Bottle. Yellowish colour, dull aroma, watery flavourless beer with hint of that skunky mess found in hot country lagers.

ALLOVATE (2591) - 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)

Standar lager with not so much to offer. The only think I take it in the holiday of Vietnam, so it was pleasant for that.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2015
[Bottle] Light yellow in color with a fizzy white head on top. Sweet pale malt nose mixes in with some vegetal notes. Light skunked flavor. Pale malts, adjunct and light hops in the flavor. Highly carbonated. Sweet finish is somewhat unpleasant. Tasting notes from 8/2014.

AdiBeer (1974) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
Aroma: grain, bread. Appearance: clear gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: malty sweets coming up, yet remains mainly bitter. Overall: boring Pale Lager, but does its job in the hot Vietnamese weather. Bottle from random corner shop, HCMC.

olliejobbins (1321) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2014
330ml can in hoi an. Pours clear light yellow with small white foamy head. Aroma is metallic and corny. Taste is tart with a little barley but bearable when very cold. Some of the other lagers in Vietnam are better.
