eManu (449) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, - SEP 3, 2012
From 33cl can, pours clear blonde with white head. Light aroma of malts. Flavors of malts, hints of grass and gum. Quite water down. Somewhat crisp and refreshing. light sweet finish.

By far the most widely available beer in Myanmar. Available in 330ml can, bottle, 640ml bottle and on draft which is better than the rest. Pours a darkish yellow compared to other light lagers. I have found this pretty drinkable and inoffensive. You’re not going to get anything special with a pale lager from Myanmar but this is perfectly drinkable.

I’m sure that a cold one will sooth the traveller under the burmese sun. But there’s nothing exciting about this beer in any other context.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2014
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.

Bottle. You know this beer is bad as soon you open it. Wet cornflakes and mouldering carpet smell. As I work my way through the other local stuff I will know where this stands in the continuum.

bembelembe (216) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 22, 2014
Light golden color, dense frothy head that slowly dissapears. Watery texture. Medium carbonation. Weak bitterness. Corny, bit cereal aroma with cirtus notes. Dull experience but not bad.

26/IV/14 - 50cl bottle @ ZBF 2014 - BB: n/a (2014-392) Thanks to Kristien for the bottle!

Note: well, will you look at that. 11 ratings from one bottle of shitty lager. Seems I’m not the only country ticker around, now am I? :p
Clear pale yellow beer, fizzy white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of grains, cow fodder, hay, cow stable. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: grains, sweet, little bitter, some banana and banana peel even. Aftertaste: bit soapy, definitely banana now, sweet and only slightly bitter.

bartlebier (1802) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2014
Sample from 50cl bottle shared by shamelessly country-ticking tderoeck@ZBF 2014-SA. Pours a greenish pale yellow and might even have had some foam at a point in time. Aromas of unctuous grains (partly delicate almond) smoothed over by corn or adjuncts. Might have been some hops buried underneath that, plain global macro lager in every other respect. Being granted the last sample in a line of 6 was what made this import extra exotic.

Martinus (2892) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2014
Clear pale golden colour, white diminishing head. Aroma of malts and straw. Malty flavour, straw, rice/corn, slightly off. Finish straw.
(from 50 cL bottle shared by tderoeck @ Zythos festival. Thanks for sharing, Tim!!)

Bottle shared at Zythos beer festival. THX tderoeck! APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small stable white head. NOSE: grains, watery. TASTE: watery, quite bad...
