1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
It is not fair to abuse this beer wholesale: we do not expect good beers from China. Yet we must be fair and honest, for the sake of good beers.
Perhaps the ugliest pale dead-grass milky straw pour ever. Aroma slightly offensive raccoon musk. Flavor of raccoon meat, undercooked and left in the sun. Mouthfeel is meay and overcarbonated, with greasy toothvarnish. However, this beer did not kill me, and if I had been eating powerfuly spiced or flavored foods, would not have been too averse to its light nothingness.

To my tastebuds, this is a slightly more flavorful, hopsier Budweiser. The novelty of drinking a Chinese beer wore off pretty quick.

I dunno who classified this as a premium lager because it certainly isn’t premium. There are a lot worse beers out there, it was kind of light and refreshing without any huge flavour. A bit on the dull side and not much head. It isn’t going to knock your socks off, but its probably a lot better than most Chinese beers.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Much compact foam and creamy one; optimal persistence. Discreet scent but without pretensions, to read notes of malt and grass. Much limpid and diamond, persistent bubbly. Fresh and light taste. Balanced with a determined bitter. Unexpected.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2011 This was the first and last time I will try this beer. Sampled from a 12 oz green bottle this beer poured a straw yellow color with a small soapy white head. The aroma was sour and skunky. The flavor was sour malt, skunk, and a bit corny. The mouthfeel was surprisingly thick which was the only redeeming quality I could find. Drain pour. ANY BREWER WHO CONSENTS TO PUTTING THE BEER IN A GREEN BOTTLE SHOULD BE BANNED FROM EVER BREWING AGAIN!!!!!!!

A lager like any other for the most part. Light tasting, only with a touch of bitterness at the finish.

Although it is slightly bitter, and I like bitter, this is a fairly watery brew with little to recommed it. It would be inoffensive with dinner in a chinese restaurant.
