ALLOVATE (2899) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2015
Driving through the Hai Van Pass it was time to say goodbye to Huda beer and hello Larue as it was advertised literally everywhere as you enter Danang - shops, restaurants, pharmacies, bike repair stores, you name it it was overly abundant on the eye.
In Hoi An it was dirt cheap and came in big bottles so clearly the beer of choice. Lemon-peel yellow in colour and at some stages bright as bright, and others suffering a little chill haze. Head is a soppy white mess and mostly lasting. Lemongrass, pineapple, steamed rice, damp chaff and wheat ears make for an interesting aroma. Soft, quite soapy and foamy with a cleaner than expected finish. Not much malt; delicate hop taste in back with a subdued, almost non-existent bitterness on the swallow. No length. Bland and one-dimensional if not for the aroma. In light of its availability and price it did the job! (355ml & 450ml, Hội An, Quảng Nam Province, Vietnam)

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2015
[Bottle & Can] Had several of these in Vietnam. Straw color with a fizzy white head. High carbonation levels. Sweet grains, grass and light metal in the aroma. Flavors are similar. Dry and somewhat grainy finish. Thin, but better body compared to some other light lagers I had over there. Tasting notes from 8/2014.

MrTipple (3587) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2014
Aroma: grain malts. Appearance: clear gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters continue, grain malts, lively carbonation. Overall: inoffensive Pale Lager, but completely boring, OK in the Vietnamese heat. Bottle at Essence Hotel, Hoi An.

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2014
330ml cans and 450ml bottles in Vietnam. Pours darker yellow than Saigon but still quite watery. Aroma is weak "hops" of a usual macro lager. Taste is better in my opinion that quite a few Vietnamese lagers. Slightly bitter and hoppy.

adasko (1884) - Poznan, POLAND - NOV 5, 2014
W zapachu jest kiepsko. Dość słodko słodowo, ale w tle kanał. W smaku stęchłe trociny a poza tym pustka. Odczucie w ustach znikome, jednak rownież mało przyjemne. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Calisky (2492) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 17, 2013
Goutée au Vietnam. Meilleure que Larue export, malgré tout un nez très léger de houblon, pas de corps ni carbonation. Gout leger de malt. Légère amertume en fin de bouche.

jaghana (5498) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 7, 2013
Can 33cl from Calisky. A clear lager, nose is strange on dust and stringency. Aroma is low, again dusty touch, astringent bitterness even if there is no hops aroma, very watery and poor aroma.
