2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from ericandersnavy. Thanks for a new country! It’s really gonna help my geostats map. Pours very light gold with a huge frothy white head. Typical light grass and grain aromas. Fresh. Near medium body with not too strong carbonation. It has not got a lot of flavor, but there is grassiness on through the finish. Best for dealing with food.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle in the VIP tent at WBF Durham. Only reason I bothered was it was a new rate and a new country! Straw yellow pour. Short white head. Aroma is that of light grass, soft corny notes, sweet malt and cereal grains. Taste is sweet malts, grassy hops, light honeyish flavors, cereal grains and light fruit. Body is light to light-medium with a fizzy, prickly carbonation. Ends with more grain, corny sweetness, light biscuit, grass and soft honey. Not too terrible.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle.
Appearance: Pours a very clear, pale gold with a frothy white head. The head struggles to maintain itself. Spotty lacing left behind.
Aroma: Nobel hops, sweet grain, a bit of corn, grass, and a touch of honey.
Flavor: Surprisingly bitter on the tongue with some light, sweet malt notes. Also a bit of paper, club soda, and grassiness. Really not that bad.
Palate: Medium, even carbonation with a light mouthfeel and a medium-short, slightly bitter finish.
Overall: I will be sure to try this again when I stop by Tibet. It really is better than most of the stuff by BMC though.

1.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Sckly pale yellow color, clear with a medium sized pure white head. Aroma is typical pale lager with notes of grass and wheat and some lemon. Overly bitter tang to the flavor, not hop smooth but dry medicine tablet like. Unpleasant.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Yellow blonde with frothy head. Saaz, lager hop aroma , somewhat spicy, but cardboard character is there. Saaz hop flavor, cardboardy, surprisingly parching through the finish. I’d expect something better, or at least more quenching if I’d climbed all the way to the rooftop of the world. Certainly not worth the climb.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye. I wonder if this beer is some kind of propaganda by the Chinese government to suggest pacific relations in Tibet. Anyway, a clear golden color with a medium white head. A sweet and fresh honey and malt aroma. The flavor is decent; sweet malts, grainy and easygoing. Not bad at all. Like a E European pale lager.
