2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a grenade type bottle. Contains a brew that has a hoppy kick like a thai boxer. An abundance of those hops smack you in the nose on first whiff, although doesn’t translate into the first taste. It misses that twang but it would be an acceptable compliment to thai or spicy food. From other ratebeer members notes, I’d suggest it doesn’t travel well, and is best tasted soon aftwer brewing.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Also a very nasty beer. Old pilsener tasting. Dry and sour/sweet in that bad way. Thin texture fizzy and nasty.

Bottle. I was pleasantly surprised. This beer had more kick in the aroma and a crisp flavor that I did not expect.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Average pilsener. I wish I would of had it with Thai food it might of had a better edge to it.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very pale gold, with decent head retention. Fairly clean aroma, sourdough, and light hops. The first sip is a letdown. Tastes a bit like soggy cornflakes, although there is a respectable hop presence (as in respectible for a Southwest Asian pils). Not great at all on its own, but I’m sure it complements Thai food.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
I had a hard time drinking this beer - it’s got a bit more kick at 6% than most Asian brews. An easily skunked brew, too. It’s somewhate bitter (compared to Singha Gold, especially) and is quite fizzy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slight malt and hop aroma. Fizzy yellow beer with a nice head. Slightly skunked, some malt flavor, some fruit, subtle hops flavor, light bittering. Very light body, thin. Better than most American light lagers. Not bad but fairly uninteresting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I enjoyed this beer, some malt liquor is tolerable and I believe that this is one of them. Smooth tasting and easy drinking brew. Great with onion crackers. Would buy again.
