I honestly dreaded this one, but itís not so bad. Reminds me of a watered down Heineken, with the hops making a noise on the back of the tongue. Thereís a weird pancake flavor somewhere in here. Hmmm...

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Quenching Thai pilsener wtih slightly more muscle than its peers. Pale gold, short vanishing head. Barely-there hoppy nose. Has a bit of body for the style. Hay-like hops. Dull. (Bottle)

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pale golden color, minimal head. Aroma mostly of skunk, I donít know about the hops, some sweat as well. Doesnít taste like 100% barley malt. Has a long bitter and unpleasant finish that completely detracts from anything else you might be eating or even thinking. Ouch.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Found this little gem at the beer store near work. Pale, light yellow, almost totally clear and devoid of color, small white head that quickly dies, and tiny bits of something floating around. Aroma is bread, rubber, and maybe some band aid. Light bodied, fizzy. Taste is skunked at first, then opens up into bread, sour stale grass, peppery yeast, and stale pale malt. Itís no cerveza ole, thatís for sure.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours pee yellow, almost no white head. Smell is faint and it is good because it is faintly of pee, with some yeast smell to it (I think). Tastes like bread and pee, with a somewhat pleasent bitter finish that turns into a nasty bitter aftertaste. Not good.

From a bottle. Looks like a typical American Macro in that itís pale yellow with a thin head. The smell reminds me of some of the bigger name German beers out there. Almost like Beckís. Very little flavor present. Very boring beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Pale golden, mediumsized white bubbly head. Malt, hops and maize in aroma. Weak sweetish bread taste with bitter finish. Pleasant bittersweet aftertaste. Gets a bit better when not being fridge-cold.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear, bland appearance. The aroma was offensive and decidely unpleasant. But the taste wasnít too bad. Iím so used to drinking beers which promise more than they actually deliver, I must admit it was nice to have one that was better than its first impression led me to believe it would be.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a Jekyll and Hyde beer whose experience radically varies from bottle to bottle and sip to sip. At the coldest temperatures, the beer is at itís best. Every degree it warms brings it one step closer to its malt liquory Thai siblings, its taste revealing its high alcohol content. As a side note, Thais drink their beer with ice, and I am never sure if this one is brewed taste-adjusted knowing that it will become watered down over the course of a glass. Clearly, even wondering about that doesnít bode well for it, but in Thailand itís still better than almost everything else.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 That is a bitter beer with caracter!, I liked it so far, but I would not drink a lot of this at a party. It is clear but a little thick, bitter and not that strong.
