deanso (8476) - the Hague, - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle at a hotel in Hoi An. Thick white head. Clear golden pour. Odd aftertaste. Not great at all. Worth drinking for the rating only.

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Clear gold with sticky head. Smells of grass and vegetables. Taste is similar, and a little eggy. Not great at all.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 7, 2012
on tap in hanoi via a jug. ended up drinking a few of these, pale apple juice appearance, next to no fizz; aroma of plain flour and stale lemonade; neutral flavours, rice bubbles; not crisp buy clean enough to be refreshing

Really pale on sight, and smells weird, but in the end... it worths the while

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Pale gold. White fizzy head. Decent head retention. First thing I notice next is the slick oily palate. Aroma is innocuous, sweet cereal malt. No depth of character. Slightly metallic. Flavors are buttery but not undrinkably so. Cereal malts are nice and finishes with a sweet fruity touch.

Oakes (15358) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2009
Pale yellow. Slightly apple nose. The palate is malt-accented with vaguely appley taste. The body is very soft, maybe a hint of diacetyl. The finish approaches tartness. Decent balance for bia hoi, but a bit more carbonation would help it out.

TBone (15946) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2009
Draught@street restaurant in the Old Quarter of Hanoi. Clear pale yellow color, good white head. Papery malty, but same time a bit fruity aroma. Flavor is green apples, corn malts. Thin mouthfeel. Fizzy. One of the most interesting environments to rate a beer!

omhper (23017) - Tyres, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2008 Draugh at the corner of Ma May and Luong Ngoc Quyen, Hanoi. Clear pale golden, minimal head. Vague grassy nose. Medium sweet with clean mouthfeel and light body. Very simple despite its fresh bready malt character. Finishes with low bitterness.
