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.

Bottle @ a Laotian restaurant. Medium brown pour with a small head. Nose of knackered grain, slightly plasticy. Some cocoa. Flavor is somewhat saccharine. Artificial sweetener. Mild toffee and toasted malt. Medium body, active carb. Not great, but it’s not bad for what it is.

(4) Below average. Remember it as better than the BeerLao pilsner - but that is because there is nothing much to choose from in Lao. A good beer - selection thinking.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This dark Vienna has a nice taste of hard roasted malt, good notes of dark chocolate and a little hint of coffee. It tastes a bit of a sugary sweetness and have little character of a dark mild ale. Hop bitterness is very discreet. It is a successful dark storage leaning close to the Czech types, which obviously has been the inspiration for this stock. Tasty and lovely.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from a local Asian restaurant. Poured a slight clear, dark amber color with a pretty large off-white head. Aroma was sweet malts, light toasted notes - light Vienna lager character. Light toast, caramel. Okay, probably one of the best of these kinds of beers you’ll get at a non-craft Asian restaurant.
