2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I’ve tried this beer on several occasions at the spectacular Thai Room restaurant in Kill Devil Hills, NC. I always thought it was a good complement to the spicy food. I recently tried one by itself and found that it really does go better with the food. Pours a pale amber with a thin white head. Lots of hops in the aroma. Taste is okay with some grassy sweetness. A decent beer to go with spicy food...that’s about it.

Bottle. Pale clear golden, medium white head. Grainy malts, slighlty acidic, with a touch of green apples and some faint hops. Quite smooth for a pale lager. Nice balance between malt sweetness with a touch of alcohol , and a decent bitterness.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (@ the inventively named ’King and I’ Thai restaurant). Sweet grainy malt and hints of grassy hops. This wasnt awful but the sweet grainyness became more apparent as I drank and swamped anything else.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours pale yellow, white head. A decent bit of taste but really meant for drinking cold on hot days and with spicy food and little else.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bittersweet, full-bodied lager that manages to be both richly malty and crisply hoppy. Faintly skunky hops and fruity malt in the nose. Hints of slightly spicy booze and bread after the swallow, putting me in mind of an Oktoberfest or strong chewy Pilsener. Fresh and tasty without any of the stickiness implied by the ABV.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at thai restaurant. Pours an appetizing golden yellow whin thin, white head. Not much flavor at all. Rather neutral taste, with a rather hoppy finish with distinctive bitterness and notable alcohol. Goes well with food, probably doesn’t hold up too well on its own.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2007 Grainy but well made and one of the better Asian lagers that I have had. Page 431 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 249 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

Bottle...Straw color, moderate head. The aroma is lightly hoppy just as the flavour that also has light malty sweetness. The finish has good bitterness. An ordinary lager, perhaps a bit more hoppy than most mainstrems...very nice with the thai food
