1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear yellowish. Pretty crummy. A typical example of cheap mass-market pale lager, though its definitely not the worst. I hope there’s no lead in it.

Bottle. Pours a clear light golden color with a moderate white head. Nose is a little sweet and skunky like so many export lagers are. Taste is much the same, and unappealing. Meh.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Sprout’s: Poured with a thick white foam head while a light golden blonde that actually looked darker than most other Chinese pale lagers. Aroma is slightly skunky but has all the typical scents of a cheap beer brewed with adjuncts perhaps rice. The beer has minor notes of malt and skunk but nothing near European green bottle pale lagers and has a sweet finish. Really boring but good price for a bomber.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
11.2oz bottle. Pours really light. Aroma of white bread and hints of the lightest hops. Flavor the same. Light. Not good.

Can, pours a nice bright yellow, the flavour is a nice clean crisp and refreshing flavour. Overall, pretty yummy

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Perhaps the most interesting feature of this ordinary lager is its striking aroma. Some people call may it "skunky", but as there are no skunks in China, I place this strong musky scent as a blend of civet cats, tibethan macaques and red pandas. If not repulsive, the aroma is somewhat amusing. The rest is just a rather poor lager, that will be pleasant if taken very cold after a day’s work in the chinese countryside. Just another note for the rather waxy palate: one wonders what kind of shortcuts are being used on the making of this beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml can, clean gold color, with a frothy bubbly white head, faint grainy pale, munich malt nose with a light rice cereal, faint vanilla note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a light honey pale, pilsener, munich malty character, with a faint mineral, metallic, flowery fruity ripe apple hop flavour, leading trowards a crisp pale, pilsener maltiness, subtle lingering hop bittering finish.

Mainstream Lager beer. Very light and watery taste. Comparable with Miller or Budweiser...

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Crystal-clear, pale yellow and flat. No head at all. There’s virtually no aroma, and the beer drinks with a musty, corny malt flavor. Not so good ... (#4772, 8/6/2012)
