Bottle at Night Markets, Hong Kong. It is another typical Asian-style macro lager with barely there aroma and taste of corn syrup, rice, cardboard and a very light hop presence. Light-medium body with a watery texture. Clear straw yellow appearance with transient small white head.

Fairly bland and on the sweet side. Not much hop in flavor or aroma. Probably some rice and or corn. Another typical Chinese macro.

adasko (1882) - Poznan, POLAND - MAR 17, 2016
Golden color, cristal clear. Nice, but small frothy head. Super malty, esters, fruity in aroma. Has also a note of rice in it. For a mass produced beer quite pleasant. Almost completely tasteless, but at least it’s not very bad. Definitely to sweet, no bitterness. Light in the mouthfeel, not carbonated to heavily.

MarkoNm (2345) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 23, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, Topped with a average white frothy head, no real retention. Aroma of malts is mild, smelly grainy notes present. Taste is watery, sweet, no nice bitterness to speak of, metallic a bit. Poor effort.

Erzengel (7757) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle in Macau. Fruity-malty, very neutral beginning. Sweetish malt, grain, no bitterness. Round but flat. Boring stuff.

magicmn (156) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 27, 2015

AgentAle (1528) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
Aroma is a light sweet graininess with slight dryness. Fairly bland overall. Appearance is a clear gold body with thin pearl head that retains poorly.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - JUL 10, 2014
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.

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.
