Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. I thought this was sake at first glance at the big green bottle. Nose is green apples, skunky garbage, dumpster, and grease pit. Taste is, "nothing on top of rained on cardboard."

( 600ml bottle thanks to ericandersnavy) Pours very pale yellow with light bubbles. Nose of apple, butter, rotten vegetables. Taste of grains, apple and veggies.

angrypirate06 (1388) - Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Looks like the water I jused used to rinse out my glass after my Goose Island Bourbon County. And what a terrible, terrible transition. Aroma is skunk and rice. This beer makes me weep. Flavor: I’m honestly scared to drink this. Corn, garbage, diacetyl, cereal, sweet, skunk.

Cavie (4234) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle courtesy of ericandersnavy. Bottle marked Yanjing Beer. Clear light yellow. Small white head. Smell is there. Stale grain and soured notes. Taste is slightly sweet. Kind of a malt liquor flavor. Old pumpkin scents turn up as it warms.

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Thanks to ericandersnavy for this green-bottled beauty!! Pours a pale yellow body that’s fizzy and headless. Aroma of corn syrup and super skunk. Flavor not as bad as aroma: Light lemony sweet. After that--nothing. Paper thin body. Lively carbonation.

Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this bottle. I guess this is the right place to review this, even though the bottle was different. All the label said was Yanjing beer with no ABV or other information. Pours a standard macro yellow with a white head. The aroma is corn and garbage. Flavor is more macro corn. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a very good beer.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. I was told by the local admin that this might be the right entry, but it is hard to tell as the bottle only says Yanjing Beer with no alcohol content given. Anyway. Pours with a very clear pale body. Aroma of acetaldehyde and sugar. Taste is sugar, adjuncts and pretty shoddy overall. Fizzy and dry.

junon (430) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JAN 20, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2010 I actually guessing that his is the version that I am drinking as none of the names or images matches what I have here. Very vegetal in both aroma and taste. Grassy. Tastes like a rice beer. It is crisp. There is an interesting sweet aftertaste though. Overall not bad.

I have no idea if this is the right beer, all my bottle says is "yanjing beer" and ratebeer does a piss poor job of giving us information to differentiate the different listings. This poured yellow and had a white head at one point but settles completely 100% headless. Nose is crisp with notes of old lime, wheat and mellow lager yeast. Soft grains and wheat dominate the clean, mellow flavors with hints of citrus splash in the finish. Actually, its fairly clean for the style and I like the distinctive lemony/lime notes in the finish. Not much else to say.

Clear, straw coloured. Rice and hops flavour. Quite mild and weak overall, but slightly better than expected.
