330ml bottle - Thanks Aresh!
On pouring, quite a bit of haminess, but in the glass itís just a bland dark lager, probably only worth 3. Actually, only 2, as itís a bit like minerally water. Looks a nice rich red, small off-white head. Taste is a horror, nasty minerals. Finish is bitter and minerally, drying. Actually this is pretty nasty, itís just in the horror zone. I had hoped this would be a palate cleanser, but itís horribly acidic!

Bottles in Laos in the past. Most recently a bottle in Bangkok restaurant. Pours dark reddish brown. Clear. No head. Aroma is malts and toffee. Smooth malty taste. Barley and maybe even some yeast. Quite good but watery.

Salmoniform (1268) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark copper brown hue with tan head that settled. Aroma is bready, grain, cereal, toffee, caramel. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet with a clean finish. Overall this beer is ok.

Alengrin (3861) - BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2015 Tropical Vienna lager with stable, sticky, off-white head and clear copper colour. Sweetish caramel aroma, popcorn, cooked rice, iron, some grassy hops. Simple taste of caramel sweetish malts, sourish rice touch, bit metallic, very low hop bitterness in the finish. A bit bland but interesting nonetheless.

Bottle at a Thai restaurant. Brown amber with a fine head. Nose of caramel and grass, rather faint. Light, grassy flavor, caramel. Crisp tropical feel.

South-East Asia is not a fantastic place for beer, although there are some pretty good ones. This Lao beer is one of them. Dark, smooth. A nice white head, good roasted flavours and some chocolate / caramel flavours.

An interesting - but strong - beer. To my mind its a very pleasant "burnt malt" taste. Dark brown verging on black with little head, but a very full flavour. Body is more largerish, but plenty of punch. LBC is a 50% state owned 50% Carlsberg jv.

mjg74 (2910) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottled from Grocery Outlet. Malty and somewhat sweet up front. A bit of roastiness in the finish. Maybe a little watery at times, but still a pretty clean beer with a decent amount of flavor.

PorterPounder (6711) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Atlanta, Ga. - Total Wine - Perimeter - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a dark chestnut brown with a decently thick off-white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma has a hint of dates, some molasses. not off-putting. Some dates, a touch of bubble gum, hints of chocolate in the flavor, some nuttiness in the back end. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Much better than expected.
