I had this at my local Vietnamese restaurant and I enjoyed its flavor. It had a solid amount of carbonation and wasn’t watered-down. It was grassy and somewhat sweet, but it paired well with the Vietnamese dishes, especially the cilantro and bean sprouts.
A pleasant surprise. Golden and malty with no carbonisation.Poured with a small head and had a nice well rounded mouthfeel. Lingering aftertaste. I didn’t expect a lot from this one but really enjoyed drinking it.
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 bottle: Great pale lager, don’t believe this site which has a mind boggling fear of embracing pale lagers. Has that sweet tamarind/something extra that Kalyani & Neustadt Springs Lager have in the very bottom of the bottle! Very distinct pale lager taste, crossing more into tropical lager. The wankers in love with words or strong flavours (i.e. brainwashed) , will overlook this subtlety and dismiss it. Hidden gem. Upgrade your Budweiser.
