640ml bottle, Tampopo restaurant in Leeds. Pours a clear light gold with strong carbonation. The rice is evident on the aroma but the taste is mellow with hints of sake. Good palate - very smooth with a refreshing finish. Better than most lagers from the region.

OK...my memories may have been clouded but I haven’t had this since a Peace Corps Volunteer in Thailand. Much better than sister beer Singha - much more French. Good stuff to sip in Downtown Vientiane.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2007 I liked this one better than most of the other lagers I tried during my trip to Southeast Asia in summer of 07. Mainly so because it is so damn refreshing to drink, with a clean finish. This brew isn’t tainted with stale metallic flavor as most other beers from the region are, easy to enjoy while relaxing on a hammock along the Mekong River. Hey, its better than Bud.

Thanks Ungstup. Straw with an OK head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw and the carbonation is rather high. The flavour is light with some malt and hops and the bitterness is OK for this beer. It’s not anything special, but uncomplicated, refreshing and quenching.

Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is grains, alcohol and some hints of malts and hops. Flavour is very clean of malts, hops and some slight notes of rice. Also has some slight hoppy bitter notes. A slight sting of alcohol also found in the flavour. Positive surprise from this beer.

Bottle, all over Laos. Beerlao is the best mass-produced beer in South-East Asia, which is to say, it’s a half decent beer in a region where the heat leads people to favour fizz over flavour. Pours slightly cloudy with a fluffy head. Nice clean wheatbeer-honey flavour when very cold; warmed up, it’s less enticing.

Wohoo 900. Pours a clear light yellow with a large white head. Smells hoppy and grassy. Slightly bitter with some straw aromas. Lightly grassy with herbal hints. Short dry finish. THX Theis.
