Ughsmash (7281) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up wet grains, rice, and a touch of honey with light grassy accents.. not much going on, but it was non-offensive. The flavor found the same grains at the core with a more assertive red rice presence.. tacky on the back with a pinch of honey.. somewhat bright impression.. very dry finish. Light-bodied with a scratchy feel and tight carbonation on the palate.. not a bad drinker at all.

Botteled in one Chinese restaurant in cz, malt-corn aroma, little bit buttery, pale, white stable foam, light bitterness, light sweetness, slicky, good but nothing special.

crossovert (8682) - Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
11.2 oz gold foiled bottle. I bought this for the cool cap, not looking forward to drinking it. It pours urine-gold with a fizzy, quick-lived, white head. Smell is roasted corn with a pinch of hops. The taste is very light with some offensive grain and tanginess. The Thai have some problems with making beer from my experiences. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-08-2010 19:15:34

EdKing (2082) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2011
Colour is very pale, even for a lager. Not much lacing although carbonation is medium once tasted. First impression is a lack of flavours. Not much malt at all and subtle hopping. However, as it touches the back of the tongue there is a nice floral hop flavour that comes through. Can’t quite pin it down but it’s pleasant and flowery. Ultimately just lacks enough boldness with the flavours and if in Thailand I’d be inclined to choose Singha over this.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Appearance: clear yellow with golden glints. Little head which fades into a collar minus the filmy head. Swirls white and brief.
Nose: corn, maize, wet sweet lemon bread. Honey mingles with faint grain husks. Sweaty socks and funk in the back which is possibly thankfully short-lived.
Palate: clean and a bit chewy underneath with sweet doughy breads. Bright in the front. Lemon on top of tongue resembles watery lemon bread. Sweet then dry honeycomb in the middle. Dry grainy finish along with lemon rind. Wet breath. Skunk and sweaty socks in the back throat of each swallow.
Final Thoughts: while it was nowhere near good, twas far less regurgitable than some others I have tortured myself with over the last few years. Meh. Maybe the Thai food will be spicy enough to cover up the meager watery stank.

berkshirejohn (4972) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2011
330ml bottle from a Tescos in Plymouth. Straw with a loose white head and soft carbonation; the aroma has some rice flour; the flavour isn’t too bad, rather sweet but with a grainy body; there isn’t much to the finish, but at least it’s clean. Not bad, and probably a good match to Thai food.

It’s a lager from Thailand so didn’t was expecting so much but it surpised me. For a lager it has medium body and some good flavours. There where some hints of toast and hebrs. pale, golden, clear, minimal head, lightly bitter, lightly sour, medium body, thin feel, average carbonation, Normal Finish

daje (2611) - NORWAY - FEB 15, 2011
Bottle. Light yellow lager. None aroma except some grain, which in the taste are added by some malt. A little sweet too. Ok if you’re very thirsty I guess, but really nothing you’ll drink twice

Pours a urine color with a large white head. Smells terrible and I can’t quite put my finger on what it is. There is nothing to say about this beer really. It’s just terrible.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Tasted on 1/23/11 from a 330mL bottle purchased as a "Beers of the World" pack at Cost Plus. Pours clear pale golden with an average white head that quickly recedes to spotty lace. The nose is sweet corn with some earthy grass and bread dough. The flavor is that same sweet corn, very light grassy hops, and bread dough. The body is light with lively carbonation, and a very short corn and somewhat metallic finish.
