Can from Tops Market in Koh Samui. No idea this was an SAB product, but ah well. Can says it's brewed for Father Joe's Mercy Center. There's my good deed for the year. From notes.

A - Poured a light golden colour. Bright with medium carbonation. Two finger white head faded to a film with a bit of retention.

S - Lagery, sugar, grain, sweetness. Not overly bad for the style.

T - Grain, honey. I wrote 'stinkiness' for some reason. Fairly clean all things considered.

M - Good carbonation, light to medium body, grainy finish.

O/D - Decent, unimpressive lager. Clean, passable, and mildly tasty.

330ml can poured into a pint glass by freshness date.

A:
Very thick frothy white head forms up upon the pour before gradually subsiding with good strength of retention and leaving plenty of spectacular yet everlasting lacing patch and sheet along the way down, the color is clear gold with low visible carbonation.

S:
Yeast, grain and somewhat earthy undertone.

T:
The taste is a bit dull by its graininess from adjunct cereal while there is some sweetness from malt. A hint of yeast reveals thereafter while there is no real hop bitterness to speak with. It is just a feel like ghost-like bitterness.

M:
The body is light with semi-smooth mouth feel and rather soothing carbonation, however, still crisp enough for zest the palate, rather dry finish.

O:
Slightly lackluster in term of aroma and flavor despite its appealing appearance. Rebuying? It would depend on an occasion but seem to be rarely.
