1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Rich golden straw color. Head dissipates very quickly.
The smell is incredibly sweet and phenolic. Almost a rubbing alcohol edge.
The taste is overbearingly sweet. It doesn’t taste as boozy as expected. No hops whatsoever, but it is somehow bitter. I’m curious what exactly they did here.
The mouthfeel is as bad as it gets. it feels like cough syrup. The sweetness sticks with you because of the thickness. Blech.
Drinkability- no. Stay away. The mouthfeel coupled with the sweetnes is what really makes this unbearable.
490ml can bought at a Family Mart in Bangkok. Plain lager, the only extra is the alcohol, not flavour at all, but refreshing in a hot day deWgun (1) - THAILAND - JUN 1, 2017 does not count
Theres nothing wrong with this beers. Its a perfectly serviceable beers. It certainly beats the alternatives in Thailand in terms of value. If you, like me, just want a nice beer to get buzzed off of, then this red guy is your guy. Its the only locally brewed strong beer. I say strong because in fact its still relatively weak and may get weaker still as Thai tax laws continue to discriminate against stronger beers.
I still like Cheers red, but Ive since started to lean towards the Smirnoff Midnight 100 tall cans for beverage of preference since they are a whole percentage point higher than the cheers beer. KeefOz (1872) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2017
Tasted 6/1/2017. Can from markets, Nyaung Shwe, Myanmar; 500K. Filled 09/09/2016. Poured a crystal clear golden amber with a one-finger bright white dense foam head that retained very well and laced OK. Carbonation virtually nil with extremely rare coarse bubbles. Aroma subtly of malt; no obvious hops. Taste of slightly sweetness with low bitterness. Light body. Crisp and refreshing if cold with slight sweetness and low bitterness on the finish.

Blik van 7/11 Chang Mai. Helder geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht bitter hoppig en ietwat kruidig. Mits goed gekoeld redelijk te drinken. Koelschtrinker (20768) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 31, 2016

Can from a Bangkok 7-11. Poured a clear straw colour with a thin whispy white head. The aroma is medicinal, floral hop, light sweet malt, alcohol, light toffee caramel. The flavour is moderate bitter with a crisp, dry, mineral, hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not quite as bad as I expected. kdd230 (80) - Carshalton, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2016
500 ML can in Thailand. Pours a dark golden brown with a lasting off-white head. Moderate aroma of malt and fruit. Soft carbonation. Malty and flowery taste. Slightly different from other Thai beers and stronger at ABV: 6.5%. You wouldn’t want more than one. Manslow (1755) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 3, 2016
