3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My favourite beer in Taiwan as it ’s easy to drink, available everywhere including nestled in the fishmongers ice displays at night markets, and it’s dirt cheap. Produces up a clear, yellow gold with a silky white foam that holds. Slightly weedy and herbal, green tea nose. Soft, almost creamy mouthfeel. Watery and drawn for flavour. Soft leafiness to the back with a medial bitterness. Clean with not much going on. Dry, powdered grain midpalate. A turn your brain off and drink kind of beer. (64cL bottle & 33cL can)

Can from Taiwan brough to UK by friends. My RB country #124. Poured a pale yellow gold colour with little by way of head. Vague aroma of malt and grass. Medium sweet with some bitterness. Light body, thin texture. Great to have as a country tick but that’s about all.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Drank during my Taiwan wedding reception during "gambai" where I had to chug a glass with a new uncle. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head. Plenty of carbonation. Aroma is slightly metallic, slightly corny. Taste is pretty bland. Carbonation lifts any flavored away and is pretty abrasive. Not as good as the gold metal.

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.

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

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.
