Got this in a can, poured it into a glass. Saw tons of floating debri in the beer, not good appearance at all. The taste is of putrid rice water and a weird sweetness is present, very idustrial tasting. The can design is about as appealing as its flavor.

If in Taiwan, stick with Coke--it comes in bottles anyway. Not a beer worth taking home, even if the catchy name convinces you.

A pleasant aroma upon opening but after that its all down hill.A strange mouthfeel with a lingering dryness.It claims to have won gold medals but were? Reminds me of Heineken-yes its that poor.

Pretty standard Asian lager, not much but a sweetish taste. Tasted it, rated it...enough.

Fairly plain. Reminded me of Carling, with the soapiness. Over gassed. Not much in the malting, or the hopping.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
