I liked this beer. It is a very mild beer and not the least bit substantial. However, it drank quite smoothly and left no bad aftertaste. Give it a try.

Not bad at all for an Asian beer. Actually rather crisp and pleasant. Try it with Vietnamese food. Cools it down just right.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very pale yellow color. Fizzy white quickly dissipitating head. The nose is extremely skunked, I doubt one could find a fresh version outside of China. Also hints of slight grass and light sugar. The body has a light spritz at the beginning with a surprising light hop bitterness. Gets into some sugar at the close and finishes dry and sprtizy with just a touch of dust. I'm sure there must be better beers in China.

I was expecting alot worse. I was expecting something like the american budweiser, with an overwhelming piss and rice taste. This was alot better, nice yeasty aroma, some hints of rice, a very refreshing brew

This isn't too bad. Poured a light straw yellow with nearly no head and almost non existant lacing. Light but pleasant flavor. Moderate carbonation. This might be Decent on a hot day.

This is NOT the people's beer, as it is a joint venture...but anyway, this is the finest China has to offer, having had it there. Certainly better than Yanjing, Chongqing, or any of the other state-run brews. Being that you either get those, or Budweiser (Wuhan brewery) or this, I would take this while you're there.

The people's beer...Smells a bit like skunked apple juice would, if I ever had it. A little more hops and malt than average cheap American beer. Ok all around once and a while, but not so good really. You think Mao would be proud?
