Bottled (thanks bored). Goldeny pale amber colour, small head. Aroma is rice, mild malts, some slight herbs and mild rubbery notes, Flavour is maize, rice and some malts with some strange sweetness as well. Not all too bad, although quite rough.

[Canned] Pale golden, dishwater-like head. Aroma of metal and vague fruits. Sweetish with dense mouthfeel. Notes of malt, rice and glue. The vaguest hint of grassy hops. Very light bitterness. A not too bad choice while drinking in China.

Koelschtrinker (17738) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 5, 2011
Ein sehr leichtes Bier, allerdings nur wenig wässrig. Kurz herb im Antrunk, Mittelteil leicht hopfig,wirkt recht trocken. Eine im Antrunk auftretendeSüße wird über den Mittelteil im Nachgeschmack kräftiger, ein bitteres Aroma löst dies ab. Könnte würziger sein. Test vom 16.10.2006, Gebinde: Dose Noten: 3,7,9,8,10,8 - 7,60

"Bomber". Aroma of noble type hop with some light malt. Gold color with a white head that came and went. Near medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. The flavor is grassy hop with light malt. A bit light on flavor, but it’s ok for the style. Finishes lightly sweetish, and the hop doesn’t really build enough to balance.

500ml can - thanks Ares!
Sake hints in the utterly bland aroma. I know why - this is made from rice. Watery and fizzy like soda water. Incredibly bland, and fizzes in the mouth like a soda too. Finish is ricey and soda watery. Incredibly pale and fizzy. Papery once the fizz goes down. Not good.

(330ml bottle, from Fratto) Pours a clear pale yellow with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of grass, skunk, and stinky feet (nasty toe gum). Flavor cereal, grass, and skunk.

Tsingtao Draft 11° 4.5%-500ml can-this was widely available throughout Hong Kong, so I will figure this is the Draft that’s been rated by others already. I also had Draft 10° in Xian, so I will list that as a new beer. pours a thick, foamy white head that reduces to minimal. Bright yellow color with effervescence. Aroma is grain. Taste is grain, somewhat malty. OK, standard for the region. Dated 2/13.
