Yanjing Beer (4.5% alc./vol.for bottle and 5% alc. /vol. for can) is naturally brewed with mineral water, hops, rice and barley malt, resulting in a distinctly clean taste. Yanjing has a floral nose and dry, crisp malty smoothness that provides a refreshing finish with an undertone of hops

Raistlin (219) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2015
Pours bright yellow with nice white head that disperses almost immediately. Very flat. Medium texture. You can taste the hops and malt. No carbonation to speak of at all. Kind of bland.

ffbot (140) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Sweetest beer I’ve ever had. No complexity either, Corn, honey(?), citrus, odd aftertaste too. Metallic. Ugh

sudomorph (966) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2015
500ml can. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a one finger, white head. Aroma is pleasant with sweet grain and not a lot else. Taste is balanced. Slightly sweet grain, traditional, mild hops, and a short ending. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall a big name beer from China. Not a lot going on but done well enough.

beerdriker (1) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014 does not count
very crisp, refreshing taste, goes well with spicy food, very little after taste, provides a relaxing buzz, thoroughly recommended --

jmgreenuk (6213) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottled version @4.5% from the Villa Market Ambassador, Bangkok. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is sweet malt. The flavour is light bitter sweet with a watery mineral malt light hop palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Pretty awful really. I feel sorry for the Chinese!

visionthing (3888) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2014
33cl green bottle (4,5% ABV.) from Mendoza, Albir. Pours pale golden with a white head. Strange, chemical aroma with notes of cooked vegetables and overripe fruits. Medium sweet with some acidity. Is this really beer? Horrible stuff!

Lagerboy (1663) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
