Excellent beer. No other beer in Southeast Asia comes close. Can be consumed warm or ice cold. Prefer ice cold. Heard the original brewers trained under the Guinness Brothers and modeled this beer on Harp, only difference they sourced the ingredients locally in Thailand. Not certain that is true but the beer stands out and I buy it whenever I see it all over the world. In Vietnam, where I live, I gt it delivered 5 cases at a time. It's carried by a single guy on the back of scooter.

Two finger frothy head on a bright.golden body. Scattered lacing. Aroma is very grainy, with pale malts rice and a hint of sweet corn. Flavor is very clean with more of the same from the aroma with mostly grains and minimal sweet corn. Not too sour although the finish is a bit bitter. Light body and high carbonation, crisp. Standard euro pale lager. No off putting flavors until the finish affecting drinkability.

Lightly hazed golden straw in color, fizzy cap of prickly bubbles. Light scent, lingering sweetness with lighty bready and grassy notes. Taste leads with sweet malts, as with the nose, bready malts and lightly grassy and faintly herbal hop notes. Light bodied, bubbly. Decent pale lager with nice flavor and no major faults.

Exceptionally clear, looks like piss in a bottle. Pale golden straw color. The head is thick and has good retention. Cloud-like and foamy.

There's almost no smell. I've got my nose to the bubbles, and there's just little to be found. Pilsner malt, but literally nothing else registers.

The taste mimics the smell in that there's nothing there. Slightly biscuity, pils malt and water I think are the only ingredients.

Since there's limited ingredients, it's fairly smooth in the mouth. No sweetness, no bitterness. Slight crisp finish with a light-bodied almost stale feel.

Overall it is what it is...a beer with no standout characteristics. It would likely save you if you were dying of dehydration, but it would be difficult to want another of these unless you were actually dying. Very plain.
