2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle bought at YATA in Grand Century Place, Mong Kok.
Translucent light dayglo yellow colour with dirt like yeast sediments; One finger head and soapy white foam which last for about 40 seconds; Small sticky lacing with notable soft carbonation; Quite pungent smell of lager malt, with bread, yeast, light rubber, faint lemon and light grass; Light sweet taste of malt, with dry biscuits, light dough, yeast, molasses, faint lemon and light grass; Mid to Light body, thin to watery palate; Mouth feel is a fairly malty lager despite the thin body, with good dryish bread and yeasty taste and slight hint of sweetness; Hoppiness is very faint lemon and light grass in nose and taste, and barely detectable hops and almost no bitterness; Dry finish and after taste, very easy to mouth.
Comments: Been thinking about it as an Ale, but ending up getting a thin but malty lager disguises as a Blond. Besides that weird dayglo colour, this is just a solid and straight forward beer, easy to go down, nothing stand out and no surprises. Actually, there is, my first tick for this country!

On-tap. Pours clear golden with a decent white head. Faint aroma of sweet fruits, citrus and some malt. Taste - very light flavors, light sweetness, hints of malts and citrus fruits in the background, dry finish. Light-body, medium carbonation. Drinkable, but pretty simple.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very pale with a white foamy head. Light aroma of yeast and citrus. Light flavor off malt citrus, and a bit of hops that carry into the palate. High carbonation and high drinkability make up somewhat for the lightness of flavor.
