1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours a clear bright yellow with a very thin white head. Ricey aroma with some skunk. Nasty skunky, rice flavor with a hint of hops and a lot of water. Very boring, very bad.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the bottle: Pours a clear light gold with a fizzy white head that’s gone soon after pouring. Intense grainy citrus aroma at first. Then some subdued hop and slightly chemical scents come out.
Flavour is rather light. High carbonation.
A family friend suffers from Celiacs Disease (problems with Gluten) and drinks this beer because of the higher proportion of rice to barley.

Bought this in it’s can form. The beer pours a nice gold color, nice amount of carbonation. The beer smells malty, the taste is bready with a good malt sweetness to it and finishes with a weak hop bite. This is a good pilsner style beer and I drink this regularly, it pairs very well with chinese food.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very neutral blond beer. Golden colour with a fast decreasing head. The taste is smooth with floral aromas, light body but it is quite sparkling.
I’d never drink it on its own, but next to chicken tandoori or duck it’s pretty good!

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2005 Solid beer. Pleasant. easy to drink. well-balanced. A good beer to drink with a meal. Not neccesaily to enjoy by itself.

Not bad, but not all that good. Try it if in China...then order a coke. Better yet, try Great Wall wine instead...

Not a bad beer, just not a very good one. If you need something to wash the General Tso’s down and nothing else is at hand, reach for this.

Bottled. Not altogether unpleasant, though pretty plain and a bit artifical tasting. What the hell is premium about this lager? Has a distinctly sour, chemical aftertaste that I suspect comes from the rice added during brewing.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I Thought that it was much worse. This beer is much light one, from the light body, nearly deprives of stuttura.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. 4,5%. Pours pale yellow with a short lasting white head. Aroma is citrusy hoppy. Flavour is equally citrusy hoppy with an occasional note of baking yeast - not very nice.
