2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500mL can, likbow. Took me forever to check if I’d had this. Took almost as long to find it in the list of near-identical beers on the brewer’s page. Pours a nice yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is indistinct and lousy, just some garbage malts and adjuncts, with some tin. Flavour is remarkably better, very sweet but also smooth and not harsh on the palate. Off-flavours are present in the finish but are rather minor. On a hot August evening this is actually enjoyable, especially for mass-produced Chinese shite. I probably just ingested any number of horrifying chemical agents, but oh well, such is life in the 21st Century.

Mine is a bottle, but I am sure it’s this version. China’s number one seller, but Ratebeer is banned by CCP. Bad beer scores perhaps? A real skunk of a beer. Like Heineken and then some. Also straw aroma, and color as well. Somewhat metallic. Tastes just slightly bitter - not much else, corn maybe. At least it’s crisp. Would be a good lawn mowing beer. Another so-so national lager tasked with being a national flagship.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Someone tell me why Chinese brewers feel inclined to put out sooo many variations of a pale lager.... why not put out one decent lager and let the market eat it up? Variation costs money! Amidst the usual boring rice-head and yellow body there is a faint but compelling aroma of malts and caramel, though sadly buried under tin and cabbage. Flavour is like 7-up mixed with weak lager beer. Odd lemony aftertaste. I have nothing else to say.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle listed at 5%ABV pours a pale golden color with a frothy white head that settles down to very little lace. Aroma is cheap grains and hops. Taste is standard grainy and hoppy macro beer. Somewhat undesirable.

500ml can from the NLC in St. John’s. I can’t say it tastes bad, because it doesn’t taste like anything. Refreashing and fizzy.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 ml can from The Beer Store. Pours a clear golden yellow with large, rocky white head. Aroma is quite mild - sweet grains and a hint of fruitiness. Taste is also light grains and a little fruit. A touch watery. Not much finish. Nothing offensive in there but nothing interesting or good either.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Can - 500ml. Boring golden body with a fading white bubbly head. Very weak malty aroma with some corny and soapy hints. Its bland malty taste is carries rotten cereals and metallic notes. Finish is almost non-existent. Bad stuff.
