visionthing (3318) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2012 Bottle by the pool in Hoi An. Light yellow with a small white head. Aroma of malt and grain with a hint of caramel and cooked vegetables. Sweet and lightly malty. Quite standard South-East Asian pale lager, but a bit more body and taste. Goes down easy in the heat. Hint of bitterness in the finish.

solidfunk (4911) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 10, 2011
A small touch of decency in a world of bad Vietnamese lagers. Better than all the other Saigon named brews, this one has a tang to it at least - one that’s not all bad. In a bottle in Saigon.

Skinnyviking (7536) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2011
Bottle. High creamy lasting white head. Clear golden body. Malty weak and too sweet aroma and flavor. Little hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Short aftertaste. Boring.

Capa (2212) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Drank plenty of this in Da Nang. Had some sweet malty tones to it and some apple. Really nothing to remember beyond the fact it was refreshing on a hot November afternoon in Vietnam

KyotoLefty (7175) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle in Osaka. Light, fruity, citrus aroma. Ok malt, not very special but refreshing and fruity with lots of citrus. A bit of cardboard takes away, but just a bit. Light, bubbly, and good for hot climates, I suppose. Better than expected.

   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 1/5   TASTE 2/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 3/20
Oakes (13185) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2009
Dull gold. No head. The aroma is a little bit appley. Soft, flat body. Not much hop and more cereal than malt. Poor balance but all round an unimpressive brew - the middle one in the Saigon line.

1.6
   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 6/20
Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2009
Green bottle, cafe in Hanoi. Gold beer with lots of rising bubbles. Aroma is eggy, sulfuric with unmalted grain. Smooth palate with low carbonation. Mild flavors. A lot of lingering sweetness. Not bad, not good.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2009
Green bottle. Clear golden with a whispy white head that slowly diminished. Malty and citrusy aroma and flavours. OK bitterness but short finish. Less than inspiring.

TimE (3894) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 14, 2008
Brought to me via a friend from Vietnam. This was the best thing she brought. A step up from a regular lager, but certainly nothing special.

Had this with goat brain soup in Ho Chi Minh City. Not horrible. Golden color with a white head. It’s gotta be cold though!
