3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
As a Taiwanese, I have to say it’s classic, though not the best one. All in all, it’s an ordinary lager, but more bitter than usual stuff.

There is nothing ’classic’ about this beer. If you visit Taiwan, spend an additional few $NT and buy a bottle of Gold Medal / ’Jin Pai’ instead. It’s not very nice at all, and I never drink it.

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.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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)

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.
