ChainGangGuy (4347) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, pale yellow body with a small, white head. Smell: Fresh, clean rice aroma with a waft of water-soaked grasses. Taste: Not much to go on here, folks. Some puffed rice, some clean water, a medium sweetness, and a very slight grassy hop character. Clean, sudden finish. Just like life, it’s over before you know it. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Again, there’s not alot going on here. It’s okay, perhaps, if you’re looking for something tremendously light, but then the optimal choice would be: water.

nick76 (4170) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2008
The aroma is full of adjuncts and rather malty with a grassy hop. The appearance is pale gold with a small head. The flavor is water like with rice and grass. The palate is watery. Better than the regular with no funk but nothing great.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Slight hint of hay on the nose. Pale yellow, almost lemon color. with decent carbonation. Taste was light and clean. Some slight hop flavor. Great with Chinese food. Very simple refreshing beer.

DuffMan (6438) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 14, 2008
Pale clear straw yellow, crispy grains, lightly hopped, clean finish. No complaints when you know what you’ve signed up for.

BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Marginal in every way. Grassy hops with a bit of citrus. Pours with a fizzy white heead over a yellow body. Decent retention. Tastes like rice, but decently drinkable. Watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Not horrible.

mmmbeer (1225) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2008
12 oz bottle poured into my trusty stein- poured transparent very light golden yellow, white head quickly bubbled away, medium carbonation. Aroma of seaweed and malt, ugh. Hits the mouth with a thin body, extremely light malt and hops, finish fades away. The perfect beer to drink when you don’t feel like drinking beer.

Interesting find here, thanks to JRedmond. Classified as a regular pale lager, unlike Tsingtao which is a "premium" lager. Because the calorie content is listed in the description, im guessing thats its selling point and its the equevelent of a Light beer. To be honest this was pretty solid. Given the chance, I would rather drink this. Not a whole lot going on, but its very smooth and refreshing.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2010 12 oz bottle split with pwn3d. I thought this was better than the original despite the rating, and lower alcohol. The body is very clear yellow. The aroma is really nothing at all. The taste is pretty smooth, nothing really offensive.

Very pale dishwater yellow color with no head. Light malt and hop flavors with a bitter aftertaste

malrubius (1638) - Willowick, Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2007
12 ounce bottle in generic goblet. Golden yellow with rapidly diminishing white head. Aroma of boiled corn and soiled underwear. Flavor? None. Not worth drinking.
