Excellent beer brewed under German technology. Great head smooth lager beer taste. Tastes best at a beer garden overlooking downtown Bangkok on a typical hot, humid day. Aroi maak maak. Tried it in Bangkok and other cities in Thailand, best beer in the country with Chang a close second.

Appearance - Pours a clear golden color with a half-inch thick, fluffy white head that disappears after about a minute.

Smell - Has a grassy-like smell to it, with hints of honey and wheat.

Taste - Very sweet.. I taste the honey with some hops and malts. Can't point anything else out in specific. Has a slight bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Very thin beer with medium carbonation.

Overall - I was surprised by this beer.. I like it a lot.

Boon Rawd.. the first and still the biggest brewey in Thailand. Malty lager herby and golden yellow abv 6% They brew it with german technology.Builded in 1933.I love this beer but it is more expensive than other beers in Thailand. It is worth the extra money.

Very nice lager from Thailand. It´s the beer of the king and it´s not bad, If I were king I would drink better. Pours clear pale beer with white foam head that doesn´t persist.

Appearance- clear yellow in color with beautiful small bubbles streaming up the glass, starts with medium white head that quickly fades to nothing, clear,

Smell- Corn, malts, slight hops, and grain, slightly sweet sugar grainy smell

Taste- right away somethings jumps out at me on this one that i really love, has a good grain flavor and has a bit of a malty sweetness to it but nothing to sweet that is overwhelming, slight moderate hops balance it out, I really also like the finish its crisp, enjoyable, and refreshing

Mouthfeel- smooth and yet light crisp and refreshing in your mouth, mod carb

Drinkability- Highly highly drinkable, a great session lager, I have to say I am sometimes hard on the lager style as I prefer ales but this one is good, I find something very unique and refreshing in this one, I'm glad i found this one and I think its one I will be revisiting

I drank this beer in Thailand when I felt like spending the extra 10 baht (25 cents) over Chang. In Thailand it is served in a traditional long neck (not the funky bottles for export).

A good light tasting beer, unoffensive in any way, but not particularly great. Very little color, slightly sweet, and quick to grow a head.
I shall always have great memories of drinking it on a hot day with some spicy thai food, or while lounging on the beach, or even in a thai disco. Most people who love it do so for the same reasons- not because it's a great beer.

It is the best "thai" beer, though Heineken and Kloster are bottled locally. You can get other various brews from abroad in Bangkok in certain bars- but you'll pay through the nose. Why bother- when in Rome...

Beware of the 6.0% alcohol- it certainly isn't present in the taste- it'll catch up with you pretty fast.

This is not a bad beer. I was surprised after looking at other reviews. It's good for this style.

Lots of Singha flowing in Pattaya, even the turmoil of the yellow and reds couldn't keep this great beer from being enjoyed.
A - Pretty average, medium gold with minimal head
S - Another less than great aspect of this beer but still isn't bad, you can definitely smell the hops
T - This is where the beer shines, nice clean hoppy taste, a little floral but really clean
M - Carbonation and a little trailing bite give this beer a great mouthfeel
D - I gave it a 5.0 on drinkability, this beer isn't the sum of its parts. It tastes great, the mouthfeel is really good too, and its so easily drinkable with just the right amount of carbonation, pleasing flavors and bite to keep you coming back for more
