bradlyc77 (226) - Sebastopol, California, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Bottle in Vietnam. Couldn’t really tell the difference between this and the standard lager (green label). Very typical asian lager, grass/straw, pale color, lots of rice adjunct. Refreshing yet bland.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2009
pours a flat yellow. aroma of fruity wheat, almost apple, like an artificially flavored soda. carbonation and lack of head matches that as well. Overly tannic taste.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2009
Bottled lager, average lager pour, with plenty of carbonation. Taste is as expected, not unpleasant mini-hops malt and lager-mild-bitter finish. Standard fair.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Stale musty aroma, with some honey and there were actual hints of spicy hops. It pours light blonde with a white head. The flavor is bready with some cereal grains with a little honey and a spicy crisp hop finish, tasted somewhat fresh considering it came from vietnam. not a horrible beer, tasted it next to "33" export and it was much better.

altonbrownd (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2009
Bottle at home. Hoppy, yellow beer with a big head. Not much taste to it. A bit soure even at the end. Cool to try a beer from Saigon though.

marcus (7563) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 7, 2009
This clear yellow beer poured with a fluffy white head and a fruity aroma. There is a substantial malty flavor with some carbonation and a bitter hop finish. This is a good refreshing brew for a hot day.

bhensonb (12467) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Bottle from Grocery Outlet, Woodland, CA. Golden color with a multifinger frothy white head. Aromas of light malt and light fruits. Near medium body with creamy frothy carbonation. Flavor is hay/straw with some light fruits. Mild bitterness. Rather clean and refreshing. Finish is a bit abrupt. Good deal at 3.99/sixer.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Clear golden pour. Light aromas of sweet bready malts. Perhaps a dash of hops. Light sweetness, grain, rice, and a dash of bittering hops. Some lingering light sweetness. Would be nice with hot food or in tropical heat. Better than american macro crap.

espenra (926) - Kurland, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2008
35,5cl bottle. It poured a pale yellow colour with a medium big white foamy head that evaporated fast in the glass. The aroma is very yeasty, but also smells of malts and some hints of citrus. The flavour is "earthy" and tastes of citrus fruits and some malts. It has a short aftertaste.
