saxo (13455) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2006
Bottle. Yet another lager. No reason to drink this one before others. Typically Asian watery taste from the rice. Pale yellow. Nice head - medium duration.

HenrikSoegaard (10090) - Randers, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2006
Bottle. Creamy white mostly deminishing head. Week to no aroma. Watery taste and very short finish. Not too bad, but not a good beer.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2006
Golden colour with a small white head. malty, corn sweet aroma with a faint hoppy touch. Malty, light sour flavor with notes of a corn sweetness. rather bland finish. Thanx to joergen for this one.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Classic pale lager yellow, slightly over-carbonated. This one is pretty tasteless but too sweet. Corn. Not horrible.

radiomgb (2143) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2006
Bottle from the <a href=http://www.lcbo.com target=blank>LCBO in Peterborough. Very pale gold in colour, thin dissipating white head, still and oily looking. The aroma is quite sweet, lots of corn, grains and chemicals. The flavour is of grains, corn, plastic, slightly sweet. Sour mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. FInishes fairly quick, fizzy.

Belial (71) - BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2005
Saigon Export is a typical lager. Nice golden and transparent body with a white head that fades away quickly. Light flavor with discrete vegetal/grassy aroma. Nothing noticeable, but it’s pretty refreshing and probably better than a Budweiser or Kronenbourg. Drink it along spicy food, courses with red or green curry for example.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2005
Sweet grainy malts with herbal and grassy hops apparent. Clear golden coloured body is topped by a generous, fine bubbled, white head that recedes to a lasting cover with some nice lacing. Mild, sweet, lightly grainy flavour with very mild bitterness. Light body with fair carbonation. While this is perhaps a bit boring and simple, it’s by no means bad. Lager glass. Fridge temperature. Bottle (LCBO, May-05).

haukur (1201) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - OCT 30, 2005
skunky aroma, taste is just what I expected,watery and very unbalanced. It´s not though extremely bad, although it´s not that bad, I would imagine this would be tolerable with spicy oriental food.. so I´m not going to slate this, tolerable but unbalanced to say the least

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2005
I didn’t think this was going to be much of a beer and i was right.Nice golden color,small white head that faded quickly leaving nothing behind the aroma was malty and sweet with maybe a hint of hops but very faint.The flavor was kind of nasty at best.Light malt and hops again with a slight medicinal side and some metallicness coming through towrds the end.Definately something is not right in this brew,the flavor and balance are off along with just the over all flavor.Try it once but little more then that IMO.

joergen (19644) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2005
Bottled. Clear yellow coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts, corn and spices with notes of rubber. Flavour of mats, corn and spices.
