   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
XJR (3) - - MAY 4, 2013
A simple uplifting dark beer very suitable for balmy tropical nights as a change from a world of pale Asian lagers. It pours to light tan creamy head which falls away to a light lacing. The nose is one of scorched caramelized coffee bean and quite pleasant. It has a lighter than expected mouth-feel. The foretaste is reminiscent of burnt bread crust and light yeast which falls-off to an a brief after-taste of raisins and oranges.

ogivlado (7434) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 25, 2016
Bottled 330ml. -Courtesy of kajser27, shared with him and Marko. Amber coloured, small white to off-white head, whiff of caramel in the nose. Toasted malt, caramel, light cardboard and caramel syrup with notes of grain and slightly watery finish. Not bad for what it is.

trapped (2588) - New York, TURKEY - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle. Pours brownish clear amber with very small frothy beige head, faint malt aroma, medium carbonation, sweetish watery caramel infused taste, thin body, abrupt finish. Not an interesting brew at all.

Icedwarf (1392) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2016
Helder lichtbruin bier met weinig schuim. Fles 0.33L in Luang Prabang, Laos. Smaak is licht hoppig bitter en licht zoet. Een echt lekker en goed bier.

samspade10 (4) - Bangkok, THAILAND - OCT 29, 2016 does not count
Bottle from a supermarket in Thailand. As another reviewer noted, this is greater than the sum of its parts. Light body, creamy texture with a hint of sweet citrus. Others may find this beer average but compared to most local beers here in Thailand, it’s first choice.

kajser27 (1563) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 28, 2016

Marko (5247) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 25, 2016
Thanks kajser! Shared with him and ogivlado. Bronze-copper body, off white lasting thick head. Empty aroma, vague maltiness, grainy. Empty taste, sweetish, vague clean maltiness, creamy. That’s it. Nothing else. Impressively light for 6.5%. Nothing great about it, damn drinkable, better than the sum of its parts.

3fourths (9265) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2016
Bottle from H Mart pours caramel brown and clear with a short and quick head. With a mild skunky undertone the aroma is lightly malty in the way of dark caramel syrup and tootsie rolls and oxidized in the way of copper pennies. Light bodied and watery, sweet and malty with fizzy carbonation and a lightly bitter finish. This bottle was pulled from a cooler, but is showing the effects of age and transport and is not in its best shape.

Solid Asian lager, great mouth profile, crystal malt flavors, light hops. No rice fillers

dj (577) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2016
Bottle, 330ml, from a 7-11 in Bangkok. A clear brown colour with a small quickly-diminishing head. Aroma of sweet chocolate malt. Flavour has malt, a little caramel sweetness, but not much else. Moderate carbonation. Disappointing.

tfontana (836) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Bottle pour into tulip glass from Manchester Wine and Liquors. Appearance is clear, dark copper with trace sparkle, minimal off-white head, quickly fading to ring, with fair lacing. Aroma is caramel malt, fruit, English hops. Taste is fruit, caramel, English hops. Palate is light-to-medium bodied, thick texture, soft carbonation, and malty, sweet finish. Overall, good for the style. Enjoyable but not complex.
