Skunky aroma accompanied by notes of hay. Appearance is impressive...... a crystal golden color with a white frothy head that disappates quickly. Tastes surprised me.... Light sweetness with an impressively fresh aftertaste. Usually beers this skunky are biting in the end, but this one is very smooth! Light body, with a thin texture. Carbonation is lively. Finishes long and amazingly smooth. Decent beer.

Pours a clear straw color, with a pillowy white head. Aroma includes notes of tart apples, sweet pear, and some crackery malts. Tasting notes include apple, pear, tannins, soapy, and a sweet finish.

Not as bad as I expected sweet bamboo like flavor mouth carbonated a bit over the top. Almost like a gin. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bork (318) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Decent brew with a solid, sturdy maltiness and a little bit of body. Noticeable flowers and soap are not appealing but do not take over. Overly sweet and watery finish.

Sure, it’s a typical North American style Pale Lager. Still, it’s from China, so that’s cool. The flavor is standard, but good.

Big head, which collapsed pretty quickly. Typical light lager aroma. Golden yellow body. Slightflavor of cooked corn. Cheap lager to go with my Chinese food I bought at 99 Ranch Market.

Patrickctenchi (3969) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2014
Green Bottle: Pours fizzy gold with a quick, foamy white head. Sweet corn aroma. Taste is corn, grain malt, water, paper. Fizzy, but flat.... About what you’d expect....except for the astonishing lack of skunk.....Don’t know how they managed that.

Bottle. Pale yellow pour with thin white head. Very little flavor of corn and grass. Not much good to say about this one, I can’t say I enjoyed it. Just not for me.
