2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
350ml can - thanks to a friendly nun!
Pale gold, large but brief fizzy head. Orangy or lemony sharp fruity aroma, a touch of whole maize. Slightly fizzy palate, a little watery. Very papery taste, dry, ever so brief spicy ginger hint, some other dodgy tanginess, and tingly hop extract sensation for a finish. Improves as it flattens and warms, becomes more malty. Better than many a macro lager.

Blackout beer #1! Drank during massive blackout across Ontario.
Pale yellow, and fizzy. Pours big white head that vanishes. Smells faintly of hops. Bitter finish that doesn't linger on the tongue. Bit of alcohol esters in the background.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 Large bottle (1L I think), bought in Taiwan. Classic clear-golden yellow pale lager appearance. Surprisingly, I can pick out some green hops in the aroma. Palate is on the thin side, but finishes nicely with a very mild hop note. Better than I expected-- I wonder if this is because I had it in its country of origin (and maybe therefore it was fresher)?
