2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle in a Manhattan Chinatown Vietnamese Restaurant, since they were out of the Saigon. Not bad. This was a perfectly fine beer in the context, cheap, not disgusting. Very sweet, syrupy light lager. Clear and good. Doesn’t get in the way of food. Could use nicer ingredients though. Still, it is what it is and that ain’t bad.
