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 (165) - 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.

I donít know why iím rating this. I guess itís beer? i donít know... It pours a light golden colour, not too bad to look at from pilsner or lager standards. Then you taste it, itís sickly sweet, must have added sugar, some strange sour tang to it i canít really place. Not something I would ever spend money on. As far as mass produced beers go this one lays on the lowest rung of the beer ladder... the bladder. yeah! something funny came out of this! donít ever buy a six pack of this, if you want to try it for the sake of trying it get a single can and give it the old college try. You will be disappointed. If you like mass produced beer there are hundreds that are way better, and there are THOUSANDS of proper craft brewed beers that are much more worthy of your attention. Yanjing? NOjing!!!

Not much to say here. Rather bland, boring and uncharismatic beer. Itís cheep for a reason.

GTAEgeek (1586) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle. Pale yellow pour, with a small, bubbly, white head. The aroma is rice, pine, tangerines, and apples. Very sweet, with some fruity esters. Light body, a little effervescent, and silky. Overall, this is a surprisingly flavorful, light, and fruity lager.

tomashopkins (10) - Shanghai, CHINA - MAY 21, 2013
Liquid bread for the masses. About as plebian and pedestrian as beer gets. Lifeless. Best served headache cold. An alcohol level of about.05 or less, as near to near beer as beer gets in China.
