Puszka 0,33 kupiona w Ho Chi Minh City. Lekki, nie narzucajacy się lager. Będę miał z tym piwem zawsze dobre wspomnienia albowiem wraz z żoną zostaliśmy poczestowani nim w zoo w Ho Chi Minh przez biwakującą tam rodzinę :)

330 ml green bottle bought at Cho Cho in Whampoa Garden, Hung Hom.

Clear pale golden yellow colour; One finger head and soapy white foam which last for 1 minute; Good sticky lacing with active small carbonation; Pungent smell of lager malt, with initial skunk (last for 2 minutes), barley grains, floral, light sugar, bread, lemon and fair grass; Close to light sweet taste of lager malt, with wet paper, grains, floral, light molasses, bread, lemon, quite strong bitter hops and grass; Light body. Thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is fairly good maltyness in a watery background. Not adjuncts but strong grainy barley with a bit of wet paper. Quite flowery, low sweetness, light bready with good lemon to round. Okay Hoppiness is skunk, floral, lemon and grass in nose, same in taste but stronger and without the light struck; Bitterness is quite strong and exact-like for a lasting, medium astringent bitter-sweet finish; Quite dry after taste. Malty floral and strong bitter to mouth.

Comments: Compares to Saigon Export, this one is more refined, with better maltyness close to a Premium Lager, no ricey adjuncts and a mean hop bitterness. Skunk is expected from green bottle but its pretty minor. Better than expected overall and very drinkable, quite an achievement for Asian Macro.

Had it from a bottle. Light beer. Not much personality, easy to drink. Industrialized. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml can - thanks beerquarius Aresh!
Sour fruity aroma. Pale. Fizzy. Sour, fruity, rough. Starchy, papery, leaves he mouth dirty - I want to scrape my tongue. 1.5 seems like an overrate.

Marduk (6996) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 25, 2016
330ml can (thanks Aresh). Pale yellow color. Medium size, white head, stays. Sour, starch, corn, papery and hop extract in aroma. Papery, corny, hop extract in taste. Papery and corn in aftertaste. So artificial. Nope, never again!

Koelschtrinker (19102) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 26, 2016
Heller, slich wrziger Antrunk, nicht unbedingt eine Aromenbombe aber gut trinkbar. Sffig, zum Mittelteil nimmt die Se leicht ab, die Herbe nimmt dagegen an Bedeutung zu. Getreidig und etwas bitter zum Ende. Okay. 8/8/9/8/9/9

malushky (125) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2016
330 ml bottle at Vietnamese restaurant. Pours clear pale golden with a lasting white head. Malty, decent aroma for a lager. Taste is typical for a lager, malty, rather sweet, no bitterness at all. Watery, short finish. Average lager.

I tried this with a Vietnamese meal at the Pho Joy restaurant at Thumb Plaza, Pudong, Shanghai. Standard gold-coloured lager with little aroma and a watery taste. Not much hop flavour. It is OK with spicy Vietnamese food but not very interesting otherwise.
