Had this on a flight from Beijing to Sydney. Light golden clear body with normal size head. Lemon, grass and hops in the nose. Hops and bitter in flavour and bitter in aftertaste.

This was the official beer of the recent Beijing Olympics. I’m pretty sure this beer was chosen because it goes down easy and would make it very easy to obtain urine for drug tests (Carl Lewis needed 5 beers in Barcelona for one test - this beer would have been perfect). It’s swill. It’s Chinese Bud Light.

Gul i färgen, vitt skum. Doftar och smakar söt malt, gräs, lite unket, kolsyrat. Bättre än många andra Kinaöl.

theisti (3380) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 31, 2012
11.2 oz green bottle gifted to me as part of a World Market beers of the world 9 pack. The pour is a clear yellow golden with a 2 inch white head that breaks down quickly with with thick bubbles. The aroma is cereal grain, lightly sweet, faint and not much going on. The taste is a weird chemical sweetness right away, unpleasant, followed by a flat floral sweet, and then a bit of cardboard in the back. The palate is light to medium bodied, low carbonation level, and the dirty vegetal finish. Flat, watery and flabby, I could only drink a few ounces of this. Gross stuff.

floydian1 (1105) - FNQ, Australia, - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle at Night Markets, Hong Kong. It is another typical Asian-style macro lager with barely there aroma and taste of corn syrup, rice, cardboard and a very light hop presence. Light-medium body with a watery texture. Clear straw yellow appearance with transient small white head.
