look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A clear golden brew that shows lots of bubble activities throughout and clinging to the sides of the chilled pint glass. The modest head is snow white but holds on reasonably and leaves similar traces of lace. The aroma offers a mild but balanced rice/wheat grain. Very clean, nothing unusual but fine for the style. The flavor brings fairly simple wheat and light malt with a rice-lemon theme and maybe even some sweet corn and a cardboard kiss. But it’s a light bodied beer with a fairly dominant carbonation that makes for a very bright, crisp feel. Very refreshing, perhaps overcarbonated and a little under-flavored. But adequate to wash down your Viet Namese chow.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall soapy white head that quickly reduces to a very thin layer over most of the surface of the beer and a ring at the edges of the glass. Light lacing is observed.

S: The aroma of this beer is just like that of an American Adjunct Lager rather than a Dortmunder/Export Lager. There is a heavy presence of adjunct malt sweetness - leading with rice and some lighter amounts of grain.

T: The taste follows the smell but underneath it all is a metallic taste. The flavor is dominated by the adjunct malts - mostly rice but also with a heavy dose of grain. The beer has a decent amount of sweetness and I get something akin to apple juice as well. There is some light bitterness in the finish.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Some very light dryness in the finish.

O: The slightly metallic taste is definitely off-putting in this beer and to me makes it less than enjoyable and not a sessionable beer. I do not want to have more than one of these, never mind more than one in a single session.
