My buddy brought this can back from Vietnam as a tasting gift. This is a local traditional beer of over 100 years. Taste is better than your average lager. It is better tasting than expected. Great beer for a warm summer day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ALLOVATE (2625) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2015
Mmmm, the walkabout Hanoi with a can resembling Malaysian Red Bull beer that did the job. Grassy nose with a cereal malt note and toasted rice in there. Light gold with no head retention but endless carbonation. Gassy and biting on the palate so shake, shake, swirl, shake goes the can/glass. Dry at the end but upfront it has a biscuity, rock cake character. Spicy with a peppercorn finish. Slight soapiness, slight tinniness but this is forgivable. Lean body and soft in flavour. Actually drinks better in the cold rains of Hanoi than the Summer humidity. Average!! (33cL, Hanoi, Vietnam)

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2015
[Can] Light yellow pour with a fizzy head on top. Wet grass and metallic notes in the aroma. Flavors of adjuncts, corn syrup, cardboard and straw. Highly carbonated. Tasting notes from 8/2014.

alex_leit (497) - Minsk, BELARUS - FEB 14, 2015
Can. Clean and clear golden beer with minimal head. Smells quite familiar to many light lagers from around the world. Watery, light body, drinkably, malty.

massingasetta (419) - Mnchen, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2014
This beer hardly deserves the name - even when taking international lagers as a comparison. Very little foam and aroma, close to no malt or hop taste. This beer is one to forget.

tomer (2163) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 30, 2014
At a tasting, thanks Alexei, small creamy head, lightish yellow color, aroma of cooked corn and aroma with some paper, flavour of paper, stale bread, strange sweetness and bitterness. Really bad.

olliejobbins (1324) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Had loads of 330ml cans of this in northern Vietnam. Pours clear gold with lively head. Aroma is weak malts and grass. Taste isnt bad at all when cold. Not a bad mass produced lager i thought.

Piwo nadzwyczaj dziwne - aromatu zero, wygląd nadrabia kolorem bo piany nic ale w smaku to juz kurna zagadka bogw Vietkongu - no jakiś słd jest bo o chmielu mowy nie ma ale wstecznie da sie odczuć plastik, mokrą szmate do podłogi no a gdy spojrzałem na wykaz wad piwa okazało się że są to nuty toniku (!) co nawet bardziej jak dla mnie pod wodę kolońską podchodzi. Po każdym łyku panoszy się w ustach odczucie jakby wąchało sie papier książki prosto z drukarni. Niby lager ale dziwny. Niemniej jednak było to pierwsze piwo z niepiwnego regionu świata ;)
