EithCubes (4746) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Sampled bottled at Viet-Thai in Reims. Mine stated 4.9% abv. Essentially a rice beer. Golden, lots of carbonation, thick head but smells "off." Taste of rice/corn is pleasant, but still not a good beer - too sweet.

leaparsons (7988) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2006
Bottle. Golden yellow with a fairly dense persistent head. Aromas are salty butter, caramel, metal and corn. Flavours are sweet and sour, caramel and corn with grain and a gritty carbonation. Not a great finish. Still, there are worse beers of the style.

saxo (13833) - 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 (10420) - 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 (2227) - 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).
