walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Bottle. Pale gold with white head. Aromas of metal, skunkiness, corn sweetness, rice, dry grass, and some malt liquor style alcohol heat. Flavor is surprisingly full, malty, metallic, and sugary sweet. Not nearly as bad as I was expecting, actually quite drinkable.

This is known as Bia Sài Gòn đỏ (red label), which is definitely a step up from Bia Sài Gòn xanh lá cây (green label). I have had this beer on a number of occasions, the most recent being from a street vendor in Nha Trang, and yes, it was served warm with ice cubes available. I learned to tolerate this while in Vietnam. Much better than Budweiser, and I don’t think it deserves such a low rating.

35.5 cL bottle. Pours clear yellow with a crispy white head. Sweet malty aroma, rise cornish note. Dry corn flavour, dry bitterness into the finish.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2007
Robe blonde très claire surmontée d’une mousse blanche épaisse qui s’estompe. Arômes de malt. Saveurs de malt, de houblon amérisant et de céréales.

faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUN 14, 2007
Bottle. Pours a yellow colour with a thin bubbly short lasting smal white head. aroma of straw and grains, bit of hops. The flavour is rather thin with grains, bit hops and some malt. Allright on a warm day though nothing special.

TheDog (532) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 26, 2007

pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2007
Bottle. Clear yellow colour with thin white head. Malt and hops in both aroma and flavor. Nice hoppy bitter finish of medium duration. Pale lager way above standard.

LordBeamish (144) - Boozetown, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2007
bottle: I split this with King of Castle for his 100th beer and I must agree with him.....this beer isn’t that bad and certainly doesn’t deserve to be 4th percentile. Very nice and refreshing pale lager with some interesting malt flavourings. Some spicy and somewhat unidentifiable flavourings help to make this beer distinct from other pale lagers. The rice taste is also evident and enjoyable. This one deserves more unbiased ratings.
