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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours a very light yellow with a white head. Aroma is skunk. With the flavor to match and an earthy finish. Yech.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a light golden color with a white head. Aroma is pretty much skunk, grass notes, and a little floral hop. Not as much skunk on the flavor but it’s still there. Other then that there is mostly just some grassy notes.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from the bottle. First things first, I have an instant wariness of anything in a green bottle, which to me is a sure sign of water masquerading as a beer-like beverage. Upon opening, I was greeted by the sharp pervasive smell of skunky rice, this aroma had some legs on it too, I could smell it about five feet away. The body is not as pale as I was prepared to see, and was a light golden color, with a instantly diminishing head of white foam. Mouthfeel is very light, with carbonation being mostly for show. Flavor was tinny, but not horribly so, and was innocuous in its smoothness. Palate was grassy and slightly metallic with little aftertaste. Certainly a beer to drink quickly. Meh.
