Beerbarella (343) - - DEC 5, 2012
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.

CPH2200 (303) - DENMARK - AUG 5, 2013
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.

Aroma: Malt, pilsener Appearance: brown, clear, off white head, caramel colour Taste: Typical pilsener, no strong taste, kinda nice for a thai beer

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2008
From a twelve ounce bottle - Pours a clear brownish red. Below average carbonation, and lacing. Smells of mild malts and mild hops…maybe some rice or other adjuncts? First sip is surprisingly lighter than expected, some mild bitterness. Weak malt backbone. On a whole not very good but better than their lager

330 ml bottles all over Laos. Whoever designated this a pale lager, Imperial or otherwise, was wearing sunglasses and drinking a different beer. This is somewhere dark Dunkel-ish, and while not great is at least different for South East Asia. Caramel but not enough, stuck in nomansland between soft and roasty, not big on malt and with no sound hop statement. But still different for South East Asia.

bradlyc77 (226) - Sebastopol, California, USA - MAY 7, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2009 Pours brown cola color and transparent. Better than regular Beer Lao with some caramel, chocolate, roasted malt, and dark/rye bread. Hardly a great schwartzbier, but an excellent alternative to the abundance of light lagers in Asia.

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.

South-East Asia is not a fantastic place for beer, although there are some pretty good ones. This Lao beer is one of them. Dark, smooth. A nice white head, good roasted flavours and some chocolate / caramel flavours.

rw4244 (132) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2006
Bottle, 33cl. Pours a rich, dark amber with a muddy white head of fairly large bubbles. Strong, rich malty and nutty aroma, with notes of grain, chocolate and alcohol. The taste is extremely nutty, leading to a very chewy palate. Notes of coffee with the initial sip, chocolate and grain definitely present. The aftertaste lasts - a nutty/alcoholic bitterness, reflecting the strength of this beer. As mentioned, the palate is chewy and thick in the mouth (you almost want to bite into it...). This may look like a dark lager, but drinks much more like a tropical stout. Amid the hordes of poor Asian lagers this rarely seen brew really stood out to me. Though it may not go down as easily as a beer lao on a hot day, I recommend it.
