markschiedon (556) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2015
Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. No special aroma, a bit hay. The clear golden beer has a small white head. A bit watery and wry. Combines good with spicy Vietnam food. Medium carbonated.

Fisler (371) - Bamberg, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2014
Ziemlich wässrig, kaum Schaum, wenig Geschmack. Erinnert ein wenig an Budlight. Nicht zu empfehlen, beim Vietnamesen aber wohl noch das beste.

I tried eight different beers on my recent one-month trip to Vietnam, with my two favorites being 333 and Saigon Export. Why? Because those two had 5.4% ABV, offering a little more body and flavor than the otherwise gang of tepid, adjunct gang of Vietnamese water lagers.

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.

jgb9348 (5565) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2013
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.

Maris (1351) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2013
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.
