One of many (over the years) bottles had at a Thai restaurant. Pours a light straw color, a bit darker than most adjunct lagers (this is all-malt), with a lot of white foam. Aroma of malty bread, some grassy/herbal noble-type hops and a whiff of skunk. Overall this beer is very malty, grainy, and bitter, with just a little residual sweetness. Sourdough malt predominates but there is a little hop spice and a fairly dextrinous body. There is a hint of apple but the finish is dry and bitter. A classic pale Euro lager flavor and much less sweet than most mainstream examples of the style. Fewer flaws as well, although there is a little metal and skunk on the palate. Great with spicy curries and stir fried chilli and basil chicken, and has more character than its countryman Chang.

Ap- pours a fizzy, completely clear, yellow color with about a 1/2 inch head with below average retention

Ar- straw, barley, tin, and a wee bit of skunkiness

T- not much going on here but it's surprisingly refreshing, has a decent sweet malt flavor, a touch of hops and overall tasty

M- light bodied and well carbonated

O- not a bad beer, I was expecting less flavor considering the lackluster appearance and smell. Much better than a lot of the other more well know euro pale lagers out there.

330 ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottle purchased from LCBO for $2.00 CDN

Appearance - Very pale golden color poured into glass and 1 finger of thick creamy white head is yielded. Head actually recedes slowly leaving good retention time. Tons and tons of bubbles are apparent. I can tell that the beer is very heavily carbonated without even tasting.

Smell - Nice light malt and hops blend, nothing overwhelming or ground-breaking here, but it smells like good beer. Hints of sweet and bitter notes can be picked up as well but the balance is neutral. There is a slightly weird metallicness on the back end of the whiff that is slightly off putting. This is unusual since it came from a bottle.

Taste - Tastes wet and refreshing, otherwise similar to the smell. There is a bit of sweetness that was detected in the aroma that comes through here. It's a bit too much and detracts from the beer in my opinion.

Mouthfeel - Nice level of carbonation to quaff your thirst that much better yet doesn't feel fizzy. No lingering aftertastes either. Probably the best part of this beer.

Overall - Wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised, especially by the way the bubbles tingle in mouth and on the tongue. Beer is pretty standard otherwise, but would work well with spicy foods in particular.
