UXO (1524) - CANADA - SEP 23, 2016
Appearance: clear straw with one finger of medium white head diminishing rapidly a thin cap, moderate lacing. (3/5) Aroma: corn syrup, rice, grass. (4/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, mild bitter. (3/10) Medium-light body, lively to moderate carbonation, off-dry slightly sticky finish. (2/5) Maybe not quite “terrible,” but not far off it. Naw, let’s go with “terrible.” A sickly sweet adjunct mess. Drank half, sink poured the rest. Life’s too short to waste on beer like this.(8/20)

dj (574) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2016
Bottle, 330ml, from a 7-11 in Bangkok. Straw colour with a large white head. Aroma of musty hops. Flavour is sweet, slightly hoppy, some smooth malt and rice notes in the finish. Moderate carbonation. This actually is very drinkable.

caribou43 (648) - Chavannes-prčs-Renens, SWITZERLAND - SEP 8, 2016
After India, I was travelling in Lao. In my opinion, this beer is a bit better than the Kingfischer, of couse, it is just a personal opinion. It is a typical product from macrobrewery, drinkable, particulary with the hot weather that you find there. The body is yellow and gold, thin and white foam, regular carbonation, the taste is malty, some hop, watery, simple.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2016 Small bottle in Vientiane, Laos. Pours a pale golden yellow. One finger white head that lingers. Aroma of hops and rice. Some sweet citrus taste with bitter hops and yeast. Medium body. Light and refreshing on a hot day. Unremarkable with a slight bitter aftertaste.

PanMarek (267) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2016
Sweet hop/malt nose. Pours light golden with thick white foam. Crisp, active carbonation with medium body. Slight skunk that the hoppiness balances out. Another good beer for the heat and humidity.
