Bottle. This isnít the worst beer I had in Vietnam. Itís actually quite crisp and clean though as any other mainstream lager itís best to chill to be enjoyed.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had this in Hue, Viet Nam. 330 mL Bottle. Pours a light, clear yellow with medium carbonation. Aroma is surprising: pineapple, fresh grass, and something else fruity. Taste is watery but quite good- much denser and with more character than any other Asian lager I’ve tried. Certainly the high point of my Vietnamese beer escapades.

Canned. Clear pale yellow, brief head. Vague fruity nose. Sweet, fruity and salty. Light bodied with a fair amount of grassy hops. Salty bitterish finish. Simple but quaffable.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very pale colour with a white head... you can really sense that itís some mass produced shit youíre about to drink, though the deal was sweetened slightly by the small amount of money I had to part with to drink this one. Sweet, wacky aroma.. pineapple, surcose, diacetyl and some nasty staleness/skunk. Thin sweetish body, not even well carbonated so all the brutal flaws are on show. It tastes like it smells but cheaper, with a sweet finish that makes you wish youíd ordered a bottled water. Not a great introduction to the Vietnamese beer scene.

Bottle (450 ml) at "City Tour Cafe" in Huť. Clear yellow - white head. Carn, light light malty, straw, hay, white bread, light dry finish. Huda stands for Huť-Danish -> Denmark gave money to the city, now they can export beer !!!

[Canned locally in Hue in 2005.]
Another Carlsberg victim of asian fluid, but a little bit more hoppy than expected, but nothing special. Otherwise nice to rate vietnamese beers after have been looking for them for some time at this site.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at B4 Belgian Cafe in Hue. Definitely tasted fresher and nicer from the tap than the can I had in my hotel room minibar. Subtle fruitiness... Iíll go with watermelon. Bit of a bite at the end.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
33cl Bottle. Poured watery pale gold with a small weak white head. Slightly fruity aroma - this beers only redeeming feature - of grapes, cool fruits, some cut grass there. Very watery, standard flavour. Some weak hops fail to satisfy in the aftertaste. This is terrible, pissy beer even by Asian standards. The only flavour is a rather irritating bitter hop. Avoid.

I was surprised this hasnít been entered into the database. MAybe the north gets Hue and we get the Huda. I purchased this with a Vergina beer, actually buying a couple. What bloke wouldnít enjoy two hudas and a vergina I ask you? Well, this is your typical Asian adjuncty pale lager that should be consumed when very cold after an obligatory large amount of physical exertion. Despite its name it is hardly mothers milk.
