330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. Sweet rice beer with apple notes. Walks a fine line between offensive and cute. The sweetness is soft, and gives a light, playful note to what is actually quite an appalling brew. Drinking this at home while messing about on the internet I can pick out the flaws - but knocking back a few with the locals in a bar in Laos I should imagine this would taste just fine.

Bottle. Pale golden beer with a light head. The aroma is diesel fuel dry and the flavour is quite syrupy sweet and overly dry. Overall a poor beer.

I spent 3 weeks in Laos in 2003, so I drunk alot of this - always from the bottle. At the time it reminded me a lot of Stella Artois, all be it lighter, less hoppy and not so carbonated. So just like any mass-brewed larger really..... That only tells half the story. Drinking the local brew insitue, be it a lambic in Brussels, a White beer in Berlin or a bland lager in Laos is part of the fun of travel. I think. Erm. Thats it.

Best beer in Asia. Best when consumed in Asia. Donít try it back at home. You will be disappointed, (or pleasantly surprised).

leaparsons (8303) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2006
Bottle. Pale gold with a small head. Aromas are grain with some buttery notes. Grassy and metallic hops. Flavours are gritty grain with dry, metallic notes towards the finish. Very watery.

[Tasted locally in Thailand.] Had some ?expectations?, but I donít know why. A little hoppyness, otherwise nothing to write about.

Can. Another lager to drink in Cambodia. This is not good but not bad either but way to thin for my taste. In my opinion is Angkor Beer a better lager.

Bottle. A clear yellow color with a white head. An aromatic straw mustiness. Slightly sweet but typical for the style. Rating from notes. Thanks to Nuffield for this one.

From a 330 ml. brown bottle with a packaging date on the front label. Poured a clear lager golden with a small foamy head that quickly settled into a thin lacing. Aromas of lemon grass and sweet grain malts, pretty simple. Good carbonation with a steady stream of bubbles rising from the bottom of pint glass, and a crisp, smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel. For me, a bit strange tasting, sweet grainy malts with a slight metallic edge, a lemon grassiness hoppiness that mingles with a sugary maltiness, and a lemon and grainy metallic finish with the metallic flavor lingering a tad too long. Iíve read about this lager and now I have try it, o.k. drinkability, I will try again with southeast asian food sometime, but this will not be a regular purchase for me.

rw4244 (132) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2006
Bottle, 66cl. This beer poured a pale gold, with a pure white head which didnít really linger. It had a standard aroma of rice and hops, particularly rice, though this only revealed itself when warmer. The taste was very clean - rice and hops, really quite malty, something which remained in the aftertaste accompanying a slight bitterness. The palate wasnít as watery as most Asian lagers. This beer is highly prized in Asia, and its hype far exceeds its quality, perhaps because its the only beer you can get easily in Laos. It does go down extremely well on a hot day though and there is nothing offensive in there...
