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.

Bottle. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that was slowly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate grass aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium grass bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with an below average beer.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pale gold, white head. Aromas of somewhat fouled hops, rice, touch of malt. Fairly sweet, with little bitterness - so a bit cloying. Gets odious pretty fast. Not a fan.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bought a bottle in Calgary, Canada. Just called "Yanjing Beer" and nothing else but has the same ABV. as this one so I assumed it might be the same thing. Anyway, nose has rice, plain popcorn, sugar and something stringent. Sweet and light with zero depth and body. Finish is rice dominant.
