Not good, but I have had worse. Very watery and light. Meh. Pass on this one.

(Bottle) On sale for $1 for the 22 oz. bottle, so I thought I would give it a try. Vegetable and grainy aroma and taste. Seemed very watered down. Dry, woody finish. Nothing special.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2007 Why haven’t too many people rated this? Seems curiousity would get the better of you. I’ve seen it in my dealers case everytime I’ve gone in there. Finally I bought a $2 12 oz bottle. It says ’the official state beer of china’ on it. Clear bottle with gold and silver tin foil on it. My bottle looks like the picture on this site but it says ’premium yanjing beer’ on it not ’ yangjing 11 degree premium extra’!! Pours like any other pale yellow american beer. Has the initial smell of skunky vegatables and then fades to a more fruity aroma. Not too bad of a flavor, it is not offensive. Interesting slightly industrialized metallic background flavor, perhaps of rice or plastic, not sure. Palate is average carbonation.Finish reminds me a bit of King Lager from Australia but it is not quite as strong. Not sure why this is rated so low. Just like your typical pale yellow american beer style, with a hint of personality.

Palidor19 (2930) - Brandon, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2007 I found this beer quite satisfying enough, even though the beer was overflowing with Rice taste. High malts and low low hops, still I found quite drinkable enough

nick76 (4184) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2006 Bottle labeled "Premium Yanying Beer" The aroma has sour grapes and rice/corn malt with a generous heap of skunk. The appearance is slightly milky pale gold with a thin head. The flavor was not as bad as the aroma. It is very much like several other big name Asian beers. The malty rice taste is in attendance. The palate is thin but typical for the style. Overall it’s poor quality. This beer claims to be the "Official State beer of China." This one does nothing to promote the idea that having an official government beer is a good idea.

Deep straw in color with a small white head. Starts a little sweet yet finishes dry. Thin in body.

Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a clear medium golden color with alabaster bubbles around the edges. Aroma is of sharp yeast, sweet malts and light fruits. Taste is of light sweet malts and sharp yeast with hints of light fruits in the ending. Watery texture, smooth, and fairly carbonated.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 25, 2006
12oz. bottle: Pours a clear yellow without much head, corn and grain in the aroma, thin watery body, starts and ends like water. Eh!

I poured this from a bottle. The body was light gold with a white head. The aroma was corn and bell peppers with a little bit of wood. There was a taste of corn and plastic. There was also a little bit of bread crust.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2006
Light yellow straw color with a taller white head. Grass and ammonia (akin to hair colorant) aromas. One brief moment in the quaff did I catch some malt and hops. The rest of the time I a water mix of light herbs, green tea and some grain. Nothing really offensive aside from the lack of flavor and taste.
