The only reason I bought this @#$%* is that it’s country #46 for me. Never again will I have this.

Bottle at Cafe 8. Gold medal? Wow I wonder what the silver medal was like then... This a pretty mediocre cloying sweet and grainy brew, cardboard is there too. If you really have to tick it, then drink it fresh and fast paired with red hot spicy dishes.

Cannette 50cl de et partagée avec Tderoeck. Canned 27.01.16, BB 26.07.16 Dorée claire, col fin blanc. Arôme au nez de grains, et sans appel un côté riz, pas grand chose en terme d’amertume et houblon. Palais est doux avec un côté riz plaisant, petite douceur persiste en fin de bouche, touche fleurie voire herbacée sur la fin, de là à dire et vanter des médailles d’or, bref ....

The_Osprey (5487) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle shared at Leighton’s as ’Taiwan Beer Gold Medal’, 5%, BB Nov 2016. Brewed in Taipei and picked up in London. Dark yellow, clear, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is corny, light metallic, something almost like chili pepper. Body is light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is thin cracker malt, corn, watery finish. Pretty poor.

JohnRMurdoch (4197) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 24, 2016
12 oz can from Seven Eleven in Sunworld Dynasty Hotel, Taipei. Pale golden yellow, reasonable head. Cereal corn aroma. Corn malt flavour. Quite smooth for a lager. Not a bad example of the style.

Medium sweet flavor, sugary, with lots of grain, white sugar, light chemical notes. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary finish, with some bread, paper, cabbage, grains, sugar. Not great.
