3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear, light yellow in color with little to no head. Lighly malt flavor with light floral notes. Light malt flavor, sweet. Fizzy and enemic, not recommended.

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?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very crisp palate, noble hop nose, long, bitter-balanced finish. I like this beer. Its not Pilsner Urquell, but I'd take it over Heiney or Stella anyday.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale golden color with a sickly, soapy looking white head. The aroma and flavor were so bland that I had a hard time picking anything out. Surprisingly, I got no rice or corn in the aroma...extremely mild hops...some sweetness. The flavor was mildy sweet with an ocassional hint of hops. Watery feel...very very light. Because it was so bland I really can't say much about this beer.
