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

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)

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.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.
