stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - AUG 23, 2009
Bottle, 33cl. Pours a clear and very pale yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and rice. The flavor is likewise malt and rice. The palate is refreshing but overall boring.

Very clear straw colour. Some head. Some grass notes in the aroma. Not bad for a Pale Lager. No hop, barley, anything... Some sourness makes it a little fresh. Thin palate, not fresh. I guess pouring it made the head, removing the fizz. Not bad, just not good. Purchased at SuperBrugsen

At least the bottle was nice, with four embossed Chinese characters at the front and "Yanjing Beer" across the back. It poured a large foamy white head that dropped off to nothing with eleven seconds. Colour was a medium gold, sadly reminiscent of urine. Aroma was a little bitter, but mostly a grassy/perfume - Hite revisited. Taste, mouthfeel and aftertaste were all better than expected, with perhaps a hint of seetness in the aftertaste. Maybe the formaldehyde? Not the worst beer I’ve had. Re-reviewed: after having a fair whack o’ this stuff in China, it isn’t all that bad; certainly seems better taste-wise versus the Yanjing we get in N.A. Perhaps it doesn’t travel well?

yngwie (14629) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2009
Bottle, at Copenhagen Beerfestival. It pours a clear, pale golden, or rather yellow, body with a small, white head sitting on top. Some dms and a fruit-like aroma with grainy malts doing most of the job. Burnt plastic, pale malts and some fruity hops in the mouth, really thin. Hints of bitterness in the finish. Sort of drinkable, but I ain’t missin’ it at all. (090517)

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2009
Standard lager colored with medium sized white head. Rice dominates this sweet aroma with thin paper in it. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is even sweeter in start with fruits and lemon, same rise and paper come up in aftertaste. Well, hard to make difference between all these yanjing beers.

Theis (13986) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2009
Bottle at Plan B. Clear yellow - white head. Citrus, light hoppy, corn, light malty, freshness, clean, light crispy. OK.
