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.

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.

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

12 oz bottle poured into my trusty stein- poured transparent very light golden yellow, white head quickly bubbled away, medium carbonation. Aroma of seaweed and malt, ugh. Hits the mouth with a thin body, extremely light malt and hops, finish fades away. The perfect beer to drink when you don’t feel like drinking beer.

Poured a very light yellow with almost no head. Aroma is very skunky with rice and pale malts. Taste is better than the aroma. Flavors of pale malts with not much else, but not very skunky. Slightly sweet up front but with a bitter finish. Smooth throughout. Not as bad as I expected!

First aroma after uncapping the bottle is that of light skunk akin to czech-style pislners. Big frothy foamy head. Lots of carbonation rising up from the bottom of the glass. Pale golden body color. Non-descript flavor. Would be a very nice lawnmower beer since there’s not really much flavor at all. Crisp and smooth going down. Would buy it again to pair with Asian food, but sure wouldn’t buy it again just to drink a beer.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2015 En af de bedre kinesiske øl - med stadig alt for tynd og sjasket. Prisen på ca 1 kr er dog tiltalende - og billigere ned vand

Pours goldish yellow, thin white head. Very little smell, some pale malts. It is easy to drink with no off putting flavors, there just isn’t much flavor at all, little to no hops noticed. Very good water tho, clean and crisp. Good with lighter asian food, not spicy stuff, it is too thin for that.

Bottle. Pours a very light yellow with a white head. Aroma is skunk. With the flavor to match and an earthy finish. Yech.
