Can sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks Tom C. As Biere Larue. 4.2%. Clear yellow. Aroma of acetaldehyde and paper. Papery and slightly grainy flavor, finishes slightly drier. Really light-bodied and watery.

Had this in Vietnam at a local café, not a bad light beer just to quench thirst and do the trick. Has not much character, light on all counts, better than any lights around here like budlight or coors light at least.

Pale golden beer, refreshing, quenches the thirst. Havnt had outside of South East Asia, one of my favourites while I was there but doesnt really compare to good european lagers. Cheap as hell though!

Bottle@Brother's Cafe, Hoi An, Vietnam. Golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is yeasty and dry, and the flavour is bitter and yeasty. Overall an average bitter, dry and yeasty.

Pours clear golden straw with resilient foamy large white head. Aromas of some acetone and light grass and some malt sweetness. Not much character in the light body. Med high carb. Grainy, light bitterness. Finishes dry and lacking some depth with a lingering near astringent character

Same again. Indistinguishable from BGI or 333, really. Just Carling-standard ‘refreshing’ rubbish.

Not going to go through my usual tasting method, as it is simply another beer that makes me homesick, very difficult to get a decent beer in Vietnam. This is sickly sweet, with lots of corn notes, little bite, minimal carbonation, virtually no head and no real character.

33cl can from circle K, HCMC.
Thin white head. Clear golden pour. Nothing special.

I saw this beer before me that shimmered like a golden goblet full of iridescent dreams, and it smelt of all the fruits of the garden. It smelt of ripe, juicy passionfruit, of lemons and fragrant jasmine blossoms. It by smell alone was worthy of deities, but there being none I was left to sup alone. And I supped and it was good. It tasted fresh and creamy, like sherbet spiced with coriander, cardamon and the zest of a dozen limes. My thirst was slaked by this holy beer, but my appetite was not and I longed for more...
That was not Biere Larue. Biere Larue was a rather ordinary East Asian lager that could have been any of the others I tried, just in different packaging.
