Big bottle from 7-11 @ Koh Lipe, Thailand. I can’t drink this all.. This is like cheap white wine. Wooh.. Not remind beer at all. 2 points for nice surprise when pouring this to glass, first smell and first tasting :D

Bottle, 640ml. A pale yellow/green colour. A musty, somewhat unpleasant aroma reminiscent of a Bangkok sewer with some sweet fruity notes added. Flavour has elderflower with some sweet, soft rice notes. Slightly watery in the finish. Flat carbonation. I don't know what it is, but it's dangerously easy to drink... I'm going to base my rating on the fact that I like it and on my assumption that better examples of the style must exist in Issan than can be found in the back of a fridge in a Bangkok 7-11.

Its main attribute is being cheap. What you save financially, you will receive back as a headache. Really, much more a light rice wine than what we know as an Ale or Beer.

Bottle from local 7/11 in Kamala. Pours clear, with no head. Aroma and taste of rotten, perfumed rice. Overly sweet, cloying and plain disgusting. Might have been the worst taste I’ve ever encountered.

Ghastly but cheap! More like rice wine than a proper beer. Powerful but thouroughly unpleasant.

I paid 33 bht for a bottle. After I took the first hit from the bottle, I dumped the rest into the toilet. It is so bad that the toilet tried to spit it out. The only thing that could be worse is, perhaps, dumpster juice.

Large bottle in Mae Kasa, Thailand. Pours a dirty white. Mild aroma of sweet rice. Overly sweet to taste. Low carbonation. Not a beer in the conventional sense. Too cloying for any serious drinking. Best left to the people of Isan.

This is not beer. It is rice wine from the northeastern part of Thailand. It is closer to Sake or very light moonshine than beer. There is no carbonation at all. I’m not sure this product should be on RateBeer at all, because it cannot be evaluated based on the criteria set for beer. Just wanted to provide this background info. If you’re into Sake, you might appreciate this, although it is a cheap, poor quality rice wine, with much better alternatives. Bought mine at Family Mart on Sukhumvit Soi 48, Bangkok, for 46THB, a little less than 2$ USD.

Bottle from a Bangkok 7-11. Poured a almost clear, water like with no life at all. The aroma is sweet, grainy. The flavour is strong sweet with a sweet grainy, rice, malt, apple palate. Light bodied with flat carbonation. Way to sweet for me. Pretty much undrinkable.
