jann3 (98) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Pale yellow, white fizzy head. Medium carbonation. Slightly malty nose. Very mild malty taste, with even milder bitterness. Refreshing stuff, but pretty tasteless. (330 ml can, ABV 3,6 version, original gravity 10P)

GoufCustom (795) - HONG KONG - JUL 17, 2013


580 ml bottle at abv 4.5% bought at ParkN’Shop Superstore in Fanling.

Piss pale golden yellow colour; One finger head and soapy crumpety white foam which last for about 2 minutes; Minimal lacing with fizzy carbonation; Quite pungent smell of malt, soap water, green apple, light bread, rice, carbonated soda, hint of citrus and grass; Sweet taste of malt, with strong apple juice, wort, rice, wet cardboard, faint citrus and raw grassy hops; Light body, quite watery but sluggish palate; Mouth feel is poor, unbalanced cloying sweet wort, with lots of apple juice, malt, rice and wet cardboard. Feel a bit like Blue Girl and Sonderberg. Shitty! Hoppiness is faint citrus nose and taste, raw and unpleasant grassy hops, minimal bitterness for a sweet finish; Slightly dry after taste, Sweet and raw to mouth.

Comments: All these slogans about zero-oxidation and fresh fermentation on the label are total bullshit. This brew is just a batch of over oxidized wort being served to innocent drinking public. Cloying from start to finish with no redeeming value whatsoever. Drain pours!

PlainsDrifter (75) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Lightly spicy, slightly grassy. Pours clear with white head and medium carbonation. Very drinkable and refreshing.

omhper (19308) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2010
Canned in Changchun, Jilin. Clear pale yellow, no head. Aroma of blueberry pie and green hops. Sweetish with clean mouthfeel and lightbody. Grainy and salty, unusually hoppy for a Chinese lager. Noticable salty bitterness.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2010
Yellow colored with little white head. Biting aroma with some grassy-lemony note. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is similar with same biting grassy note in start, aftertaste dries with some unclean grainy tone.

alagnak (467) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2009
Can on an Air China flight...smells sickly sweet, i’d say corn, but according to the ingredients list, there’s no corn (not that I trust ingredient lists in China). Tastes syrupy sweet, a little rotting grass flavor there, but mainly industrial sweetness. Finishes with a puckering chemical aftertaste that was particularly offensive.

bembelembe (216) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 30, 2009
Corny-rice taste. Low bitterness. Watery. Medium-low carbonated. Small head. Pale yellow color.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2004
Pale straw colour. Hay-like aroma. Very thin body. Hint of graininess but that’s about it.
