Halve liter fles in Punjab restaurant Londen. Pilskleur, aardige kraag. Weinig geur, smaak en nasmaak. Goed genoeg om het etem mee weg te spoelen, maar op zichzelf staande onvoldoende.

(31-Dec-2006) Stale hop and slight sweet malt aroma. Clear amber colour, ok head and suds lacing. Hoppy front up taste and light malt flavour. Thickish mouthfeel, hop finish but uninspiring. Perhaps a bi skunkish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle @ Hoa Xuan Vietnam-Indian Restaurant, Tampere.
Pours a clear golden colour with loads of large bubbles and a large white head. Aroma of sweetish malts, flowers and grass. Flavour of sweetish malts, grassy hops, rice and weak spiciness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a light sweet finish with some bitterness. Goes very well with Vietnamese food.

Originally reviewed Jan. 29, 2007:
poured with very little head. aroma is coffee like. colour is hazy yellow. looks like pee. taste has hints of citrus in it, but again, has attributes of coffee in it. little after taste. assaults tongue first couple sips. after that not a bad beer really. quite drinkable.

Very sweet and sugary beer that had a bit of stickiness to it but not too much. Was a good palate cleanser for the Indian food I was eating.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has the aroma and flavor of a bready/grassy pilsner style lager but a bit rough around the edges. Not bad really, Belgian pale lagers typically are no better than any other pale lagers because there made for the same reason, this was decent compared.

500 ml. Finally, there’s a "premium beer brewed with patience using malt, rice, hops, yeast and spring water"! Orange-peach color with a lasting sticky head. Nose is honey, lemon, light toast and flowery dry grass. Flavor is the same, but slightly less sweetness and more dry lemon grass. Light-medium body is sweet, watery and tingly, but has a crisp, slightly tart, grainy-hop finish that balances. A decent quality, Asian-style lager that does go well with spicy food, as advertised.
