2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild, perfumey hop nose with notes of raw tobacco. Deep yellow-gold with white head that recedes to good cover nice effervescence. Pleasant tasting hop flavour with mild underlying maltiness and a crisp finishing bitterness. Body is very light. Carbonation gentle on the tongue. Actually fairly drinkable, if unexciting. Bottle. Thanks JoeMcPhee.

Pours a deep yellow with a small white head that quickly dissipates. Has a sweet, malty aroma. Flavor is bitingly bitter and sour with a bit of sweetness on the end. Palate is buttery.

Sweet grass... actually, it tastes nothing like thailand. A bit like those alleged ’premium’ beers like heineken and stella though. Not worth it really.

Pours a clear yellow with a thick head that quickly disapates. Aroma is sweet corn and malt, slightly sour. Flavor is typical pale lager, malt and adjuncts ... sweet with a slight metallic aftertaste, but not horrible. Eh. Okay beer, but really no better than your average domestic ... only more expensive.

Nice pour, but the head dissipates immediately. The flavor’s okay, but leaves a nasty metallic flavor in the mouth. "Strong hop?" I don’t think so. Not even a true malt taste. Pretty much like the mass produced lagers with a stronger ABV.

Nothing special going on here, folkies. Had some hop presence, but otherwise weak as all hell. Like most Thai food, this is sub-par and nastilicious.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2004 At the Baan thai in De Panne; one of the best Thai restaurants in Belgium. Was served in a Riedel wine glass. Intens yellow color with good foam and nice shine. This heavy lager has a correct smell with a good hoppy touch. For a lager, it has a round texture and a creamy mouthfeeling well countert with hops. It was served cold and it works well with Thai food. Whin it warms up, it falls out of balans and turns into a uninteresting bitterness.
