Poured from a 333 ml bottle. Appearance is a clear pale golden brew, topped with a generous dollop of white froth, which does not retain well. Aromas start off with floral hops, which dissipates quickly, followed by malt and yeast aromas - bread, dough and biscuits. Taste is lightly sweetish, mainly from the malt backbone, again biscuits, bread and dough. Overall mouthfeel, while light is very crisp and refreshing. A nice pilsner!

Clear golden color with almost no head. Aroma has some bright grassy notes and clean malt. Taste has some green walnut and other nuts and green vegetables. Medium body, quite smooth feel. Overall it's a nice surprise.

333ml bottle from a Rimping supermarket in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Nicely hopped, with a rounded floral and grassy hop character. Pilsner malts.

Crisp and clean. Light-bodied. Smooth, wet, approachable.

Drinkable, absolutely. It's a lovely pilsner considering its country of origin, but it can't hold a candle to the best German and Czech expressions of the style.

C+ / ABOVE AVERAGE

Bought from Don Quiote $4.59 12 oz. Light golden color, light hop smell, light mouth feel, typical pilsner taste. Nothing really special about it. Taste like a macro brew at a micro brew taste. If it was priced at Heineken price I would drink more of it, but not at its current price.

Golden filtered with slow rising little bubbles, topped with a 2 finger,foamy yellowish head.

Skunk and its not a clear or green bottle, malts, aspirin, glue.

Hay, dried grass, malts, aspirin, light bitterness.

Light body, thick foamy carbonation.

Sure, I like to try overpriced takes on common styles, especially if they are from 'exotic' countries. I'm not a dupe, or a beer snob, well not too much of beer snob. But hey, I am buying an 'idea' which is the same as everyone whether they know it or not. Got in Chiang Mai, drank June 28th, 2015.

Coedo Ruri poured from a 33cL can into a glass in Hiroda.
3.75/3.5/3.5/3.25/3.25
Hazy yellow. Effervescent with two fingers of head.
Smells zesty, wheaty, and yeasty.
It tastes fine. Light and vaguely bitter (or metallic?) with citrus-yeasty notes. A touch spicy. Surprisingly watery (refreshing?). A summery sort of beer advised to drink from the glass.
Glad I tried it. Don't know if I'd have another.

A very average Pilsener, not worth trying more than once.

Bottle served in a tall pilsner glass. Poured cloudy with very little head. Flavour was not as clean or crisp as would be expected with a pilsner, substantial unexpected aftertaste. Possible contamination in this bottle - unusual as othe Coedo beers have been great examples.

Clean and clear - 1" head doesn't last long but leaves some nice lace.
Grassy, herbal nose...biscuit/cracker. Grainy malt but overall clean. Nice dry mouthfeel - good shot of bitterness toward the finish, better than expected. A little pricey @ $4.50 per bottle.

Packaged on: 6/25/14.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is subdued with malt, grain, floral, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, earth, floral, and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but the aromas in this one seem to get worse the longer the beer warms up.

Serving type: bottle.

Pours straw with a small fading head.
Noes shows straw, light malt, sweet corn and cooked vegetables.
Some vegetables notes as flavours too followed by a little sweet light malt and spicy hops.
