imaragingbull's rating

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - APR 2, 2013
Bottle pours clear lightly hazed golden straw with decent off white head and good lace. Euro Noble hop aromas light graininess and lightly sweet malt. Light body, zesty carbonation good hop character lingering through. Finishes a touch unclean. Grassy hop character lingering through with a muddy grainy malt character

I thought it was delicious. Smooth,delicate,great. We had the pleasure to enjoy it in Vietnam and if possible We would continue to enjoy in Puerto Rico.

One of many pretty awful lagers sampled on holiday in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Served cold in bottle. Highly carbonated and with slightly grassy and spicy edge.

Cantabrian (1114) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 22, 2017
Can, from a store in Hồ Ch Minh city. Super oxidised, bitter grassy, flavourless, cannot find anything good in it. At least its not Thai rice beer.

33cll can at Hanoi airport. Thin white head. Clear golden pour. A bland lager.

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 :)

GoufCustom (1979) - HONG KONG - FEB 3, 2017

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 (7598) - 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 (20229) - 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
