3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a can while in Thailand.
Aroma is sweet with medium light grain and corn notes. A light floral hop aroma. No diacetyl or sulfur but some floral esters.
Pours a very clear pale yellow gold with a medium sized, moderately thick white head with really good retention. Light lacing and no legs.
Flavor has a sweet, pilsner malt graininess and hints of corn. Some floral hop character, light but surprisingly noticeable. Low bitterness compared to the hop flavor.
Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low to no alcohol warmth.
Overall one of the best lagers I have ha in Thailand. It still has all the typical malt characteristics of a light lager, but the hop character is more noticeable than I expected. It is also a clean beer without diacetyl or sulfur.

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
