Pours pale yellow with low white head. Aroma of light malt, hay and caramel. Taste is light malty and honey sweet with pretty much no bitterness. Average to lively carbonation.

Poured from a 450mL bottle into a glass in Hoi An.
Pale yellow with no carbonation and short lived head. Water clarity.
It smells lagery and really light and distantly sour.
It actually tastes okay. Crisp and light and clean, with a very mild sulfuric lager bite and a malty-dry endtaste. Perhaps it's my imagination, but it's like the yeast strain is actually noticeable-- there's a nice sort of spiciness and clean flavor. All in all, I'm happy with the beer. What a surprise!

Bottle at a restaurant in Can Tho. From notes.

A - Poured with a really fluffy two finger white head. Bright with a nice blonde/golden colour. Mild carbonation coming up. Decent rings of lace and a film of retention.

S - Mild. Got some corn and maybe wet cardboard. Nothing exciting there so I'm glad it was tame.

T - Corny. Sweet grain, medicinal, honey. Less offensive than it's big Export brother, but still not overly good.

M - Very little carbonation. Light to medium body and a clean finish with some sweetness.

O/D - Meh. Lagery and not unlike hundreds of others in the region. Nothing outside the box with this one and I felt like I knew what it would taste like before I started drinking it. Decent for what it was, but that wasn't all that much.
