2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can@Best Western Indochine, Hue, Vietnam. Golden beer with more than a hint of amber. The aroma is very mildly dry, and the flavour is bitter with some roastedness. Overall a pretty average lager.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wow – a properly decent beer! Not very gassy – a bit like Cobra – but very mellow, smooth and well balanced. Can taste the hops, and is malty too.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Third beer in Vietnam so far and it’s third worst - haven’t tasted the best yet... like huda. A little less sour aftertaste. Had in a bottle in Hue.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, numerous. Yellow-gold with decent white head retention. Aroma is a tad sulfuric at first but then mellows into earth, grass, and a surprising dose of aromatic hops! Clean, innocuous palate makes it very drinkable. Thin finish. Watery but clean, dry. Goes down really well and became an easy favorite Viet pale later.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden with nice sparkle, thin head. The aroma is grassy with a hint of minty herbalness and light pale malt background. Acceptable bitterness - the only of Hue brewery’s three beers to show any. Grassy notes and clean but faint malts. Finishes relatively dry...relatively. For a macro its tolerable, but you’ll be wishing for a brewpub in Hue.

This is so similar to Huda beer. Maybe a touch sweeter if thats even possible, maybe a little less scrappy too. I dunno, I guess it’s plain enough to be ok. Serve cold.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2006 Bottle in Vietnam. Bit more flavour than your average Vietnamese lager. Lives up to its name at least, in that there is at least some sort of event going on inside this bottle. Herbs and spices and fruits are all invited, and seem to get on pleasantly enough. Full bodied with an ok finish.
