Beer Lao Lager

L.B.C., the Lao Brewery Company is, not surprisingly, in Laos.

This 4.9% ABV beer pours a pale yellow golden in color.  There is a tall head of pure white foam that leaves a medium amount of lacing down the glass.  The aroma is light golden grain and grassy.  The taste is grain, aromatic grassiness, and a quite bitter finish.  There is a slight sweetness before the bitterness finishes dry.  The mouthfeel is crisply carbonated, but with a bit of creaminess from the head.  This is a pretty standard outside of Europe take on a Euro lager, not great in way, but I do like the bitterness and the combination of carbonation and creamy on the mouthfeel.  It would go great with a nice spicy Lao dish.
