2.69/5  rDev +0.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Straight gold, very clear with heavy bubbles on the body (very heavy). The head was a little thing coming off white rising to maybe 1/3".

Smell: Sour hop scent almost wet hopped. It's pleasant but nothing new that will amaze you....scent comes and goes.

Taste: Wet hop feel that is straight light bitterness. A slight creaminess to it like a marzen, might feel a tad corn feel to it.

Mouth: heavy carbonation with slightly dry feel, coming off very smooth.

Overall: Not a bad beer, best enjoyed with a meal than to have alone because it's a very one dimensional brew. Most pilseners are, so I shouldn't be arguing. Hot weather with this and some good grub makes this much more enjoyable.

3.21/5  rDev +19.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Clear gold with thick foam and good lacing.

Smell: Grain.

Taste: Sweet and grainy. Corn and other light malts.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, crisp, not much of an aftertaste.

The Verdict: Drinkable. An easy drinking but forgettable beer that’s a slight step above the average macrobrew.

Had a bottle of this at a bar in Ho Chi Minh served by the nice beer girl in a tiny San Miguel dress. From notes.

A - Poured slightly darker than gold. Bright with a one finger white head that left spotty lace and a film of retention.

S - A little corny with sweet grain. Feel like I've written that far too often lately. Pretty typical Asian lager.

T - Not bad. Sweet grain and lot's of light sweet malt. A touch of corn, but nothing too bad.

M - Good carbonation, a light body, and a sweet clean finish. Smooth.

O/D - Not terrible. Standard and acceptable. Fairly smooth flavour made this go down well, but I certainly didn't think too highly of it.
