Picked up a bottle while in Seta, Japan. Pours out clear light yellow topped with a small white head. Aroma O wow who would have guessed they also have skunks in Vietnam. Some sweetness after the skunk. Tatse is not to bad light corn, sweetness, and not much else going on.
330mL can, pours a clear piss yellow with a small white head. Aroma is lightly skunky, with cabbage, straw and corn. Flavour is lightly skunky, with corn, straw and skunky cabbage. Cheap macro lager like all others. Bad. Nevalainen (769) - FINLAND - JUL 4, 2017
Drank it with some rice and chicken in Nha Trang, Vietnam. Pale color with tiny white head. Malty aroma. Taste is papery, but suprisingly smooth mouthfeel. Ok pale lager. Pyobon (1398) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2017
(Bottle) Clear yellow amber, no head. Cardboard, straw aroma. Fizzy with a slight stickiness. Sweet start, but sugary not malty. Something faint and aromatic appears in the mid-palate. There’s a slight but harsh bitterness in the finish. It’s pretty bad, but drinkable. GlasgowTAD (1778) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2017

UPDATED: APR 1, 2017 Can, 330ml, from a supermarket in Đà Nẵng. A pale straw colour with no head. Aroma barely detectable, but I think there’s some watery hop lurking there. Flavour has some citric hop, rice, some malt sweetness in the finish. High carbonation, but still watery. Not as bad as I was expecting.

330 ml can bought at Chào Chào in Whampoa Garden, Hung Hom.
Piss pale golden yellow colour; One quarter finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Fair stricky lacing with notable slight carbonation; Very pungent and cloying smell of lager malt, with strong starch, rice, unknown chemicals, wet paper, floral, sugar, soggy bread, lemon and smelly grass; Medium sweet taste of fair lager malt, with strong rice, corn, strong floral, strong sugar, bread, lemon , fair bitter hops and grass; Close to light body. Slick palate; Mouth feel is fair maltyness in a thin but slick background. Filling up with rice and corn (but not starch). Strong floral hops with pretty strong sweetness. Light bready with strong lemon to round. Iffy… Hoppiness is floral, lemon and smelly grass in nose, same in taste but stronger; Bitterness is fairly strong for a lasting, close to medium astringent sweet malty finish; Slightly dry after taste. Sweet and bitter to mouth.
Comments: This is a standard Asian Macro, but with a good body, slightly better maltyness and stronger floral hop bitterness. Its smell is pretty bad and taste sweet, but it‘s better than the French’s 33 Export and tolerable under Summer heat. I hold my nose when I down it.
Gift can, thanks K. Airo. Smell of starch. Very pale golden colour, foamy white head. Aroma of starch, paper, some malt. Artificial flavour. Mildly sweet. Soft, plentiful carbon. Light body. Basic bulk lager, and not a good one at that. Only good part is that there are no stinging / faulty aromas. Koelschtrinker (20388) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 4, 2017
