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)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
640ml bottle on Koh Lanta from a minimart (40 Baht):
Light & sweet with some lively adjuncts & grassy hops. Some faint malts as well, a little barely and a touch of skunk towards the end.
Straw coloured with a 1cm, bubbly white head that holds reasonably well.
Bitter adjuncts and some skunk kick things off, followed by a little citrus and some light, lager malts. A bland, mellow taste that is a run-of-the-mill macro lager.
Light bodied & with lively carbonation & a semi-sweet palate. Nothing really out of the ordinary or worthy of note here I’m afraid.
This one wasn’t all that bad a beer for a Thai pale lager. Not as good as Singha or Chang but a lot better than some of the crap out there.

Drank in Thailand too as the cheapest available. Check out 7-11 for this brew, it is clear coloured, easy drinking and comes in 640ml bottles.

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.

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

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Medium coarseish shiny head doesn’t last. Yellow body. Floral apple malts aroma. Dryish mealy strawy taste with bready notes. Mid-bodied. Dry grassy empty aftertaste. It’s not bad, but very bland. (0.33l can, gift.)

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
.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.
