Exceptionally clear, looks like piss in a bottle. Pale golden straw color. The head is thick and has good retention. Cloud-like and foamy.

There's almost no smell. I've got my nose to the bubbles, and there's just little to be found. Pilsner malt, but literally nothing else registers.

The taste mimics the smell in that there's nothing there. Slightly biscuity, pils malt and water I think are the only ingredients.

Since there's limited ingredients, it's fairly smooth in the mouth. No sweetness, no bitterness. Slight crisp finish with a light-bodied almost stale feel.

Overall it is what it is...a beer with no standout characteristics. It would likely save you if you were dying of dehydration, but it would be difficult to want another of these unless you were actually dying. Very plain.

11.2 oz bottle, "Fill 060612" "Exp 060613" on label.

appears a crystal clear pale straw color, with bone white head. bubbles stream to the surface and join the well retained head. slightly sweet grainy aroma. not offensive compared to most pale lagers. taste is crisp, clean, mild grain flavor, slightly sweet. thin and fairly fizzy, but appropriate for the style.

overall - pleasantly surprised by my first Thai beer.

Two fingers of head.. big bubbles and quickly gone. Clear, light straw colored body.
Smells like rice and steel.
Nice taste. Sort of malty (for a lager), sweet, mild bitterness.
Average texture. Crisp and light body. Moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable, even better with SPICY Thai food.

At one time the BA profile listed what states and what countries a member had reviewed. I miss that. Nonetheless, I'm sure Thailand wasn't included on my list, so I'm giving it an unfair trial - it's a month or two past best by, but I think I can give it a fair shake. I"ll even pour it into a Reidel pils glass.
Doughy malt character with greenish herbal hop aroma. Yeast quality of Euro pils. Decent mix and pretty traditional.
Brilliantly clear, light gold, very white head that maintains a 1/8 inch cap.
Flavor is softer than than the aroma. The prickliness of the carbonation muscles out some of the flavors. Quite a bit of drying follows a soft but noticeable bittering. Soft malt flavors with a reduced doughiness. Hop flavors run in and out. They are nice and blend well.
Feel has a fair amount of fullness, but it's mostly from carbonation.
Solid and drinkable with good flavors and balance.

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.
