omhper (19945) - 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.

Theis (13779) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2007
Bottle at the room in Hanoi. Clear yellow - white head. Arome: Citrus, straw, hay, light egg. Taste: Cardboard, hay, wet hay, citrus cest (like biting the bitter white part of the cest), lime, lemon, grape. A bit unpleasant bitter finish. Rather high carbonated.

Oakes (12788) - 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.

Skinnyviking (7231) - 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.

KyotoLefty (6696) - 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.

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.

solidfunk (4474) - 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.

jaghana (4138) - 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.

TimE (3334) - 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.
