From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue V:

Perhaps a surprise to the beer geeks, this beer is brewed with 100 percent barley malt, no adjuncts. Small beaded bubbles form a nice thick head with a little lacing on the glass. Filtered clarity shows a bright golden yellow color. The aroma comes off as pleasing with a sweet malt, grassy grain and mellow herbal hop mix. Crispness is right on target for the style, moderately sized fluffy body does flex a small creamy portion of leftover dextrins. Grainy but clean, more of a bready and feed grain flavor which is a tasty compliment to the kiss of hops. Bitterness is modest as the hops let the malt do what it does and coats the palate with a thin sheet of herbal flavor. Finishes semidry with a clean graininess.

The malt flavor and the stellar crispness does what not many lagers can, it harnesses an epic refreshing quality and maximizes drinkability. You don't have to be eating in a Thai restaurant to drink this beer; it's good enough to stand on its own.

As with most Asian beer there is that sweetness, it is not out of balance by any means but that sweetness is there. Super crisp and very refreshing. The mild hop bitterness is set for balanced and the graininess is not harsh at all.

All in all this is a great brew to pair with Spicy BBQ, spicy Tai cuisine would be the obvious pick.

3.68/5  rDev +21.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: 21 fl oz light brown bottle. It's a very unique container in that it tappers in twice going up to the bottle-neck.

Appearance: Pours a pretty hazy pale straw liquid with a large pillowy white foam head with meringue characterists, trailing the sides of the glass as it settles. Pour slowly as this beer foams up real quick.

Smell: Touch of sweet grain, metallic, alcohol and faint floral hop aromas.

Taste: A smooth beer with a unique rich malt sweetness and mouthfeel, like medicinal syrup. It's strong and the alcohol makes its presence known with a spicy and faint liquor punch. Notes of grain flavour follow then get leveled by a lime (touch of grapefruit) rind-like hop bitterness that peaks to a gentle sting on the palate. Finishes with some residual spice and a bit grain dry.

Notes: The perfect beer to accompany some spicy Thai food, or the like, but I could not see myself sitting down all night and drinking this on its own -- maybe 2 or 3. Although it is not that strong, beware as the alcohol silently kicks in.

03/29/2002 Notes:

Had this once again, but this time at Jae's in Boston to complement my Spicy Korean Chicken Lunchbox special. For a malt liquor, it's one of the better ones IMO. Clear, deep golden in colour with a thin white lace. Full-bodied, rich with flavour, albeit the flavour is near one dimensional, and just the right amount of hops to balance. Has a nice bready roundness that runs into the finish.

Highly recommended with Thai food -- quite the refreshing contrast.

This poured a light amber gold with a fat creamy head of white foam. Clear and had bubbles rising to the top. Lovely presentation. You could call it glorious. The nose is sweetened grain. it has a richness on the nose that is deep. A slight hop herbal grass to sweeten it. It drinks well. Hearty grain, dry and robust with plenty of depth and the hops are accents. They add some sweet herbal grass to the palate for definition and depth. The beer has a medium mouthfeel and is not shy. I would call it forcefull in it's malt stature. The malt is the drink. It's pleasing and leaves with a slight bit of dryness and maybe an earthiness that you could call bitter. This was made by a thai brewer who got his training in Germany and it's evdent in this beer. Tall golden liquid grain with a an enthusiastic and crisp presence.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Undated bottle at about 40 degrees at Thai restaurant into small glass
Aroma of grain
Head average (about 2.5 cm), white, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to broken 2 mm ring
Lacing none
Body light yellow, clear, sparkling
Flavor begins with sweet graininess, short lasting. Some dimethylsulfide noticed; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate light, dry, soft carbonation

Not a bad beer with Thai food but I wouldn’t recommend it with much else.
