Skinnyviking (7236) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2007
Bottle. Medium high white and fluffy quickly disappearing head. Clear golden body. Barley malt aroma with corn. Hops added to this otherwise relatively sweet beer makes it it just a bit better. Still pretty uninteresting though.

faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUN 16, 2007
Bottle witn fresh beer. Poured in a thin tulip glass. Clear palen golden with a snow white creamy mostly diminishing head leaving a good lacing. Aroma of corn, grass, some hops and malt. Thin mouthfeel. The flavour has corn, some maltiness, grass, bit sweetness and slight hops. The finish is a bit dry with corn and a bit of soap.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2007
Bottle. Average fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Fair lacing. Clear sparkling body with a pale yellow colour. Light hoppy aroma with notes of grass. Hint of cardboard, corn and light sweet malty notes. Light to medium bodied with a lively carbonation and light dry and somewhat thin texture. Light bitter flavour with hint of corn sweetness. Finish was light dry and bitter.

garthicus (2734) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 26, 2007
Just a beer, thats all, the only reason I will remember it is because it is brewed in Laos, no other reason

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 17, 2007
Nondescript straw colored lager. Like so many before it. Fizzy macro-esque head. Gym sock bready flavor and funky/flat finish. Easy drinkin’ but weak in its overall presentation.

Great smell, look and flavor. Beautifuly fizzy over the palate. Ripper beer! Wish i could find this in Oz... ill have to go back to Lao and stock up! Best Asian beer beating out a selection from the land of the rising sun. Nice

Maverick34 (2366) - New York, USA - MAR 3, 2007
Big bottle. Pale golden, not a pleasant aroma. A slight step above the average pale yellow SE Asian lager but not too bad on a hot day with spicy food. And of course the price tag helps, as well as the near-monopoly...

bluevegie (3061) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2007
330ml bottle. Pale golden body with short white head. Unpleasant aroma of diesel then wafts of rice. Taste is ok if you scull it down, especially if you are in Asia but here in WA our macro beers compare better than this.

RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2007
Draught. In Vientiane and Luang Prabang, Laos. Even on hot Lao days this was a poor beer, I don’t like Carlsberg much, but this is worse. Pale yellow, minimal head. Grassy aroma, medium bitterness. Unlike Oakes, this was a beer I was bored of quickly, pleased to get to another country with a wider choice of beer.
