Ungstrup (31473) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2009
Bottled. A golden beer with a white. The flavor is sweet with skunky notes of brewing cereal, and so is the though with added notes of metal and vitamin C.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Simply as "Yanjing Beer". Clear, pale golden with a dense, white head. Lovely aroma hops in the nose, but it’s gone in no time. Extremely thin and watery with a very soft and pleasant mouthfeel. Almost no malts to be detected, it’s probably all rice. And absolutely no bitterness. This is so thin that it hardly can be described as beer. 120208

oh6gdx (23691) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 6, 2008
Bottled (as Yanjing beer). Pale golden colour with mediumsized white head that vanishes quite quickly. Strong malty, grainy and rubbery nose with also rice in it. Also mild notes of rotten vegetables. Flavour is smooth rice and malts with not much bitterness at all. Watery and boring.

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

yngwie (15762) - 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)

TBone (14785) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2008
Bottled (doesn’t mention premium, but 4.5 %, BB 11/2008)
Pale yellow color, not much head. Very typical nose for Chinese lager: corn/rice, skunkyness and cardboard. Watery palate. Crisp carbonation. Papery, grainy dry mouthfeel with some skunky hops. Some harsh and acidic rice-malty flavors. Sweetish aftertaste with notes of iron. Very standard Chinese beer.
