Can from a store in Kuala Lumpur. From notes.

A - Poured golden and bright. One finger of white head fizzed down fast. Medium carbonation, no lace, half finger of retention.

S - Reminds me of what beer smelled like when I was a kid. Gross lagery nastiness. Really corny and sweet and obviously adjuncted.

T - Corny, really sweet. Typical of a poorly made lager. Apple juice is very obvious.

M - Mild to medium carbonation, oily-ish body, light to medium body, and a sweet dryness in the finish.

O/D - A lager worth skipping or at least not pouring in a glass that's for sure. No real redeeming qualities. One to avoid in Malaysia.

633ml bottle in Chinatown, Singapore:
Clear straw to amber colour with a thumb sized, bubbly white head that holds relatively well before slowly reducing to a thick looking, patchy lacing on top.

Lager malts and some light grassy hops to go with them. There is some corn and a few adjuncts but this is basically a standard, unexciting pale lager.

Nothing to get excited about sadly. There is some light malts, some faint hops and a grass like taste along with some corn, adjuncts and water plus some bitterness. Light and faint to taste but at least it is drinkable.

Light, smooth and crisp whilst being very typical of an Asian style pale lager. Not a bad thirst quencher.

An average, Asian style pale lager that works well in the humid, tropical climate and is easy enough to drink with being anything special but as I found out, I wouldn’t say no to a second.
