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

ronaldtheriot (1573) - 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

jercraigs (8794) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2013
2013-01-20. Crisp yellow body with a small white head. Mild aroma, light cereally grain. Very light alcohol. Flavour is a bit odd with an almost cidery fruity quality. Average to light bodied palate. Fairly inoffensive considering, but I don’t think I want to let it warm up. Can from LCBO

Have to say I don’t expect much from this. Very clear pale golden pour with a ton of white frothy head that faded very quickly. Grassy scent mixed with something odd. Sweet like Gasoline. Oily and sweet. Lots of grassiness and sweet malts. If this truly is the No 1 Beer From China I feel sorry for the Chinese. Not enjoyable but drinkable. This will be my first and last Yanjing
