GuideDogSaint (807) - Xiamen, CHINA - MAY 19, 2015
330ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. After having this many times in Laos I’m finally rating it in China. Not as dark as I remember, pours mid brown with a white head.Aroma of malt with dry biscuit and caramel. Sweet finish.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2008
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.

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.

McGarnigle (579) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2009
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.

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.
