Sabeco Saigon Export

Every country in the world produces at least one beer for the population to enjoy and some of those beers are exported to other countries. In some Asian countries they brew beer with rice instead of malt. Generally these are lagers and they tend to be called rice lagers. But when you see a rice lager in the U.S.A we generally called adjunct lager. Any ingredients such as rice or corn are an adjunct. But not all-Asian beer that is imported to the U.S.A has rice. Some change the recipe for America taste.  This is Sabeco Saigon Export, 4.9% ABV, from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Saigon Export is one Asian beer in the U.S. brewed with rice. Saigon Export pours a clear, crisp golden color with a three finger bubbly white head that fades at a normal rate and leaves behind tiny whips of lacing that didn’t really stick around. I found there to be tons of light streaming through the glass and there is a large amount of carbonation bubbles racing towards the top. The aroma is much like any adjunct lager would be. There is a slight biscuit note there with a very faint apple like scent that was a bit different. Saigon Export has a nice crisp taste that is clean and somewhat refreshing. I found a nice biscuit flavor there with a very faint apple note as well. The mouth feel is light and refreshing with a nice very faintly sweet finish and an after taste that of biscuit malts and a faint touch of sweetness. Overall this is an average beer. I would say this gets a C. I found there to be nothing to complain about or nothing worth telling the world about. I think that Saigon Export is drinkable, crisp, clean, and refreshing. So go out and try Sabeco Saigon Export and see what you think of it. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
