China’s #1 selling beer, brewed with spring water for a crisp, refreshing taste. Editor’s note: It is not known what the specs of exported Yanjing are, but in the Chinese market the main Yanjing Beer is 10P and 3.6%.

Can @ a AIR China flight. Pours golden with a huge white head. Overall a very sweet beer. Notes of bread and cooked vegtables.

Big head, which collapsed pretty quickly. Typical light lager aroma. Golden yellow body. Slightflavor of cooked corn. Cheap lager to go with my Chinese food I bought at 99 Ranch Market.

Green Bottle: Pours fizzy gold with a quick, foamy white head. Sweet corn aroma. Taste is corn, grain malt, water, paper. Fizzy, but flat.... About what you’d expect....except for the astonishing lack of skunk.....Don’t know how they managed that.

Bottle. Pale yellow pour with thin white head. Very little flavor of corn and grass. Not much good to say about this one, I can’t say I enjoyed it. Just not for me.

Westkyoto77 (501) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 5, 2014
Can on Air China flight. Pale pissy gold. Insipid, corny aroma. Weak carbonation. Straw, corn and weak-ass hops. Not appetising in the slightest, but some moisture for the throat.

VinegarStroke (261) - Napa, California, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle (330ml): Pale gold, clear pours with light head that dissipates very quickly. Lifted, malt, citrus, funky almost skunks. Dank wood profile. Sweet and no bitterness or sourness. Feels cloying. Short and little flavor. I assume the only time to drink this is in high humidity while eating hot sechuan food. Very weak. Needs more co2.

Bottle, given to me by Rockley. Very pale yellow pour, sudsy white head. Low aroma of papery grains. Grainy watery palate with a dry boxboard finish. Oxidized and weak.

Astaldo (161) - Bremen, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2013
Pale beer, the medium head disappeared quite quickly. Aroma of grass and malt, not very pleasant however. Hopes are hardly distinguishable. Roses are red, their spikes are green, the taste is so bitter, the body is thin.
