An easy to drink Chinese lager beer. A bit boring and tasteless but good as a thirst quencher.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Colour yellow with white head gone quickly, weak aroma, taste of grains, floral, light body, average carbonation, poor character, quite refreshing though.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear golden, the head dissipates far too quickly. The nose is a compound of grainy and floral notes with a hint of ripe apple; rather simple but no fault is to be found in it. Not too bad, actually. On the palate, it has significantly less to offer. There is a distinct lack of any flavor from front to mid-palate; only a faint hint of the floral note and the taste of steamed rice stay with the alcohol afterglow in the finish, followed by light acidity. The carbonation is a tad too soft, but the mouthfeel overall isn’t anything offensive at all. This beer has no depth, but will do in a pinch.

0,33 bottle with red label and 4.7% vol. Very pale colour, like lemon juice, almost no head. Aroma is crisp, with weak herbal hops. Light bitterness, maybe a bit sour. Watery, soft carbonation. Not bad, but nothing interesting in it.

Called the local chinese restaurant for food and this bottle came as a gift. No taste, no flavour, nothing else to do but pour a healthy dose of Picon bière into it...

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
640 ml bottle. Very pale yellow, completely clear, with a tiny frothy white head which went away immediately leaving no lacing. On the nose grain, corn, rice, wet cardboard. Very hard to expand on the taste. Just grainy, vegetable-like, extremely sweet and cloying. No malt or hop bitterness whatsoever. Papery and dusty aftertaste. Average carbonation, light to medium body, slightly creamy texture. Easily forgettable.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Almost no aroma just a hint of malt. Pale golden color with a white well laced head. Tastes like a poor man’s Heineken hint of malts and nuts. Watery feel no aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wer hat noch kein Tsingtao im China Restaurant probiert. Farbe und Geruch sind gold und leichte Noten von Würze, vielleicht auch ein Minihauch von Citrus und Frucht. Schaumkrone ist erst bescheiden aber beim zweiten einschenken dann besser. Die Bierkomposition ist nicht unstimmig und auch fehlerfrei, aber vom Einstieg schon merkt man hier ist wenig Pep drin. Leichte süssliche Note die etwas unterstützt wird vom Echo einer Fruchtnote im Körper und Abgang. Insgesamt kein schlechtes Bier, aber auch kein Gutes.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
After reading the above note, clearly this was the beer I had under the same ABV.
Though after having this more than enough times in the bottle and having it in a pint glass, I’ve also been able to get it in a pilsener glass as well.
Here’s the rest.
The appearance was a nice light yellow color with strong rising carbonation to fill a rapidly dissipating head. There was some light lacing but it slid right on into the beer somewhat quickly.
The smell had a generic cooked corn like substance but somehow maybe even be rice that was in as well or possibly just itself.
The taste was semi - sweet and had a slight quick sweet clean and crisp finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it causing it to go well with food. The carbonation was somewhat crisp yet smooth.
Overall, decent pale lager that’s worthy of coming back though the smell seemed a bit weak.

This is a light beer. Macro feel but very refreshing. Pairs nicely with some spicey food from the East Village.
