The flavor of the grains comes through. It's pleasant. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

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.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2006 Got no aromas from this pale yellow brew with filmy oil slick of a head. Itís flavor was soapy with lemon. It wants to be bitter, but canít quite make it there.

Very fruity, thin, but suprisingly good for a government managed brewery!

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

Bottle. Nice golden colour with champagne-like bubbles. Very thin white head that dissipated almost immediately. Musty smell, like apples in the cellar. Tastes of fermented apples, with a sweet lingering after-taste. Very cider-like taste. Heavy carbonation gives quite a sharp bite; again, palate is very cider-like. Overall, the beer was quite a pleasant surprise. I expected a flavourless Asian lager, but got something with very unique character.

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