A: Golden, almost straw, filtered with lots of fine carbonation, 4 fingers of whit foamy head.

S: Malt, lager, skunk (came in a clear bottle) a little fruity raspberry quality.

T: Malt, some good bitter hops just way too few of them, light bitterness, light citrus, light grapefruit.

M: Light watery body, little fine bubbled carbonation.


O: A lot of lager qualities in this one, light, crisp, etc. Sort of like a lager gone slightly ipa-ish. It does have some interesting fruity and hop qualities, just very light on them even for the style. Found and drank in Bangkok, March 1st, 2015.

Looks like a faint brown ale, almost no head, aroma was lacking hops but did have a fruity tomacco (yeah like the Simpsons episode) aroma that was enjoyable.

The brown ale comparison really comes out in the taste, this doesn't even taste like a weak English ipa, this is just like a mild brown ale. It is what it is. Expensive and disappointing. I used to enjoy these in the 90s, they were helpful in getting my palate in shape after drinking sub-BMC type of stuff in the early half of the decade (Meister Brau), but the more I drink of these lately, the more bland and expensive they come off.
