Bottled. Pale golden coloured. Very weak aroma. Weak and quite sweet flavour. Watery.

BlackHaddock (3899) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
Jan 2007: from BA. Green bottle, 600ml, claiming to be a Gold Medal Beer, whoever voted for this beer was got at! Paler than a pale thing, on international pale day, this lager looked like Euro fizz, but even paler, light, no very light, almost a see through watery, urine after a heavy day of drinking Bitburger (you must be pissed if you think I’ve done that). Taste-less, aroma-less, mouthfeel-less, drinkable-less etc, etc. If I am stuck in an Island with a dead bloke and a crate of this beer, I would drink rain water before I would open a bottle of Taiwan Beer.

This may be the first beer that I am semi-hesitant to drink, but the can is so awesome looking, I have to give it a try. 11oz can. Rice lusted as an ingredient. Awesome. Pours a clear gold color with a white head. Aromas of rice and failed attempts at democracy. Blood on the streets. Rice on the tongue. Sweet taste with an industrial finish. Below minimum wage sweat shop workers. Tears. Failure. Shattered dreams. Apathy. Fuck.

GoufCustom (843) - HONG KONG - JUL 16, 2014


330 ml can as “Classic Taiwan Beer” bought at CR Vanguard in Nathan Road, Yau Ma Tei.

Piss pale golden yellow colour; Half finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Small sticky lacing with notable small carbonation; Fairly pungent smell of malt, with rice, light syrup, hint of floral, bread and very light grass; Very light sweet taste of thin malt, with heavy metallic, strong rice, strong wet cardboard, sourness, band aid, rubbing alcohol, faint lemon, bitter hops and grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is fouled and very harsh - thin malt to start, infected sourness, awfully strong metallic and wet cardboard, matched by band aid and fusel - Fuck!... Hoppiness is floral hint and faint grass nose, thin lemon and grass in taste. Bitterness is notable for a Pale, in a screwed up light bitter finish; Wet after taste, very harsh to mouth.

Comments: This is in a can and it’s fouled and infected. Metal, band-aid, fusel, wet paper and sourness, all hell breaks lose. An instant Classic drain pours. Never again!

Luvystypotables (696) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Skunky aroma hint of yeast, honey coloured no head, nutty taste not very pleasant. An oily palate that redeems itself by not lasting too long.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 2, 2004
12 oz can. Noxious faky sweet corn/spoiled cider nose; hazy amber with a decent head. Bad adjuncty flavor, bitter/sour finish, truly awful.

EKGoldings (526) - Radford, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2008 An overcarbonated, nondescript beer in the vein of the $1.99 6-pak beers available in the US. Heavy on adjunct, light on hops, as others point out, only drinkable when ice cold. In bottles when I’m eating hot food I’ve begun ti like this one.

Drank strictly for the rating. Thin watery and bland. However, I did detect some mild hop. It’s not the worst I’ve ever had.

Nutty. A distinct pale lager, but still not good at all. Very, very nutty. Maybe it comes from the rice, but it is a peanut butter aftertaste, but not in a good way and that is mixed with metallic flavors.
