2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from local Yamaya store. Sweetish malt nose, light Saaz-y hop, and just a touch of sewerish stuff. Medium straw color. Mild sweet malt initial with some amount of cardboard / rough it of hops in mid / finish has a more or less bitter edge. Thin-medium body, a bit too spritzy. Light. Not badly made.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
HK version, bottle from my student. fruity citrus, grass, corn, candy nose. Clear, deep gold, nice fine head. Bready, corny, ok hops, some citrus, almost no bitterness. Oh, no, there is some, all right, actually. Crisp body. Not terrible by any means, just lacking distinction. All right for an industrial lager.

Backlog. Tried it bottled. Just your standard mass-produced lager. Nothing to get excited about.

Rather boring bottle. Tastes differently than the Spanish San Miguel. I quite liked it and could have a few of these.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
OLD NOTES SEP 21, 2004
Reasonably strong aroma of light malt and hops. Pours golden body with bubbly white head. Odd flavour to be honest. Light malt body with a metallic bitterness and fruit flavours, possibly apple. Nothing outstanding, and definately not worthy of the title ’pilsener’.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a bottle into a glass while in Thailand.
Aroma has a medium light graininess. Medium light hop character that is slightly woody as well as floral and grassy.
Pours a clear, pale golden yellow with a moderately thick white head that shows average retention. Light lacing and no legs.
Flavor has a light sweetness, but finishes crisp and dry. Light malt flavor with light hop notes. Light bitterness. Hops are woody with some floral and grassy notes. Flavor has a surprisingly strong water character to it. No sulfur or diacetyl.
Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall a surprisingly weak alternative to Thai beers, this is very clean but is less flavorful than the Thai lagers. Also, there is something in this beer that is causing me to have an allergic reaction, I believe it is a type of hops but I am not sure which type.
