Top grade Australian malt, selected rice, fine aromatic hops and pure natural fountain produce out the beer with pure liquid, satin smoothness, affluent and long-lasting foam. Its fragrant taste and sharp beer strength will impress you deeply

Strangebrewer (1133) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2008
Smelt a bit skunky, poured pale gold with almost no head. Watery taste, no malt, clean dry finish.

Bottle from the LCBO. The appearance is the first clue that this is not going to be a pleasant drinking experience, as it pours a pale and lifeless pale gold with a small white head that disappears almost instantly. The aroma has all of the hallmarks of a cheaply made industrial brewed beer: wet grain, cooked vegetables, cardboard, burnt plastic, and a harsh alcohol note that is better suited to an 8% malt liquor than a 4.5% pale lager. The flavour is mercifully mild at first, but quickly turns into an unpleasant melange of stale-tasting malt, over-cooked and slightly rotten veggies, and hints of metal and plastic. Ugh!

TheJester (2441) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2008
330 mL green bottle. Crystal clear yellow-gold with no head. Mild aroma has a hint of European hops, but it’s mostly rice (corn?). The initial flavour is bubbles, and that is followed up by what I guess must be rice sugar, and rounded out with cardboard. Highly carbonated. Not good.

probstblueribbon (3675) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2008
330 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Medium golden with a smallish white head. Aroma: A bit of grassy, slightly peppery hops, plenty of grain and cereal behind that and maybe a touch of corn. Palate: Medium carbonation and medium-light body. Flav.: A small hit of the grassy hops then cereal/grain; dry with basically no aftertaste or bitterness.

Not exciting but inoffensive. Hopefully rated under the correct product...

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2008
LCBO six pack bottle purchase- This pale lager poured a sparkling gold, and was topped with a loud and fizzy white cap that faded to a small ring. The aromas were not appealing at all. Quite metallic and of rotten vegetables with creamed corn and grains. The taste reminded me of coors light, but with added rotten vegetable sweetness and grains. Quick, abrupt, corn finish leaves me wondering why this is sold at all? Even for a pale lager, this is bad. The worst of the new beers available at the LCBO.

oh6gdx (24904) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 6, 2008
Bottled (as Yanjing beer). Pale golden colour with mediumsized white head that vanishes quite quickly. Strong malty, grainy and rubbery nose with also rice in it. Also mild notes of rotten vegetables. Flavour is smooth rice and malts with not much bitterness at all. Watery and boring.

33cl bottle at Haket 2008-02-08. Pale with some light head. Not much going on in there, a very dull beer...

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Simply as "Yanjing Beer". Clear, pale golden with a dense, white head. Lovely aroma hops in the nose, but it’s gone in no time. Extremely thin and watery with a very soft and pleasant mouthfeel. Almost no malts to be detected, it’s probably all rice. And absolutely no bitterness. This is so thin that it hardly can be described as beer. 120208
