Light gold with minimal head. Lots of carbonation. Finishes clean and hoppy. It's nothing special.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thin beer with off flavors. Not too appealing. This beer has a long way to go to be a drinkable beer.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a watered down piss-yellow with a medium amount of virgin white head that dissipates quickly but leaves a thin, soapy-looking film of sudsy head. Aroma is of straw, grass, vegetal on a cool spring day. Flavor is a watered down crappy yellow beer, straw, grass, vegetal. Not offensive, but certainly no good reason to injest anymore of it. Sampled at 67 degrees Fahrenheit.

Very pale gold colour with white medium size lasting head. Harsh rice? nose and the taste is of floral hops with a watery texture.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2004 Between the time when a bottle gets capped in China to when someone buys it at a Chinese buffet in Minnesota, this beer turns into skunk water. I would like to try it fresh if ever given the chance.

I'm not sure whether I'm smelling rice or very mild hops, but there's a hint of skunk to it anyway.
Carbonation seems to be the order of the day for my ratings tonight. Otherwise it's yellow with a modest layer of head.
I used to like this beer from the can once. Now I know why; the green glass bottles do it no favours. This bottle has traveled to far and sat to long on a shelf in a well lit shop.
Otherwise the taste is mild and watery. Would do OK with some Thai-takeaway, if the beer was fresh. Otherwise there's not much going on for it. Too sweet by far, really.

I sometimes drink this beer at my local Dim Sum pusher! It is a very light pilsener but it has some kind of interesting crispy feeling to it (almost like Champagne....). Very thin and watery with very little flavor.
