look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A pleasant, refreshing and easy to drink beer, although it doesn't offer much taste. Lacks a bit of carbonation to really have that refreshing feeling.

A - pale straw color, clear with a very weak and quickly disappearing head
S - very gentle, mainly grassy hops, but not much of that either
T - sweet and grainy, not much to talk about here

640ml bottle in Koh Phangnan, Thailand (100 Baht):
Clear, golden straw colour with a thin, 1cm head that settles as a patchy looking lacing after thirty seconds.

Light grain and some faint hops on the nose with some very light skunk. There is some sweetness and corn with a faint hint of alcohol as well.

Lager malts with some grain, a few adjuncts and a very small taste of alcohol that was to be epected going by the abv. on the bottle. There is a hint of hops and a semi-bitterness with some grassy flavours and a bit of citrus.

Smooth for the most part bar the touches of grain. There is some alcohol but it is better hidden than I expected. Medium carbonation compliments a light body and there is a slight citrus tang together with a crisp and very clean feel.

A solid Asian beer and my go-to beer anytime I am in the region as it is so much better than the export version that makes its way to Europe and the UK. It's not outstanding by any means but it is a good beer with a nice alcohol kick that soon catches up on you once you've had a few.
