I lived in China for 2 years and consumed this in large quantities after sport. It is a nothing beer, but having consumed beers in Egypt and Uganda, one can’t be too cruel. Cheaper than bottled water (true) and good for treating cuts.

Yanjing Beer has only one positive attribute, namely the flavoring. Its aroma is hoppy, very floral and also the smell of citrus. The rest of the beer is not worth writing about, but I do it anyway. The taste is thin and diluted, only slightly hoppy aftertaste recalls that it is beer. A totally indifferent beer, which does not apply to anything.

Clear golden color, fizzy and smallish head. Aroma is malty with a hint of fruits. Taste has notes of grain and rice. Just a hint of bitterness in the finish. Not so watery like Yanjing 10P, but still quite watery. (330ml can)

Ljusgul i färggen, litet vitt skum. Malatfärgat vatten? doftar sodavatten lite minerall, majs, söt malt. Kom igen nu Kina!!!

Bottle at Beijing airport. Flavoured fizzy water, slightly carbonated, looks a little bit like beer, tastes a little bit like water.

Can @ plane from Frankfurt to Pudong. Pours light yellow with a white head. Aroma of malt, grain, light grassyness, notes of rice. Taste is malt, grain, some light grassy hops. Thin body, lively carbonation. Another boring pale lager. 020112

DeanF (1912) - Northwest Territories, CANADA - DEC 31, 2011
Almost no head and a yellow body, slightly acidic on the nose with lemon hints. Flavour is some slight fruity malts interspersed with water and rice. Kind of a crappy brew, but I’ve had worse.

Bottle brought and enjoyed in China. Strangely enough this is called Draft, but was served in a can. Small light off-white fizzy head that mostly diminished. Spare display of lacework. Clear light pale yellow color. Aroma of again what appeared to me more like rice then malt. Light sweet and almost like fruity to it. A touch of bitterness can be detected. Light bodied with an average carbonation. Light sweet flavor. Light sweet finish with a touch of bitterness in the end.
