Clear pale yellow beer, small white aery head, unstable, little adhesive. Aroma: sweet grains and corn, hay, dusty. MF: low carbon, light body, watery texture. Taste: some citrus, grains, little bitter. Aftertaste: some chemical bitterness, bit grassy, hints of drowned tiger. Boring, but yet another tick!

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale golden coloured body with almost no haze at all and a very thin white head. Aroma of funk and some oldish malt with nothing else. Light-bodied; Sharp metal flavour with malt and vegetables behind with a pungent alcohol vibe as well, even with the low ABV. Aftertaste slightly less potent with more of the freshness coming out and some subtle hop notes even coming into play. Overall, a drinkable beer, but don’t expect much from this one. I sampled this 33 cL can purchased in a small shop in Saigon, Vietnam on 30-December-2009.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Big thanks to my friend Javier for bringing me this back from Vietnam. Thin white head, clear light yellow color with rising carbonation. Literally smells like next to nothing: some faint grassiness at best and a little sulfur. Tastes like nothing as well, some residual and faint sweetness. Best thing about this is that it’s got some vibrant carbonation. Some light vegetal notes. I can’t even think up more things to write just because this has to be one of the blandest beers that I’ve had to date.

Gold-green colour. Grainy, somewhat appley aroma is not terribly pleasant. Thin body. Appley, with fusels and other off flavours. Not one of the finer brews around here.
