3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A simple uplifting dark beer very suitable for balmy tropical nights as a change from a world of pale Asian lagers. It pours to light tan creamy head which falls away to a light lacing. The nose is one of scorched caramelized coffee bean and quite pleasant. It has a lighter than expected mouth-feel. The foretaste is reminiscent of burnt bread crust and light yeast which falls-off to an a brief after-taste of raisins and oranges.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a light brown color with a decent tan colored head and a nice retention.
The aroma is very weak, hardly picked up, just some basic malty aroma.
The taste ois sweet throughout, quite bland withouth any real finish.
Drinkable but that’s it. No real taste to it.

Caramel color, a little on the dark side. Respectably holds a foamy, dirty white head. Aroma is rye and adjunct grains. Flavor is rye, caramel, corn, dirt, and occasionally metal. Probably made in rusty steel tanks in Laos. This beer is inconsistent, sometimes its good, and other times its offensive. It’s probably pretty nice if you chill the nastiness out of it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 6-07-2010 - This bottled beer has a medium sized very fizzy off-white head with a short retention, transparent orange body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, roasty, sweet, and alcohol. The taste is sweet, malt, some caramel, and dark fruits. The palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. This is a rather blah tasting beer and thus lacks character and no WOW factor. This is a beer that I will not seek out again.

Sampled on my trip to Thailand. A really cool beer for the area, where most brews have terrible flavor. Well made and great for the area.
