Bottle. Poured pale with a fizzy, quick white head. Skunk aroma with vegetable, grain, caramel. The flavor found grain and vegetable. Light and crisp.

Bottle claims to be #1 selling beer in China. Itís just a tasteless, watery, cheap lager. Not terribly offensive. but not good either.

Tastes like emptiness. Is that a buddhist concept? If so, the beer could be seriously anti-establishment in China. Unfortunately to me, it tastes like crap. Maybe I lack culture... Got in a white can in 7-11 in Taiwan

The main Yanjing you buy in the 600ml bottle for 3 kuai everywhere in Beijing is a pale, sour beer. It is light bodied, with a little bit of grainy taste. It drinks quickly and you can drink a fair bit of it relatively painlessly.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
TPSA. Pours a clear gold with a noticeable head. It smells like -- well -- lager. it tastes like lager -- a little adjunct, a little metal, a little rice, a little toast. Finishes average. Itís a Local Ubiquitous Lager In A Green Bottle; thatís really all I can say about it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden yellow, 1.5-finger white head, seems to have very strong carbonation. Head doesnít stick around, reducing to a skim in ~10 seconds nor is there any lacing to speak of. Nose is intensely skunky, but then itís a "Beer in a Green Glass Bottle" which seems to be code for "Skunky Pale Lager" though itís either been ages since I last had one, or this one isnít really that bad, because Iím kinda digging the aroma. The skunk and light metal notes are balanced by a touch of sweetness, and some light grassiness. Not mindblowing, but appetizing enough, I suppose. Flavours are crisp and lightly earthy, with some nettly skunk and a touch of metal. This isnít one-note apples either, there is a touch of grass and some mouthfeel and body here too. All things considered Iíd call myself pleasantly surprised. Itís not life-changing by any means, but you could do far worse in a Chinese Pale Lager.
