Bottle-Typical Asian Lager look, clear light/medium Gold. White head. Scent of wet cardboard, some sweetness. Vegetal, sweet, papery. Medium body, a lower end of the scale brew, even by Asian standards.

Pours clear and light golden with small white head. Aroma balances more to the hops than malt. Flavor similar. Not really that good of a beer, but compared to others in this region and style it isn’t too bad.

12 oz can. Light orange gold color. Small head. Aroma is malt and rice, touch of grain and grass. A medium bodied pale lager. Malts are slightly sweet with a touch of corn and rice. Mild hops. Kind of sweet and thin tasting, buy not bad for an Asian pale lager. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

DON’T get this beer in a can. Buy it in bottles. Make sure it’s not too old. When this procedure is followed, it turns out to be a pretty decent beer, especially with Chinese food.

So I got the can at Beers of the World. I hope it is a bottle conditioned can because I got a ton of floaties in here. The beer pours a murky golden with the floaties and a thin white head. Sweet yeasty nose of candi sugar and pears. The initial sensation is water, but there is a lot of funky sweetness in it. Spoiled orange juice, white sugar, copper penny and aluminum can. It does have an almost Belgian sweetness to it, but it just tastes clumsy.

Far and away Todd is right...this actually isn’t an awful pale lager. OK sure it has no true redeeming qualities, but this is definitely one of the better "staple, corn enduced" beers I’ve ever had. Aroma of sweet malt and rice, with a thick soapy head which nearly overflowed but quickly died and left a soapy mess in my glass. Way too carbonated, but other than that not bad. Sweet malty taste with slight rice adjunct in the finish. Dry but not menacingly disgusting finish. Light grassy taste and finish.... definitely nothing I’d buy again, but a HELL of a lot better than I could have expected.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 2, 2004
12 oz can. Noxious faky sweet corn/spoiled cider nose; hazy amber with a decent head. Bad adjuncty flavor, bitter/sour finish, truly awful.

Golden orange color witha small white head, some cloudiness...resembles a belgian white. Smells clean, light and fruity. Starts lemony with peach and soda water on palate. Not much else, finishes crisply. Tasty beer that far exceeds its metal can pedigree. Purchased in a 12 oz can at Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.
