Bottle. Nice golden colour with champagne-like bubbles. Very thin white head that dissipated almost immediately. Musty smell, like apples in the cellar. Tastes of fermented apples, with a sweet lingering after-taste. Very cider-like taste. Heavy carbonation gives quite a sharp bite; again, palate is very cider-like. Overall, the beer was quite a pleasant surprise. I expected a flavourless Asian lager, but got something with very unique character.

Golden orange color witha small white head, some cloudiness...resembles a belgian white. Smells clean, light and fruity. Starts lemony with peach and soda water on palate. Not much else, finishes crisply. Tasty beer that far exceeds its metal can pedigree. Purchased in a 12 oz can at Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.

Can. Clear yellow with a big white head. Malty aroma, hints of citrus. Bready flavours, some citrus. Not bad for an industrial lager.

The flavor of the grains comes through. It's pleasant. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

Canned, tnx René!! Pours nice golden color, low head, somewhat fluffy. Nose is sweet rice. Soft bitter aroma, flattened grassy bitter aftertaste. Surprisingly nice lager from Eastern ASia.

Thanks to the Taiwan Tobacco and Liquor Corp and BlackIPA. I suppose this would be a great thirst quencher on the train back to your house after a long day of work in Taiwan. Fizzy, yellow, grainy, good. Slightly stale unfortunately. Finishes with hopes of getting buzzed, but not very quick.

can my roommate brought back from taiwan: cheap water lagery with some grainy notes. sweet corn and herbal tannins. I suppose this might be good with some food.
