1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Crystal clear, pale yellow lager.
Corn and straw in the nose and flavor. Well-balanced, but certainly not all that strong "hop-wise." Light-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Short, dry finish.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pungent hops aroma, light bitter, slightly metallic. Beany character, with little malt contribution to the aroma. Standard lager-type smell. Pale yellow clear with small white head that dissipates quickly with little lacing. Medium-light watery body with heavy carbonation. A little bit of sweetness up front, not malty. Hops come in, but are not fruity or floral. Impart a pungent and dry bitterness to the finish, that lasts well after the beer is swallowed. This beer would be a nice with food, but by itself it's not very good.

Not bad. All of these foreign lager types from India, Thailand, etc. seem to taste more or less the same. (As do most of the American lagers, now that I think of it). Overall, it's drinkable - just different. Extremely pale yellow color, beery aroma, and malty, slightly hoppy flavor with a slightly dry finish.

Nice golden colour with a pretty damn good taste as well. Quite balanced with the hops and aromas was ok. Good solid beer.

bottled: had this one with some spicy thai food. cuts the heat down well. golden pale yellow hue. with white head. malty overtones that cuts down the hop flavor. a descent asian style pilsener, probably some rice adjuncts thrown in the mixxxx!!

the jerk at the liquor store suggested it, so i took his advice, really it isnt terrible, but its not much better than a bud light, worst thing about it was the price

wow this smells like when I take a tour of the local Bud factory. I saw a few descriptions that rated this as a bad version of Heineken...and I'd have to agree. This is certainly nothing impressive and definitely not worth the money, and not something I'll drink again (unless perhaps it was free).

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2006 Nothing different from a typical macro. They always seem to have this in Thai places. the aroma is sweet with carrots and some grass. A little sweet and some grassy notes. There are carrots and some green bell peppers.

This is not very impressive. It has very much malt liquor characteristics, kind of like a Old English 800 and not at all like a barley malt beer. Hops were there, but not enough. This is a pathetic beer, and no excuse for a pils. I would drink it only if no other beers were available.
