2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

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.. -.-
