Very bland, empty bodied beer. Not for me!

Had this beer maybe 10 times this past month while on holiday in Thailand. I imagine that getting this in the US would be a much different experience due to transport. However, I imagine that locally in Thailand, bottles are fairly fresh.

Most of the time, this was drunk straight from the bottle. However, a couple times poured in glass, had clear golden appearance with a thin white head. Minimal lacing. Appearance is what I would expect from an adjunct or Euro lager.

Smell minimal and non-offensive. Not much here.

Taste was some malt, slight hop bit. Basic lager taste. Nothing outstanding but no major off tastes either. Despite being much higher ABV than the usual adjunct lager, the alcohol isn't particularly noticeable. Will have to try in the US to compare to the export version.

Mouthfeel thin with a bit of carbonation on the tongue.

Overall, this beer is adequate and widely available throughout Thailand. Also it is very inexpensive (something like $1 US at a restaurant). It pairs nicely with the spicy Thai food that we had. A reasonable choice in Thailand that works well with the heat...weather and food.
