Bottle, poured into tumbler. Light gold, quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is grainy, malty, very little hop. Taste is the same. Palate OK. Drinkable, inoffensive. Identical review to Beerlao, but +1 flavour, it’s a shade maltier.

Clear golden coloured body with a very thin white head and tons of bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of pale malt, lemons and not much else. Light-bodied; Very strong bubbles with a grainy and earthy malt favour, some light citrus, a bit of metal and biscuits and a dry herbal hop noticeable at the very end. Overall, not such a great offering, but neat to try and perhaps a tad better than the normal Halida - granted, I have ’western’ tastes. I sampled this 33 cL can purchased from HaLong Bay Supermarket in HaLong Bay, Vietnam in August 2010.

From a 330ml bottle on 23/4/2013 (ABV listed as 4.5%, not 5.0%). Pours a crystal clear light yellow with a small head. It seriously has no aroma to speak of (though to be fair, I’m stuffy from a cold). The flavour is sweet bready malt, a curious hint of apple juice, and a very mild bitterness. Has a light body and typical carbonation for a pale lager. I’ve had worse.

Pours a pale yellowcolor with a big fizzy head that fades fairly quickly to just traces of lacing. Aroma is quite cleanand faint with a bit of citrus, malt sweetness and grain. Taste is also on the lifht side with some malt sweeness, bit of citrus and grain. Light body and fairly smooth. Typical non-offensive Pale Lager. Probably goes best with spicy cousine.

Bottle, big quickly dissapearing head, aroma of apples and cardboard, light sweetish malty aroma, quite bland but no offensive. Boring!!!

Life is simple. If you brew beer with rice and no hops it won’t taste good. Would someone please tell Carlsberg Vietnam?

Pale by style, pale by look, this beer has aromas of straw and lemon with a little egg and dirty sock late. The palate is similar, with lemon the most prominent element. It’s fairly short and pretty thin, but would probably taste pretty nice on a hot Vietnamese afternoon.

Clear straw with a big-bubble head quickly recedes, light streaks of lace. The taste is similar to many American brews with the disadvantage of being watered down. Mostly sweet grain (corn?) very little bitter to balance. It is easy to drink, but why?

330ml bottle on 16th December 2011. Pours pale gold with dissipationg whitish foam and sip-step lacing. Resinous and hoppy aroma. Hoppy liquid with lemon and grapefruit but also some fruity sweetness. Finish is much the same, but is fairly short-lived, on a fizzy mouthfeel.
