Two 330 bottles sampled with Finn and Catweazle. Straw yellow. Dense white head. Lack of aroma. Light, but sweet malty flavour with notes of honey. Masked alcohol.

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.

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.

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.

Not bad, a little bit sweet to start then absolutely vacuous. Ultra clean finish. Seems awfully light for a 6% lager.

The flavor on this was surprisingly better than I was expecting. The hop presence was the most enjoyable, as this lager’s malt base was well complemented by it. Pour was usual, color was usual (for a basic lager). May come back to this one, the Tiger lager, and the San Miguel, as they’ve all been pretty decent light summer beers.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Very light gold. Clear. Quick burst of flavor. Smooth with no aftertaste. The taste stays on the front of the tongue.

Poured lighter than piss with a white head. Aroma is rubber not fresh not burnt just used rubber. Flavor is slightly sweet BMC macro swill rice crap.
