I believe this was a 0.33L bottle. The aroma was slightly grassy, with a bit of malt. Flavor had a surprising sweetness at the beginning, before settling back into a more typical pale lager profile. Overall it’s mainly memorable because it’s from Vietnam.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2016 Couleur dorée, bonne mousse. Nez légèrement houblonné avec note fruits vieux. Gout malté papier humide typique lager du bout du monde, note fruitée, fin amere avec astringence. Pas géniale

gegwilson (2864) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle in a Vietnamese restauraunt in Sheffield. Pours golden with a small but lasting layer of white froth. Mild metallic citrus aroma. The taste is similar - slightly sweet with light citrus and grain.

nickd717 (4059) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Bottle. Fizzy yellow beer, nuf ced McGreevey there. Grainy aroma, some light fruit. Fruity Pebbles flavor, like a bad Leinie’s wheat. More like Hiney’s wheat. Weird. Light and fizzy. Sheeeit man, why do I drink this stuff?

The_Osprey (5561) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2015
330ml bottle as ’Habeco Hanoi Beer’, 5.1% BB June 2016. With rice, E316 and E1201. Clear dark yellow, lightly sparkling, small white head, dotted lacing. Aroma is sugars, rice paper, touch of solvent. Body is medium, smooth, tingly carbonation. Taste is chalky, rice, papery, tangy tonic water. Plain, and not overly drinkable for the style.

TorbenJensen (1439) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2015
Hanoi Beer is a little atypical Asian lager, separating itself from the crowd by having a somewhat different hop profile. Floral aroma, which becomes almost perfumed, rises from the glass and leaves no other fragrance impression. Malt is fairly satisfactory and the expected hop bitterness is relieved of this floral flavors with very dry aftertaste.

ALLOVATE (2843) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle from the best phở restaurant in Hanoi, nhà hàng bún cha.
Sunny, medium gold with a tight and tidy, mostly lasting white head. Sweet malt and peppery hop nose, very clean and simple. Softly grainy, straw flavour to an otherwise bitter, hoppy and crisp lager. Very light, very delicate in profile. Carbonation is high especially short of chilled. A lot of swirling the glass between sips. Finish is clean. Streamlined, subtle, balanced and highly drinkable. Not bad!! (33cL, Hanoi, Vietnam)

cdntraveller (6) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 21, 2015 does not count
Sweet and refreshing taste. Very lackluster in smell and not very fizzy but because of how light it is it does go down nice.
