Poured from a 330 ml can. pushkinwow (2910) - Ottawa, CANADA - OCT 9, 2017
Aroma is pretty bland with some grain and rice notes. Hints of floral and herbal hops. No phenolics and light esters.
Pours a very clear, bright gold color with a small, thick,white head that recedes to a thin film that lingers on the edges. No lacing or legs.
Flavor is lightly sweet with some grain and rice notes. Light bittern so with a surprising hoppy profile, though hops are a dull herbal and floral note.
Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, another fairly bland lager. Rice instead of corn and a slightly different hop profile than 333. The beers are fairly different side by side. Clean, unoffensive, cheap at $0.60 and a bit boring. It's a light lager but good on a hot, muggy day.
Can...not sure I should say thank you to Ian but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Lightly hazy golden pour with some stale hops and when cold drinkable, especially on a beach. Lubiere (14182) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2017 A hazed blonde lager with a thin white head. In aroma, light rice adjunct with light metallic notes, so-so. In mouth, classic Asian lager with light German hops, light mineral notes, not so bad. Can in Halong Bay boat tour. HenrikSoegaard (14646) - Randers, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2017
Can. Frothy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Light malty and hoppy aroma. Light bitter flavor. Short light bitter finish. Watery palate. mcberko (19178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2017
330mL can, pours a clear piss yellow with a medium white head. Aroma brings out straw, corn, herbal notes and light vegetables. Flavour is along the same lines, with straw, cereal notes, and a herbal and vegetal character. Standard macro lager. Just barely drinkable.
Nevalainen (846) - FINLAND - JUL 24, 2017
Clear pale color with white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is light bitter and little sweetish. Notes of rice and honey. Nothing special, but good enough of you are thirsty. biir (1632) - Berlin, - MAR 13, 2017
Bottle from Dong Xuan Center, Berlin - pours pale yellow, white head. Taste is sweet malts, vanilla, pears. carbo is medium, body is bit watery. even though the taste is mostly dominated by honey-notes and cardboard, this is quite round and drinkable. Okay. Koelschtrinker (21827) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 26, 2016
Bitterer, ansonsten wässriger Antrunk. Metallerne Noten dominieren den Mittelteil, wenig herb, plörrig. Kurzer Nachhall. Bäh. 8/6/6/5/7/5 YantarCoast (1558) - Moscow, RUSSIA - MAY 28, 2016
330ml can bought in Vietnam and then transported half-way round the globe. Production date is 31/08/2015. Can proudly states "UNIQUE KNOW-HOW / TRADITION OF HUNDRED YEARS" so it has to be good, right? Pours pale yellow with a white head that fizzes away in seconds. Aroma is rice, sugar, malt, and corn. Taste is grain and malt. jmgreenuk (10104) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 6, 2016
Can from a Hanoi convenience store. Poured a pale yellow colour with a frothy white head and plenty of bubbles. The aroma is light malt, cardboard, some hops. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a light citrus, woody hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium to light bodied with lively carbonation. It’s not too bad. Better than many other Viet beers I’ve had. A little gassy up front but it soon died away.
