2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Shared 330 ml can at local tasting, brought from Vietnam by my son Steinar. Pale golden colour, white head. Sweetish aroma, fruit, grass and candy. Light bodied as expected, a little malts and hops, fairly clean flavour (no offensive side flavours), but not a beer to remember. Might still do the trick in the Vietnam heat.

Lager pâle de base, sur les céréales et malt, pas grand chose hormis d’être désaltérante. Finale légèrement désagréable à mon goût. Bouteille 33cl achetée chez Tang frères, Lognes, France, bue le 12/07/2015.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
First tried this in a fish market in District 10, Saigon. Went down so quickly it might has well been Evian, but the aroma of the markets mingling with the vegetal, tinny and bready aroma didn’t sit too well, so I thought I’d order a few more and maybe a big ol’ plate of fried Elephant Fish. The aroma of this was sometimes clean, sometimes oxidised depending on where it was purchased. In the larger restaurants it had a pleasant lemongrass and toasted white bread nose. From street stalls it might well have been left out in the sun for a month. When poured it is a brilliant yellow gold with high carbonation and a well-fuelled, sudsy white crown. Fizzy and light on the palate with a swiftly fading sweetness upfront and peppery, light hop finish. Swallow is clean and crisp but there is a lingering wort-like sweetness. Pleasant given its source, but just another SE Asian lager to tick off the box. (45cL, Saigon, Vietnam)
