Perfume River Hue Beer (7/10)

This beer was part of an International Beer Gift Box I received for Christmas.  It's brewed by the Perfume River Brewery in Hue City, Vietnam.

The label is very bright and colorful, and has a distinctive Asian look to it.

The beer pours from the bottle a clear, pale yellow with a finger-thick white head that lasts about as long as it took you to read the phrase "finger-thick white head".

The aroma  is fairly non-descript, like a traditional macro-brew.  There's a subtle hoppiness to it, a touch of rice-like maltiness, and that's about it. 

The flavor follows the rest of the beer.  It's pleasant, crisp, clean, and very easy to drink.  There's not a lot of complexity to the flavor, but there's nothing wrong with it, either.  I prefer it to a Bud Light, Miller Light, or other similar beer from the majors.

You can most likely find this in the Cost Plus World Market as part of their International Beer Gift Sets.
