Poured from a 33cL can into a Beerlao Gold glass.
Clear gold. Smells metallic and skunky. Completely disappointing. It's worse than normal Beerlao. Unexpectedly Sharp, whether from metal or some 'superior' malt I know not. The sweetness is never heavy, but so light as to taste almost sour or spoilt. The mouthfeel is thin and the finish mercifully brief. I don't understand why or how this beer got made. NOT recommended. I didn't finish it.

EDIT: I think the can is the culprit. The draft version is still subpar to the classic, and generally repugnant, but it is mostly just adjunct sweetness and sharp-cheap finish that puts me off.

Got a bottle at a mini mart in Vientiane. First time I've seen this after a week in the country. Apparently brewed with Saphire hops. From notes.

A - Pours golden and bright with strong carbonation. Two finger white pillowy head was gone really fast. No lace, no retention.

S - Corny, honey, really sweet. Lot's of corn. Seemed a bit mild but everything was unpleasant.

T - Really corny, oily, grainy. Quite sweet but not in a pleasant way. After some time it became more grainy, probably it's only redeeming quality.

M - Oily feel, medium carbonation, stinging corny sweetness in the finish lingers unpleasantly.

O/D - A fair step down from any other product carrying the Beerlao name. Don't know why this is so hard to find or why they even bother to make it at all. Not worth straying from the very beaten path of Beerlao and Beerlao Dark for. Got a little easier to drink and mellowed out a bit after a while, but still wasn't too nice of an experience.
