UPDATED: FEB 7, 2006 Really not the best beer from China, but a little refreshing. Just a little foam, and the aroma was very hopy, but only.

Ha! Fosters in disguise. Well no better or worse that the muck served up here in Australia. Very pale gold in appearance, underpowered (so to speak), and the aromas are very much in the industrial beer mould; grainy bland malts with zero hop impact. More grainy, earthy malts to waste; quite unremarkable but I liked the medium strength fizz impact. Good for summer at least.

330ml bottle. Pours a pale yellow. Very watery and thin with no head when poured from the bottle. Malty aroma but very little taste.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled, pasteurised, 330ml, from Westholme Stores, Goring on Thames, Oxon. Pale yellow with fizzed head. Why did I fill my basket up with stuff like this, must be madness. Thin malty,tinny, chemical lager, the worst I have had in a while.There must be a market for better stuff than this in China.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2007 Oh, aren’t we lucky here in Oz, another Foster’s product for us to role our eyes up at, then over and lastly close to. Great commercial description on this site, though the bottle here doesn’t fare much better. It pours a ’pee’ yellow, it looks like watered down urine with a lot of bubbles keeping the puffed rice cereal aroma and sloppy, drabby white head alive. Bothersome to the palate, it is starchy and soapy. It yields a mild hint of chlorine, some lemon-grass, and maybe just a touch of bok choy - yes, a cabbage. Finishes off watery with a lengthy linger of salt and distant pale malts. The barely perceivable Pils-malt shows signs of progression as the glass empties but alas all gone, I’ll pass on another. This is nothing nasty, it is just a false representation of beer. China is one of the biggest beer drinking nations in the world. This is their Coors, as to our Toohey’s. Crap even before the first sip. (33cL, 4.7% ABV, 25/02/08, The Beer Store Morley)

Pale yellow in colour. Thin, weak, watery, bland and flavourless. I don’t plan on drinking it again.

Incredibly pale/clear yellow - extremely tastless and watery. Good thing it was a freebie.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Crystal clear and very pale.Not a lot of flavour , not bitter or sweet , rather bland.
Mouthfeel tending to oily rather than watery .
It is a beer for a hot day when other options dont present themselves

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled a Monk’s Café, Stockholm (Back label says "Shanghai Dragon", 4.7%). Clear golden, no head. Sweetish with clean, hard mouthfeel and light-medium body. Some syrup, a touch of paper, no hops nor bitterness. More powerful than most Chinese lagers and less ricey. Instead it’s unrefined and completely joyless.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Golden yellow with no head. Aromas are grain and light fruit of some description. Some hops, fairly fresh. Flavours are indistinct against all the carbonation. I do get some grain with that funny fruitiness. Very thin in character with a dry, metallic finish. Heavy carbonation. Drink soda water instead.
