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.

Sure, itís a typical North American style Pale Lager. Still, itís from China, so thatís 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.

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 youíd expect....except for the astonishing lack of skunk.....Donít 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 canít say I enjoyed it. Just not for me.

Westkyoto77 (520) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 5, 2014
Can on Air China flight. Pale pissy gold. Insipid, corny aroma. Weak carbonation. Straw, corn and weak-ass hops. Not appetising in the slightest, but some moisture for the throat.

VinegarStroke (280) - Napa, California, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle (330ml): Pale gold, clear pours with light head that dissipates very quickly. Lifted, malt, citrus, funky almost skunks. Dank wood profile. Sweet and no bitterness or sourness. Feels cloying. Short and little flavor. I assume the only time to drink this is in high humidity while eating hot sechuan food. Very weak. Needs more co2.

DuffMan (6737) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle, given to me by Rockley. Very pale yellow pour, sudsy white head. Low aroma of papery grains. Grainy watery palate with a dry boxboard finish. Oxidized and weak.
