this is only the second asian brew i ever had,the first one i had was saporro from japan and i really enjoyed it.so recently when i spotted this chinese beer in my local liquor store ,i was really anxious to give it try.i was expecting another decent beer like saporro,man was i dissappointment.the taste is very skunky and the aftertaste is even worst.i bought a six pack of this and could'nt even finish one of them,gave the rest to my friend and he did'nt like it either.i would'nt recommend this beer to anyone.

With this stuff for competition. It's no wonder Budweiser does so well in Asia. Limit this one to when you go out for Chinese.

This beer pours a light golden color with a small head and no lacing on the glass. The aroma is slightly skunky and unintersting. The flavor is somewhat skunky - reminescent of Heineken but slightly better. It's a little sweet and fairly crisp, but still not very enjoyable.

Didn't care for the taste of this one at all. Looked ok coming out of the bottle. One sip and that was it. I don't reccommend this one to anybody. Steer clear.

Not a big fan. China should stick to being a large communist nation. The aroma was that of soured hops, and the flavor was close to the same. This beer didn't even go well with my food (guess which kind).

Uggh. Unpleasant aroma. Pale in color and even paler in taste. Appropriately loaded with rice. Not good.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2003 Very skunky unpleasant aroma. Light rice taste, tolerable, but a little boring, they could at least use brown bottles when exporting to north america.

It's like the "Hue" Watery so it is refresing. Its doesn't really have a taste ... Probably it could be good with spicy food.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Where there is nothing particularly offensive about this beer, there is really nothing much to it either. Watery, with some hoppiness but not much, and really pretty dull. I could see a long cold one drunk in a couple of seconds on a hot day would be good, but so would just about anything.

One of my favorite "crap beers", I often have a bottle when I go to a Chinese restaurant... mainly because it's cheap. Pale yellow colour; shortly lasting, small to average in size. Faint, sweetish aroma and taste. Crisp enough to be refreshing, especially when you find a fresh bottle, which is not always easy. You can often detect traces of cardboard in the finish.
