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%.

Kita (1590) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 11, 2012
Bottled, 0.5l. Clear pale golden color with small frothy white head and low carbonation. Aroma of adjunct malts, mainly corn, with some cardboard notes, too. Light malty start, followed by grassy taste, but not hoppy. Plain mouthfeel with dry and crisp finish. Light body, thin texture and soft carbonation in palate. Poor industrial lager...

This is the Budwieser of Beijing. A working man’s beer that goes for about 33 cents US in a 600ml bottle. Flat, even highly iced down and newly opened, the equivilent of Koelsh but without the character, or any character, it reminds me now of off tasting water with a hint of something called "beer." avoid avoid avoid

Not a bad lager. Some sweet grainy aromas and flavours. Interesting apple flavour up front. Quite decent.

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.

canuck_j (80) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 12, 2012
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.
