3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Foamy, slightly dirty looking head, but don’t let that put you off. Pleasant hot weather beer with quite a light palate which is moderately rich and malty, yet provides a refreshingly bitter flavour that disappears, to be quickly followed up by a smooth yet short, bitter after taste with some residual sweetness thrown in for good measure. Slight aroma of straw too. The best Vietnamese offering in my opinion.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can sampled thanks to jmgreenuk. Enjoyed directly from its container by the baggage belts at Schiphol airport, so no comments on its appearance other than that the can can a nice picture of a tiger on and that the beer (unsurprisingly) appears to have won a couple of international gold medals. Given that it’s an award winning beer, the aroma is a huge letdown with light notes of cardboard, rice and cereal. Flavour is also a little lacking, with a light sweetness and bitterness. The body is very light and it’s about as close to water as you can get. I’m failing to see how this one won those medals.. -.-

Bottle at Le Pub, Hanoi. The aroma is light cardboard malt, light hop. The flavour is light bitter with a light malt, light hop bitter palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. No fruit at all. These Vietnamese lagers all taste the same.
