How can it be pure draft out of a bottle? Dark gold body with a bright white head. The nose is slightly skunky with lots of corn and husky grain notes. The taste is very light with corn and bread crust. There is also some almond shell and club soda in the finish. A decent light brew.

Green 330mL bottle, clear faint yellow. Skunk aroma. Typical. Crisp refreshing rice flavor. Finish with a light floral. I would definitely drink this again. It’ll do in a pinch.

Bottled. A pale yellow beer wiu a small white head. Grainy and metalic aroma. Taste is also metalic and malty. Watery

Pours a straw yellow color with a white head. Aroma is honey, floral, and skunk. Flavor is floral, rice, honey, vanilla, some skunk, and almost no bitterness.

330 mL. Pours typical pale lager- short lived head, no lacing, blah blah. Aroma is sweet corn, rice, some light pineapple. The description is classic: water from China’s "old mountain" mountains. Tastes a little better than say Heineken with less chemical and grainy tastes and more fruitiness. Not bad.

PorterPounder (5340) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Jacksonville, Fl. - Total Wine - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling light golden with almost no head. Grainy aroma with hints of honey. Flavor has a sweet bent to it with some honey, some kids cereal - not altogether unappealing. Finishes with a bit of a grassy back end. Mouthfeel is on the thin side. Overall, though, thirst quenching and hit the spot after a long drive on a hot day.

crazyvin (1897) - New York, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Yellow, heavy carbonation. Some what skunky aroma with notes of grain. Flavor was nice and crisp, simple corn note though. Finish was subtle and dry.

Snojerk321 (2975) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 28, 2009
12oz bottle. Pretty much your standard Asian Pale Lager. Pours a clear pale yellow with a 2 finger thick off white head. Nose of grain, skunk, and a touch of herbal hops. Not bad with Chinese take out.

Ugh. Very pale golden body with a nearly non-existent head. Aroma is pure skunk that you can smell from several feet away. Weak, watery palate. Taste is only marginally better than the aroma. Semi-sweet with only a hint of grassy hops. Barely even a thirst quencher. Maybe I’ll chug one after a very spicy bowl of General Tso’s.

Bottle. Pours a very light yellow with a white head. Aroma is skunk. With the flavor to match and an earthy finish. Yech.
