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!

Not sure why there’s so much hate for this brew. Smells and tastes like Newcastle. Finishes clean and quick.

Poured from a bottle. Hazy orange color, small white head. Rotten Fruit aroma. Watery rotten fruit and yeast flavor with a mute finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Skunky aroma hint of yeast, honey coloured no head, nutty taste not very pleasant. An oily palate that redeems itself by not lasting too long.

maekchu (2076) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 17, 2014
Bottle from Yamaya. Sour milk aroma, with weak orange juice and sugar frosting. Very light straw color. Flat and stale initial flavor, light malt (which gets harsher on the rising carbonation in mid palate). Finish is nearly flavorless. Thin body. Aroma is fairly foul. Flavors are not really bad, but there’s not much there.

Hazy, cloudy amber pour. Mild aroma. Decent for the class. Drinkable but nothing special

Erzengel (2561) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2014
Pale in the glass, grainy in the nose. The beer starts very watery, slightly sweet. The mainpart is on the one hand watery, on the other hand slightly sweetish-grainy. In the aftertaste smooth water, slightly sweet with the typical rice-beer-aroma.
OK, but nothing special. --> 7/12/6/6

(bottle - 330 ml) Clear gold. No head. Grass and corn aroma, seems to be a theme with the imports we’ve been having lately. Flavor isn’t much. Grass, dead hops and stale corn.

Honestly doesn’t taste like anything. I could put maraschino syrup in this and call it a shirley temple. Just kidding, kind of. Very very very light beer that honestly doesn’t taste like much. Compare to Coors, or other cheap lager.
