1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can in Hong Kong. Some small foamy head and a very slightly darker yellow than usual for a lager. soft cardboard & grass aroma. flavour is a light cardboard and bread with a dry finish. It’s some kind of variation on a bad lager that makes it slightly better than many Asian lagers, but still pretty darned bad.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Appearance: Transparent straw, white head is made up of rather large bubbles (CO2 injected?).
Aroma: Weakly floral/earthy hop and a bit metallic.
Flavor: Light roasted grain; a hint of sweetness and bittering on the mid-palate with some roasted grain on the finish.
Comment: Watery and thin bodied. Balanced in the sense that both malt and hops are lacking in equal proportions. The carbonation seems made up of rather large bubbles resulting in an odd head and odd mouthfeel. Possibly a guzzler on a hot day when anything would do.
