2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bought a bottle in Calgary, Canada. Just called "Yanjing Beer" and nothing else but has the same ABV. as this one so I assumed it might be the same thing. Anyway, nose has rice, plain popcorn, sugar and something stringent. Sweet and light with zero depth and body. Finish is rice dominant.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
66 cl bottle. A clear pale yellow beer with a medium sized and fast disappearing white head. The aroma is lightly malty with notes of rice and corn. The flavour is sweet, artificial, industrial, with again some rice. Quite soft mouthfeel, light body, fizzy carbonation, short finish with very light bitterness. Very poor, almost only carbonated water.

Not even drinkable in a pinch. Corn tasting. Would never try this again. Can’t believe Piscator rated it a 2.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A fine looking lager, good mid gold colour, firm white head with a good bead. Nose is quite grassy with a slight maltiness, reminds me of Steinlager a bit. Palate is thin and pretty tasteless, I notice it has rice in its make up, so no surprise there then! 7/20 is higher than I’d normally give this style of beer, but its good looks increased its score!
I’m assuming that this is the correct beer. My example was from a bottle, and was the only 4.5% I could find on the list of the brewers beers.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(03.30.06) 630 ml green bottle purchased at Mei Fu Tian Restaurant, Beijing, China. Poured clear yellow with small white head. Average carbonation. Faint skunk and grass in the nose. Light bodied Chinese pale lager that starts with light malt sweetness with malt/corn flavor. Finishes dry with light malt fade. Compared to Yanjing 10oP and Yanjing 12oP Extra, all three tasted pretty much the same but the Yanjing 11 oP was relatively drier and crisp tasting and it went very well with Chinese food. This beer was the best of all three Yanjing beers.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Ok, the bottle I have just says "Yanjing Beer" and doesn’t look like any of the bottles I have seen. Pours golden with a big white head. Aroma is faint, light bready malts. Flavor is also light, bready, kind of stale tasting. Pretty meh.
