Light gold color with decent foam. Malty aroma for sure, piney grassy notes. Same Asian lager flavor is not distinctive. Dry finish.

Pretty standard Asian lager, not much but a sweetish taste. Tasted it, rated it...enough.

Hazy, cloudy amber pour. Mild aroma. Decent for the class. Drinkable but nothing special

Smells like apple grape juice, and tastes like a cross between apple juice and Heineken. Not much else to say... can sort of taste the rice adjunct influence, but it isnít altogether unpleasant.

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

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.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2015 Popular amongst the older drinkers in Taiwan. My father in law ONLY drinks this. When I arrived in Taiwan ten years ago I didnít like Taiwan beer. I thought it was generic and tasteless. One thing that I have learned over the years as my taste buds develop and my attitude to drinking changes also is that ...you canít judge all beers in the same way. Taiwan beer for example has a few younger brothers ( gold, 18 day, fruit ) ..all of which have a place in the market. Taiwan beer classic to me is a light and slightly ricey beer for casual drinking and for pairing with light food. It is not a stand alone beer that should be drunk in dimpled mugs ( like the 18 day ). I find it to be very thirst quenching and moreish. But it took me a few years to really understand itís place. This goes for most Asian beers. Please donít throw it in a pint glass and chug it and offer it has no taste. It needs to be put in a small glass and enjoyed in the right environment ( most probably a stir fry restaurant ). If you do want more body go for the gold medal or the 18 day. I find if you drink it in 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!

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.

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
