Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop (my annual obligatory visit t kick the tires) - 330 ml green bottle. Pours a very light golden with a very tiny white bubbly head. Aroma has some sulfur notes, a hint of spent grain. Flavor is rather bland with some dry grassy notes, a hint of boiled corn, some paper bag notes. Dry and thin mouthfeel. Drinkable.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of grain and skunk. Nothing positive to say. If you need to rate a beer from China, I hope you can find something else.

This tastes absolutely like I would expect it to - disgusting. Aroma is skunky and taste is like moldy hay. Looks bright yellow, but no head and lightly carbonated. The palate is tacky and this beer leaves a terrible aftertaste.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
AROMA: some floral hops slight malt
APPEARANCE: light golden yellow. white head.
TASTE: distinctly lacking in ingredients for the no. 1 beer from China.
Guess no one in China can afford real beer.
PALATE: Very light . good carbonation. CO2 is cheap.
OVERALL: a great beer if you compare it to Budweiser or Kokanee. otherwise a very disappointing excuse for a lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle- Pours a pale golden color with a small head and no real lacing. Aroma is of grain, fruity sweetness and just a bit musty. Flavor is of grain with some fruity sweetness. Not much bitterness and a sticky finish. Light body, quite smooth but nothing else. Pretty bland. Not a beer I would seek out. It does go well with Chinese dishes and not much else.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The second beer on world beer Sunday this time from China. This one claims to be the number one selling beer in China so it must be good.
Pours a pale golden straw color with a decent white head that shows moderate retention and minimal lace. Smell is sweet honey like malts, slightly grainy, a bit or earth, a hint of bread, slight skunk. Taste is sweet grainy honey like malt up front, stays quite sweet through out, minimal hop flavor. Medium to thin body, moderate level of carbonation, sweet candy like mouth coating mouthfeel. Number one huh? I’d take Budweiser over this in a heartbeat. Hell I’d take Tsingtao over this too. This is overly sweet with almost no redeeming qualities. One and done.
