Travlr (12470) - 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.

As a Taiwanese, I have to say itís classic, though not the best one. All in all, itís an ordinary lager, but more bitter than usual stuff.

EtTuCthulhu (1080) - 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 wouldnít go out of your way to buy this. When in Taipei do as the Taipeans do. average.

SDalkoholic (2156) - 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 itís 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

MrBeerFanatic (869) - Friona, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2013
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.

Oddly carbonated head. Powdered candy nose. Beer that you smell on people's breath. Super dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Kenwood Liquor. You know, scientists now say Europa, one of Jupiterís moons, has an icy surface 10 miles thick, covering an ocean 100 miles deep, which could have the ingredients necessary for life. And Iíll bet they make better beer than this. Despite the brown bottle, itís got a skunky smell. Perhaps I should consider it doesnít have a date and probably sat on the shelf for months, but Iím feeling too ornery. Hazy straw color, a layer of fizz. Taste is mostly of adjuncts, some rubbing alcohol, and a little bitterness. I feel like Iím done with it now, but thereís half a bottle to go.

Canned @ home, courtesy of blackipa. Thanks for the fucken Taiwanese dong, bra! Pours a bit hazy yellow appearance with a thin white head. Rice, zesty lemon, a bit spicy, sweet malty aroma. Bitter, quite watery, a touch citrusy, lightly metallic flavor. Bleh.
