1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Had this over Chinese food, which was probably not a great idea anyway. Fizzy, almost carbonated, light golden color, very little head or nose, and a dull flavor. Not impressive.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I like this beer, it is light and refreshing still tastes very good, a bit malty and very nice, mild hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
At first, it looks and tastes like an ordinary draft beer, but the hops stands out and there is a slight hint of originality in the malt. Not a bad lighter beer.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
I really don't like this stuff. Reminds me of a heavily rice-based bad pilsner. Very thin, bitter and acidic, too biting.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not much on the aroma side, slightly fruity. Typical pilsener appearance, pouring light yellow with high carbonation. Has an unusual buttery palate that was not unpleasant. Better than I expected but lacks the crisp finish of a high quality pilsener.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2003 Very pale appearance. Very different flavour, quite crisp. Head is unremarkable. Still, better than most macro-brews.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A surprising beer - I didn't expect much from China, but came away pleasantly surprised. I won't eat chinese food without a stubby now and find it's crisp, lightness a perfect partner for it

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thin aroma not much to comment on, got a slight waft on malt. Hoppy taste with hints of peach. This is a very thin beer with vitually no after taste. Its a bit like a weak IPA.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2006 Rerate 10/25/04 Just nothing to really get excited about with this one - just an ordinary Asian lager; thin dry, slightly bland. Slight hop presence. Original 2.8 Not a bad way to kill 10 minutes while waiting for my Chinese take out. Olive oil-like aroma, unusual, but not unpleasant. Little to no head - but what is there has a lot of lacing. Very dry flavor - leaves you thirsty almost! Quite a bite to it. Stays strong throughout.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma reminds me of rice,has little head, but is very smooth. Has a short, fruity finish. Not bad, not great.
