This flavour of Taiwan beer suits me better, it's more bitter then the gold medal kind which most bars serve in Taiwan

Clear medium amber with poured head that quickly drops to no head, no lace. No life in appearance or aroma. Taste is bigger than expected, but the rice is noticeable. Nothying changes until a slight bittering shows in the finish. Nice to "capture" Taiwan, but the brew doesn’t measure up.

Bottle. Dark gold color. Medium head. Aroma is grainy. Slightly sweet. Taste is light molasses, hay. Better than most Chinese beers.

Travlr (13196) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Drake, thank you sir! clear golden color, small white head. Aroma of straw, corn, lager. Taste typical of most international lagers from non beer countries. Not quite tasty enough for me to want to seek out the Taiwan Tobacco and Liquor Corp brewpub.

Bottle from Bestway shared at the Baltimore Late Late Summer Gathering, 9/14/13. Pours a clear copper color with a thin frothy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of grainy, dusty malts, sweet malts. The taste is sweet malts, mild green hops. Medium bodied.

farside0812 (1) - TAIWAN - JUN 20, 2013 does not count
As a Taiwanese, I have to say it’s classic, though not the best one. All in all, it’s an ordinary lager, but more bitter than usual stuff.

EtTuCthulhu (1126) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2013 The aroma is skunky and has a hint of bread malts, and the appearance is a straw golden color with a small white head that is fleeting. The taste quite sour and mildly sweet, and the palate combines a medium body, slick and thin texture, average carbonation, and a slightly sour finish.

cold wet fizzy lager beer. This is typical asian lager. On a warm day this could be quite refreshing though you wouldn’t go out of your way to buy this. When in Taipei do as the Taipeans do. average.

SDalkoholic (2179) - Linda Vista, California, USA - APR 17, 2013
Bottle from 99 Ranch Market (Kearny Mesa): Liquid appeared as a straw blonde and a violent formation of fizzy foam which left as quick as it built up. Nose is grassy hay and other such adjuncts that does bring better aroma than most Mexican and American pale lagers. The drink is sweet with malts and reminds me of a light diet version of Malta Goya. Also has a faint trace of skunk but the odd thing about this is that it’s from a brown bottle and not a green bottle like a couple of Chinese bottled beers I have tasted. Happy with $5.99 for a six-pack since anything else from the Macros or Micros is almost $10 for a sixer. I just needed a few cold ones while watching the Lakers final game of the season on a warm southern Cali evening. Easy on the palate and highly quaff-able

Pours a light crystal clear light yellow/almost golden with medium carbonation. Aromas of grass, slight toffee, and light grain. Flavors of dry straw/grass and slight rice! Lightly dry and crisp. A very one tone beer that is unlike many pale lagers in the flavors. No grain notice just light straw/rice. Clean finish with no grain aftertaste.
