1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale yellow, quickly deminishing head, no lace. No aroma. Neutral palate. "Refreshing" only in a macro-brewed pale lager sense. Absolutely nothing unique here.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle: Poured a golden color lager with a small bubbly white head with minimal retention. Aroma of weak malt and hops with bad case of skunk in the back. Taste is pretty inoffensive apart from the bad case of skunkyness. You have to wondered why they import all those crappy lager into North Amercia…

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2011 Old review (German Export 5% version):
Ooh, my first Chinese beer. Pours a medium sized and thick white head. Surprise, surprise, it was pale and yellow. Bad malt nose, comparable to a n/a nose. Oh, and my Tsingtao (German export, but found in the Scout Club Irish Pub in Samobor) had 5% alc.. The taste was cardboardy, but the lemon dominated. Why on earth is this imported here ? (3/2/4/1/8)

pours goldenish in color with a small white head, smell is mostly of malts, a tiny bit of skukiness in the aroma, taste was slightly sweet with a slight bitter finish, ok body a little watery, not a bad beer, it drinkable .

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Out of a bottle, it’s light, a little cloudy, quickly dispersing head. Aromas of grains, similar to American macro brews. The taste is nothing to write home about. Watery, but not bad. Goes very well (as it should) with Asian cuisine.

Very pleasing to the palate especiialy when paired with Chinese food (that is being consumed in huge quantities). Very light in color. Much subtler than the Pale Ales that I am used to.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2006 It’s the most common beer in chinese restaurants here in Greece. If well chilled then it’s ok.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 12oz. Clear light amber with small white head. Small aroma. Light body with small texture. Light flavor with little to no finish. Clearly a below average lager.

My wife said the aroma wafts of skunk piss and malt, whatever that means. Nice golden color, decent pils pour. Unlike some of the other comments I found this to be an all over satisfying brew on par with a Heiniken or a Becks, but with a lighter swallow. Overall I would pick this up again.
