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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
