Beer Archa was first launched in July 2004 to expand the market share, particularly in the standard and premium product groups, and to respond to increasing demands from a new generation of beer drinkers who prefer smooth beer with lower alcohol content. Beer Archa thus serves as another alternative for beer drinkers.

ClubGonzo (4901) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2011
Can from Thai supermarket. Fizzy yellow foamy lager, massive stale cardboard notes with hints of sulphur. Artificial, grainy watery stuff. Pretty damn bad, this is.

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2011
A pale blonde lager with a super thick white head. A soapy mineral malt aroma, grassy. In mouth, a chalky mineral water with sweet corn grits, light solventy notes, not very good. Can bought from 7-11 near my hotel, 25 B.

Koelschtrinker (14114) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2011
Muffig süßer Antrunk, im Mittelteil schwächer wird. Etwas getreidig-herb, verwässert. Im weiteren Verlauf leicht herb, minimal hopfig, höchstens im Abgang merkt man, dass das Bier wohl würzig sein soll. Joah... 7/7/7/7/9/7

A beer I never heard of before and quite hard to find. Saw only 1 minimarket at Koh Lanta, Thailand, that sold it. Nice surprise with a big head and a somewhat sweet taste.

oh6gdx (23682) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2011
Can (thanks to a workmate for bringing this back from Thailand!). Yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malts, some mild grains, mild rice as well as some slight strange bitterness. Flavour is sweet grains, mild malts and rice along with some mild bitterness. Easy to drink and not all that bitter, even though there is some slight bitterness.

Pours clear golden with short lived white fizzy head. Good carbonation. Aroma is grainy and hay plus something artificial. Flavor is lean hoppy and a bit sweet. Thin body. Watery hoppy finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2010
.64 liter bottle. Pours a clear golden with ok carbonation- pure white head, foams a bit, then dissipates. Aroma is slightly skunked budweiser smell, light pissy malt crackers, toast, lots of grass, herbs, and skunked hints and light off white wine. FLavor is very light- but has a distinct, crappy economy lager , corny white wine, lgiuth metallic hint similar of natty light, or even closer to jacobs best light or something like that- hints of herbs and grass and dull olff malts with hints of sulfur and dms throughout. finish is very dry with slight mineral. It is actually not that hard to drink, and not horrible, but it is still worse than chang or singha. Meh.

jgb9348 (5231) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Clear golden body with a thinnish, fast-dying white head. Aroma of corn, malt & metal. Light-bodied; Assertive corn and cereal flavour with a touch of rice and subtle metal. Aftertaste is relatively mild, only showing some malt and metal, with no real harsh flavours - less bitter than Chang. Overall, a typical Thai lager, but perhaps a bit better than some (Chang), and not as good as Singha. I sampled this 640 mL bottle purchased earlier today at 7-11 in Karon Beach, Phuket, Thailand sampled here on the island on 15-August-2010.

dttk0009 (5) - THAILAND - AUG 12, 2010 does not count
Appearance: Golden and clear with a quickly disappearing, frothy head. Aroma: A little metallic and soapy. Not very pleasant, but typical for a Thai brew. Taste: Horrible. Something like cough medicine and steel. Light body and thin texture. Lots of carbonation but a funky aftertaste that’s sort of stale and moldy. Not worth it.
