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.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.
