GTAEgeek (1286) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2013
330 mL bottle. Dark brown with a medium, beige, creamy head. Nice honey notes, vanilla, caramel, and dates. Very sweet, and a little sour. Light to medium body, sticky, and a little watery. This is a pretty nice dark lager.

joeneugs (3483) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 20, 2014
12 oz. bottle. It pours a clear amber color with a disappearing off white head. The aroma is rather sweet with some caramel, nuts and corn. The corn stands out unfortunately. Smells a bit overly sweet too. The flavor is not too bad with more caramel and corn. Itís pretty sugary sweet actually. Lighter notes of bread and nuts with hints of sulfery lager yeast. Prickly carbonation. I can see how this would go well with some spicy Lao cuisine, but I donít think I would order this again if I had other options.

Dark lager. Bright but kind of skunky. Copper pour with eggy head. Grainy Metallic finish. Serve as cold as humanly possible.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle, brought back from Lao by TvM and shared at game night. Colour of long-steeped Red Rose tea, mediocre head that vanishes before two minutes pass. Slightly sour grains, weak caramel, metal. Thank you Tyler for Lao tick #2-- I will now wash my mouth out with a beer.

Marduk (2980) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 2, 2014
330ml bottle (thanks Aresh). Deep caramel color. Small size, bubbly yellow head, stays. Minerals, malty, sweetish , caramels, faint sour notes in aroma. Sweet, caramel, hop extract in taste. Faint nutty aftertaste.

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!

olliejobbins (936) - Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
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 (1001) - 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 (2449) - BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2014
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.

KyotoLefty (6715) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2014
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.
