330 ml pull-tap gold can bought at ParkNShop Superstore in Fanling.
Pale pear golden colour; One-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Minimal lacing and notable slight carbonation; Sweet smell of light malt, rice, grains, light syrup, lemon and grass; Light sweet taste of malt, with strong rice, faint apple juice, light bread, very faint citrus and light grass; Light body, watery palate; Taste profile is quite malty body with strong rice. Sweetness is moderately low with some hint of apple juice. Otherwise very clean taste with no fouls. Okay; Hoppiness is low lemony grass nose, thin citrus and grass taste, and notable low bitterness for a clean finish; Slighty dry after taste, very easy to mouth.
Comments: I had no expectation on this one, especially it was grabbed by chance from an 12-pack accidentally opened by store staff! So it comes as a surprise with a non-pungent smell, pretty clean taste, notable hop presence and a hassle-free finish. Fully quaffable for an Asian macro and good for washing down heavy meals.
