a harsh clinging quality that lingered in the back of the throat. Palate was light to medium with a somewhat watery texture and a lively carbonation. Can’t say I would have this one again.

12 oz green bottle. So I bought this to get Vietnam on the map only to find out this is listed as French on Ratebeer. What the freaking hell?? Filled 4/12/14, expires a year from that date, so we’re still good. As soon as I cracked this bad boy open, extreme skunk attacked my nostrils from two feet away. Pours clear golden with a quickly collapsing white head; leaves a long-lasting ring of foam. Taste is sweet with flavors of hay, vomit. Leaves a slight film on the tongue. Highly carbonated, thin. Trashy, for sure.

Drinking the Vietnamese version. Typical pale lager, cereal aromas. Sweet malt and wet paper dominate the taste. Some kind of finish, feel a coating on my tongue, not sure what it is

HIGHB4LL (792) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle at Young’s. Appearance: finger white head, good lacing, straw gold color, clear. Aroma: pils. Palate: light body, thin texture, average to soft carbonation. Taste: sweet malt with subtle pils hops that balances the beer. Drinkable, but that is about it.

JStax (3420) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2014
12 ounce green bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Color is clear gold with a white head of foam. The aroma has slinky grass and metallic corn. The taste has moderate sweetness and a bit of corn. Moderately dry bitterness toward the finish. Lighter body and medium to high carbonation.

Bottle, from old notes. Sweet with notes of cotton candy and sugar water. Meh...

martjoobolut (1248) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 20, 2014
0,25L bottle (4,5% ABV). Pours clear golden with white head. The head stays for a second. Aroma is sweet, malt, grains, maize. Flavor is very sweet, grainy, malt. Overall: disgusting.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2014 Local Thai place of all places, waiting for food. Nice n crisp. Slightly dry, champagne like effervescence and a hint of citrus. Really not too shabby for a pale lager. Not actually good, but just in the generic sense. Not offensive."

250ml bottle - thanks Marduk!
The only thing that’s not bland is papery and starchy. Pale, brief head. Odd rabbit food taste, and nasty chemicals. Scrape my tongue. Horror acrid. Scrape my tongue scrape my tongue, aaaaaaaaaagghhh!!!!!
