Bottle. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Toast and a touch of roasted malt on the nose. Gentle malt and a touch of roast. Slightly nutty, toast, more malt. Finishes with a slight sweetness and roasty malt. Decent and easy drinking. Pleasantly surprised.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I had this beer poured from the bottle while in Luang Prabang, Laos. The beer had a dark brown color with a very small off-white head which quickly disappeared without cling. It had a grainy, malty aroma with some touches of earthy hops as well. The flavor was slight sweet and malty, but also had a strong bitter grainy component. It had low carbonation and very little fizz, and was fairly smooth with a light, wet mouthfeel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a medium to dark amber with a nice tan head and decent lacing. This is actually way better than I expected though still nothing to get excited about. I have yet to try an asian beer that I really like but this one is (slightly) better than most and one that I can actually get through a whole bottle of. It still has that skunky rice taste but it also has more of a malt taste to cover some of that skunkiness up.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Sweetish dark lager, mid-brown colour, fairly smooth, ok. Would be a nice change to the pale lagers over there but don’t really see why it has to be so strong for the flavour/style.
