Strange. Pours like a mild tea lager. Smells faintly of yeast, and tastes predominantly of mineral water and faint barley. Free Tibet!

12oz bottle shared by ArgoO. Hazy yellow-orange. Mellow cream corn, sweet. No real hop presence. Thin, oily head. Sessionable, but not even close to World Class. One dimensional.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
tepid gold, large-bubbled frothy white head. Creamy lemon, bit of pine sol. Flavor similar, muted creamy body, very paperish. Way too foamy, kills profile.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is a hay/basement mixture. Slightly cloudy golden color with a white head that settles quickly. Taste makes up for deficiencies elsewhere. Very smooth flavor.... mildly sweet. Light to medium-bodied with a oily/creamy texture. Soft carbonation, coupled with a long, pleasant finish. I would repeat this beer while recommending it.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
355mL thanks to argo0. Finally- a Tibet beer! The pour is a bright straw with heavy carbonation and a fizzy, temporary head. Nose is champagne like with cheap white wine. Much better than most pale lagers. Taste is metallic, grainy, light cereal but really not much there to like or dislike besides lemon Perrier. Big carbonation distracts. Not bad.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle shared by argo0: Pours a clear pale golden with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a semi-sweet grainy malty nose with a touch of corn. Starts with a mild corn sweetness with some grassy bitterness before a drier slightly peppery finish. Very bland and not something I’d even want to drink on a hot day. At least it’s not infected.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin short lived white head, over a slightly hazy yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is biscuit, toast, corn, dust, light herbs.....taste is slightly sweet with light cereal, minimal bitterness, finishing with dust....mouth feel is light, carbonation high. A very unremarkable and totally uninteresting beer. BJCP 5/3/9/3/4
