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

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.

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)

BlackHaddock (4929) - 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.

Clear yellow appearance, medium head. Distinct rice aroma, mildly sweet, low on hops. Average Pale Lager style.

AdiBeer (2127) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
Aroma: grain, bread. Appearance: clear gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, getting quite strong, some malts remain in the background. Overall: boring Pale Lager, but does its job in the hot Vietnamese weather. Bottle from random corner shop, HCMC.

olliejobbins (1324) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Had this in HCMC in cans and also in cay tre restaurant in Soho. Pours quite bright clear yellow with white head. Aroma is slightly metallic. When I had this in the UK, I thought it wasn’t good at all. Its a little better in the heat of Vietnam.

Goutée au Vietnam. Nez un peu houblonné, arome et fin de bouche legerement houblonés. Pas trop mal pour une bière vietnamienne.

jaghana (4653) - 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.
