fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 11, 2009
bottle, pours pale gold with a medium white head. Aroma is very grainy, pale malts and corn with some hay. Sweet corn and pale malt flavor, thin bitterness in a clean finish. Boring, but drinkable.

Aquilo (623) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Bottle in Phnom Penh a couple months ago. I just found my rating on a scrap piece of paper, so here it is. Straw yellow with a thick creamy head. Faint aroma of malt, maybe yeast. Flavor is soda crackers and lemon, with some other elusive fruitiness. Refreshing finish, a bit astringent. Overall, this isn’t bad at all.

(bottle - 330 ml) Clear gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma is bitter and dry with some stale grass, corn, and dry hops. Flavor is sweet and dry at the beginning with a slightly sour twinge near the middle. Flavor disappears quickly and leaves the mildest of aftertastes.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2009
From Belmont Station of Portland, OR. Poured the regulation clear, medium gold colour with a creamy white head. Aroma and flavour were quite interesting, not in an overly good way, being not very beer-like. Mouthfeel was thin, and I was treated to a metallic finish.

beerwrecker (1) - USA - AUG 25, 2009 does not count
I define Beer Lao as a light carmel brew with a sweet malt, and flavour rice grain that when poured gives off a foams that delivers a aroma of wheat, rice grain, and sweet malt that qickly disspate into the air, enriching it’s surrounding and adding a crisp to your taste buds. Provided beer lao comes in a soft amber bottle that’s ambient to any environment. Enjoy !

Crisp, slightly bitter, high carbonation, very light bodied, not much else. Good to drink alone since any flavor of food would overpower the beer.

TheBeerGod (6010) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Bottle. Soft amber pour with a tall foamy white head. Aroma is grassy with grains, sweet malt, and soft caramel. Taste is surprisingly decent! Lots of grains, rice, sweet malt, some light corn syrup, light grass and light cardboard. Body is light-medium with an above average carbonation - bubbly, but not overdone. Ends a bit sweeter with more rice and malt, light caramel, and grassy notes. Very drinkable!

rosenbergh (10399) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2009
330 ml bottle. From Germany. Pale golden colour with small white head. Aroma is hay, malt, rice and some alcohol. Sweet flavour with rice, weak hoppy bitterness and some alcohol. Nothing special except maybe the origin.

HughConway (830) - Washington, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Standard big bottle bought in Laos. Good clear lager, pairs incredibly well with Laotian food, dirt cheap. Wouldn’t bother consuming outside of Laos.

thooper41 (556) - BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2009
330mL bottle: Apperance is golden brown with slow fading white head, aroma of pale malt, flavor is very crisp with good malt profile and overall a pretty good pale lager.
