Pretty typical lager, slightly darker and a bit more malty than standard macros, but still quite lackluster

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.

A little grainy, slightly too sweet lightly hopped international lager (malt liquor on the bottle) with a slight alcohol punch.

Suttree (5339) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 18, 2003
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.

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.

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.

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.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2003
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.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - FEB 28, 2003
Surprisingly easy drinkable, considering its 6% by volume. Very pale color, almost no head. Taste is cruelly plastic. The label says "For export only", so the Thai don't drink it.

(23Feb2003--633ml bottle) When in Thai (restaurant), drink Thai beer. For better or for worse. My only regret is that I paid for the "big" bottle. Pitiful head; spongy, gutless, and very coarse. Surprised to see no adjuncts. Also surprised to see 6% ABV. It gave me a nasty headache. Not much to say here. A pervasive sourness, crudely alcoholic, dry. I'm nursing a cold; didn't catch the hops that other reviewers have. Really quite similar in gross character to the American Malt Liqours. Perhaps storage and transport has taken its toll, but I'm not sure how much better this swill could get.
