12oz bottle part of variety "beers of world" pack.. pours a typical carbinated yellow gold with a familiar head.. the aroma is skunky but the taste however packs more than a run of the mill macro pale lager.. a tarty hint of rice and wheat it does leave a unappealing aftertaste of fermented something??? not great, but I was expecting way worse... technically speaking it exceeds that of other pale lagers.. still lacking a good bite though..tough rate but decent beer

Bottled(330ml). -from Utobeer, Southwark, London.
Pale yellow coloured, small white head, strong rice nose. Low carbonation. The taste is also rice and corn with notes of hops in the finish. Easy drinkable brew.

KnutAlbert (6377) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2007
Bottle from Whole Foods, Kensington, London. Sweet, malty beer, lacking the neccesary dryness to make it a decent beer. That being said, it is better than many lagers sold in Norway!

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2007
Bottle. Clear, pale golden, with a dense, white head. Hops, a little fruityness and some grain in the aroma. The flavor is weak, sweetish and malty, but lacks bitterness. Thin body. A boring beer, thereís nothing technically wrong, itís just boring. (070914)

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 7, 2007
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 havenít 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 isnít 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. Itís not anything special, but uncomplicated, refreshing and quenching.
