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.

Bottle courtesy of ericandersnavy. Bottle marked Yanjing Beer. Clear light yellow. Small white head. Smell is there. Stale grain and soured notes. Taste is slightly sweet. Kind of a malt liquor flavor. Old pumpkin scents turn up as it warms.

rauchbier (3598) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2006
Bottle, from Chopstix Asian food store in Grimsby. Pale gold, shortlived white head and gentle condition. Gentle grassy/skunky herbal hoppiness and trace fruitiness in the nose, quite foul in the mouth with some initial soft graininess turning quite soapy and chemicaly phenolic. Short dry finish with a worrying touch of chlorine.

12 oz. bottle -- Don’t bother. All I could think when I was drinking this weak, yellow, fizzy beer was that the Chinese must have as bad a taste in beer as many people here in the US. The flavor is fairly inoffensive, but has nothing to offer either. It pours with a thin, rapidly dissipating head. The commercial description claim of long-lasting foam is baffling. I guess they just made that up. And "sharp beer strength"? heh... right. Avoid it.

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.

mkel07 (3339) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2010
330ml bottle. Pale, thin and watery with a skunky malt aroma. Like the bodythe white head is quite thin and miserable. Not much substance. Not the worst beer I have ever had but it close.

theisti (3217) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 31, 2012
11.2 oz green bottle gifted to me as part of a World Market beers of the world 9 pack. The pour is a clear yellow golden with a 2 inch white head that breaks down quickly with with thick bubbles. The aroma is cereal grain, lightly sweet, faint and not much going on. The taste is a weird chemical sweetness right away, unpleasant, followed by a flat floral sweet, and then a bit of cardboard in the back. The palate is light to medium bodied, low carbonation level, and the dirty vegetal finish. Flat, watery and flabby, I could only drink a few ounces of this. Gross stuff.

Faint smell of corn, pale yellow, pours large white short lived head. Taste has a trace of corn syrup. Thin. What the heck was this?
