Maybe a little bit better than most SE asian pale lagers. More bitterness. Really like the can design too.

Bottle. Just another lager very much alike the ususal Carlsberg lager. Refreshing in the hot Laos climate but nothing special.

Bottle from the LWC Drinks stand at the Good Food Show at Birmingham NEC. Fizzy gold skanky thin industrial crap that tastes like cardboard that some incontinent beast of the night has pissed on. There might be a hint of lemon but I think I’m being generous there. Overall, it’s absolutely dreadful.

16 oz. can. It pours a very clear light golden color with a disappearing white head. The aroma is typical rice and corn with hints of dough and sweet cider. The flavor has more clean cidery notes, corn, rice, dough and light florals in the finish. Nothing offensive here, just typical pale lager. Maybe slightly above average.

Bottle - Pours clear, pale yellow with a typical macro head. Sweet malt aroma. Taste has some thirst quenching bitterness, but not nice overall.

Bue en bouteille. Moi qui connais un laotien et bien c'est un peu à son image. Aucun palais. Hein Ki Ly :)

Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie, dégottée par Charlie, couleur blonde grosse effervescence, mousse éparsse, goût classique de la Pale Lager, arrière goût de grain aucun intérêt !

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.

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).
