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.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
They even have skunks in Thailand. Looks nice, if not a bit pale. Some noticeable malty aromas and flavors but that is the only saving grace. If I were in Thailand, I'd drink it because it was there and it has to be better than the tap water. Didn't notice the hops.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Well, this one starts off looking...terrible. Very light gold with white head. Smells typical pilsener, though a little weak and slightly pungent, really. Flavor is, well, not quite as bad as I'd expected. Certainly better than a lot of watery pilseners, and fairly drinkable. Certainly not up to par with the Eastern European pils though.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Grainy aroma, nice dark color. Has a decent finish, but the taste does not change at all. Slight citrus taste. I probably won't have this again, but it's worth trying.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Not bad considering this is macro swill. The ABV of 6% is not overly noticable and the taste is rather sour. Finish is dry and forgettable. Worth trying but not worth trying again.
