look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

11.2 oz bottle with date of 11/5/09. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that dissipates relatively fast.
Light aroma of malt and maybe a hint of pine.
Very little flavor. Tasted like beer flavored soda water. Light malt and hint of bitterness that reminds me of tonic water.
Light bodied with crisp mouthfeel. Good carbonation.
Goes down like water because it tastes like water.

Pours a light orange amber, almost no head-although there are traces of white small bubbles.

Light pine, very light pineapple/green apple nose. Not real assertive but pleasant.

Very thin mouthfeel, almost no character.

Very little flavor. Short flavor of sweet malt and fruit but it's a flash of thin flavor and then nothing. A non existent finish. Not much on this one. (However, it has a very cool green and gold foil label if you simply want to save the bottle).

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is sweet and fruity. Taste is neither sweet or fruity. In fact it is a tad bland with some bitterness. Feels light in the mouth and has decent drinkability. Overall this is a fairly decent beer.

A clear yellow beer with a small white head. Looks like any American Lager.

Smells sweet and lemony with some grass. Basically this is mild smelling.

Starts out sweet and fruity. Tastes a bit like it has lemon grass in it. Slight amount of lemon here.

Light mouthfeel.

A very non-offensive beer. On the light side of most of the Asian lagers you might find at the local Asian restaurant. Nothing outstanding and nothing

Its a pale gold very see through. The head goes really quickly.

The smell is that of sweet grains and malts its clean but so faint you look crazy trying to get a smell of it.

The taste is very carbonated and bitter not at all pleasant. The grains do nothing to cover up the taste of alcohol that should not be present in a pilsner.

The drinkability is low, its gets a 2 because I can finish this but I will never buy this beer again.

Just to be fair, I have tasted this beer twice.

The appearance is a very pale golden hue similar to corona. As I poured it into the pilsner glass that was given to me, I noticed that the head almost immediately disappeared like it just didn't exist.

The smell was very faint, due to a lack of hops I presume. I gave it a few sniffs and didn't really get much from it.

When it comes to taste, the very first thing I tasted was rice (a cheap filler, adjunct) and a note of some kind of sugary (honey?) substance. The mouthfeel was that of a typical cheap domestic beer like bud light.

Overall, it tasted like Bud light with a spoonful of sugar.

You have to compare this to the beers where this is from, from Singha to Chang to San Miguel who brews them, this is not an american pale lager, it is a euro-lager. Based on that rant, this is a much easier beer to drink than the other Thai beers, but has little character. Light malty notes, zero hops, Singha at least has 100% malts so you get that there, but not here. Overall, nice packaging, easy drinking, but overall just average.
