Bottle in a Vietnamese resauraunt in Sheffield. Pours golden with some with froth that fades to nothing in next to no time. Vague grain aroma. The taste is light spice and grain. Pretty awful.

@33 cl bottle brought in Vietnam.
Standard pale lager, clear golden color, no particular head. The aroma is malty with hints of hay and honey.. The taste is bitter and dry. But the carbonation is way too high.

Can from a shop in the old quarter it is a clear gold with a thick white head. The nose is sugary sweet grains - kind of gross and cloying. The taste is sweet grainy hay and sugar with a very mild biscuit & hop character. Better than the nose. Meh ok for a macro I guess.

Drank from the green bottle at the #1 Bun Cha stall in Hanoi. It was 90+ degrees and 90+% humidity. The beer was perfect for the environment. Even thought it was just a fizzy yellow lager.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I took this one as Vietnam’s version of Asahi Super "Dry" as it didn’t have anything going on, and besides a plate of pork and mudsnails it was virtually tasteless. Translucent, yellow gold and highly charged with a quickly diminished fluff of white. Aroma has a mustiness to it with just a hint of grain, grass and rice. Taste is, well, MIA. Fizzy front, gassy finish with a faint touch of grain, rice and leafy hops in the dry finish. Slight soapiness to it for feel but it is otherwise lean, thin and clean. Pretty bland stuff! (33cL bottle, Lion Restaurant, District 10, Saigon, Vietnam)

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Green 330ml bottles (two) in some random Vietnamese restaurant in Shoreditch on 27th March 2015. Waited half an hour for a seat and the meal was crap: luckily I got a beer rate out of the place. Pale golden, clear, bright and clean: no aroma bar rice/corn and very little taste. Mild hop bite but mostly sweet and bland.
