2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow body with a one finger fizzy white head. The nose not terribly offensive, but it’s not exactly appetizing. Smells like a combo of rice and wet paper with some minimal pale malt thrown in for good measure. The flavor is pretty minimal, just a bit of sweet grain and not a whole lot else Finishes fairly clean at first, but then it lingers on a bit too long and transitions into bland wet paper. Light bodied and watery with fizzy carbonation. Not the best, but at least it’s not offensive.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
330 ml bottle. Aroma almost nonexistant, reminding of a standard world pale lager. Taste: syrup addives (corn syrup?) and pale malt. Too sweet to be a good lawn mower. Actually tastes better than I expected thou.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0,3 liter blikje @Thailand. Gekocht op de toeristische bloemenmarkt in bootjes in Thailand voor 80 Bath (ongeveer 2 euro) beetje duur maar ook hier hebben de verkoopsters in de gaten hoe dat aangepakt moet worden.
Niet al te best bier maar de omgeving maakt veel goed.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ Base Camp, Bangkok. Medium gold with a small white head. The nose is general adjuncts, some sweet grain and honey. The taste is more light sweet grain and honey, some golden apple (if I’m being charitable) and chewy cardboard. Fizzy seltzer water body. Light and very easy to drink in this oppressive heat. Overall, a bit cheaper tasting than Singha...so not too great.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I am a hophead. That being said try finding hoppy beer in Thailand. So we have to settle for pissy lagers. Leo is one of the best of the pissy lager class in Thailand. In my opinion, Leo, Tiger and Chang are about the only lagers that are drinkable in Thailand. The nice thing about it is ice cold they go down great and they dont bloat or fill you up. They are crisp and clean and go down smooth and easy. You can drink them all night long. They dont stink like Singha or Heineken(thai version).

330ml bottle (Systembolaged, Stockholm)
More breakfast with Marduk, pre-SBWF, again, cracked open on our way to the old town - yay! Smells like a pale lager. Tastes like a bad pale lager, a bit corny, a bit husky. Poor quality, and just short of being actually nasty.

One thing is to drink it gelid in the filthy heat of Thailand. But try in the comfort of your aircon-cooled room. Smells better than Singha, looks just as bad, tastes just as bad. Watery and nearly pissy.
