imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - 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

JohnRMurdoch (4158) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 21, 2016
Can @ Hanoi Airport. Pale golden yellow, massive foamy head. Corn malt aroma. Bad resinous vegetable flavour. Nasty aftertaste. Perhaps it is just because I am having it for breakfast but it is very bad beer.

eduardovl (1277) - 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.

Saigon Special 4.9 % ABV 베트남 도착 후 처음 마신 맥주. 하도 베트남 맥주 나쁘다는 말이 많아서 기대 안했는데 상당히 괜찮은 맥주. 하이네켄 흉내낸 골든 홉 아로마에 탄산음료같은 탄산감. 하지만 향이 금방 가신다. 같은 시리즈중 제일 낫다. 도착후 가장 애음하는 맥주

Tide (2695) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2016
Can from supermarket. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, malts, a bit of toast and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, toast and grass. Basic bulk lager.

phfyysik (366) - 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.

gegwilson (2723) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2016
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.

Jenner707 (56) - DENMARK - OCT 18, 2015
@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.
