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.

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!

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.

12oz can. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Standard lager but I enjoyed it less than most other lagers.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Extremely poor beer. Kind of taste like a shitty lager and tea infused with it. Very odd one. Don’t like it at all

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle: pours a light yellowish straw color with quickly diminishing white head. Aroma is almost non-existent, maybe a slight malty sweetness. Taste is very light, slightly grainy, and sweet. There really is no hop presence detectable, as it finishes with a light sugary flavor on the tongue. Carbonation is relatively high, body is very light. Really gives the meaning in the phrase "Beer is really just slightly contaminated water."
