UPDATED: JUL 31, 2015 Tasted from green bottle into standard pint glass. Part of a Beers of the World mix-pack. Poured a straw color, with a fluffy white head, somewhat lasting with a tiny bit of lace. Aromas of grain, grass, extremely faint (noble?) hops. Flavor was almost entirely neutral, just clean, mellow, cereal grain water. Dry finish, no aftertaste at all. Not bad, not very good either.

(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.

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.

Kita (1590) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottled, 0.64l. Clear brownish golden color with large frothy, but quickly diminishing white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of grainy malt, cardboard and grassy hops. Taste is sour grainy and of adjuncts, mouthfeel is crisp and dry, while finish is light bitter. Light body, watery texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. Commercial deScription looks great, the rest is total disappointment...

This is terrible....if this is premium, I don’t want their lower one. It’s like a bitter and bad Nat lite. Thanks Carter.

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.

Big bottle. Yellow, white head. Nose is strong green apple, flavour’s same, fairly sweet due to the apple, corn and dms in there as well. Tastes extremely cheap, I forgot how bad lagers could get, these Asian lagers are absolutely worse than American despite the "bottom 100" listings.

Had this on a flight from Beijing to Sydney. Light golden clear body with normal size head. Lemon, grass and hops in the nose. Hops and bitter in flavour and bitter in aftertaste.

April 29th, 2012 - A night out with Chinese food is usually an affair between me, the food, and a glass of water. But somebody must have ordered a beer for the table, and I wasn’t one to pass up a review opportunity. Knowing full well that “Yanjing Beer” was likely just a foreign pale lager, I went and took a sip anyway. The aroma is essentially absent, and the flavor is bubbly, light and also basically flavorless. This inoffensive brew can pair with a greasy, sauced up blob of pork or chicken finely, because there’s little chance you’d taste a flavorful beer anyway. But the extra calories on top of the fats slung onto my food make this a sipper - one or two sips, or just enough to get a fair evaluation of the flavor, and then I’m happy to pass what remains of the bottle to the gentleman on my left, who eagerly snorting hot and sour soup, accepts the respite from chilies and spice gratefully.
