14/X/13 - 33cl bottle @ home - bottled: 10/II/13 (2013-965) Thanks to Ann D. for the bottle!

Clear pale light orange beer, creamy irregular white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: little fruity, peaches, citrus touch, grains. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: some citrus, bitter hops, fruity, grassy touch, some grains. Aftertaste: soft bitterness, grassy, little sour, lemony, bit watery. Not too bad.

Alright here was a shocker. Sampled in Cambodia tonight with dinner from a can. This beer was actually really good. All mass produced warm climate lagers taste the same. But this one has a really clean aftertaste. Maybe it was the rice. I thoroughly enjoyed and will have again this trip.

Bottle, Bangkok. Better than any of the more common Thai beers. Preferable to Chang, Singha and Leo. However, nothing special. Rice, yeast. Goes down smooth.

Very bland lager beer, but when you have spent 2 months drinking Singha this is an improvement.

Blond beer with quickly diminishing head. Very little flavour. Verging on insipid.

BiereLuc (869) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2013
Bière dorée à effervescence moyenne avec un mince col de mousse blanc. Le nez offre un peu de sucré et de foin trempé. En bouche, nous avons droit à des saveurs propres à une lager blonde des grandes brasseries (Carlsberg). Du sucre, une mince textures céréalières et un peu d’amertume pour clore le portait. Un plus pour la fraîcheur des saveurs; un bémol pour l’originalité et la complexité. Je suis heureux que cette bière soit désormais disponible en importation au Québec, mais j’aurais apprécié avoir quelque chose qui détonne par rapport à ce qu’on offre déjà à la SAQ. Ici, je n’ai pas l’impression qu’on offre une bière sans équivalence.

Douberd (2085) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle 330 ml at home poured into a stemmed glass. ABV 5% Pale golden yellow colour on the body with a good sized white head, thick and soapy, average retention and nice lacing left on the glass. Aroma of malts, grass, adjuncts, soap. Taste begins sweet, malty, nothing too offensive. A tad bitterness on the aftertaste. Thin body, average carbonation, on the high side. Overall nothing special, but a good thirstquencher nevertheless.

Martinus (2744) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2013
Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of rice, yeast, malts, banana, peach, quite fruity. Malty flavour, soy sauce, light hops. Malty finish, vanilla, hint of caramel. Quite nice, clean and refreshing lager.
(from 33cL bottle @ Tim’s place. Thanks for sharing!)

suprchunk (2103) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Light golden colored pour. Big frothy white head. Some lacing left behind in its wake. A slightly light struck aroma at first. And upon second, third and fourth sniff. Taste is malty and lager like. Not the worst lager, that’s for sure. And not too bad overall, minus the lightstruckness of it.

minutemat (1387) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
330ml bottle from Drinker’s Paradise, London. Has an almost artificially sweet, caramel flavour, grassy. Not that bad, but then I can’t imagine drinking a few of these.
