Refreshingly subtle, the gentle hint of fresh malt with every sip of Macau Beer offers extra enjoyment.

This is one beer that I couldn’t finish. Its got a terrible skunky taste. The malt flavors fell flat. Hard to find, avoid if you can

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2006 The aroma is corn and apple cider vinegar. The appearance is light pale yellow with a tiny fizzy head. The flavor is slightly tart with a corn malt finish. The palate is watery. This beer has a lot in common with macro swill but at the same time it does have a couple decent qualities (tastes good with Chinese style chicken and rice). However, I am not sure that they are a sign of quality or even intentional. If Asian beers are your thing (tastes like so many others) give it a try but most people will find this a rather weak beer.

(bottle - 11.15 oz) Gold color with not much of a head. Aroma is a mix of bitter and dry hops, corn, and grains. Taste has a slightly sweet flavor at the beginning with a dry hop and malt middle and a very crisp and clean finish. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2006 (04.09.06) 355 mL can purchased from Carrefour department store, Guangzhou, China. 11oP. 4% ABV. Poured clear yellow with small white head. Average carbonation. Sweet malt aroma. Light bodied that starts dry with light malt sweetness and wood (beechwood?) flavor. Finished dry with malty aftertaste. No discernable hop presence. Tastes like a generic Chinese lager. Nothing particularly memorable about this beer.

2005 bottle (etched on the base) from Downtown Liquors, Somerville, MA. Drunk on 2/25/06. Decanting produces an initially two-finger head white head that steadily diminishes to a smattering of cover and eventually a ring. Light, peachy tinted water colored body is crystal clear with sparse bubbles rising. Initially smells of crisp lager yeast, light green apples and soft minerals. After breathing and sitting for a number of minutes, the yeast dies down somewhat and allows moderate DMS room to roam. Chickpeas, lentils, bits of cooked cabbage (though not really that strong) and a dustiness I can’t place. Flavor is full of vanilla-like dryness, some rice syrup flavors, touches of honey and tons of dirty water. Or maybe that’s just how water tastes in China, never been there. Not overly vegetal in flavor, however, but nor is it crisp. Some very light hop bitterness in the form of grassiness, mostly fleeting. Dosent smack of too quick a fermentation (though it probably wouldnt hurt to leave it for another couple weeks), but the water and DMS are bothersome, as is the extremely light body. Carbonation is quite low, not obnoxious or disruptive. No alcohol apparency. You gotta love these guys that talk about skunkiness when they are drinking it out of a can. . .

Can from Guangzhou. Not bad, not great Chinese lager. But really, at this point they all taste pretty much the same to me. Mild skunkiness, and metallic can flavor were the only things to distinguish this from other Chinese beers.

Bottled. Pretty good beer. Refreshing and tastes like your average everyday pale lager. Reminded me of a Heineken but without the qualities that I do not like in a Heineken. Surprisingly not skunked at all even though it was in a green bottle (maybe just really freshly imported and shielded by the black case it came in). Very light and drinkable.
