Pleasant - almost ale-like fruity aroma. Light, almost clear pale appearance. Dry, but with a bit of hoppiness. Excellent accompiment to a hot Thai dinner. One of the better Asian beers I have tried.

The nose is like spring rain on a tin roof; the body is surprisingly hoppy with butter and honey tones and a good weight in the mouth; the tail is very short - a little rusty hops. Quite pleasant and refreshing.

Wipes the floor with any mass-produced american or European lager. The only beer I put ice in. In-laws donít have a fridge. Better than Chang.

This proved thje perfect complement to my Cambodian noodle dish. Straw coloured, little head. Moderate malt aroma. Sweet to start with a somewhat bitter finish. Grainy, clean, well balanced. Personally I prefer Chang, but this isnít super bad.

What else would I order in a Thai restaurant. Nothing unpleasant, sweet malt, light grainy dryness. Now Iíll piss Oakes off by saying it goes perfect with Thai food.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2003 Crisp and less alcohol than the 6% ABV would indicate. Not a great beer but refreshing and relatively inoffensive. Perhaps getting it in Asia helps it avoid the skunkiness and retain the hops. Goes well with Thai food, but then most cold watery beers do so just as well.

Holy hell... that just was not right. I canít force myself to even finish a third of this bottle. Itís rich in some kind of taste, but it makes my neck spasm.
