Much better than the local Indochinese lagers, this is still a poor beer. Too watery, with hardly any aroma. The "black beer" taste is over diluted.

Poured dark brown with a smallish head. Sweet malts. This is type of cheap beer I like mix with a cheap corn lager to give it some taste when there is nothing else available like in Latin America and parts of Asia.

This good looking dark brown beer is kinda sweet. It is one of the most unique lagers I've tasted.

The head is medium the color dark brown. It smells darkmalty, grassy, a bit alcoholic. Taste is mild, darkmalty, malty-aromatic a little bit alcoholic-raisin. Mild but not bad. 10/11/11/11/12/11

Dark larger with a bit more flavor than the regular beer Lao. OK for something different in Lao, but that is about it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark copper colour with a tan head. Moderate sweet caramel aroma. Mostly a one dimensional caramel malty flavour. But absolutely ok and drinkable.
[Bottle. Trade with Grima. Thanks a lot!]

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours dark copper with a slight fizzy beige head. Aroma is noble hop with some underlying lightly roast malt. Med minus body. Flavor is slightly sweet, has just a little grassiness, and has significant roast malt. There also seems to be some rather unique flavor - but maybe that’s part of the hop bill. Relatively light, fairly tasty. Head and shoulders above the typical pale lagers that seem to abound in the hotter climes.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle pours a dark amber color with a small off-white head and some lacing. Smells skunky, Aroma has lots of grains, alcohol, and some grass. Tastes like a sweet lager with a fairly clean dry finish. Body is medium to light. Mouthfeel is slightly oily. Goes well with spicy food. Nothing to rave about, but not too disappointing either. I’m glad to have tried it. but probably won’t return.
