330ml bottle at pre-GBBF shindig, August 2009. Pale gold with a few stray floaties. A bit sweet with no discernible hop bite. Rather grainy and a bit papery. Couldn’t spy a best before date on the bottle but I know this was a bit old so I’ll cut it a little slack. I doubt it would have been much better fresh though. Not exactly horrible. Just another of those hot climate lagers that may be serviceable on its home patch (or maybe with food at a Thai restaurant) if it’s ice cold and you are thirsty but doesn’t really do anything else.
Pale straw color with OK head
Grainy rice aroma.
Slight bitterness then oxidation (BB 21/03/17) and a bland thin generic lager palate.

Usual macro lager, golden, minimal fast fading head. Aroma of macro lager hops, taste of faint lager malts, rice, with some notes of lemon, a bit sweet, slightly better than other Thai brews, but still... it’s a San Miguel. MeadWarden62 (1) - - APR 18, 2017 does not count
Like it. Golden Clear and refreshing. Got more taste compare to other local lager. Also can taste hint of Jasmine Rice. Nische (2194) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2017
Pours clear yellow with white head. The average macro lager. Hay, malt, bread. Jorn69 (3106) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2017

Copenhagen 12/2 2017. 33 cl bottle from Meny. Light green glass and label with foi give it a quite flashy appearance. Hornbill on the label. Very exotic looking. Pours clear yellow with small white head. Settles as thin alost transparent layer of foam. Aroma is quite thin. A little sweetness from the malts and rice I presume and something a little sour in the background. Medium carbonation and thin watery palate. Flavor is pretty thin too. A little sweetness - not much else. Utterly forgettable. kerenmk (4722) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 26, 2016
Can sample at a tasting at Tom’s place. Thanks Tom. Clear gold with a white film. Faint paper and a little corn aroma, sweet, artificial candy taste. Light body, sweet finish and fizzy. Koelschtrinker (20223) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 17, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2017 Milder, leicht süßlich herber Antrunk. Moderat getreidig, insgesamt laff aber trinkbar. Kein Nachgeschmack. Durchaus.. erfrischend am Strand. 8/7/7/6/7/7 rayaron (1788) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - OCT 29, 2016
