Bottle. Light golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel with faint - light notes of vegetable/herbal hoppyness. Body is light, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish - sweetish flavor, light caramel and light cardboard with faint hoppyness. Finish is short, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, light caramel and cardbord, light metal, faint - light notes of vegetable/herbal hoppyness. Light-bodied lager with caramel and faint hoppyness. Really nothing special.

My fourth time in Laos and the first time I’ve actually found this. 330ml bottle bought from a supermarket in Pakse. Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma of malt and cardboard. Sweet taste with some grain. More taste than regular Beer Lao just not sure if it’s a good thing.

(3) Not worth buying. A slightly better version of the regular pilsner. Fun to drink in Lao - I would be sad to have it back home when you can get darker beers.

Can at world expo. Aroma caramel grain. Tastes like a more fully and sweeter. Slight boozy. I love you beerlao.

Bottle. Thanks to KL. Grainy nose, very light sweet fruit, fairly clean. Very pale yellow straw color. Moderate grainy initial, some sweet malt lightened up with rice, and a light rising of hops in mid and final. Thin-medium body. Okay. Grain abounds, along with the rice notes.

KyotoLefty (8431) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle brought back direct from the brewery by my wife. Drank on the patio on a 32 degree C. day in Kyoto. Light malt nose with a bit of citrus, herbal hops. Not bad. Rather bright golden color, low head. Reasonably nice malt flavor, nothing off, citrus, grass. Light and crisp. Good hot weather beer. Not so interesting, but drinkable and nice. Does the trick that it aims to do.

640 ml bottles at a couple of places in Laos. Oh dear. I thought the first bottle was a dud but sadly it wasn’t. Not a patch on the regular Beerlao Lager Beer. Tastes like it saw Namkhong (the Heineken pitch) and thought, hey, you can make a less tasty beer and get more money. Same old same old, international pretty stuff.

640 ml fles. Vanavond gedronken in een goedkoop restaurantje in Vientiane, de eerste keer trouwens dat ik de gold ben tegengekomen in twee weken Laos. Schijnbaar wat exclusiever dan de standaard beerlao, in ieder geval wel iets duurder. Pilskleurig met een snel verdwijnende kraag. Weinig geur en eigenlijk ook weinig smaak, wat zoetig met heel weinig bitter. Ik vind de standaard beerlao lekkerder.

You could expect something better than regular Beerlao, but it’s not. Anyhow, not bad at all.
