2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Quite surprised by this really. With typical pale gold hues and a scummy white head this looked like a standard pale lager. However, the saazy like aroma with soem enticing citrussy notes suggested otherwise. The flavour was somewhat left-field with some faint malts as a structural base upon which sweet citrussy tones were layered, turning into tropical fruit towards the end. Smooth and refreshing, the only real faults of this beer is that it isnít particularly flavourful and that after half a glass one was left with a slightly sour aftertaste. Quite reasonable.

Only beer i see here in the states from China. A watered down gold body and foam head that stays a fluff for few seconds. This is a actual pleasant beer and its pretty good or maybe because im eating Chinese take out with it. It certainly isnít anything worth buying again but at least i know its not that bad.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bright gold with white bubbly head that lasts for a little while until it recedes into a thin cover. Some pleasant noble hops and some malt to balance it with only a touch of pepe le pieu. Very little flavour that contains some hops and, unexpectedly, raisin and grain. No bitterness to speak of. Light body and good carbonation level.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty much the Budweiser of China. Light Yellow pour with rapidly declining head. Palate is weak. Not bad overall, but not great.

The best way to describe this one is Bush beer with a Chinese label. Iíve been experimenting with various Asian beers lately for a party Iím throwing and definitely will not be offering this one to my guests. Nothing special here.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cheap yellow gold color with a white head and little to no lacing. Ceral grains in aroma and taste. Slight grassy hops. Weak palate. Not offensive...just a mild summery brew.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nothing special here.Decent golden color,small head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was maybe a light malt with a bit of a sweet side and a hint of hops.The flavor was decent light malty side some mild bitterness and mild hop showing.Over all it finished up fairly clean with a thin feel.Not bad but definately could be better.

Has an acidic somewhat metallic taste. While it has a somewhat pleasant aroma it has only a light malty taste and a cheap soapy hops. The only things this beer is good with is strong food because it will compete with the flavor maybe even cover up a bad food taste.

Only with Chinese food please, though still more distinctive than any American macro. Sweet, with unique, if not entirely pleasant, metallic flavor. Seriously, you would never drink this outside of your local Chinse restaurant.
