330ml can, brewed by San Miguel Hong Kong. Pours pale golden with a rough white head. Somewhat sweetish aroma with grain and hint of metal. Flavour is sweetish cereal, mainly maize or rice, and hint of metal as well. The finish has a weak note of hops. Not the worst beer China has to offer.

Kolor: jasno ?ó?ty, s?omkowy, czysty, klarowny. Piana koloru bia?ego, do?? obfita i ca?kiem d?ugo pozostaje na powierzchni piwa. Aromat zaraz po otwarciu butelki pojawi?y si? s?odkawe nuty malinowe, troch? nut s?odowych, mydlanych z odrobin? metalu. Smak: no có? tylko metal i nic wiecej. Goryczki nie czu?em, wysycenie wysokie a alkohol nie wyczuwalny.

Drjohnrock (562) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Poured from an 11.2 ounce bottle at Christine’s Casual Dining on Harrison Avenue in Dent. Medium gold hue, aroma graded leniently due to my sinus condition, bittersweet flavor with a slight sour note, a little more heft than a typical US macro. Slightly above average pale lager.

Bottle from Josephine's, a Philippino restaurant in Charlotte Street near the Fitzroy pub. Golden-coloured lager with sweetish malts and very little hop flavour. Not offensive and quite drinkable, but not very memorable.

The_Osprey (3827) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2015
320ml bottle from HMart New Malden, picked up today. 5% BB Nov 2016. Clear, pale orange, lightly sparkling, small white head doesn’t endure, light lacing. Aroma is water, a little spearmint, air. Really not giving much up in the smell. Body is light, tingly carbonation, foamy. Taste is vegetal and tangy, dirty water, metallics. Definite dirt. Tonic water. Something acidic or lactic. Wow. One of the worst I’ve had. I almost resent drinking this purely for the Philippines tick. Almost.

jflopsu (857) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Pours a pale yellow. Has a grainy, malt, and pine aroma. A dry taste of grains and malts with some pine. A somewhat refreshing aftertaste, but still a dry feeling on the tongue from the grains.
