3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not very intense aroma even for a Pils (the beer was served very cold), a little honey, cereals and grass/herbs.
The beer appears nice, pale, clear and with a nice head.
Taste has a light/medium sweetness at first follow by a nice balanced bitterness in the end.
Definitely too much carbonation, badly served.
Medium body, a bit astringent.

The Louisiane bar, restaurant and micro-brewery on the beach in Nha Trang is run by an Aussie who brews German, Czech and English style beers, and does an extremely good job at them. This is the pick of the bunch – absolutely delicious, with perfect balance of bitter hops and sweetness. Faultless.

sipping it on the beach makes it better. This crisp, clear beer has strong citrus and floral notes. Noticeable hops balance the maltiness well.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A decent beer, especially given the overall quality of blondish beers in Vietnam. A really great lighter beer for the beer, well rounded.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A clear golden colored beer with thick white head. The aroma of malts and hop bitter. The taste is dry bitter of fresh hops with some fruits like citrus. The aftertaste of hopbitter with sweets.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden colour. Rich, herbaceous noble hop aroma...it’s a little different than the usual pilsner on account of Kiwi hops. It’s rich and woody, with lingering bread and a caramelly underpinning. Moderate bitterness in this beer is herbal, but at 32IBUs it’s one of the more robust beers in SE Asia. Light fruity hop notes balanced by rich malts underneath. Complex, rounded example, one of the better lagers in VN.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ brewpub. Pure golden with lots of rising bubbles, effervescent, lasting head with even lacing. Aroma is fresh chlorophyll, marijuana, bitter herbs and leafy freshness. Soft, velvety mouthfeel belies the fizzy appearance. The house character of beer is soft, delicate. Has a good balance, lots of sweetness, almost sugary malts but the hops balance it out. A delicate take on the style with good bitterness and high sessionability.
