2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

Many thanks for this can to kevnic2008. Puszka i do tego z egzotycznego dalekiego kraju. Kolejny dla mnie kraj nr. 111 to cieszy, ale smak i jakosc rozczarowuje. Co mnie nie specjalnie zdziwilo bo w wiekszosci tak jest. Mala piana mizernej jakosci, jasne zlociste, aromat prawie zaden, W smaku syrop z kukurydzy z puszki, wodnisty i nieco metaliczny. Realy verry bad beer.

Can. Golden yellow with large whitish foamy head, malt aroma, high carbonation, very little bitterness, abrupt finish. Generic lager, not too bad.

640ml bottle at home, shared with a friend who’s wife brought it back from a cycling holiday to Burma/Myanmar. Mid golden body, weak white head: typical lager look really. Corn, grainy aroma and taste: nothing bad, nothing good, just a bog standard semi-sweet Lager/Pilsner.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ home. ambrata, limpida con schiuma bianca non molto fine poco persistente. Aroma poco intenso, solo maltato, ricorda lievemente il miele, millefiori. poco caramello. Abboccato ed acidulo l’ingresso. Amaro il finale, non gradevole, forzato. Poco corposa, carbonatazione soft, non molto equilibrata, non del tutto armonica.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Pale golden, small to average and full diminishing head. Light, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, light cardboard and metal, faint vegetable hoppyness. Body is light, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, lighc corn. Finish is short, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, light corn and metal and faint vegetable hoppyness. Light-bodied lager – that’s it. Tastes really cheap.

Pours a clearish gold with a foamy white head. It has a faint aroma of malt and yeast with a similar flavor and a crisp finish over a light body.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can straight from Yangon, thanks very much Marie! Thin, loose, irregular, snow white head dissipating quickly but leaving a thin rim around the glass and a wafer thin, disparate veil on the surface. Pure golden blonde, cristal clear robe with only a few minute bubbles here and there. Not very inviting aroma of sourish grains, retted flax, smelly socks, wet cardboard, damp and dirty washcloth, soaked bread, fermenting grass. Neutral onset, very minerally with tingling carbo but not as much as in most industrial pale lagers resulting in a rather flat and watery mouthfeel; a very vague malty, bready sweetness comes up but not the expected rice sweetness, while a grainy sourishness prevails. The unmistakable metallic ’zing’ is there and apart from a faint grassy hoppiness briefly noticeable somewhere at the back and feeling a tad chemical, there is no bitterness worth mentioning; grainy sourishness continues, while the vague bready sweetishness remains in the end. Below average even for a tropical lager, very neutral, very watery and a bit offensive even in the nose, but served cold, I can imagine this being acceptable in the oriental sun as a thirst quencher. Good for a country tick too...

Canned@AIH53. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grains, rubber, some slight sweetish notes. Flavour is quite similar with some rather dusty, but sweetish notes. Enjoyed snow cold. Probably why it actually feels drinkable.

Thanks Pirjo! Beer country #154. Orange-golden color, small white head, some lace. Light nose has green apple and honey. Light-bodied. Flavor has lots of green apple and some honey. Light grainy notes. Quite usual sweetish fruity industrial lager. Not the worst one I’ve had.
