bottle from Jeremy. Very pale golden, instant foamy head, then fades fast. Aroma is wet paper, grains. Taste is sweet, minor citrus. Kind of bland, but not horrible.

I bought a bottle of Myanmar Lager Beer for $1.99 USD in Rosemead, California within the USA.
Look: Myanmar Lager Beer had a small amount of foam.
Smell: Myanmar Lager Beer had a magnificent fragrance of both jasmine and flowers.
Taste: Myanmar Lager Beer had a mellow taste of wheat and rice.
Feel: Myanmar Lager Beer had medium carbonation with mellow bubbles.
Overall: Myanmar Lager Beer is a mellow beer. People who enjoy perfumed lite beers might enjoy Myanmar Lager Beer.

Amber Clear pour into a pint glass with very little fizz.
Clean malt, corn and caramel nose.
Light carbonation, clean and smooth buttery finish with a hint of sweetness.
Overall, a very enjoyable lager with any asian food or on its own.

Pours a medium coppery amber with a slightly fizzy white head that dissipates slowly to a thin cap with light patchy lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt, a hint of caramel, adjunct corn, a tiny hint of grassy hops. Flavor is mellow biscuit malt with light corn adjunct sweetness, grassy hops. Flavor drops off into a light grainy malt finish with light, stale grassy hops. Light to medium bodied with a surprising light creaminess and sharp carbonation. Haven't had an adjunct lager for a while, and this one has a little more character than the domestic ones. The lightly grainy biscuit malt is more robust than expected in the aroma and to a lesser extent in the taste. It starts off fairly well, but the malt attenuates quickly and does not fully cover the more raw grainy flavors and uninteresting hops. The date on the case for this was late 2016, so this bottle is a bit old for the style and of course unknown storage conditions. I bought it anyway because the logistics of getting a fresher bottle in Myanmar are bit beyond my means. Not too bad considering the time in bottle and I suspect this could well be a step up from the typical Asian adjunct beer when it is a bit fresher. As usual with this style, quite drinkable, but unremarkable. Looks and smells much better than other adjunct lagers. A fairly painless way to tick a country from which I never expected to find a beer here in the states.

Straw filtered with moderate carbonation, topped with 3 fingers of white head with a corn yellow tinge.

Smells of skunk, malt, cardboard, and wet dog fur.

Malt, cream corn, clean linen, a hint of grainy molasses. Little bitterness on the end.

Light body, moderate fluffy carbonation.

Finally I got my hands on a Burmese brew! I couldn't find any on my Burma boarder runs, but now I found it online! Drank in Chiang Mai, Thailand, June 23rd, 2016.

A: Pours a clear medium yellow in color with moderate amounts of active carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy foamy white head that reduces to a couple of small to medium sized patches of medium thick film surrounded by a thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of sweet malts with a moderate amount of corn adjuncts and some light grainy adjuncts. Very light aromas of grassy hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of grainy malts with a moderate amount of corn adjuncts and an overall slightly stronger than light amount of sweetness. There are light flavors of grassy hops in the finish which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away in a moderate amount of time.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Lacks the watery aspects of a lot of Asian AALs.

O: Refreshing and easy to drink with only the very faintest of skunky aspects (surprising considering the fact that it comes all the way from Asia and is in green glass bottles). Nothing great but certainly better than I was expecting for my first beer from Myanmar, especially considering the number of disappointing offerings in this style from Asia.

Bottle at Kimono Rooftop Beer Garden, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Light to moderate aromas of adjunct malts are present in the nose. Bits of corn become noticeable as the beer warms up.
T: The taste has flavors of adjunct malts—corn seems to stand out in particular—and contributes a subtle amount of sweetness.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It's not watery.
O: This isn't a bad adjunct lager from Myanmar. It doesn't have any "off" flavors or skunk to it.

Does the trick a warm day at the border. Way better than anchor in Cambodia, but not as good as beer Lao in, well, Laos.. Great while still cold, tastes like beer and makes one drunk. Can't ask for much more.

America has its Bud. Myanmar has its Myanmar. There really isn't a reason to drink this swill unless you're in Myanmar without an alternative, which will likely be the case at some point since there are many restaurants that only serve this.

Had from a 640mL brown glass bottle purchased in Portland, OR

Pours a somewhat gree/gold straw color with a chunky, large bubble white head. It's quick to dissipate, but leaves an acceptable lacing.

Super skunky and metallic aromas of old hops and dusty tin cans mask more subtle and pleasant aromas of bran, caramel, honey, lemon, and oats.

Medium bodied and malty on the palate with some ripe fruitiness.

Poured from a 640mL bottle into a branded mug.
Two fingers of stark white head have surprising retention. The beer is clear golden with mild effervesence.
It smells...not good. Sharp, sour, vaguely both skunky and metallic.
By god though this beer is drinkable. It's like thicker soda water with a light sweetness and mild tang. Not the 'bad lager' tang, the aftertaste is surprisingly clean, but just bit of a bite. That said, it's a watery, more or less flavorless beer. If Drinkability were still a component, it would get high marks, but overall it's not worth your time.

330ml green bottle served in a small beer glass in a dingy little Burmese (Myanmarian?) restaurant in Takadanobaba area around Tokyo.

Looked clear golden, with a medium to big head. Head fades fast. Smells like an AAL, but with greater emphasis on pleasant characteristics like grass and less emphasis on unpleasant characteristics like ass.

Taste is a little sweet, not inappropriately so, generally inoffensive. As far as AALs go, it's not bad at all.
