JDBaker11058 (1844) - Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2010
Appearance: actually pretty good-looking beer; dark clear amber with a big creamy head that lasts; lots of residual lacing. Aroma: for a darker beer, the nose was pretty peppery, with some pilsner-y notes up front and only a hint of the expected sweet malt. Taste: slightly bitter, spicy hops, a little funky tang on the back of the tongue, then just a bit of sweetness. Finish: long, slightly metallic and medicinal. Notes: Hmm…very nice to look at, and the palate was surprisingly nuanced: smooth and creamy yet good carbonation. Higher alcohol than you’d expect. They are clearly trying. However, the taste was a little to spicy/bitter for a darker lager. I would expect more sweetness. Not bad, but not great either.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2011 Pours a clear dark chestnut brown with fair tan head. Not that great. Astringent. Old hops. A little nutty smelling which was pleasant, but the flavor just is lacking a little. meh.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Had this at a Thai place right across the street from Blind Tiger NYC. Typical dark light beer from an asian place. Just a tick and a good tick seeing that this is from LAOS. Dark brown transparent pour. Taste is thin with carmel and grassy tfinish. Didn’t care too much for this one.

thedm (5557) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 4, 2010
This bottled brew from a beer bar poured a very large sized head of foamy off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent dark copper brown colored body. The mild aroma was malty and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow metallic aftertaste. The thin flavor contained notes of brown malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.
