This is the Budwieser of Beijing. A working manís beer that goes for about 33 cents US in a 600ml bottle. Flat, even highly iced down and newly opened, the equivilent of Koelsh but without the character, or any character, it reminds me now of off tasting water with a hint of something called "beer." avoid avoid avoid

Bottle. Sour barley malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet barley malt and lightly bitter hay flavor. Not horrible and surprisingly an import beer in a green bottle that was only slightly skunked.

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 (335) - 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, 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.
