Fairly clean lager, soap bubbly head, somewhat dry, tastes of malt and bread with no off flavors, rice. Very light on hops but floral.

Pours pale golden, head dissipates quickly. Smells of grass, cannabis, metal and skunk. The flavor follows the nose. The carbonation is lively and crisp. The finish has no character. I wonder if this bottle is too old; I bought it two days ago. Regular Taiwan Beer is more pleasant than this.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2012 Better than the standard fair and just edges out the gold. I find this stuff is more gassy than itís brothers hence maybe is more for general drinking than for eating ( although again like all TW beer it goes with food) . Itís hoppy and crisp with a ricey edge to it, the finish is mildly bitter. Like another guy mentioned itís rare in Taiwan comparatively but is sold in Wellcome outlets. I canít help thinking TW beer copied Heineken on most counts which is sad as this beer is probably better.

Oakes (12809) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2010
Draft @ Taoyuan airport food court. Greenish-straw colour. Thick artificial foam that falls. Slow-moving bubbles. The aroma is strawlike, with light green apple notes and maybe some vague higher alcohols. Thin. Greenish notes, with hints of straw and not much else. Ah, random Asian swill, how Iíve missed thee.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2010
Draft @ Taipei airport. Clear greenish-yellow but decent head stability. Aroma is decent with fresh grain and floral hop accents. Thin palate. Sweet with green apple tartness. Not the worst beer, has a good floral hop dryness.

This is a damn good beer when fresh out of the Taiwan beer factory at their pub in Taipei . Great beer when eating , wich I have said before Taiwan beer is made to eat with . Whats this baloney about cloudy beer? I have lived in Taiwan for 10 years and not once have I gotten a cloudy beer, or flat for that matter.

Not very widely available in Taiwan, very sporadic appearance in stores and restaurants. Appearance is typical pale lager. Aroma is herbal and aromatic. But there is a very tiny hint of sulpher that put me off a bit. Thin, very carbonated. Flavor: Rice dominates. Very weak traces of malt. There is some hop bitterness. The hop flavor is oily and herbal. Apparently the "draft" indicates that this is a very fresh beer. The beer was brewed 8 days before I drank it and it expires in another 6 days, according to the dates on the cap.

Bov (9876) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 17, 2003
yellow colour, few head, slightly cloudy, some herbs and few hops in the nose, medium-bodied, tart with a dry and slightly sour herbal finish - just acceptable

omhper (20166) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2002
Bottled. Pale yellow with very little head. Adjunct aroma. Soft mouthfeel, obvious rice flavour, light bodied and sweet with just a trace of bitterness. Sadly the best Taiwanese beer available in stores...

Bottle. A smoother version of the regular Taiwan beer. A larger white head. I had this at a restaurant in Taipei.
