RafeAU (395) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2015
On tap at NaruOne Korean fried chicken, Sydney. Light in colour, body, flavour, and alcohol. Malty sweetness up front - not in a good way - little bitterness on the finish. Yes, it’s crap, but it’s great for washing down Korean fried chicken.

Erzengel (5516) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2015
Can in Hongkong. Malty-sweetish, not too deep. Hints of grain, smooth-sweetish. No bitterness. Boring but not too bad.

StevieT (996) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2014
From a bottle. Not as bad as I’d expected, but I wasn’t expecting much. Malty (surprise) and smooth with medium carbonation, a bland bog standard mass produced lager.

ALLOVATE (2624) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 19, 2015
Light lemon, light cardboard, light urinal cake, light grain and straw on the nose - thankfully light! Brilliant, translucent yellow gold with an engineered white foam atop that daubs the glass well. On the palate it exudes a little Cascade citrus to its credit. Drabby, soapy finish with little by way of peak. Light bodied. Not much malt also. Rather bland but didn’t expect much. (35,5cL can, BB 11/03/16, The Good Food & Wine Show, Perth)

GoufCustom (1071) - HONG KONG - MAY 17, 2015


500 ml can as “Hite Max” bought at Wellcome Superstore in Sheung Shui.

Clear dull golden yellow colour; Half finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Small sticky lacing and very slight carbonation; Light aroma of full malt, with barley grains, faint floral, molasses, dough, hints of lemon and very light grass; Mid to light sweet taste of moderate malt, with fairly light barley grains, strong molasses, light bread, thin floral, very light lemon and shades of grassy hops; Close to light body. Slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is a all-malt macro Pale with moderate maltyness. No adjuncts (good) with light barley grains remains. Strong molasses and quite bready, very low floral and I swear there’s no trace of Cascade hoppiness can be found here. Doh!... Hoppiness is faint floral, hints of lemon and grass notes in nose and taste. Bitterness is macro level, very low for a mostly malty and molasses non-finish; Slightly dry after taste. Very easy to mouth.

Comments: Taste wise, this is at least better than "Hite Beer" because it has no rice or sugar adjuncts. All an all-malt macro Pale, this is fairly hearty and very drinkable, but don’t ask for excitements and the Cascade hops it advertised. It has none!

Ethanolist (10) - - DEC 1, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2015 Boring beer. Light yellow pour, watery taste, very light and dry body. It has unnatural malt aroma and other flavor is lacking. head disappears very quickly.

TedE (500) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2015
355ml can into glass. Nose is sweet sweet corn. Pours pale yellow with soapy white head. A few bubbles. A little zing on the tongue, a hint of lemon and that’s it. Maybe a bit of lingering sherbet. Not horrible.

500ml can from Merry Season, Xiamen. Pours yellow with a dissipating white head. Malt aroma. Thin sweet finish.
