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.

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.

Bottle from pikapp327. Pale pour with little to no head. Aroma is almost not there, but maybe bready. Taste is inoffensive and grainy.

wlajwl (4538) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Skunk in the aroma with a hint at the spring water. The appearance is a very clear gold. The flavor is of grains and has slight sweetness to it. Not anywhere near being great but honestly better than what was expected due to the the bottle giving the impression it would cause a skunk-fest.

Metalchopz (2595) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2011
Originally rated December 2008. Bought a six-pack of this at the LCBO, and had a few for our jam straight from the bottle. Was pretty decent. Now, from the glass. Pours a light golden colour with a big foamy white head, good retention, lots of small lacing lines and average carbonation. The aromas starts on grain malt, but ends up on the hoppy side. Crisp mouthfeel, but not watery, with a medium body. The taste is like the smell, starting off with the grain malt and going into a mildly bitter finish. This beer is nothing exceptional, but a bit better than the other swill Chinese brews we get here. Found it pretty hoppy from the bottle. Written on back label, imported by Hi-Bridge Consulting Corp. from Vancouver, B.C. Canada.
