1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Found this little gem at the beer store near work. Pale, light yellow, almost totally clear and devoid of color, small white head that quickly dies, and tiny bits of something floating around. Aroma is bread, rubber, and maybe some band aid. Light bodied, fizzy. Taste is skunked at first, then opens up into bread, sour stale grass, peppery yeast, and stale pale malt. It’s no cerveza ole, that’s for sure.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours pee yellow, almost no white head. Smell is faint and it is good because it is faintly of pee, with some yeast smell to it (I think). Tastes like bread and pee, with a somewhat pleasent bitter finish that turns into a nasty bitter aftertaste. Not good.

From a bottle. Looks like a typical American Macro in that it’s pale yellow with a thin head. The smell reminds me of some of the bigger name German beers out there. Almost like Beck’s. Very little flavor present. Very boring beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Pale golden, mediumsized white bubbly head. Malt, hops and maize in aroma. Weak sweetish bread taste with bitter finish. Pleasant bittersweet aftertaste. Gets a bit better when not being fridge-cold.

Clear, bland appearance. The aroma was offensive and decidely unpleasant. But the taste wasn’t too bad. I’m so used to drinking beers which promise more than they actually deliver, I must admit it was nice to have one that was better than its first impression led me to believe it would be.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a Jekyll and Hyde beer whose experience radically varies from bottle to bottle and sip to sip. At the coldest temperatures, the beer is at it’s best. Every degree it warms brings it one step closer to its malt liquory Thai siblings, its taste revealing its high alcohol content. As a side note, Thais drink their beer with ice, and I am never sure if this one is brewed taste-adjusted knowing that it will become watered down over the course of a glass. Clearly, even wondering about that doesn’t bode well for it, but in Thailand it’s still better than almost everything else.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 That is a bitter beer with caracter!, I liked it so far, but I would not drink a lot of this at a party. It is clear but a little thick, bitter and not that strong.

I picked this one up for the sole purpose of accompanying some thai green curry. Very heady pour, light straw in color. Slightly effervescent. At first had little to no aroma or taste but as it warmed, got hints of the malt, kinda bland though. Yeasty too. Was hoping this would match the curry better but lacked the carbonation and body. So so beer. Cheers!

Southeast Asia has yet to produce a decent beer. I had very low expectations for this.
No surprise. Easily one of the worst beers That I have ever drank. Stinks real bad. Skunk and general nastiness.
Tastes sweet, skunky, & solventlike.
