600ml bottle. I’m not expecting much from this guy. Very plain bottle Poured into pint glass. Pours pale golden yellow. Fizzy white head that is bubbling away quickly. Light aroma of rice, grass and hop. Flavor is watery, sweet, and grassy. Barely there bitterness. Its really not horrible, just not "good." Better than I was expecting. Drinkable.

So, this is a beer? There is little beer flavour to commend it. Still, what flavour it does have is not objectionable. Maybe they could spend what they saved on the can graphics to add some flavour!

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

Bottle. Golden color with a small white head. Very thin and very light malty body with a thin palate. Very boring and watery.

What a great surprise to have this one (new country!) offered at a Vietnam Airlines flight between Hanoi and Hong Kong! Pours clear golden with a fizzy snow white head. Weak hop and flower aroma with a note of citrus - not a lot going on. Thin and a bit harsh in the flavor, light malt and some hop with a skunky note. Not very good at all.

Pours in into a light golden color with a white head that disappeared immediately. Metalic and skunky.

April 25th, 2012 - A regular shopping trip one day turned into an outing to the local Taiwanese market. It’s a well lit, slightly damp cornucopia of exceedingly fresh fish, vibrant greens and vegetables and all kinds of fun Taiwanese snacks, spices and sippable goodies. Somewhere near the check out lane I spotted Taiwan’s eponymous beer: Taiwan beer. For a buck a bottle I couldn’t decline the opportunity to try the beer that represents the whole of an island. Sadly, I don’t think the beer does justice to the social and economic richness of its homeland. It’s basically a terrible pale lager with a high fructose corn syrup laden cereal smell, pale and wan flavor and more terrible corn syrup flavors in the taste. This beer is, frankly, terrible and a diplomatic disaster.

Bottle from Kenwood Liquor. You know, scientists now say Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons, has an icy surface 10 miles thick, covering an ocean 100 miles deep, which could have the ingredients necessary for life. And I’ll bet they make better beer than this. Despite the brown bottle, it’s got a skunky smell. Perhaps I should consider it doesn’t have a date and probably sat on the shelf for months, but I’m feeling too ornery. Hazy straw color, a layer of fizz. Taste is mostly of adjuncts, some rubbing alcohol, and a little bitterness. I feel like I’m done with it now, but there’s half a bottle to go.

Hellgelb mit minimaler Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht malzig, sonst aromenlos. Geschmack extrem wässrig malzig.
