Pyobon (1369) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2007
Bottle. Pale yellow and clear with a quickly dissipating thin white head. Mild aroma with grain and apples. Taste is mild, but less bland than many other local brews. The foretaste is fruity, grapes or apples, giving way to a grain and hops taste with a fair amount of bitterness in the finish. The palate is thin with quite fizzy carbonation. Its certainly not a great beer, but for a generic beer in asia its drinkable.

DubC5000 (305) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 28, 2007
Smells like apple grape juice, and tastes like a cross between apple juice and Heineken. Not much else to say... can sort of taste the rice adjunct influence, but it isnt altogether unpleasant.

Everything about this beer is just okay. The smell is okay, and the flavor. Its mostly dominated by hops and the finish is a little coating.

Delirium (662) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 Can. Pours pale-lager yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is actually somewhat interesting, with a lot of unusual graininess that I assume is from the rice, some fruity apple notes, and a bit of hops. Flavor isnt quite as interesting, and somewhat marred by an off taste, but this is still interesting for a pale lager, with more of a rice-grain character than most Asian rice lagers. Mind you this isnt a great beer by normal standards, but its good for the style and region---at least it tastes like *something*, even if that something is more cider than beer. Much better than expected, anyway.
