Poured clear and golden with a nice light foamy head. Smells terrible, typical green bottle skunk smell. Tastes better than the aroma would suggest. Carbonation is somewhere between light and medium with a lingering veggie/skunky aftertaste. This is your typical tasteless macro lager. I was given two as a gift and I’m not sure if the second will ever make it out of the fridge.

mmmbeer (1287) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle served in shaker (an additional point will be added to the overall score because I like the bottle)- poured a transparent slightly thin yellow color, medium carbonation, 3mm white head formed and tried to lace to an extent. Aroma of a light malt with corn and rice, and a touch of hops. Hits the mouth with a thin body, malt has some sweetness to it- at least it isn’t skunk!, middle holds up well, finish has a kiss of the hops. Not too shabby for my last beer before RBWG- give me break, I’m trying to quit smoking and anything near the sight of beer makes me smoke!

Lucky Buddha has a medium, white head and a just slightly hazy straw appearance, with little brown flecks floating about and a decent amount of lacing. The aroma (green bottle) was happily not skunked, but one gets sweetness, white bread, and a kiss of the hops. Taste is lightly roasted barley, bread, some paper, sweetness, bread crumb, a touch of pleasant bitterness, and there are other obscure flavors which I can’t pin down (honey?). Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Lucky Buddha Beer finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, dry, and easy drinking. This is a delightful lager. RJT

Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit. Flavour is malt, fruit, apple, hay. Boring beer.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours an average yellow with a nose of skunky buttered malt. Flavor is skunked butter, with light floral hops in the finish. Average mouthfeel. Cool bottle.

Novelty bottle was probably the highlight. The beer smelt and tasted too sweet for my liking. Small head, golden colour. Plenty of better options available.

Bottled in green, but remarkably not skunked. Impressive bottle. Honey malt aroma and flavor with very little to no hop aroma or bittering. Sweet malt-liquor finish, not overtly cloying. I’m told, it’s typical, even good, for a Chinese-style lager, as served in China. -Source... my Chinese in-laws. I’ll call it good, and it will fill the hole in someone’s palate, even mine on certain occasions. And I might even be back to it several times. Just not a beer I would drink every day. Try it... you’ll do your best to find something wrong with it...
