olsvammel (3548) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2009
Poured a watered down yellow colour. Doesnt look very appealing and the little foam that appears quickly dissapears. Doesnt smell of much. Taste of bread and a bit sweet. Works nicely on a street in Bangkok or with some thai food though, so I guess it serves it’s purpose ;)

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2009
Pretty poor stuff. Too much rice to generate much of a head. Clear gold, so, of course, almost no head and no lacing whatsover. Pretty minimal aroma. Taste just a little worse than none at all. Thin in the mouth. Some floral notes, not much detectable malt, not much bitterness, not much either pilsner or lager character, and just slightly off from nothing there at all.

pintbypint (2696) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 9, 2009
330ml brown bottle. Deep yellow. White head sits low, but has a creamy texture. Hay and malt aroma. Flavour is grain, very light trace of grassy bitterness. Dry finish, some grain and grass notes. Light body, medium carbonation. Pretty basic pale lager, suited for hot weather consumption.

Narnad (1471) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2009
Opened this baby up and it had a very pungent skunky aroma. Pours a clear, almost indiscernible yellow color with high carbonation and a very small yellow head. Flavor is very sweet corn/rice flavor, slight noble hops and then nothing. I find it hard for this beer to offend since there is nothing there really to be offensive. Overall the beer is a bit sweet and lacking hops for my taste but the alcohol is a decent strength and its fairly smooth.

lb4lb (2555) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2009
Pours clear golden with very short lived white head. Smell is light very subtley sweet malt and a hint of a chemically component and some doughiness. Has a bit of a chemically, off taste along with the light malt. Not the cleaneast pale lager and some yeasty flavors show as well. Thin body and normal carbonation. Not one of my preferred pale lagers, but drinkable, and seems to taste better out of the bottle as opposed to poured into a glass.

Parket (569) - Bruges, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2009
bottle (from oriental shop in antwerp), head fading away immediately (a beer without power or head!), strange smell: soft hoppy and artificial, also some made-up citrus taste, soft bitterness. Not good, not good!

cosmicpolly (27) - Bruges, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2009
Bottle 33 cl. Smells like sauerkraut. Has a nice head... for like 2 seconds. Taste is better than the smell, but nevertheless not the best I ever drunk. Sorry, I had to fail this beer. But good try of the Thai!

PorterPounder (5695) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2009
Ft. Myers, Fl. - Total Wines - 330 ml bottle - pours a light to medium golden with a barely there white soapy head. Wort-like aroma with a hint of honey sweetness. Flavor has a lot of grassiness with some underlying honey sweetness and graininess that is altogether not unpleasant. Some buttery notes make their way into the back end. Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side. Better than expected.

zach8270 (3579) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2009
(bottle - 330 ml) Gold color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet with hints of stale hops and corn. Flavor is light and sweet with a light touch of grains and some hops. Watery and refreshing. Session beer on a hot day without question.

zvikar (3612) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - MAR 22, 2009
Golden color liquid below a white medium head, weak aroma of grain and rice with some sweetness, flat biscuit flavor with some rice ands sweet hoppy finish. Like water enhanced with beer. I would definitely drink this one again, if it came with a free ticket to Thailand ;-)
