Better than the other Asian local lagers, drinkable. Best if cold. Hard to get 75 characters.

Can - Purchased at betel nut shop beside Highway 20 on the outskirts of Tainan. Nondescript, bland, inoffensive.

A pale lager typical of asian beers, this one is no exception. Light and watery, just enough hops for a little flavor. Nothing exciting here.

Slight hop and malt aroma. Medium modied, crisp, mildly bitter with solvent like chemical taste that lingers in mouth after swollowing. At 99 cents for a 22oz bottle, it gets the job done.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2012 I live in Taiwan , this stuff is ubiquitous, its metallic , ordinary , with a slightly bitter skunky aftertaste. Go for the gold medal if you have to drink tw beer. Edit : If you drink it from the large bottles or find it on draught and the pipes are cleaned then I really think it can be better than the canned version. It has an addictive quality if you drink it a lot. Becomes sweeter the more you drink!

Crisp and refreshing. Nothing to write home about but tasty on a hot day. Good carbonation, attractive golden hue, and just a bit of hop bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

So, this is a beer? There is little beer flavour to commend it. Still, what flavour it does have is not objectionable. Maybe they could spend what they saved on the can graphics to add some flavour!

600ml bottle. I’m not expecting much from this guy. Very plain bottle Poured into pint glass. Pours pale golden yellow. Fizzy white head that is bubbling away quickly. Light aroma of rice, grass and hop. Flavor is watery, sweet, and grassy. Barely there bitterness. Its really not horrible, just not "good." Better than I was expecting. Drinkable.

Large bottle from the Chinese grocery store. Cool post-modern label, too bad the beer doesn’t live up to its promise. Lots of carbonation, crystal clear piss color.
