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

jercraigs (9835) - 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

jmgreenuk (7669) - 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!

reebtogi (5682) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 4, 2011
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.
