1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
