Pours a clear hay yellow. Smells and tastes like a typical pale lager, but better than most Chinese pale lagers.

Golden color. Little white foam. Smells grainy and sour. Tastes like nothing. Good job ching tao!
Oh. P.s. when I tried to share this beer with my friends on the subway, they pretended like they didn’t speak human and moved to the next train car. Guess I should have shared a 512 pecan porter instead.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle 480ml, Nose is unexistant, aroma is watery with a kind of mango background, no malt, no hops, just a sweet carbonated liquid with light body and strange fruit notes, light peppery bitterness at the finish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml bottle shared by Lubiere (merci!). 08JL12.
App.: Clear light golden with no head.
Aroma: Vaguely fruity, slightly vegetal, DMS, not much else, maybe some wet ash?
Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: Fairly fruity, not bad malt, that’s all; dry with a little bitterness and a lightly fruity, biscuit-ish malt finish.
A little like a cider.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow gold in body with tight carbonation and a mostly lasting thin pad of white atop (unusual of a Chinese lager!), Hints at lavender and elderflower giving a pleasant floral edge to its otherwise sweet peardrop, corn and bready malt aromas. Prickly carbonation upfront otherwise it is smooth for the length with a fruity but dry finish. Delicate, dusty malt base with elderflower and lavender notes again playing a balancing part. Low bitterness, good length with a light to moderate body. Pear drops peak in, as does little lemon fizz-whizz giving a sharp tang to the side of the tongue. I tried this near on room temperature as the fridge of the off-license struggled to chill it. And it weren’t too bad. I’d imagine it would be killer sessionable chilled!

A golden lager with a thin white head. In aroma, light boiled veggies with light chalky notes. In mouth, a lightly fruity malt with light German hops, a bit metallic, OK. Tasted with ProbstBlueRibbon, July 7, 2012.
