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.

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 (1305) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - 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.

Kita (1095) - 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. Standard boring lager flavour from China, could be worse. Sweet in the finish

mile (3007) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle. Light golden, very small and fully diminishing head. Light, malty - corn and sweetish aroma, faint vegetables. Body is light, malty – corn and sweetish flavor, faint vegetables. Finish is short, malty – corn and lightly sweetish, faint vegetables and light alcohol. Almost like water.

EithCubes (4944) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2013
11.2oz bottle, green glass, no abv marking, assuming this rating is in the right spot (GTIN=819538001508). Nose is sultry with corn, light dust and flowers. Dull clear golden with a soapy white head. Ultra-watery body sweet and grainy, no corn here, faintly floral. No bitterness whatsoever, but at least the sweetness is controlled; there is a slowly grating and warming sensation at the back of the throat and something of a foul aftertaste. Strange, considering how nondescript the main thrust is.

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.

Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Yellow in color with a small white head. Aroma is of corn and skunkiness. Taste is of corn and grain. Blah.
