1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear golden coloured body with a very thin white head. Aroma of pale malt, rice, a touch of light metal and bitter assertive medicinal quality and very little else. Light-bodied; Pungent, strong metallic flavour at first gives way to a malty taste with a bit of rice and a little sweetness coming through the slightest hint of citrus. Aftertaste is fairly bland and watery with not much going on at all. Overall, a fairly standard beer over here with some subdued flavours, but some rather potent metallic and bitter flavours to finish it off. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased in Shanghai, PRC in March 2005 (Restaurant) and August 2007 (Convenience Store).

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Für die Region Shanghai gebraut. Im Vergleich mit dem vorher getesteten Suntory 8° ist das 10 gradige etwas herber und auch etwas fruchtig. Der hopfige Nachgeschmack mit malzigem Unterton ist im Vergleich zum 8° ein Meilenstein! Dennoch ist es immernoch zu mild, wenigstens lassen sich hier Aromen erkennen...

From 660ml bottle in Shanghai, certainly a better option than the local water. Pour was pale golden with an ok initial head that dissipated toward nothing as we boiled away lamb, beef, duck, potatoes, yams, and dumplings. Aroma was rice, some corn, oxidized notes. The flavor was sweet rice and corn, weak in flavor, but more flavored than water. In fact, I normally tell folks I’d rather have water than waste the liver on this stuff, but that implies you have the option of clean water, so this was clearly the better option in this case!

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Light yellow colored with little white head. Cardboard and lemon in aroma. Thin bodied. Flavor is even more cardboardy with skunky notes, lemon also here. Round ending, poor effort.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Light yellow. No head. No real carbonation. Fairly grainy with a hint of sulphur. Grainy, fairly sour in the finish.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Uninteresting from beginning to end. Pale color, little head, no lace; just ugly. Nose of rice and grain without a trace of hops. Taste of rice, with little hops. Just thin, slightly caloric water. Not a bad thing to drink in the Chinese outback if the water scares you ... but certainly worse than the local Chinese Tsing Tao draft.

Can. Pale straw, scant white head. Flavorless. Unremarkable. Slight bitter finish. Forget it.

Can. A light golden beer with a white head. Both the aroma and flavor are skunky from the brewing cereal - is it rice, but also with a malt accent. The brewing cereal giving it a light body. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.
