12oz. Bottle: Faint aroma of rice and corn. Poured pale yellow/gold in color with a small, white head that diminished but lasted around the edges. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of rice, corn, rubbing alcohol, and apple juice. Light body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Bland rice finish. Pretty terrible.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Bottle. Pale golden, highly effervescent-looking. No head retention, tho. Sweet flavors. Nice clean drinkable palate. The flavors are sweet grains, not so bad. Corny, sweet, simple, thankfully clean.

Capa (2542) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Downed countless bottles of this stuff in some local watering holes in Da Nang. Rather tasteless though there is some noticeable sweetness throughout. It helped me beat the heat of the winter sun, though, so it gets a win for that.

heavy (2349) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 18, 2009
0.355 l bottle from a Burmese restaurant in Nice. Nice find for my first Vietnamese rating. It poured golden body with medium sized foamy head. Lemony and herbal hops in aroma, sweetish malt were just in the background. Surprisingly, flavor was fine as well, quite honey or even fruity malty with that hay raw pale lager malts and some herbal hops. Flavor of tobacco is also wriggling through taste and especially finish, which had also a touch of alcohol. Medium bodied, not thin at all. I didn’t felt any rice here, it’s a good beer for Asian standards I think.

TrefwoordPunk (864) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle 35,5 cl, drunk it directly from the bottle. Aroma is sweet and very honey-like, with maybe some hops too. The taste is a bit sweeter than other lagers, but the hops are nice. Not that bad

355 ml bottle. From Germany. Clear golden colour with small white head. Sweet honey aroma with some malts. Sweet malty flavour with some grassy hoppiness. OK but boring Pale Lager.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2009
Bottle from random shop just off hoxston square, had at home. Aroma: Sweet honey malt, bit of caramel, lightly skunked, cereal which is clearly off the rice. Taste: Clean but sweet honey malt, hop is grassy bitter and lightly peppery but im guessing its exstract. Im sitting here drinkign this right now and i’ll finish the bottle no bother, but im going to have a bag of crisps to help me.

nate2g (1548) - 上海 / Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2009
Bottle. Light golden with small head. Pale malt and dusty hops, very similar to the other local lagers. Unoffensive just boring and should be served very cold to be remotely enjoyed. Blah.

Quack-Duck (9066) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2009
bottle, at an Asian restaurant ’round the corner. Clear golden colour with a small (rather tiny) white head. Fruity-sweet nose. Malty with a fruity toch (apples), marzipane, dusty hops and a touch of alcohol. Not brilliant but quite ok to wash down, err.. I mean accompany the spicy food.
