Meh. Very bland and uninspiring. I greatly prefer the other Thai beer i've had in my lifetime: Singha. This one doesn't offend, but it sure doesn't excite.

Retailers have confessed to me they are stocking this one for no other reason than the college kids get a kick out of drinking Phuket beer. I decided to grab a single just to see if there was anything worth noting about it. There is not.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 11.2 oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: pours a thick, sudsy white head that recedes rapidly with little or no lacing. Color is a clear light golden with moderate streaming carbonation.

Aroma: smell is exactly like a Euro lager. Dominate grassy and pungent hops with some bread dough and yeast.

Mouthfeel: very light and crisp with a dry finish.

Flavor: pleasant bready malt and grassy hops, a slight citrus rind in the finish.

Overall: a well made and enjoyable lager.

A 330ml green glass bottle with a BB of May 2014. Picked up a little while back from a bargain store - bit of a random find. The label claims that Thai jasmine rice is included in the grist.

Poured into a stemmed pilsner glass. A clear golden-yellow colour with low carbonation. Forms a decent head of frothy white foam that lasts for a minute or so before dissipating. Aroma of cooked grain, faint malt and a whisper of stewed leaves. Vaguely sweet and exceptionally bland.

Tastes of ultra-light malt with a harsh, metallic finish. Notes of weak malt, faint cooked grain and acrid stewed leaves. A twinge of unpleasant solvent in the background, followed by a harsh, dry bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is thin and watery, with prickly carbonation and little body to speak of. Slightly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of harsh leaves and a nasty metallic twang. Not good.

Blech! Nasty stuff. Looks uninspiring, while the aroma is weak and the flavour is horrid. Body like fizzy water. Simply vile; even a nice pilsner glass couldn't do anything for it. Give this one a miss.

I had this at a local Thai restaurant in Champaign, Illinois and it was an okay beer at best. The beer pours pale golden, with a rapidly dissipating head, and high carbonation. It tastes bitter, with hints of salts, fruits, citric, and rice. It is light, does not leave much of an aftertaste, and is not filling.

2.6/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clear, straw color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of strong pale malt, slight hop, hint of rice, and a hint of sweet malt. Fits the style of an Euro Pale Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong pale malt, hint of sweet malt, slight hop, rice/corn, and a hint of metallic. Overall, average-at-best in every category. This beer was exactly what I expected it would be.
