330ml bottle Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - SEP 15, 2007
I tried this beer on September 14, 2007 at ’The Beer Bistro’ in Toronto. The beer poured a dark translucent gold with a light whit head. The aroma was slightly malty with a whole lot of grain. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with mild carbonation. The flavour was very grassy. Not a beer I will buy any time soon (if ever again)
FORMALDEHYDE! Actually not that bad, but not hoppy, not flavorful. Typical Asian Beer - rice and malt. Sugar with carbonation and alcohol. RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2007
No surprise on the pour. Crystal clear with a small white head that quickly dies down. Nose seems slightly nutty. Flavor is slightly sweet, with that touch of nut that just shows up a very small bit. I also got what I thought was just a hint of apple that showed up and left in a flash. The feel is surprisingly high on smooth bubbles. Much more than I would have expected. Drinkability? Absolutely. There is by no means a lack of flavor and it is quite smooth. The semi-sweet tone might turn some off, but this is worth having once or more.

(Erfurt). Malty, some floral hoppiness. Pretty strong for a lager, but not that bad. mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Poured a light golden color with about a finger of head. The nose was sweet and malty with some grassiness. The taste was malty at first with a touch of corn and rice sweetness; a little adjuncty. The the finish was dry and had a bitter root hoppiness. Just an average lager.

Aroma: Straw, DMS, honey, malty sweet aroma.
Colour: Pale straw gold with a quickly disappearing head leaving small thin film of bubbles.
Taste: Malty, grainy, light astringency. Clean but lingering graininess. Alcohol coming through - warming and with low clove character. Low oxidation.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and slightly tannic. Prickles the gums.
Overall: I can imagine this is a good hot weather beer. Sharp and grainy it would certainly go well with spicy food. ABUSEDGOAT (2759) - California, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Clear golden, moderate head that diminishes, some lacing and retention. Aroma is light grains, not much else. Light bodied, medium to high carbonation, somewhat sweet. Zzzz robforbes (2243) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2007

glennmastrange (2870) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Bottle. Notes of grass for the malt and flowers and perfume for the hops. Head is fizzy white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is a sparkling gold/yellow. Flavor starts acetic and finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light, dry and has a fizzy carbonation. A mild beer very well suited to traditional Thai (crazy spicey/hot) cuisine. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007
