(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.

GoufCustom (875) - HONG KONG - MAR 31, 2014


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.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein hellgoldenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch unangenehm malzig, leicht getreidig. Geschmack sehr wässrig, leicht malzig, getreidig, muffig.

ScipioA (334) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 17, 2013
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.

AndreasJaeger (505) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2013
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.
