Bottle from Solidfunk, Thanks again! Slightly cloudy golden color with a small bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Skunky from the get go, light sweet bready pilsner hints of earth. Sweet corn light non descript fruit. Not horrible, but really all over the place taste wise.

Had it from a can. As other beers from southeast Asia, clearly industrialized and lack personality. However, it is nice to see they have local brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

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.

Beerlao Gold
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.
