500 ml bottle purs a clear golden color with tiny white head. Smells grainy. Aroma is slightly skunky with corn and wheat but litlle hops presence. Finish is slightly bitter. Body is thin to medium withoug too much carbonation. Nothing special or horrible here; just another inoffensive pale lager.

12oz bottle in a Taiwan beer glass. Pours light golden with no head. Aroma of pale malts, light hops, and some dough. Flavor the same. Light texture. A standard pale lager.

It comes in a nice bottle with a cool logo that says "Gold Medal", and "World Class Beer", but they could honestly say whatever they want; "The First Beer in Space", "Ancient Indochine Cure For Cancer", or "The President’s Favorite Beer". What matters though is the beer itself, and unfortunately it is kind of gross, and now I have a pint of it to choke down.

Thanks to the Taiwan Tobacco and Liquor Corp and BlackIPA. I suppose this would be a great thirst quencher on the train back to your house after a long day of work in Taiwan. Fizzy, yellow, grainy, good. Slightly stale unfortunately. Finishes with hopes of getting buzzed, but not very quick.

Bottle. Light gold with a white head. Grainy, slightly corny, with a little bit of a dirty grainy finish. Not awful.

Multiple cans and draft compliments of CK at the Howard. Yep, pretty much like every other rice made pale lager in the world EXCEPT I swear I tasted green tea.

Schnabelhund (70) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2012
Pours golden with a short-lived head. The hop notes in the nose are inoffensive and featureless; the malts in the nose are somewhere between hay and white bread. The flavors I found are starchiness, steamed rice and a little grassiness from the hops. It is somewhat bittersweet. The carbonation is soft to average and inoffensive. The finish is there, but characterless. This beer is not good, but not terrible either.
