Clear golden color, foamy white head. Maize and hints of fruit and hop in the aroma. Sweet malt flavor. Flowery and hoppy tones. A sweet and quite bland lager. Ungstrup (39078) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2005
A hazy light yellow beer with no head. Both the aroma and flavor are sour as if brewing cereal has been used, but also hoppy. Should probably not be drunk on a Danish winters night, but rather on a humid hot day in Laos. badgerben (5386) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Light piss color with a htin head. Very grainy and dusty aroma. Tastes like a grain silo, but very crisp and not horrific. I could actually stand to drink this on occassion. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - JAN 19, 2005
Bottle thanks to SpringsLicker!!! This gets novelty points for being Laotian and thats about the end of the story. Pale yellow color. Soda like white head dissipates quickly. Funky aroma. Light bodied. Little hop flavor. Might be very nice on a hot, humid Laotian afternoon but fails to satisfy during a cold Michigan winter.

Bottled: Light yellow coloured. Clear. White small haed. Aroma is grassy, light skunked and metallic. Light fruity aroma with vague hints of hops. Is watery and dull. Typical 3. country pale lager. Thanks Springslicker. Enniskillen (2061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Actually had a decent head that formed. Slightly foggy gold color. Aroma almost has a weed smell to it. Actually has a little bit of noticable hops, with a bit of a funky taste to it, almost like salt, and a sour tinge bu11zeye (13288) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a clear light yellow body with a large white head. Aroma of grain. Watery palate. Somewhat bitter. Thanks for sharing, Nuffield! Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2004
Golden color, light weak malty aroma, light watery taste, light body, light watery finish. Oakes (19525) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2005 Tasted in Luang Prabang, Vientiane, Savannakhet, Pakse, Tad Lo and Don Khong, Laos...as opposed to every other rater here
Golden colour. Grassy-fruity hop aroma. Some light pale malt notes. Full body. Moderate bitterness (20 IBUs). Grassy hop note is well balanced by clean pale malts. Well-made. An example of what the pale lager style can and should be. Not that it will blow you away - it probably won’t, but it is an excellent example of its style. Ten days in Laos and I didn’t get bored of it at all. Compare that with my one-night fling with Singha...
