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

visionthing (4831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - 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!

ljthiessen (1138) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Can. Pours a pale, clear yellow with a bubbly head. Looks and tastes like ginger ale. Sweet aroma, cereals and a little floral. No hops to be found. Flavour is sweet, light and a little malty. Not much here at all. I’ve had worse, but this doesn’t have much going for it.

bulldogops (2270) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Rating #927 - January 20, 2014 - I know I’ve had this before but the HiBridge rep was pouring all kinds of crazy Asian liqueurs and spirits so why not a beer? - Clear yellow pour, bubbly white foam. No retention. Aroma is grassy, euro lager. Palate is clean, crisp, inoffensive lager malt , lightly hopped. Very bland.

ronaldtheriot (1796) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - APR 25, 2013
Yanjing Beer has a thick, white head and a clear, bubbly, golden appearance, with some thin lacing left behind. The aroma is sugary sweet and grainy. Tastse is of the same, with a bit of paper and some light bittering thrown in. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Yanjing Beer finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and easy going. Overall, this is a very good beer, and I am so glad I was able to try it. RJT
