The aroma is a little strange but not offensive. It is basically sweet malt with a touch of grassy hops. It has something else I just can’t identify. The appearance is pale gold with an average head for the style. The flavor is malty with a bit of bitter hops and a twang. The palate is thin but OK for the style. Overall it’s not that bad.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2010 Bottle at Peculier Pub with Pwn3d. This lager was actually good. I would have this again if the other options were slim. Aroma is a little weird spice, but the flavor is not offensive - which is half the battle with pale lagers.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Sampled at Peculier Pub w/ Jredmond on May 7th, ’09. Had this right after Hite, which is my favorite Asian lager. This reminded me of 33. Some spiciness, overall nothing offensive and drinkable. Had a lighly funky nose. Surprisingly good lager. Cool label. I would drink this again.

This stuff is essentially water. Light golden in color, not much malt or hops. Nothing special here.

Honey and cereal grains on the nose, smells very sweet. Pours clear light yellow blonde with a thin watery head. Cereal grains, with traces of honey with mild hints of spicy hops (barely detectable though).

Bottle brown, 330 ml
Appearance: Pours very pale yellow almost yellowish to greenish like atomic waste, really lame colour, not clear body, some sediments floating in the body texture, carbonation is visually weak to mederate, though head is quite nice, snowy white, quite frothy, leaving nice lacing, slowly decreasing from moderate to small.
Aroma: Slightly chalky but mainly nice with milk or a water after boiling steam rice, generally weak, sl;ightly mineral, some hidden notes of barley malt of the French origin and very weak German hoppyness, not skunky what is the most important here.
Flavour: Interesting non typical for European regular Lagers taste, spicy, slightly tart and kind of dry, notes of lemon, gentle notes of citric accid, some rice and quite pure but very weak and only partial note of barley malt, nice bitterness at the back of the tongue, finish duration is short to medium with gentle lingering bitterness and saltyness at the back of the tongue.
Palate: Bodu is light, texture is wattery, carbonation on palate is quite lively, finish feel is gently spicy, gently metalic, clean and quite neutral.

Light gold. Very thin head. Sweet grainy scent with a hint of vegetable. Aggressive strong rough first sip./ get used to it. Still aggressive. Rough edges. Some sweetnewss in the middle and a sour rough finish. I could get used to it if I was in-country for a bit.

Laos liegt übrigens zwischen china,vietnam, kambodscha und thailand. hat 5,53 mio einwohner und gibt nur 2,1% seines bip für verteidigung aus (29100 mann starkes heer - zum vergleich: nordkorea gibt 25 % des bip für 1 mio soldaten (bei 22,5 mio bevölkerung aus)) vientiane ist die hauptstadt von laos mit 660000 einwohnern. das bier kommt kräftig golden daher, schaum ist mittelfein, aber hält nicht besonders lange. recht perlig. geruch ist hopfig, einen hauch säuerlich, insgesamt nicht sehr ausgeprägt. antrunk würzig-süßlich. hopfenbetont, aber nicht bitter. dazu malzige note. die mitte wird deutlich süßer. abgang süßlich, aber leichte herbe ist auch da. ungewöhnlicher antrunk, danach lässt es leider nach. geschmacklich nicht leicht einzuordnen. zwischen pils und export, aufgrund der eher süßen tendenz sag ich mal: export. flasche hat ne komische form. goldenes alu um den hals, etikett weiß mit goldenem rand. darin grüne schrift vor orange. kenne den laotischen geschmack nicht so, nach unseren maßstäben sowohl graphisch als auch farblich misslungen. fazit: harmloser exot - kann man trinken, muss man nicht.

Bottle in Amsterdam. Golden body, quick-dissapearing head. Malty and corny nose. Sweet and corny flavour. An okay lager.
