Bottle. Pours pale yellow with a small fizzy white head that disappears quickly with little lacing. Aroma is hay, corn syrup, cardboard, metal. Flavor is much the same, lightly sweet, light bitterness, metallic finish. Light body.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Clear pale yellow pour, small white head. Nose is a bit skunky. Thin palate. Just another bad grainy lager.

Can’t say I know where to get it, because their distributor was a sponsor of a trivia bowl I was in, put on by the Asian American Journalists Association. At least I can say a light lager does indeed go well with spicy Asian food. Pours a decent lager yellow color. An okay beer at first seems like there are malts in the front. Taste is on the sugary side, but still close to style. At least it cools me after some chili chicken and bao rolls.

Glad I didn’t both with a full bottle of this, just had a taste from a plastic cup at the grocery store. Nothing too offensive but nothing worth revisiting, either.

thirdeye11 (5635) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2011
(330ml bottle thanks to the ever-reliable pale lager provider, Fratto) clear pale yellow with soapy white bubbles. Nose is stinky, skunky, and some toasty grain. Taste of old grain, paper, skunky, and just bad. Grainy linger.

reggiedunlop (3224) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Pours a watery yellow with no head whatsoever...looks dead. Aroma of hay and faint alcohol. Flavor is also like hay. Mouthfeel is watery up front but shockingly gets a little lively at the finish which is abrupt (thankfully). This beer truly sucks.

Pours goldish yellow, thin white head. Very little smell, some pale malts. It is easy to drink with no off putting flavors, there just isn’t much flavor at all, little to no hops noticed. Very good water tho, clean and crisp. Good with lighter asian food, not spicy stuff, it is too thin for that.

11.2oz bottle @ Walt Disney World vacation at Epcot Nine Dragons. Low expectation pale lager were met. Light colored watery yellow pour with head. Taste is wet grass, rye and malts. Similiar to the Tsingtao regular.
