Picked up a bottle while in Seta, Japan. Pours out clear light yellow topped with a small white head. Aroma O wow who would have guessed they also have skunks in Vietnam. Some sweetness after the skunk. Tatse is not to bad light corn, sweetness, and not much else going on.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Decent head with a distinct, smoky aroma and a rather curious, fruity caramel like flavour that is slightly bitter with a short, thin after taste. Similar in taste although inferior to Saigon Red in my opinion.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can from FairPrice in Singapore. My crappy pale lager ticking continues. Tastes like a thin malt likka - kinda grape-y and boozy, although it isn’t boozy. Not very good at all.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml can @ 5.3% ABV. Pours yellow with a small frothy white head. Aroma is corn, sweet malt, faint fruit notes. Taste is sweet, watery and papery. Another insipid pale lager, but at least is is inoffensive.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can at Craft n’ Taps Hanoi. Poured a clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is light malt with some hoppy notes. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light woody hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I’ve tasted worse, much worse. At least it’s refreshing and drinkable and isn’t over carbonated. It won’t win any awards but I think some of the earlier ratings are a little harsh.

Can @ Hanoi Airport. Pale yellow gold, good head. Strong vegetable resin malt aroma. Harsh rye vegetable flavour. Goes down badly. Another Vietnamese dud.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from MItsuya’s. Light malt notes but really not much aroma-wise going on. Cardboard, malt and papery hop flavor on the palate. Finish is watery, without much hop action at all. Meh, bottled water.
