ccex (891) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2012
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. Im glad to have tried it. but probably wont return.

12 oz bottle pour. Dark copper, medium head.malty brown slightly sweet nose. Light malty in the mouth, some good in back.nothing special but a good alternative to light lagers with spicy Thai food.

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle sample at a Southeast Asian alcohol tasting at Nimrods place. Thanks Nimrod. Clear deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, a bit of metal, a bit of caramel and light toastiness. Sweetish caramelly flavor with light toasty notes and a drier finish. Medium-bodied. Pretty drinkable.

Not a bad one. Good flavor with slight roasted notes for the the dark lager. Not a lot of head, and pretty light. Decent brew to drink.

33cl brown bottle pours brownish copper with full tan head and spotty lacing. Im clueless on how this could be a Vienna style beer. Ratebeer confounds at times. The aroma is a little dusty and then offers up modest earthy notes, spicy hop notes, a touch of roasted malts, nuttiness and gravel road. The taste has sweet malt infused nuttiness rolling slowly into a bit of roasted malts, spicy hops and earthiness. Pretty nice stuff.

visionthing (2391) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2012
33cl bottle in Phnom Penh. Quite disappointed with this beer this time. This was my favourite beer the last time I visited Indochina and I remembered it as quite delicious. This time it was just a sweet and malty bland beer with some caramel and just a hint of spices. Quite sweet and sugary. Very little bitterness. I still think it would taste better in Laos - it was probably much fresher in Vientiane. Its still drinkable, but far from a great beer. (2012-04-30)

A watery malted beer. Kind of reminds me of negra modelo or something. Aroma nearly nonexistent, flavor not too much better
