2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
11.2 ounce bottle. Pours caramel color, minimal head. A bit too much caramel sweetness without balancing roast or bitter hops, but still pretty good. Can’t feel the relatively high ABV.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Thought this was a Chinese beer until I got home and looked it up. I guess I shouldv’e looked at the bottle a little harder. Pours a clear, pale copper/brown body with a fizzy white head. This aroma was reallly bad IMO but there are some faint caramel malts, but otherwise sour and funky. Flavor isn’t so bad. Semi-sweet, vegetable, malty. Slight hop finish. Thin bodied. Overall not horrible. I’m sure if I was in Laos I’d drink many of these.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
From an expired bottle, pours a nice orange red color with a nice off white head. Aroma of caramel malts and candy. Flavors of caramel malts, candy and straw. Light body, but nice and refreshing taste. Not bad for a asian.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Medium white head. Sparkling clear dark brown colour. Uniquely sweet honey rice aroma and something I cannot really fathom. Wonderfully caramelly roasty taste with a lasting palate. A true gem.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz. bottle. Really not half bad compared to what I was expecting. More of an amber lager than a dark one, but still fairly refreshing and at least not offensive. I could drink this.

330 ml bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a small white head. Roasty caramel and rice aroma. Tastes of rice and honey, but it is not sweet and there is a very mild bitterness to it. Mild palate with a pleasant bitterness.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 6.5% abv. The first dark beer I found in Thailand after 14 days surrounded by watery pale lagers. Alcohol is noticeable, sweet notes of syrup. Nothing special but one of the better beers you will find in Thailand.
