Travlr (10000) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2009
UPDATED: APR 11, 2010 The best Laotian beer I have ever tasted. of course, also the ONLY one. A thin, dark, watery beer with barely perceptible hops. No need to search for more Laotian beer.

Bov (9424) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 1, 2012
courtesy of Philipp and Thomas - pours a clear brown beer under a solid and long lasting pale beige foam; very buttery aroma with notes of caramel and cola; sweet and medium-bodied; initially velvety mouthfeel but with a late earthy tartness; dry aftertaste of butterscotch and vegetables - cloying and unpleasant

daknole (9042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle from Case and Keg. Brown pour very thin white head. Aroma is malty, sweet, honey and grain. Flavor is overly malty and too sweet. slight bitter finish, but not much. Meh.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2008
Bottle courtesy of beastiefan2k. Amber coloured pour with a smell that can only be described as "macro". Pale malt with a touch of light nuttiness. Lightly honeyish. It’s drinkable, but it’s not good.

GT2 (8332) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 27, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2010 Beerlao Dark is near and dear to my heart. Too bad it is impossible to find in the states. 330 mL bottle (the only thing it comes in as far as I know). Pours a clear, dark red with a very thin off-white head. Okay lacing. Aroma is slightly skunked with some lighted roasted malt, honey, and caramel. Very unpredictable and can range from a skunked soy sauce to a great, chocolatey dark beer. Very smooth and light on the palate. Lots of rice in the background and a bit of balancing hops. Alcohol is not entirely masked but is not warming. Overall, the best beer you will find in SE Asia.
