2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2005 OK, this wins the prize for the most horrifically overrated beer in my ratings: either itís got a lot worse or my tastes have got a lot more refined - probably neither. Anyways, itís sweet in a turnip/parsnip kind of way, has next to no discernible hop character, and has flabby raw alcohol in the finish that the beer canít contain, like diarrhoea spilling out the sides of a babyís nappy.rer8: this isnít THAT bad in fact itís perfectly serviceable in a kind of becksy way. some noble hops in flavour even if not very bitter, grainy malt, dry, extremely light body. gets a few marks for the fact that itís not adjuncty and DMSy like most other asian lagers.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2004 Golden colour. Grassy noble hop aroma. Fairly mild but well-balanced flavour. Grassy hops, moderate bitterness, biscuity pale malts. Not awful but quite overrated by a lot of people.

Huge frothy head (the iced mug must have added to it), metallic, grassy nose.Very light in color, even for a pils. Rather bland in flavor, watered down in texture. In the bars of Bangkok, drinkable but when better is available, why bother?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2007 Bottle (BB 01/08). Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Very light on aroma, but whatís there is pretty clean. Good balance with mostly clean flavors, just a little grainy in the finish.

Nice head and a strong hops aroma. US troops are regularly cautioned to avoid drinking Thai beer. Why? I am told it is because formaldehyde is used in the bottling process to disenfect and preserve the beer. Is this true? Any comments?

Great with Thai food as it helps combat the spiciness and heat from the food. A slight malty taste and a bit of sweetness, plesant finish.
