1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

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

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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

Shared with svoger and beerbiker at my bicycle weekend debut. Brought home from China by big daddy. Pale yellow, small white head. Almost no aroma, unlycky undertaste of corn and cardboard with a sweet almost cloying flavor.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
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.

Pours and looks a lot like Tsingtao but this version is much smoother and crisper.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a light golden color with a white head. Aroma is pretty much skunk, grass notes, and a little floral hop. Not as much skunk on the flavor but it’s still there. Other then that there is mostly just some grassy notes.
