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...

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.

Draught. In Vientiane and Luang Prabang, Laos. Even on hot Lao days this was a poor beer, I donít 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.

From a bottle: Light golden colour... hardly any head. Little aroma, light palate Hardly any carbonation. No bitter notes, no malt notes. One of those things you want to drink when your laying out in the sun. Not freezing your ass of in Canada during January.

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 (8606) - 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.
