3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 In Taiwan it’s called Hokkaido Gold. Sweet and easy to drink. Sweeter than most malt beers and reminds me of Coors extra gold from days gone by. It is also cheap in Taiwan. I guess we aren’t taxed over malt like Japan ( most malt beers here are cheap). I really like this beer.

The can in Taiwan has English subtitles that say "Hokkaido Gold: 100% malt beer." Guess they didn’t use rice this time? Might have improved it marginally. Not bad.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Golden coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of cardboard, skunk, funk, grass and not much else pleasant. Light pungent flavour of malt, sugar, cardboard and a touch of yeast. Aftertaste is not much better with a lot of pale malt flavours, some cardboard, a little funk, a touch of sugars and the absolute smallest amount of hops noticeable. Overall, not such a great beer - pretty much standard for the course and nothing to get excited over. I sampled this 350 mL can purchased from City!Super Market at Two IFC in Hong Kong, China on 30-June-2011 for HK$9.50 (US$1.25) [Best By 31-December-2011] sampled at home on this side of the world in Washington on 15-July-2011.
