XJR (3) - PHILIPPINES - MAY 4, 2013 does not count
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.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark copper brown hue with tan head that settled. Aroma is bready, grain, cereal, toffee, caramel. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet with a clean finish. Overall this beer is ok.

seymour (1830) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Enjoyed at a cool Thai restaurant in Little Five Points, Atlanta, Georgia. Poured from 12oz brown into a shaker glass, a clear copper colour with moderate offwhite foam, a litle lace. To be honest, the menu simply read "Beerlao" so I thought I was ordering just another macro pale lager. I was pleasantly surprised when it poured so dark and exhibited some rich malty aromas and flavours. Caramel, toffee, molasses, sweet but not sticky or cloying, with a measured hoppy balance. Light body, strong carbonation, nice round mouthfeel. It finished drier than I expected, but with some subtle fruity and caramelly aftertastes. Pretty good stuff, especially paired with spicy green curry. I would gladly order it again.

Blairgus (3962) - California, USA - APR 12, 2016
12 Apr 2016, bottle. Dark Amber, clear some steady bubbles. Nose is sweet, caramel syrup. Ned/thin body and moderately fizzy. Sweet, caramel, cherries, sticky sweet. Actually not as bad as I expected. Certainly a sweet Vienna lager but still rather nice.

Chestnut brown with medium head; slightly soapy aroma. On the fizzy side, no heaviness (a plus given the climate) Honey-wheaty taste fruits up later but soon finishes. A refreshing beer, better cool than cold.

jeff789 (1408) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Clear brown with a quickly fading big white head, decent lacing.... Sweet malty aroma, smells sticky, not a hop presence at all... Flavor is not bad at all for what it is, not as sweet as it smells, a small touch of hops, decent flavor... Easy drinking, sweetness cuts the alcohol nicely...

You never expect much from these southeast Asian breweries, but this one isn’t bad. Not an american style dark lager though, more of a European style, not a dunkel though.
