2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml ‘Hello Kitty’ can bought at AEON in KCP, Kowloon City.
Clear, very pale dull golden colour; One finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 1 minute; Good lacing with active carbonation; Fragrant and very sweet aroma of canned peaches, plus strong perfume, sugar, artificial flavourings and very light malt; Strong sweet taste of very light malt, with light rice, peach soda, peach juice, thinned fruit syrups and moderate carbo; Light body, close to watery palate; Mouth feel is peach-flavoured cream soda, with its taste a lot less artificial than the strong, close-to-choking perfume aroma. Light malt is tastable, rice is very light. Real peach juice with traces of apples here. Fruit syrups is thinned and thankfully not cloying. No detectable hops and bitterness, just sweet fruit soda pop ‘finish’; Wet after taste, extremely easy and quite nicely sweet to mouth.
Comments: By all accounts, I should not like a not-so-beery fruit drink with pretty artificial aroma. Yet, its rather nicely sweet, strongly white peach flavour with traces of rather nice rice adjuncts, plus good lacing and moderate carbo, convinced me somehow. An easy drink after dinner, and way, way better than those cloying, god-awful Pineapple beers from Mainland China. Kiddy, but quite well-made.

330ml can (Hello Kitty beer) in a tulip. Pours light golden with a big, white head. Aroma of sweet, faux peach flavor plus light malts and light dough. Flavor the same. Light texture. Like the others of this line - glad I tried, but not good.

Natural peach flavor and aroma are very outstanding service.
Japan and South Korea in the fruit beer, fruit beer and the aroma and flavor without being able to compare the two is superior.
Through the eyes of a fruit beer, fruit beer.
