My buddy brought this can back from Vietnam as a tasting gift. This is a local traditional beer of over 100 years. Taste is better than your average lager. It is better tasting than expected. Great beer for a warm summer day.

Can. Frothy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Light malty and hoppy aroma. Light bitter flavor. Short light bitter finish. Watery palate. mcberko (18060) - 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 (791) - 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 (1397) - 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.

Bitterer, ansonsten wässriger Antrunk. Metallerne Noten dominieren den Mittelteil, wenig herb, plörrig. Kurzer Nachhall. Bäh. 8/6/6/5/7/5

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 (9527) - 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. monk191 (2003) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2016
The best of Vietnam's domestic beer. Pours an ugly yellow. Smells like beer and bit of sweetness. Taste is smooth and a bit sweet. Had in the can. JohnRMurdoch (4914) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 21, 2016
Can on Vietnam Airlines flight. Golden yellow, big foamy head. Vanilla grain aroma. Sweet cereal vanilla flavour. Mild nutty sweet aftertaste. A bit bland. KansaiBeerLvrs (5190) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2015
Can on my flight to Hanoi taken for the tick. It pours a clear gold with a thick 1cm of foam that leaves good lacing. An earthy green hop aroma on a sugary grainy body. The taste is also very sugary with a bready graininess and minimal hoppiness. Not that terrible.
