Small can. Pours deep golden. Nose is not particularly offensive, just muted apple and mineral. Flavour is Lots of green apple up front, pretty sweet but stops abruptly enough that it feels rice is involved somewhere. All the flavours you’d expect from the pale lagers around here but somewhat muted which makes it better.

33 cl can in Hong Kong, 5%, 0.45 HK$. Yellow color, quickly disappearing white head, gassy. Aroma is glucose, unmalted stuff, alcohol already. Taste sweetish with an acidic finish. Quite horrible, similar to brazilian Skol.

330 ml can available just about everywhere in HK. Got mine at Wui Lung Food Wholesale in Shek Wu Hui, Sheung Shui.

Light golden urine colour; Razor-thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Small sticky lacing and active carbonation; Quite pungent smell of malt, with very strong rice, light corn syrups, light bread, light lemon and faint grass; Light sweet taste of thin malt, with rice, chalk dust, shades of syrups, wet cardboard notes, light bread, and very light lemony grassy hops; Light body, close to watery palate; Mouth feel is typical East Asian macros with little pluses and minuses here and there: malt is lightweight but has a fairly okay feel, lots of rice adjunct, sweetness is thankfully very light, off taste is quite minimal. There’s even some lowly bready taste, slightly better than I remembered then and expected now… Hoppiness is very light but pretty lemony and low grassy in nose and taste. Faint notes of bitterness which contribute little for a void non-finish; Slightly dry after taste, pretty easy to mouth.

Comments: I remembered how I spent my youth on many freezing cold winter nights of yester years, watching Champions League’s group stage matches with big bag of chips on one hand, and a can of Blue Ice on the other, that was long before I became a beer taster and drinking it was merely a mean to an end. How time has flown… Back to the rating: this is below average because of so much adjunct rice in it and its mute chalky taste is numbing. Other than that, when being compared to many Chinese and Japanese macros, it’s maltyer and slightly richer, less sweet and hoppier, and mute off-tastes. Drinkable at sub-zero temperature, I am glad I’ve finally slayed this ugly dragon and move on!

Eructoblaster (3022) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2013
Can - 500ml. Boring blonf body with heavy carbonation and a quickly fading white bubbly head. Thin, bland malty/hoppy aroma with bready and some subtle, weird chemical/soapy hints. Its bad, watery taste carries metallic, wet bread, and rotten herbs notes. Ends with a short corny finish. Useless.

Can: Grainy aroma, light corny. Golden color, low white head. Flavor is malty, few grainy. Light notes of acid, metal, few grassy hops. Watery.

mansquito (3387) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2013
From my girlfriend’s parents who acquired a 4 pack of this in HK: Pours super pale with a frothy white head. Aroma is grain and barely anything mostly. Taste is much the same. There is a faint beer taste, but mostly it is like drinking dirty, slightly alcoholic water. I drank two of these pretty easily, but I don’t think I have any real desire to finish the 4 pack any time soon.

Sour, watery, only some slight reminders of hops and malt. Maybe okay if it's ice cold, so that you don't actually get to feel the taste.
