On-tap served in an Asahi Super Dry mug at the Tomato Noodle, Bangkok.

The beer comes with an attractive showcase by a clear golden yellow hue with medium carbonation and long lasting thick white head that yields splendid lace along the way down. The aroma is rather faint by a hint of grainy malt and hop while the taste that dominates by sweet grain could be decently matched with a spicy cuisine. Hop character is mute and just silently manifests with a quick snap of subtle bitterness.

This is not too bad overall with lively, dry, crisp and super smooth mouthfeel by the way.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a lighter golden color with a two finger white head. The head fades very fast to leave only a very light patchy lacing.

Smell – The aroma is malty with notes of rice. With these aromas is a very light citrus hop aroma.

Taste – The flavor begins with a light sweetness and a malty flavor. The flavors up front are a mixed with some notes of a mild rice flavor. As the taste advances some more sweetness of a more sweet light caramel and corn flavor comes to the tongue. These sweeter flavors then begin to die down again more toward the end, where some light hop flavors come in to the taste and with the drying out of the sweetness, they combined to leave a crisper taste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is moderate in thickness and smoothness with a carbonation level that is a little above average. Rather appropriate for the style and makes it more refreshing.

Overall – A fairly standard lager style for the most part. Quite easy to drink, non-offensive, but nothing with tons of flavor.
