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.

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.

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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Coors light transparent gold with a thin but persistent head which was being fed by a steady stream of tiny bubbles throughout the session. Aromas of Heineken skunk and corn husks. Oh man Ratebeer! What have you guys done to me!! I bought this one in the name of adding another country to my resume. Strong hop presence, though not very pleasing, extremely ricey and completely forgettable.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2003 Bottled: Like the Singha Gold it's only worth drinking to a very hot meal.

Foul nose, yellow green color. Bad taste and thin. Too bad to finish. Drain pour.

artificial hoppy smell. Whatever it tastes like, it is terrible

Generic looking, with some decent sustained carbonation. OK balance of hop and malt in the aroma. But the taste is not good. What is that taste?? Ugly... Tiny bit of bitterness I think. Not a very good beer, to my taste.
