Bottle, at home, @10°C. Pours clear yellow with a crispy white head. Sweet sweet malty aroma, cornish note. Dry bitterness into the finish. Surprisingly good, probably due to sweet malty arome which stands out between all the Swiss industrial lagers.

DraftDodger (995) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2016
Copenhagen 6/7 2016. 33 cl bottle from Kvickly. Very simple label reassuring me that this is a beer in multiple languages and that it’s from Saigon. Actually Saigon is now called Ho Chi Minh City. So much for label information. Pours clear pale yellow with white head. Dissoves into thin patchy layer of foam after a minute. Aroma is sweet and malty. Bready and grainy. Strong carbonation and watery palate. Taste is quite sweet with only a very light bitterness for balance. They have an Ear of Corn and no hops on the label - for good reason it seems.

koshack (1245) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 3, 2016
Złote, klarowne. Piana biała, średnio pęcherzykowa, Szybko dziurawi się i opada z nikłymi śladami na szkle. Aromat słodowy, lagerowy. Lekka nuta zbożowa. W smaku lekko kwaskowe. Pełne w odczuciu, ale nic ciekawego. Nic szczególnego. Typowy eurolager.

Syfher (309) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle of 35.5cl, in a Lager glass; from the fridge. Nice refreshing pils. We’re in front of a golden clear pils, with cereal aroma and taste, especially malt. Good, but not good.

kidmartinek (4570) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Pale golden. Lots of bubbles but a small white head. Aroma is a little tingy. Flavor is just refreshing. Follows a Vietnamese well. Can’t say if it can stand on its own.

Maracuja05 (20) - Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2016
Bottle from the local Asia shop. Drink it ice cold on warm day on a beach and its okay. Drink it in rainy Germany and its worse than water.
