Tap at the brewpub. Poured a hazy straw colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is light malt. The flavour is moderate bitter with a yeasty, light hop bitter palate. Refreshing but a little average.

Notes from 2015.
Draft at the Coffee House Restaurant, Hanoi.
Have to go against the grain on this one. Enjoyed many a pint of this one over time. Sunny medium gold body that is bright and alive with a tight, streaming carbonation.. Two inches of rocky foam atop holds and needs its bitter goodness chewed off before imbibing. Peppery, minty and earthy Noble hop nose balanced by a clean, toasted malt profile. Solid malt on the palate; quite firm whilst still being delicate with the lively carbonation seeing it bounce across the palate. Good malt meets good hop and after the first sip it is all one melded and flavoursome lager. Hoppy, bitter and earthy; I’d say a mixture of Czech and German Nobles (?). Ends crisp with plenty going on before and after the scenes. Very nice drinking and a surprisingly good Vietnam staple! (5 Dinh Tien Hoang, Hanoi, Vietnam)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lager is a deep gold with a thick dense head and a grassy, herbal
aroma with mild malt notes. Raspy carbonation on a light body.
The taste is very green earthy and bitter with not much malt
character. Not really my thing but well made.
