sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2008
(Bottled) Paleish golden with a small head. Very grassy aroma with rice-lemony maltiness and surprisingly also some alcohol. Quite malty, rice-corny, sweetish and fruity-lemony flavor with mild acidity and low bitterness. Not that light-bodied, smooth, but quite carbonated palate. Not that bad for a Chinese pale lager - it even has some flavor and body.

Blah...I knew this was going to be bad but I had to try it. Pour was an unusually light gold with a 2 finger white head. Aroma of skunk and seltzer (a winning combination). Very thin and watery mouthfeel with not much taste. I feel sorry for the Chinese if this is their "Official State Beer". Blah.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2007
600 ml bottle. Bright golden colour. Head falls down immediately. Crystal clear. Nice golden colour. Sharp maltiness and very sugary aroma. Very thin body with a little malt that lasts only a second before cidery sugars set in. Very neutral hops and a really clean bitterness. Awful industrial produce.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle from chinese supermarket. Aroma has cardboard an ink, pale lager malts and a small acidic hint. Taste is up front a sweetish biscuit malt with some hints of tea, however the cardboard/ink combo taks over again and get in the way.

Bottle. Clear, golden colour, fast disappearing head. Artificially sweet aroma. Quite sweet flavour, bitterness is absent. Drinkable as an alternative to water.

Medium very coarse white head quickly disappears entirely. Copper body with carbonation. Watery caramel, burnt rubber and sugary caramel aroma. Bitter watery sugary artificial chemical taste. Empty papery aftertaste. Not good. (0.66l bottle.)

KnutAlbert (6398) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2007
Bottled with a label with an Italian slogan, bought in an oriental food shop in Italy. The label says just Yanjing Beer. A little carbonation. fine golden color. A little malt, and something which resembles artificial sweetener, but is probaly rice malt. Sweetish aftertaste. Awful beer. Interesting that they bother to ship this type of crap around the world.
