1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

Barely noticeable aroma of hops. Light yellow. Hardly any taste at all. Thin. This beer has nothing to offer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This pilsener beer pours a clear golden color with a small, fizzy white head that does not linger. The aroma is slightly hoppy and grassy with a bit of sweetness from the malts and corn. It has a light body with moderate carbonation and a smooth, slightly watery mouthfeel. The flavor is slightly sweet and the hops show themselves briefly in the finish. Not bad, drinkable with no off flavors, though the flavor it does have is not very impressive. This would make a good, light beer to go with some Asian dishes.
