UPDATED: DEC 19, 2007 330ml bottle.
Golden yellow and clear with a medium, white and semi-lasting head. Smells like a nice lager. Grainy and hoppy with a bit of bread in the nose too. Palate is a thin medium, soft carbonation and lightly sticky. The taste is sweet with hoppy bitter tones and nicely balanced finish. Alcohol is very present for a lager in both the taste and aroma. Theres some skunky expired taste mixed in there too that I’m not fond of. Not a great beer. BelgianBeerGal (4158) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Bottle. Not something I would seek to drink on it’s own, but it was easy to drink with spicy Thai food. Refreshing if nothing else. golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Bottle. Aroma like a czech beer, and flavor like that also. Lots of those hop notes, some grainy malt, and a semi-dry finish. mistersinalin (381) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Went to a Thai restaurant last night and enjoyed some spicy food. This beer went well witht hye first course because it was refreshing, but as the heat of the meal increased, I needed something to stand up better. NJJereme (387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Pours a golden brown color with a large head. Not the usual straw color for most American macro lagers. More malty than hoppy and medium to heavily bodied. For an imported macro, not too bad, but nothing to write home about either. Offsets spicy Thai food (which is where I had it).

Not as thin as other asian lagers. Decent dusty hob nose, that turns into an ok bitterness in the flavor, along with a cornlike sweetness to balance it out. Hammster (187) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Bottle. Poured a very light gold with a nice fluffy head. I really liked the hoppy aroma and found it rather strong. Hoppy flavor that was pretty bitter. Considering this beer is from Thailand, I could see myself drinking this when eating Thai food. Not a good day-to-day but the hops would be nice with spicy coconut-cream based dish or curry. Not bad. cyrenaica (1159) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2007
330ml bottle Taverner (1103) - 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.
