1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
(Bottle from Wine & Spirits Center, Guangzhou Airport, 5 EUR)
Pours with a brief head. Clear yellow. I thought I smelt corn
initially, but this has no aroma apart from faint cornflakes later on.
Fizzy and a half. Tastes of soda water, also in the finish, which
ends up as a generic weakish pale lager finish. A touch of artificial
lemon/lime flavouring on the tongue after swallowing. Not good.
I will finish this, since it’s mostly water, but I will swirl it.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330 ml can at abv 4.5% bought at Wellcome Superstore in Sheung Shui.
Pissy, very pale golden pear juice color; Razor-thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; Near zero lacing with fizzy carbonation; Very light pungent smell of thin malt, with traces of rice and grains, soggy light bread and thin lemony hops; Very light sweet taste of thin malt, with rice, notes of syrup, soggy bread, thin lemon and thin grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is on-average Chinese macro. Malt is very thin, almost resembles a Happoshu. Usual but light rice and grains, soggy light bread, and barely a note of adjunct sweetness. Because it’s light so the adjunct tastes are bearable. Just… Hoppiness is thin lemon and faint grass in nose and taste. Faint bitter notes, mostly watery-malt non-finish; Wet after taste. Very easy to mouth.
Comments: So Carlsberg don’t want to waste their precious barley for Asian beer market and they came up with this: go with the local trend, save your malt, put more rice, make it light and inoffensive. They managed the last two, at the expensive of fullness and taste. Better than a Happoshu, but that doesn’t mean much. I’ll take the regular Danish Carlsberg any day.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2013 Blah, as with almost all Chinese beers, drink water or liquor instead. Nothing off-putting but nothing really attractive either. Pale, yellow, watery, funky, sweet are the only impressions that came to mind.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
VAttnigt ljusgul i färgen, litet vitt skum. Doftar sodavatten, aningen gräs och malt. Smakar nästan ingenting, lite malt, gräs och känns mer som en överkolsyrad ölläsk. Metallisk känsla.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Clear, yellow, unmemorable head. No lace. Go home. Cardboard aroma. Weak, light gummy, beer malt flavor with a splash of hops. I don’t remwmber the finish, and the beer is sitting right herr in front of me, which means you won’t either.
