2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Green bottle. Light gold in colour with high carbonation. Dull light pale malt aroma with a faint suggestion of German noble hops. Somewhat bland rice flavor, not much of a hop contribution in the mouth. Low bitterness, and a bit of a surprising full mouthfeel, inspite of all of the carbonation. Clean finishing. Dull, but drinkable in a pinch.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
330 mL green bottle. Crystal clear yellow-gold with no head. Mild aroma has a hint of European hops, but it’s mostly rice (corn?). The initial flavour is bubbles, and that is followed up by what I guess must be rice sugar, and rounded out with cardboard. Highly carbonated. Not good.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light yellow beer with small white head. Aroma of some grass, sweet corn and some lemon. Flavour is quite refresshing, quite biting in the first, clean, lager-like and quite short. Watery and too much carbonation. Pure, typical lager and there are nothing to remember tomorrow.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
(on bottle) This must be the thinest beertaste ever to land in my mouth, damn it´s weak. It must be brewed for extremly hot conditions and meant as a substitute for infected water. Almost yellow in color, white head. Peaish taste and that´s about it.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
I had mine in a 330 ml green bottle with a green label, simply called "Yanjing Beer". ABV was 4.5%. Lots of carbo and quite thin with little malt profile. SLight corn in the flavour and thin on the finish.
