The reviews on this were brutally harsh. 11 guys in Sweden sharing a bottle that is God-knows how old? Really? That said, this is not a great beer. I had a couple of pints draft at Union in Yangon. It was fresh and hoppy, with surprisingly good, even great lacing. Yeah, it’s thin in the mouth. Yeah, it lacks a decisive malt backbone. But it was much better than what i had been drinking in Bangkok, and much better than I expected.

640 ml bottle from Uwajimaya. Hate to support the regime, but a tick is a tick! Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. A light fruity nose. This is a clean, basic lager: honey, a bit of dirty malt but overall pretty clean, apples, some overripe berries. OK beer. Good on 40c days in Rangoon I expect.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2015 I brought a bottle back from Myanmar to the US. It was still carbonated and retained its flavor.

Very pale yellow pour with a white head, absolutely stinks of weed. taste is grassy and I imagine in the heat it is refreshing.

Much as you’d expect. Tiny tight bubbles, light cereal flavor, minimal bitterness. It’s got quite the sweetness to it but it is balanced I guess, though it never really lilts heavily in either direction.

22 oz. bottle from an Asian market in San Pablo. It pours a nice clear light gold color with a small white head. The aroma is a mix of wallpaper paste, corn and rice. The flavor is a bit nicer with non-offensive pale malt, rice, light apple acidity and hints of hop bitterness in the finish, but very low levels. It has a surprisingly full body, but still seems watery and dry. Overall, a pretty boring beer, but a nice thirst quencher for the Thai style papaya salad I made for myself.

33cl draught in Yangon, Myanmar. Golden colour with a thick head which reduces quickly. Good lacing. Medium carbonation. Light, little sweetness. Some citrus and gentle malt taste. OK for a commercial lager. Best consumed cold.
