bottle pours very light yellow with a thin white head that fades fast to nothing. Aroma is skunky with cat piss and sweet cereals. Flavor is sour and extremely thin. Thin ceareals and a sour finish of lingering cereals. Eh.

Liter bottle from asian market in Seattle. Palest pour on a beer I’ve ever seen, minimal white head, looks like pale ginger ale. Nose is whiff of vinegar and grain/corn. Taste has some honey-like sweetness but otherwise fizzy corny malting. Sweetness is nice, works to cut spicy asian food, but pretty terrible otherwise. Serves its purpose.

Not a bad pale lager. A bit skunky but quite light flavor. Grassy hops, not too much there.

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.

Pale Yellow pour from the 22 oz bottle. Just a little skunk flavor and aroma. Guess I should consider myself lucky considering the green bottle. Some lemony flavors, but not enough to actually make it good.

500ml can. Pale yellow color. No head. Absolutely bland, watery stuff. Thanks to my friend who bothered to bring me this from China. Never again.

Bomber bottle with Chinese and Western lettering. Wimpy taste of wheat, yeast, rice - watery. It could be they want this to compete with dry Japanese beers, but this is inferior to those and to regular Tsingtao. More like a lite beer than a draft lager. Save it for watering your bamboo trees.

2010 Walt Disney World vacation at Epcot Nine Dragons. Bottle to glass pour is golden yellow with a white soapy head. Scents of light grass and subtle malt. Taste is crisp bubbly water with some grassy malt and finishes dry and crisp.
