Heavy 330ml brown bottle served in a pint glass. Best by date of July 2011, so it is a little past the 'best" date but the bottle has been in my refrigerator for some months and showed no sign of being over the hill.
Pours a light yellow straw color; clear with a 1+ finger sudsy head that quickly reduces to a ring and a small thin island. After a couple of minutes almost no visible carbonation.
Aroma: smells like corn or rice were used rather than, or in addition to, malt. A trace of hops. Not bad; but not promising.
Taste: A light beer. I haven't had an American light beer in a long time, so I can't really compare, but I think this would be a good one. ... rather faint praise, you'll note. Actually, there's a bit of flavor in mid-taste but it appears and disappears quickly, leaving a mild and short-lived hop-tinged lager finish and aftertaste.
Very light body with good, medium carbonation. Some dryness in the finish.
Not much to recommend this one, although it doesn't have any obvious flaws and works as a good beverage to accompany a meal.

Yellow golden color with a thin fluffy head with very short retention.
Aroma of booze, cereals and oxidized lemon.
Flavor of sweet cereals, cooked vegetables, lots of diacetyl and booze, oxidation and a spicy sensation. Dry aftertaste with a light bitterness.
Light body with good carbonation.
This is much worse than its local competitor Singha and also behind our local mass adjunct lagers. Awkward flavor with lots of off-flavors with a low drinkability. To toss it, a sin I at any cost.
