Blond color. Cheap aroma, with just some malt. Un-interesting flavor, pretty sweet.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale gold w/ white head. Light malt nose. Light palette. Actually found this beer to be nicely structured. Quite clean w/ a nicely dry, mildly bitter finish.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rocky white head. Golden yellow. Spotty lacing. Slightly skunked malt aroma. Sweet. Nice hop finish. Above average for a lager but not great for a pils.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is quite good, little head vanishing quickly, nicely balanced malt and hops, and a nice not to bitter aftertaste.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Straw color. White, slightly creamy head. Fair amount of carbonation. Pretty typical pils aroma, a little hoppy and malty. Fuzzy mouthfeel. Like others have said, if I were in Thailand I'd drink this because it was there, just like when I'm in Jamaica I drink Red Stripe.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pretty typical lager, slightly darker and a bit more malty than standard macros, but still quite lackluster

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is a classic Bohemian style that is assertively hopped with a low hop finish. Crisp finish on the palate balances well with the dominant malt flavor. Probably in the neighborhood of 1060 OG which is high for the style but it does not detract from the finished product. One of the worlds best lagers. The trip from Thailand can be rough on it but I think it travels better than most green bottled European products.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A little grainy, slightly too sweet lightly hopped international lager (malt liquor on the bottle) with a slight alcohol punch.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 Fairly typical Pacific Rim Lager. Maybe a little drier than most and the flavors is a little bolder than, say, a Kirin.
