Bottled 330ml. -Courtesy of kajser27, shared with him and Marko. Amber coloured, small white to off-white head, whiff of caramel in the nose. Toasted malt, caramel, light cardboard and caramel syrup with notes of grain and slightly watery finish. Not bad for what it is.

330ml bottle. Pale straw color with OK head. Grainy aroma with sulphury note and a touch of oxidation. Mild bitterness, quite sweet middle with a crisp finish. Nothing special but was fine with the Laotian food I was eating at the time.

Beerlao Dark
Bottle from a supermarket in Thailand. As another reviewer noted, this is greater than the sum of its parts. Light body, creamy texture with a hint of sweet citrus. Others may find this beer average but compared to most local beers here in Thailand, it’s first choice.

Thanks kajser! Shared with him and ogivlado. Bronze-copper body, off white lasting thick head. Empty aroma, vague maltiness, grainy. Empty taste, sweetish, vague clean maltiness, creamy. That’s it. Nothing else. Impressively light for 6.5%. Nothing great about it, damn drinkable, better than the sum of its parts.

Beerlao Dark
Bottle from H Mart pours caramel brown and clear with a short and quick head. With a mild skunky undertone the aroma is lightly malty in the way of dark caramel syrup and tootsie rolls and oxidized in the way of copper pennies. Light bodied and watery, sweet and malty with fizzy carbonation and a lightly bitter finish. This bottle was pulled from a cooler, but is showing the effects of age and transport and is not in its best shape.

Beerlao Lager Beer
Appearance: clear straw with one finger of medium white head diminishing rapidly a thin cap, moderate lacing. (3/5) Aroma: corn syrup, rice, grass. (4/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, mild bitter. (3/10) Medium-light body, lively to moderate carbonation, off-dry slightly sticky finish. (2/5) Maybe not quite “terrible,” but not far off it. Naw, let’s go with “terrible.” A sickly sweet adjunct mess. Drank half, sink poured the rest. Life’s too short to waste on beer like this.(8/20)

Small bottle in Mae Kasa, Thailand. Pours a coppery gold. Small head diminishes quickly. Aroma of grains, hops. Taste, grainy, maybe a little malt. Tangy with medium carbonation. Slightly more interesting than the usual pale lager but not as good as the dark. The usual bitter aftertaste.

Beerlao Lager Beer
After India, I was travelling in Lao. In my opinion, this beer is a bit better than the Kingfischer, of couse, it is just a personal opinion. It is a typical product from macrobrewery, drinkable, particulary with the hot weather that you find there. The body is yellow and gold, thin and white foam, regular carbonation, the taste is malty, some hop, watery, simple.

One of Asia’s best beers in my opinion although horrendously expensive here in Vietnam. Good lashings of malt, hops, apples and rice plus other assorted fruity flavours. Quite a refreshing, crisp beer with a bitter, yet moderately sweet palate and a slightly sharp after taste. Retains a modicum of superiority over the original Beer Lao and goes wonderfully with a hearty Vietnamese or indeed any heavy Asian meal.

Bottle pour into tulip glass from Manchester Wine and Liquors. Appearance is clear, dark copper with trace sparkle, minimal off-white head, quickly fading to ring, with fair lacing. Aroma is caramel malt, fruit, English hops. Taste is fruit, caramel, English hops. Palate is light-to-medium bodied, thick texture, soft carbonation, and malty, sweet finish. Overall, good for the style. Enjoyable but not complex.

Pours a clear brown from the bottle with bubbly off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of mild caramel, but mostly clean rice lager. Taste follows with a clean bitterness and mild grassy note. Decent for what it is, but probably not gonna drink it again.

Small bottle in Vientiane, Laos. A rather nice reddish brown colour with a minimal light brown head that disappears quickly. Medium carbonation. Sweet aroma with coffee and chocolate. Malty taste with coffee. Light and sweet.. An easy drink and good for a dark lager from Asia. The extra strength helps.

Sweet hop/malt nose. Pours light golden with thick white foam. Crisp, active carbonation with medium body. Slight skunk that the hoppiness balances out. Another good beer for the heat and humidity.

Much better then we would have expected. Tastes more like a craft beer then a domestic. Pours a nice dark black with a tan head. Smells of chocolate and coffee. Taste is smooth with a bit of carbonation, some coffee and chocolate and a bit of vanilla not bad at all! Had in the bottle.

Got it for the country tick. Aroma is hay. Taste is somewhat sweet with a spicy little finish, but it’s imbalanced on the former.

330ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour with a minimal white head disappearing immediately. Aroma is typically grainy but has some good malt character to it. Taste of typical pale malt, grainy, corn, some hops. Watery. Average. Probably better with spicy food, or on a really hot day.

Above average for beer from Asia. For the style though, perhaps just below average. There is some caramel malt and bready flavor in there, but the balance could be better.....with some mild sour in there. I would have had this out in Indonesia given the limited choices there....but not something I would really look to here. Decent strength though and worth the try.

This bottled beer poured a medium sized very fizzy off-white head. Transparent orange body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, roasty, sweet, and alcohol. The taste is sweet malt with some caramel, dark fruits and metal. This is a rather blah tasting beer, but is country # 47 for me.

Beerlao Dark
Pours a clear, amber-orange color, with a soon collapsing, bubbly head. Smells of grains, rustic bread and toffee malts, with an earthy, slightly perfumy note. Has a pleasantly light body, with a malty flavor profile to it, enriched by the beers bubbly carbonation. Tastes of a bakers chocolate, earthen foundation, together with a faint coppery note, which introduces more and more toffee to the palate. The toffee quality turns slightly sticky during the finish, with a refreshing, slightly metallic carbonation. Turns a tad one dimensional sweet, solely relying on the malts, while producing a nice earthiness, adding some depth.
