330ml Bottle: Itís like a tall, cold glass of nothing. Pours light yellow, no head on mine, with an aroma of grass and hints of malt. Flavour is bitter with .. grass, and hints of malt. Itís really not much, and yet another example of my rule that any label that says "premium".. isnít. Take a pass.

alobar (3427) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Transparent yellow urine-like color. No head except a thin rim. Aroma of hops and malts. Smooth character with a hint of hops. Not terrible, but not a quality beer either.

PilsnerPeter (3037) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Very sweet malt flavor, with elements of straw, corn syrup and a cheap hop finish that leave in film on the palate. Not horrible.

guzzler67 (1647) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 4, 2006
Skunked, cabbage- like aroma. Clear, pale gold appearance, average head recedes quickly and leaves no lacing. Sweet malt, cereal taste that lingers too long. ABV is higher than I would have guessed. Should have waited to have Thai food with it as many have suggested.

Bottle. use to drink this a lot in a Thai restaurant. As far as I can remember it wasnít a bad lager but certainly not something outstanding. Better though than the other beer of the restaurant (Tsing Tao)

I had this with some very good (and very spicy) Thai food on a hot summer day, so I was unable to rate it as thoroughly as if I had just been taste testing. However, it had a good appearance, yellow, with pillowy white head, and decent lacing. The aroma was very difficult to dtermine, and the taste was basically what I needed at the time...cold and wet. Not a bad beer all and all.

DarkElf (3050) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUL 22, 2006
(21.3 oz bottle: $1.99 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA) Pours a very tall and fluffy, white head, at least 2 inches in height, so itíll be awhile before I can take a sip. The beer is medium-straw in color and has near-perfect clarity. A few unfocused streams of carbonation bubbles make their way slowly to the beerís surface, but nothing too crazy. The aromatic nose is spicy and grassy, so much so that whatever malt aromas there might be, I canít really notice them. No defects like skunk or cardboard in the nose either. Similarly, the flavor is grassy, spicy and mildly bitter, with the malt base not having much impact except in contributing a noticeable sweetness. Body is light, but very clean and refreshing in spite of the sweet finish. The head fades to a thin, filmy layer and leaves no lacing on the glass. Quite a tasty beer for a straw-colored lager, one that I think would be great to quell the spiciness of Asian food.

Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Fruity malt aroma. Flavour is fruity malt.

Delirium (645) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a reasonable white head. Aroma is fairly weak, mainly of a bit of nondescript sweet malt. Flavor is similar. Basically tastes like most other Asian lagers; on par with the Japanese macrobrews, but maybe slightly better than most.

rw4244 (134) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2006
Bottle 66cl. Poured a dark amber, with a decent white head that actually lasts until the end (unlike most Asian beers). The aroma is fairly rich, malty and hoppy, with a definite hint of caramel. The flavour is similar, not watery though not particularly flavoursome - golden hops with a touch of malt. The aftertaste is similar, with a metallic tang I presume from the alcohol. Good, probably the best Thai beer Iíve had.
