3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I am sure this blows stateside but it is good, cheap beer when it’s fresh. It is very much in the European pilsner-ish style with a nice touch of floral, grassy hops in the nose--though it is not a pilsner by any means. It is nice and dry with crisp carbonation and a touch of cereal grains.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle at Sergio’s, Louisville KY.
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light to medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (wort, grain, husks), with a note of paper.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean, husky.
Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation.
A shameless country tick. Obviously kinda old but clearly garbage.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - small foamy head, pale straw gold color, sweet malt/corn aroma and flavor, very mild hop balance, pretty generic pale lager, not awful but certainly nothing special

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft/Can/Bottle various locations around Taiwan. I had this during my trip to Taiwan several years ago and cold it was your typical pale gold macro lager with a light body and crisp plain taste. Not sure if I’d drink this outside of Taiwan but inside it’s fresh and an ok macrolager, well as ok a macrolager can be.

Poured from bottle to glass. Golden hue with creamy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is cereal, corn, straw. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a slight sulphur finish. Overall this is a decent Pilsner type brew.

1.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
330 ml can as “Classic Taiwan Beer” bought at CR Vanguard in Nathan Road, Yau Ma Tei.
Piss pale golden yellow colour; Half finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Small sticky lacing with notable small carbonation; Fairly pungent smell of malt, with rice, light syrup, hint of floral, bread and very light grass; Very light sweet taste of thin malt, with heavy metallic, strong rice, strong wet cardboard, sourness, band aid, rubbing alcohol, faint lemon, bitter hops and grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is fouled and very harsh - thin malt to start, infected sourness, awfully strong metallic and wet cardboard, matched by band aid and fusel - Fuck!... Hoppiness is floral hint and faint grass nose, thin lemon and grass in taste. Bitterness is notable for a Pale, in a screwed up light bitter finish; Wet after taste, very harsh to mouth.
Comments: This is in a can and it’s fouled and infected. Metal, band-aid, fusel, wet paper and sourness, all hell breaks lose. An instant Classic drain pours. Never again!
