I had this at my local Vietnamese restaurant and I enjoyed its flavor. It had a solid amount of carbonation and wasn’t watered-down. It was grassy and somewhat sweet, but it paired well with the Vietnamese dishes, especially the cilantro and bean sprouts.

Bottle. Clear golden color with no head. Sweet malt aroma. Taste is very similar. Not a very good beer.

Grumbo (596) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2014
From historic notes. Bottle from a shop in Chinatown. Pours a pale yellow colour with a small white head. Grassy aroma along with sweet malts. Quite thin, average carbonation.

Alengrin (1719) - BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2014
Tasted in a Vietnamese restaurant in Brussels. Typical Asian lager, with deep golden blonde colour, snow white head and clear rice presence; aroma lightly spicy and grainy, taste sweetish, rice-like, thin and smooth with light grassy hops in the finish. Not even that bad for its substyle (if you get one that isn’t lightstruck, at least), but I liked Singha from Thailand better.

Bottle from Salling, Aalborg, shared with Simonsen
Pale golden, white head. Smell of bad medicin and cooked vegetables. Not much taste, hint of spices, better than the aroma at least. To be fair this bottle was bought for the country tick, not an expectation of something extraordinare

No retention and no lacing. Smells of sweet bread, cereal and grain. Tastes of bread, sweet cereal and straw. No aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerSkull (1307) - SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2014
(Bottle). Scent of malt, wet grass and hops. Very thin and watery taste of sour grainy malt, rice and a minimal amount of hops. I managed to drink this beer to the Vietnamese food I ate at the same time, but without the food this beer had probably been undrinkable.

gopherfan99 (462) - CROATIA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle, pours gold with small with head, aroma is faint citrus and malt, taste is pretty bland, with a slight bitterness, not much going on with this one

Bork (170) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2014 Unclean lager with lots of cereals and a skunked, cheap hop bitterness. Not quite as watery as many in the style but sporting an usual fuel like quality. Very poor.

Drucken på restaurang i London. Fyller sin funktion till stark vietnamesisk mat, men absolut inte mer än så. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EtTuCthulhu (1049) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - AUG 10, 2014
The aroma is slightly skunky with light malts and dough yeast, and the appearance is a clear straw color with a small white head. The taste is mildly sour and a touch sweet; the palate fuses a medium body, thick and slick texture, abrupt finish, and a soft carbonation.
