1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear golden coloured body with a thinnish white head. Aroma of malt, metal and blood - not much pleasant here. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic flavour with some nicer mellow hop flavours. Aftertaste shows some more harshness around the edges with an alcoholic burn and some bitter metal tastes coming through. Overall, a strong and metallic flavour - but some decent tastes come through. I’d rather have this than a normal Tsingtao, but that might just be because I had this 330 mL can, purchased from a small grocery store in Shanghai, China a year ago, sampled during the opening Ceremony of the Olympics, on 08-August-2008.

I’ve had this one in Hong Kong.
But I wish I hadn’t :) It’s not a very good beer, a lot less then avarage. Too dull.

Bottled. Pale golden, no head. Ricey, light bodied and fairly sweet, but soft and not really thin. Near no bitterness.
