I drank Harbin while I had lamb steak for dinner and I did not like this. I guess Harbin would get along with some Chinese food, but the beer itself is not very tasty. I felt like it contained some impurities which shadow the pure beer’s flavor.

Average pils beer, golden color and light taste, light on alcohol as well. Quite bubbly and goes down very well.

Some people might claim that this beer is thin and watery, with a strong taste of either nothing, or of rice and corn. It’s pale, it’s thin, it has very little hop, and i LOVE it. It works really well with simple Chinese food like congee and preserved radish. Maybe not what I would serve with peking duck, maybe not what i would serve with kung pao chicken, but with simple hainan steamed chicken it is perfect.

Very pale gold with nearly not head in its traditional China’s bowl. Sweet aroma and taste. Rice, light hops. Better than average Chinese beers.

600ml Bottle in Macau as Harbin NBA, 5%
Sweetish malty beginning. Strange chemical aroma, smooth but no depth. No bitterness on a neutral sweetish body. Boring.

I though it had a promising start then it turned out to be neither one thing or another, aside from cold. Bit of hops not enough, malt aroma, but not enough in the body, bit empty really. But it quenched a thirst.

Had this at a team business dinner on my first trip to China (Shanghai). Basic pale lager. Nothing special but it tasted just great as the team cheers’d me one by one!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Easy drinking session beer, nothing special, pours a light yellow with a small diminishing white head, earthy grainy aroma, what you would expect for a Chinese Lager refreshing but only just.
