Bottle. Pours a very clear and very effervescent light yellow color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is light, and smells of stale corn. Taste is corn and quite lager-ish, and only moderately skunky. Not as bad as I feared, but that’s not saying much.

A funny beer I had in Taiwan, a pale lager with no specific differences compared to other pale lagers.

czlowiekwiadro (217) - POLAND - JUL 18, 2014
bardzo silny zapach zielonej butelki, skunks, lekkie wymioty, ale pozytywnie. kolor bardzo jasny, słomkowy, piany brak. w smaku woda z lekkimi ogonkami z jabłek. dziwne uczucie na języku, jakby posmarować kremem. pijalne, ale nic poza tym.

330 ml can bought at CR Vanguard in Nathan Road, Yau Ma Tei.

Piss pale golden yellow colour; Half finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 40 seconds; Small sticky lacing with notable slight carbonation; Aroma of light malt, with rice, strong wet cardboard, soggy bread, hint of lemon and thin grass; Light sweet taste of light malt, with strong wet cardboard, light rice, grains, light molasses, light bread, light lemon and faint bitter grassy hops; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is fair light maltyness, light rice, very low sweetness, light breadyness, but all are ruined by strong wet cardboard. Without that it would have been quite decent… Hoppiness is thin lemon and grass in nose and taste. Faint bitterness for a mostly malty low-bitter non-finish; Wet after taste, Easy but papery to mouth.

Comments: This is way better than the fouled Classic Taiwan Beer I had last night, only the strong wet cardboard stands in the way from being a decent Asian macro Pale. Stick with their fruit beers is a safer, if not tastier, bet.

BOTTLE 33CL from dcmchew. Thanks, Cristian Mihai. Look: clear pale straw, white frothy head. Aroma: ugly old grains, corn, tomatoes. Taste: same as aroma.

Utter crap.

Bottle in Kenting. Somewhat boring lager. Similar to Tsingtao but sweeter and less assertive.
