2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2004 Pours yellow and watery with little head. Smells like it comes in a green bottle, and indeed it does. Flavor is bland and comperable to most other asian lagers I have tasted. Overall, I canít really justify drinking it unless Iím out at a Chinese restaurant eating some spicy Szechuan quisine.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is hoppy, slightly malty, skunky and something weird (which should be the rice). Clear, golden coloured with a fast diminishing head. Taste is better than smell. Initially sparkling beer, becomes more bitter. hoppy, (too) sweet and a little floral. Fresh palate, slightly dry. At least it tastes better than I expected.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Absolutely nothing out of the ordinary with this one, except that it is made in China. (Hey, arenít they communist? What are they doing making beer? What is the relationship between those two things? I dunno.) Anyway, doní t buy this at a restaurant as it is tooooo pricey for what you get.

This could just be because I had it with a good chinese meal but I quite enjoyed this beer. Bit pricey though.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale yellowy appearance, slightly hazed, moderate head formation. Malty, grainy, lightly hopped aroma. Sweet malt intro, slightly coarse and grainy. Dry in the finish with a mild bitterness. Fairly simple, acceptable in a Chinese restaurant.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sweet kinda maltesqe nose, yellow with minimum head. Fairly livly in the mouth, sweet but prehaps a bit too much. Finnished slighly grainy and dry. No real defining charatoristics. It wasnt out right bad but it definitly wasnt good. Prehaps "smuh" is the word Im looking for.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2009 Smells vaguely floral and sweet. Pours a light golden with no head to speak of. Beer is a bit thicker than i expected, and is actually a bit sweet and decently balanced. Finish is watery. No real adjunct flavors, at least. Easy to drink and very very mild. Iíve had worse, and i could imagine sort of enjoying it in China.
