COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

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

reebtogi (4039) - 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.

jercraigs (7456) - 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

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.

Geiserich (3270) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - AUG 6, 2013
Can: Golden color, white head. Flavor is sweetis, malty/grainy and light corny. Few to no hops in the end. Astringent finish. Could be worse.

bulldogops (1039) - 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.

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.
