Delt boks på RBHD treff hos meg november 2015. Klar lys gyllen kropp med hvit film. Sur utvannet honning i nesa. Syrlig våt papp i smaken med litt besk ettersmak.

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.

0,33 boks på RBHD-samling hos Asle Bjørn: klar, lys gylden med kort hvitt skum. Litt aroma av mais og kokte grønnsaker. Smaken minner litt om daff sitronbrus.

Poured a clear straw to gold with a white head. Aroma was of a ton of slunk. Flavor similar, finishes with a sweet grainy character.

bewyder (286) - FRANCE - JUL 13, 2015
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.

ALLOVATE (2719) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2015
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)

Can from a friend that brought it from Vietnam. Decent lager, bit sweet so not completely my taste.
