First time seeing this one ,bought at Capitol Market, Salem,Oregon. Very nice , simple attractive labelling. Very pale yellow beer, with a large frothy, semi-thick pure white head. Ow this is badly skunked..very nasty aroma, some grassy hops underneath..but the skunk is bad. Flavour? what flavour?..the skunk shows through but not nearly as bad as the nose, everything else is essentially non-existant..a smattering of weak grasslike hops..thin malt. average mouthfeel for style..least it is not nasty Overall not a good beer, not as good as the regular Tsingtao.

Had in Chinatown on Chinese New Year. Well, it is an asia pale lager. It is light bodied, lightly hopped, and lightly flavored. Didn’t have a lot of weird adjunct flavor. Serving: Bottle

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.

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

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.

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.

11.2oz bottle @ Walt Disney World vacation at Epcot Nine Dragons. Low expectation pale lager were met. Light colored watery yellow pour with head. Taste is wet grass, rye and malts. Similiar to the Tsingtao regular.

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.

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.

From a embossed 11.2 oz. green bottle with no freshness date. Poured a clear golden with a small foamy white head that settled into a fine lacing. Had a nose of old grass, spicy hops and a light sweet graininess. Medium carbonation and a softly crisp, dryish, smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Tastes of grass and spicy hops, solvent-like alcohol that mixes with a sweet, subtle dry crackerish malts. I like pale lagers, even some macro lagers, but I didn’t find much to recommend this, very bland tasting.
