Oddly carbonated head. Powdered candy nose. Beer that you smell on people's breath. Super dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can @!Sunworld Dynasty Hotel Taipei. Pale golden yellow, reasonable head. Resin vegetable malt aroma. Vegetable flavour. Bland aftertaste. Nasty lager.

500ml can from a 7/11 in Jinmen, Taiwan on 17 Nov 2015. Pours golden yellow with a dissipating white head. Aroma of malt and cardboard. Sweet finish a little bitterness.

Bottle from Mitsuya’s. Clear gold with a small white head. Light grain and corn aromas with some grassy notes. Average carbonation with a slight grainy mouthfeel, but mostly watery. Easy drinking. No off flavors. Typical pale lager.

Gift from Wendy. Clear yellow, small lacing shite foam head. Kind of sweet aroma and taste, must be the rice added. Not bad actually. (Velp 201512)

Light beer with not much in the way of flavor. A little sweet and nothing interesting.

gyllenbock (7168) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2015
Can from a local shop in Taipei. Clear light golden with a white head. A typical boring Asian Lager. Thin and sweet with cardboard, light fruit and metal. Really boring.

ALLOVATE (2828) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2015
My favourite beer in Taiwan as it ’s easy to drink, available everywhere including nestled in the fishmongers ice displays at night markets, and it’s dirt cheap. Produces up a clear, yellow gold with a silky white foam that holds. Slightly weedy and herbal, green tea nose. Soft, almost creamy mouthfeel. Watery and drawn for flavour. Soft leafiness to the back with a medial bitterness. Clean with not much going on. Dry, powdered grain midpalate. A turn your brain off and drink kind of beer. (64cL bottle & 33cL can)

Grumbo (1109) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2015
Can from Taiwan brough to UK by friends. My RB country #124. Poured a pale yellow gold colour with little by way of head. Vague aroma of malt and grass. Medium sweet with some bitterness. Light body, thin texture. Great to have as a country tick but that’s about all.

Drank during my Taiwan wedding reception during "gambai" where I had to chug a glass with a new uncle. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head. Plenty of carbonation. Aroma is slightly metallic, slightly corny. Taste is pretty bland. Carbonation lifts any flavored away and is pretty abrasive. Not as good as the gold metal.
