0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
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!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.
