look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Crystal clear & light straw coloured with a two-fingered size, foamy white head that has very good retention, managing to stay without receding for well over two minutes.

Some light malts & faint grassy hops, a fair bit of adjuncts such as vegetables and possibly rice. There is a bit of grain in there as well & a very faint amount of skunk towards the end.

Grassy hops and some vegetable adjuncts to begin with and some faint lager malts. The flavour is basic but very nice. There is some mild honey and a touch of lemon.

Very smooth & very creamy feeling, the beer is light bodied and goes down incredibly well with a beautiful crisp finish.

Up there with the best lagers I have ever tried, it may not be quite as good as I remember when drinking it on the banks of the Mekong but it is still a great beer.

Another "exotic" lager.
Pours with a typical golden color, not completely clear but almost. The head is average and quickly dying.
The aroma is quite gentle, although I could point out some hops and grains (probably rice) as well.
The taste is similarly gentle with a slight bitterness (no sweetness here) and with a surprisingly nice bittery aftertaste - not watery.
A very nice one, must say.
