Clear pale brown with a small tan head. Aroma of mild caramel, nuts, noble hops and mild skunk. Taste of noble hops, light toffee and sweet malt. Moderate astringent and sweet finish. Went okay with my Pud See Eew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Filtered brown body with a fizzy white head that quickly collapses. Aroma is a bit cerealy but there is some nice light chocolate and caramel notes. The flavor is actually not half bad. Dry cocoa with the typical cereal notes. The best that I have had from Laos ;-) and one of the better Asian macro lagers that I have ever had.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle.
Appearance: Dark cola color with a effervescent, tan head. The head was gone pretty quickly.

Flavor: Light and simple with some nuttiness, some caramel, and a nice malt sweetness. Overall fairly unoffensive.
Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium mouthfeel and a medium-short finish.
Overall: Nothing I would seek out, but an interesting find at my regular sushi place. Not bad at all!

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Thought this was a Chinese beer until I got home and looked it up. I guess I shouldv’e looked at the bottle a little harder. Pours a clear, pale copper/brown body with a fizzy white head. This aroma was reallly bad IMO but there are some faint caramel malts, but otherwise sour and funky. Flavor isn’t so bad. Semi-sweet, vegetable, malty. Slight hop finish. Thin bodied. Overall not horrible. I’m sure if I was in Laos I’d drink many of these.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Same tinge of carbonation as the regular lager. Root beer color, very slight toasty flavor, initial bitterness and no sign of any sweetness. Good watery drink to wash down spicy food but not much else.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
11.2 ounce bottle. Pours caramel color, minimal head. A bit too much caramel sweetness without balancing roast or bitter hops, but still pretty good. Can’t feel the relatively high ABV.
