1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured clear and golden with a small, frothy white head. Aroma of sweey malt. Lacking much body, flavour of sweet malt extract, fair amount of carbonation with not a lot of aftertaste. Ah well, Laos ticked at any rate.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear yellow with little head or lacing. The aroma is mostly generic cluster hops. The taste is like hop-water. It says on the bottle that it’s gluten free, although I think this sticker might have been put on it by the store I bought it from since it’s not in any pictures I’ve found on the internet. Given this, I’m guessing it’s made mostly with rice, and it tastes like such. It’s drinkable, but not anything noteworthy.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour moi la meilleure lager est-asiatique. Bue partout au Laos et trouvable chez Tang frères France lorsqu’ils l’importaient encore (ce qu’ils ne font plus à ce jour d’après les enseignes de Lognes et Noisiel).

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle poured in a chalice.
A: Extremely pale yellow color. Extremely clear too. One finger white and fluffy head which lasts a bit leaving only few laces around
S: Despite of simple, its smell is quite disappointing. Sweet grains and malts, basically. Not much hops
T: Pretty much like the smell. Very light and malty. Dry and with a not bad light bitter end
M: Very light body with a noticed carbonation
D: Not bad but extremely watery beer. Very "Asian" Lager with notes of rice which does not help too much

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle(s). Pours a clear pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma of malt. Taste is malty (despite being brewed on rice) and a bit floral. Medium bitterness for a pale lager. A bit boring - as many lagers tend to be - but nevertheless very refreshing when drunk in the Laos heat. ;-)

Bottle at a Thai restaurant. Golden color with a small head. Some citrus, grass in the nose. Crisp, light flavor, lemony, grassy. I don’t mind this at all with some spicy Thai food on a hot night.
