Extremely more-ish. The best of the Commie beers I've had. Its a sprightly drop and great with asain food.

Pale golden colour with fairly thin white head. Strong scent of fruit, flowers, and honey over a nice light malt. Floral taste with a crisp finish. Pretty good with anything spicy.

When I opened the bottle, got a skunky aroma, but after pouring into glass, it improved. Pale yellow and clear, mild maltiness with mild hop flavoring. A little skunkiness. So-so beer, I've had worse, but I've had better.

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.
