Crisp, slightly bitter, high carbonation, very light bodied, not much else. Good to drink alone since any flavor of food would overpower the beer.

Takk til Fredrik som har skaffet meg et "nytt" land. 0,33 boks delt med Ovesen ombord på Fridtjofen juli-14: flott hvitt, men kort skum. Ufrisk aroma og smak. Mild bitterhet i ettersmaken. Synd at de ikke har greid å lage noe bedre med de ingrediensene de skryter av (vann fra Himalaya, Hallertauer humle, tysk gjær, fransk malt og lokal ris - kanskje de har brukt alt for mye ris).

Holmen2 (702) - NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
Clear pale straw colour. Quickly disappearing white head. Sweetness and 7-UP in taste. Waterish and a bit unfresh.

AdiBeer (931) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Aroma: light grain malts. Appearance: clear gold, medium frothy white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: malty but bitters continue, watery. Overall: boring Lager. Bottle at Busaba Eatthai, St. James.

Calisky (553) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUL 25, 2014
Couleur dorée claire, petite mousse blanche. Nez leger malté, note céréales. Gout malté et notes de riz, finalement pas trop mal!

radagast83 (4445) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle. This is along the lines of other similar Asian pale lagers. Not totally awful. Light sweet lager notes. Pretty much only worth consuming if it’s the only ethnic beer at a South-East Asian restaurant.

Probably one of the better South East Asian lagers on the market, being slightly less one dimensional than others I have tried.

Iphonephan (3066) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2014
From a 12 oz bottle at a Thai restaurant in Falls Church, VA. Pours a light gold with an off white head. Feint biscuit nose. Light bodied. High carbonation. Crisp clean finish.

massingasetta (177) - München, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2014
Farbe ist goldenen, Schaumkrone eher eine Humornote. Geruch ist vielseitig - süsslich, hopfig-malzig. Antrunk ist gemischt, bitter trifft auf ein hintergründige Süsse. Im Körper wird es blumig und Honiggeschmack kommt auf. Man erwartet nicht diesen Regenbogen an Geschmäcker von ein Bier aus Laos. Fazit: Interessantes Bier, nicht nur weil es aus Laos stammt.

Having a hard time putting my finger in the taste. Some sweetness with a bitter yet clean finish. Soapy, popcorn, powdered sugar, with some similarities to Icehouse. Somehow this crazy taste isn’t bad though.
