This good looking dark brown beer is kinda sweet. It is one of the most unique lagers I've tasted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Less distributed than the normal beerlao that you see in about 100 retail outlets in every street in every town. Pours a light clear brown with a tight white head. I’d say it’s more like a vienna than a schwarzbier... but anyways. Slightly stale aroma, some light toast, caramel and dried apricots. The mouthful is a bit lifeless and plain. The alcohol shows a bit without contributing much to the body, instead giving a vineous note. Its moderately carbonated. Flavour has a touch of sweetness, caramel candy and a hint of bitterness. Maybe a touch salty too. The beer as a whole is as lifeless as an easter egg, but sitting in a unheated restaurant on a near freezing night in Phonsovan... its as close as you’ll get to the warmness of the imperial stout that you want so badly.

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

Picked it up in a grocery store in Bangkok. Pours brown with a foamy white head that stays; copious lacing. Smells like standard lager. Taste is a touch carmel-like. Fairly thin, decent carbonation. Okay beer. I wouldn’t turn one down on a hot day.

Moravius (707) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2015
Flasche (33 cl) vom Asia-Mekong-Supermarkt, Berlin. - Rotbraun, klar; wenig Schaum. - Nase schwach dunkelmalzig, matt karamelsüß, leicht muffig. - Antrunk mild dunkelmalzig mit mildem Kaffee und leicht gemüseartiger Herbe. Milde Karamelsüße, zart säuerlich abgeschmeckt. Durchschnittlich rezent, schlank. Mäßig hopfenbitterer, leicht erdiger Abgang. - Für ein „Reisbier“ gar nicht schlecht. An die Gemüsenoten gewöhnt man sich, danach ist es angenehm und sogar süffig. In deutschen Supermärkten stehen viele dunkle Biere, die deutlich schlechter schmecken.

Pours a very nice deep red brown with a large tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel and light fruit. Flavor of light roasted malts, light chocolate, and tea. Not good, but also not too bad.
