Sato is a traditional northeastern Thailand (Isan) beer style that has been made for centuries from starchy glutinous or sticky rice by growers in that region.
Somewhere between a Beer and a Sake in style.

Big bottle from 7-11 @ Koh Lipe, Thailand. I can’t drink this all.. This is like cheap white wine. Wooh.. Not remind beer at all. 2 points for nice surprise when pouring this to glass, first smell and first tasting :D

This is not beer. It is rice wine from the northeastern part of Thailand. It is closer to Sake or very light moonshine than beer. There is no carbonation at all. I’m not sure this product should be on RateBeer at all, because it cannot be evaluated based on the criteria set for beer. Just wanted to provide this background info. If you’re into Sake, you might appreciate this, although it is a cheap, poor quality rice wine, with much better alternatives. Bought mine at Family Mart on Sukhumvit Soi 48, Bangkok, for 46THB, a little less than 2$ USD.

Bottle from a Bangkok 7-11. Poured a almost clear, water like with no life at all. The aroma is sweet, grainy. The flavour is strong sweet with a sweet grainy, rice, malt, apple palate. Light bodied with flat carbonation. Way to sweet for me. Pretty much undrinkable.

Silvan7 (1098) - Samarate, ITALY - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle @ home. Giallo paglierino, cristallino, schiuma assente. Aroma non molto intenso ma pungente, di riso fermentato, sakè, vino bianco, uva acerba. Gusto acidulo, dolciastro,per nulla amaro. Caldo, alcolico, per nulla rotondo, spigoloso. Non equilibrata e per nulla armonico.

*Bottle in Phuket, Thailand. Strange rice aroma. Fruity hints, easy to drink but strange. No bitterness, grainy rice, a bit mouldy. Interesting though.

AlfredoGarcia (262) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 28, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2016 500 ml bottle. Bought in a 7 eleven in Bangkok. Rice kind of smell, Bad. Disgusting taste! I had to leave it after I tried it. Sweet ricy kind of taste, but in the worse way imaginable.It’s the only beer in my life that after a try i couldn’t continue. I would rather have water for the rest of my life. YES, IT’S THAT BAD. Thanks to my ratebeer historial, I cant tell that untill the 30.01.2016 this is the worse beer I have EVER tried.

Bottle shared at the 2015 Ottawa Year-end celebration, although not sure I should say thank you to Lubiere for bringing something that he bought at a Thai market in 2011!!!! Described as "thai pooch" with light probiotic peach yogurt note, some vanilla, very thin, odd mouthfeel and overall beer but at least there were people to share it with.

Bottle from the 7-11 in Koh Lipe (cheapest thing there!). Clear watery appearance with no head. Aroma of manky old rice, bad apples, cat pee and a bit of peach. Flavour is over moderate sweet. Certainly makes me think of the bad Sake / Scrumpy combination. Serves me right for buying the cheapest thing as a tick. certainly not my thing.
