jercraigs (9840) - Toronto, Ontario, - AUG 15, 2003
Blackout beer #1! Drank during massive blackout across Ontario. Pale yellow, and fizzy. Pours big white head that vanishes. Smells faintly of hops. Bitter finish that doesn't linger on the tongue. Bit of alcohol esters in the background.

Iphonephan (6200) - McLean/Jackson Hole, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2016
From a bottle. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Aroma of rice and corn. Flavors same. Pretty typical Asian lager.

A friend brought me a can of this back. Smell is grass. Taste is pretty sweet, even after rugby practice this isn’t ideal.

ogivlado (7215) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 25, 2016
Canned 330ml. -Pale golden coloured, medium sized white head that went away slowly, whiff of acidity in the nose. Distinct rice taste with notes of boiled vegetables and touch of grain. Only the memory of new country remains.

Luneylane (36) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - JUL 5, 2016
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.

Can @!Sunworld Dynasty Hotel Taipei. Pale golden yellow, reasonable head. Resin vegetable malt aroma. Vegetable flavour. Bland aftertaste. Nasty lager.

500ml can from a 7/11 in Jinmen, Taiwan on 17 Nov 2015. Pours golden yellow with a dissipating white head. Aroma of malt and cardboard. Sweet finish a little bitterness.

willisread (2455) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 7, 2016
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.

vipinvelp (3841) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2015
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)

liquidbread86 (157) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Light beer with not much in the way of flavor. A little sweet and nothing interesting.

gyllenbock (7772) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2015
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.
