0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
This pale lager whale was found in a 7/11 near the Khaosan Road, Bangkok. The pour’s pissy light gold with a tiny head. The nose is cardboard, vomit, some ribbon candy. The taste is cruddy cardboard, some sweet syrup and general nastiness. Light body, loads of carbonation. Overall, this is cheap artificial swill, even by dodgy pale lager standards. At least the price was right...

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
With the obscure yo-yo alcohol content of Thai beers I find this strange as a lighter choice at a still staggering 5.4% ABV. From the now blue labelled king brown not quite chilled as the heat of the afternoon was hard to avoid. It pours a medium gold and sparkling with a loose and desperate head of white that eventually fades. Lemon zest and honey drenched corn flakes on the nose with a light grassy hop and toasted malt note. With a clean nose it was oddly vegetal on the palate. Cereal-like grainy mid-palate and into the sweet, malt-driven swallow. Low hop; slightly spiced. Relatively light bodied but a residual sugary note makes it a little too cloying once it warms. An OK Thai lager, just OK! (64cL, Best after 02/06/12, Big 1 Super Market, Bangla Road, Phuket, Thailand)

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Cheap Thai macro brew beer. Not sure what else to say? A bit malty. A bit sweet. Bought it at the 7 - 11 near the hotel for around $1 so no real expectations...

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
33cl can in Bangkok. Light golden colour with a white head. Lightly matly with just a hint of bitterness. The usual South-East Asian lager. Quite boring, but also quite drikable in the heat when it’s served ice cold!

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can, shared by GrOve. The palest yellow body, under a layer of tiny blond bubbles. Malt drops and wet cardborard aroma. Unfresh sour-sweet malt/adjunct flavor. Some stale hops and a touch of artificial sweetened lemonade. Light to medium full. Sharp sourish aftertaste. Not for me.
