2.85/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Initially pours a very clear pale yellow color with a 1/4" head of tight white bubbles. The head was mostly gone within about 30 seconds, and was only minimally maintained by the few bubbles rising. No lacing on the glass after drinking.

Aroma: Very dry grainy and earthy aroma. There seems to be a good bit of corn in this one. As you get deeper into the aroma, there is a metallic note that is a pretty big player.

Taste: The taste is a little nicer than the aroma would have suggested. The beer is lightly hopped, so there is plenty of room for sweetness to dominate. There is a grainy sweetness that last the entire time, and into the finish. It ends pretty wet with a noticeable metallic flavor to linger on the back of the throat.

Opinion: Well, obviously this isn't my favorite beer, but I have sure drank lots of this stuff. This is one of the better beers in Asia, so when you are there...it is better than drinking some of the other stuff they have (essence of snake etc.) I can't knock the beer that hard because it has gotten me through some tough times, but here in the states, it is not one I drink with any regularity.
