2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Gift from a friend, from a delicatessen store. It pours clear deep golden liquid, with a small white bubbly head. Its aroma is light, malty, with some grainy hops and rice. The taste is very singular: it is a malty beer, with some fruity hints (grapes) but it has a curious touch that reminds me of sake, given the presence of rice. It is averagedly carbonated, smooth and medium bitter. Interesting refreshing beer to give a try.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Pours a standard pale lager body with virtually no head. Smell is pale malts, maize and sugary hints. Taste is pretty average "international lager"-style, fair enough but no big thrills to be found here. A bit sweet. No real faults on this one, just generally boring.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
33 cl.bottle. Pours darker than most lagers, average white head. Aroma of grain and malt. Tastes the same as the aroma with a tiny bit of hops. Average at best.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very heavy beer, but so heavy it’s extremely smooth going down. One thing that will catch you off guard is that going down it tastes pretty unique, but the after taste (palate) tastes something like an American light beer. It does carry the color of a American light beer but the aroma smells rich.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pour is a clear yellow with almost no head. Aroma is nothing. I guess you can always say grassy with these lagers. Flavor has a little more body to it but not much. Probably refreshing in hot as hell Thailand but otherwise a boring lager.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle at Hot Basil Thai in Overland Park, Kansas. Pour is clear golden yellow with not much of a head. Aroma is mostly clean sweetish malt. Taste is malty, quite sweet - apple fruit and ripe grapes. Palate is thin to medium, high carbonation level. Decently clean, seemed free of adjuncts (deScription lists rice, I did not detect it much).

Poured a slightly umber brownish with a slight reddish. Head was light tan, off whitish. Flavor was a bit spicy, but full and not much aftertaste. Aroma was limited, and not over baring.
