If ever there was a crisp beer for spicy asian food then this is it. By itself it may seem like another beer, but with a good Thai meal, the subtle flavors come alive. Light and golden, this is a beer made for hot food and in it’s own way, it is a classic!

This is a nice, tasty lager with a strong and somewhat unusual taste. It’s gold with a big white head that lasts but leaves no real lacing. The aroma is grain, sweet malt flowery hops, pine needles. It smells basically like a lager but stronger, more flowery, with a different element that is nice but hard to pin down. The taste is similar and strong and persistent, with definite alcoholic warmth, floweriness, and a bitterness in the finish. To me it resembles a more refined, toned-down Rainier Ale (which I actually like).

Gold with fair, creamy, white head / Clean nose of grain and honey / Light body, crisp and clean with good finish / Flavors of grain with lemon and honey notes / For this style of beer, it’s very good.

330ml bottle poured into a pint glass. An aggressive pour yields a two finger white head over a clear medium yellow beer. Aroma is just a touch skunky at first but this soon fades leaving a pleasant grassy hop aroma along with some bready grain. Flavor is a pleasant malty sweetness and bready grain. Grassy hops are present in the beginning yielding to a crisp drying bitterness. The beer finished quite clean with decent bitterness, almost like a pilsener. Overall a pretty decent beer. Would be a great thirst quencher with some Thai food.

The faint citrus and malt aroma is balanced well by a light sweetness in the hoppy finish.

Really enjoy this as a crisp sharp lager that is not as crisp and light as a pilsener. Just a bit sharper than standard smooth no-finish lagers, but very enjoyable.

Unquestionably the finest lager beer in all of Asia, eclipsing even Kirin and ’real Tsingtao’ (the stuff actually made in Qingdao). Sharp, with a slightly bitter aftertaste, medium-bodied but achieving a perfect balance, ultimately. It’s 5% alcohol content is not distinct and does not overwhelm the taste. This beer compliments almost every food, Asian or otherwise.
