omhper (23007) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Bottled (4.9%) Clear golden, brief head. Cardboardy and cidery, limp and light bodied. Some very light grassy hops, no bitterness.

Oakes (15294) - 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.

DSG (11399) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at troubles’s place. Thanks mom & dad for this bottle! Clear yellow. Corny aroma with some hay. Sweetish flavor, grainy, corny, with a bitterish finish. Light-bodied.

KyotoLefty (9040) - 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.

Skinnyviking (8630) - 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.

jmgreenuk (7327) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 29, 2016
Bottle at Le Pub, Hanoi. The aroma is cardboard malt, light hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light hoppy bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation. Served cool and it hit the mark in Asia but it’s no more than a simple lager with little flavour.

solidfunk (7231) - 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.

BlackHaddock (6102) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2015
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.

jaghana (5380) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 9, 2013
Can 33cl kindly given by Calisky. A clear yellow beer, nose is on nut and peppery hops. Aroma is low, just nut, burnt nut, dry feeling, peppery and bitter hops. Even better than others Vietnamese lager, still not outstanding, maybe nice fresh there.
