3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2013 From a 330 ml can brought back from Thailand from a coworker when she visited. Pours a golden yellow color with a thick white head with pretty good lacing for a lager. Smells of pale malt, rice, honey, Tastes of all the same things with a decent hop presence for a lager. Can?t even taste the 6.4 abv. Mouthfeel is light and creamy and pretty well carbonated. Overall this is a pretty good foreign lager. Better than thier competition Singha for sure.

Probably clouded judgement due to the outside temperature.... But I quite like it. Pours light, clear yellow with fairly big white head. Nothing special there. Aroma is bready with slight notes of honey and fruit. Taste is fairly mellow, slightly sweet at first with just a hint of bitterness in the short finish. Body is light with fairly controlled carbonation.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2013 640ml bottle at a restaurant in Thailand. Yellow/straw colored body. Tiny white head which disappears almost immediately. Has a hint of rice flavor to it. I don’t know what they do to this one, but it gives you a major (C)hangover. :P

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light cloudy yellow with white foam. Aroma is a light fruity hop. Taste is what us call a light lager with a sort if fruity essence. Almost has a summer ale character. Moderate palate. Unusual beer. Nothing exciting but ok. Might be better iced cold on a hot day.
More beer please...

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 This is as bad as its rival Singha beer. But I did have a good laugh reading the style for this beer that was given above. Malt liquor - yeah, sure!

An odd beer I would rate quite poorly back home but in the humid heat of an open bar in Thailand this one does something water just can’t. Found it odd as the alcohol on each beer I tasted was clearly up or down. Some had a fine texture and balance, clean taste and delicate crispness while others were heady, hazy in appearance and had a fusel alcohol burn to them. Judging this was strange so I’ll generalise. Tinny, honey malt nose with hints of pear drops and lemon candy. Appearance anywhere from beautifully clear yellow gold, to chill hazed, to generally hazy. Head was always a hit and miss also. Often, yes this one I consumed in great quantity, I found the canned version the most highly diverse. The taste similar to the nose. Honey malt, light hop, light metal, gassy from the CO2, refreshing given the climate. A turn your brain off completely beer. Well suited to Thailand!
