Pours a clear yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and a sugary aroma. Taste is much the same with a slight metallic flavor on the finish. There is a very mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer all around but it's drinkable.

330ml bottle, contact brewed by Schlossbrauerei in Hallertau, Germany. Poured into Leffe chalice, pale colour, clear, small head which didn't hang around long. Tasted malty, some hop content, could well have been Hallertau as this is where it was brewed. Malt forward taste, on the sweet side but balanced, hint of apple, wheaty finish. Crisp texture, well carbonated, thin body. Overall I'd say this was more a Helles than pale lager. Went down well, quite drinkable.

I had this easy-drinking lager in a Thai restaurant in Bonn, Germany. Beer has a nice color, but the foam disappears very fast. It's very drinkable, inviting you to go for more. It's a perfect match with spicy Thai food and I would recommend it in such an occasion, but otherwise would go for some German beer.

Poured into a beer mug at a local Thai restaurant.

A-Straw yellow in color. Carbonation is present. A little lacing on the glass and a white ring around the edge of the glass.

S-not much, malt and some wheat or rice.

T-Malt, wheat, some grains. It is a pretty average beer that was fun to drink in Thailand. It is the best option at a Thai restaurant.

M-Watery, refreshing to some degree, light-bodied and carbonation on the high side.

Overall-I like this beer because of the nostalgic feelings I feel from traveling through Thailand. It is just your standard run-of-the-mill mass produced beers. Sessionable, sure.

A - Pours a straw yellow color with a foam head that settles quickly. No lacing of note; slight carbonation.

S - By far thebest quality of this beer, there is an aromatic and floral scent with a bweetness of fresh honey.

T - Honestly it is quite bland. The smell did not translate at all to the taste. This is your run of the mill euro-lager.

M - Sessionable? Yeah. But so is tap water. And we wouldn't give that a "5".

O - I'll say it is overall average in that you will likely find this in a Thai restaurant and it may be the only interesting beer option. For that it works. But beyond that it is nothing special.

Boon Rawd.. the first and still the biggest brewey in Thailand. Malty lager herby and golden yellow abv 6% They brew it with german technology.Builded in 1933.I love this beer but it is more expensive than other beers in Thailand. It is worth the extra money.
