2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2003 This beer pours as a clear, light golden brew topped with an eggshell white head that dissipates at an average speed. It has a sweet aroma that I can't completely identify but I think it's a mixture of alcohol and malt. There is an acidic nature to this beer that I don't entirely agree with but it does have a respectable hop finish that I like. The first time I tried this beer I didn't think much of it but after a few samplings I have developed a taste for it. Goes great with both Vietnamese and Thai food and is probably best enjoyed alongside a spicy meal. Good alcohol content for such a light tasting beer. Wouldn't go out of my way for it but when out for Thai food I'd order a Singha if it was available.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light yellow appearance with thin head. Aroma was moderately alcoholic and slightly skunky. First taste was alcoholic but 2nd had some malt to it. Slight bitterness and a little metallic.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Straw hue with good frothy head. Aroma was very twangy hops (Saaz-like), lemongrass, grains, light toasted malt, and some dusty yeast. Clean, watery and crisp feel led to a surprisingly sweet/sour combonation. Very acidic finish detracted from what other wise is a pretty nice pils. I think that it would do a great job of cutting through spicy Thai foods.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Straw color with moderate to high carbonation. Hop toast aroma: grassy, buttery and lightly toasted. Citrus and herbal flavor. Sour and mildly bitter aftertaste. Has some dusty qualities like it obviously came a long distance. Watery and weak palate. Still better than most generic Asian export beers. I enjoyed this with some kick ass green curry.

Pretty basic lager. Went well with my spicy and very tasty Thai food. This beer is still miles ahead of the BMC crap they shovel down our throats on this side of the ocean.

Smells pretty good, pretty malty with a mellow hop bitter finish. Not bad but again it didnt grab my attention. cheers

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2003 Plenty of malt in the body, sticks to your tongue. Quite bitter with its own hoppy personality. Similar to most imported lagers; no head, sharp but malty and quite sweet.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
had a nice floral precance too it in both aroma and flavour. Seamed a bit over-carbonated. Its "strong" hop character seemed more in the aroma aspect than bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light in colour, but rather fullbodied in the mouth, good hoppy finish. I was also very surprized, this beer comes from South-East-Asia, but it´s better than many Europeans.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2003 a rather disgusting pils.. it looked very good, got a nice pils smile, but the taste was just awful, a pils is NOT suppose to taste like that! I had to pour it down the drain
