phfyysik (502) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2016 Pours clear golden. Aroma is a bit uninviting - old cloves, sweaty leather, musty fruits from cellar. Also some malts and sweets. Taste gives a surprise - honey, sourness, fruits. Light to drink and even after stays for a while. Not bad lager at all.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2013
Bottle pours clear lightly hazed golden straw with decent off white head and good lace. Euro Noble hop aromas light graininess and lightly sweet malt. Light body, zesty carbonation good hop character lingering through. Finishes a touch unclean. Grassy hop character lingering through with a muddy grainy malt character

KyotoLefty (8907) - 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.

marcusrr (25) - London, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2013
This is Saigon Beer’s attempt at a Premium beer, and it is much smoother, and with the extra alcohol there is more substance to their bland ingredients.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4237) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2015
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.

eduardovl (1302) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 11, 2016
330ml bottle served in a goblet. Standard filtered Lager face: clear golden yellow color forming medium white head with low retention. Sweet grains in the nose. Adjunct malts and cardboard. Notes of grassy hops. Taste follows the nose. Slightly sweet upfront. In overall, a dry taste with medium to low bitterness. Cardboard. Light body. Calculated carbonation. Boring as expected.

jmgreenuk (7079) - 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.
