3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle at Benjarong restaurant, Monroe WA. Pale golden. Standard lager aroma but surprisingly not one-dimensional flavour. Even manages a noticeable hop finish. First Oriental beer I’ve had that was actually worth a damn. It’s also worth noting that I did have some reasonably spicy Thai food to drink this with.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2006 Clear golden-yellow with a small white head. Grainy, sweet aroma. Crisp flavor with some bitterness. Medium-bodied with a somewhat bitter finish. Though this isn’t a really awesome beer, I actually really like it.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An average beer from far away. It goes good with thai food, but doesnt have that fine subtle mix of flavors that many micros have. All in all, a good beer to go with some hot spicy thai food.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Supple malt base and some hops presence. Smooth taste and decent body. Better than average for a premium lager.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle, liquor store in okinawa; somewhat thick and musty aroma, a bit stale, but not at all just unpleasant; the feel is actually not that bad, a little bit like it could become gel if it were heated--if that makes sense; not much. crops, water, fizz... oh, if only it gave quite the relief, it doesn’t.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Smells and tastes a bit ricey. Ingredients lists shows water, malt and hops, so I don’t know how much of that it barley malt and how much is rice. Can’t really find much in the way of hops either, but that’s a bit typical. Not terrible, but not good.

i don’t understand why you would want to drink with a reasonably high alcohol content in such a hot climate like Thailand. Two of these in the middle of the day in the heat, would flatten me. Still, the beer is reasonable, and you certainly can’t actually taste the high alcohol content.
