Flipbrewer (33) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 25, 2004
(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.

csaso (1765) - Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle (Vietnam version) - average size foamy head, pale straw color, pretty typical pale lager aroma and flavor of corn and light malt, maybe slightly better than your typical pale lager

bottle. Pours a sparkling golden color with rapidly disappearing white head. Sweet aroma of grain and adjunct fermentables like corn. Sweet flavor along the lines of malt liquor. Thin and light bodied. Typical fizzy yellow pale lager.

trapped (1508) - New York, TURKEY - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle tasted in Batumi, Georgia last summer (from notes). Pours bright yellow with medium sized foamy white head, malt aroma, high carbonation, malty taste, abrupt finish with a hint of hops. Another generic lager.

I got this to get Vietnam but it’s French. Pours a light gold with a white head that sizzled away in seconds. Aroma and taste of grains and corn. It had a green glass skunk to it even though it’s in a brown bottle. There was a chemical aftertaste very late in the finish that gets very strong and leaves a bitter pool chemical slimy tongue thing. Gross
