2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Interesting beer to look on, the green bottle filled with chinese characters on the label. However it is somewhat unlikely that a mass produced Chinese ricebeer would be a taste revelation. The beer smells quite well - fresh and lightly hoppy as other Asian lagers. taste is soft and light and fresh. a nice little beer you could easily drink many of without getting tired of them.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle -
Suprised to find this on the menu at a local Chinese restaurant. The only thing they’d ever served was Tsingtao, and I do think that this one was just a step up from Tsingtao. Standard piss yellow body with a foamy 2" airy cap, with really quick soda-pop like dissipation. Aroma is a "blink and you’ll miss it" kinda of aroma. Really light hay, touch skunky and bready. Flavor is light, quick, with just a hint of sweetness, clean finish. It went well with the food I had ordered, and didn’t detract from the flavors of the food. Not sure I’d plunk down $8-10 for a sixer, but you could do worse.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
300ml bottle. Slightly metallic hop aroma with biting carbonation and light toasted malt with sweet finish. Certainly not horrible but pretty bland.

Bottle. Kind of offensive. Skunky and watery. Really not a good beer at all.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Ich habe das Bier schon in China getrunken, zwischen den wässrigen Bieren dort war das hier noch herausragend, das kann ich jetzt nicht gerade behaupten. Es präsentiert sich typisch wässrig, einzig der herbe Ton im Mittelteil, der anschließend langsam mit süßem Touch weicht ist erwähnenswert. Wenn ihr in China seit, das ist eins der besten Bier, wirklich....

supposedly the most popular beer in china, it was skunky at first, but surprisingly unoffensive.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Light and insubstantial like an ice lager. Moderate carbonation. Dull muted flavours make a dull beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I don’t know if this is the right one, but anyway it looks like this: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_1JmMJ_qDjRs/S06TATI7TkI/ and there’s 4.5 % alcohol.
It tastes smooth, and there’s funny kind of roastiness, cereal-chocolate. A bit bitter and, but very little. This is very great beer for those who like creamy, mild, yet good tasting beers. No any yeast/bacteria or other stupid aromas. The beer somehow "takes" the mouth, fills it with a weird little little bubble taste.
