Bottle. Pours pale yellow with a small fizzy white head that disappears quickly with little lacing. Aroma is hay, corn syrup, cardboard, metal. Flavor is much the same, lightly sweet, light bitterness, metallic finish. Light body.

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.

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.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pale golden w/ a meium sized, spritzy froth. Hang time is minimal and so is the residual lacing. Aroma of skunked malts. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers. It’s clean and crisp w/ no offensive flavors. Good balance. The finish is bittered nicely.

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.
