I drank Harbin while I had lamb steak for dinner and I did not like this. I guess Harbin would get along with some Chinese food, but the beer itself is not very tasty. I felt like it contained some impurities which shadow the pure beers flavor.

Bottle. Pale Gold. Light, mild, slightly sweet, lightly malted lager. Not particularly exciting, but it is drinkable. (2008)

Well its not bad for the style at least. Inoffensive and refreshing...........light flavors of corn, some malt and maybe a hint of wheat.

Dse. Hotelvrelse i Geyongdo. Hvad man kan forvente af kedelig makro lager. En del hvede i smagen men ellers kedelig. Mest interessante var den gamle mde at bne dsen p.

Canned. Lots of wheat taste. Very thin with a semi sweet aftertaste that turns to bitter. Okay.

Some people might claim that this beer is thin and watery, with a strong taste of either nothing, or of rice and corn. Its pale, its thin, it has very little hop, and i LOVE it. It works really well with simple Chinese food like congee and preserved radish. Maybe not what I would serve with peking duck, maybe not what i would serve with kung pao chicken, but with simple hainan steamed chicken it is perfect.

Very pale gold with nearly not head in its traditional Chinas bowl. Sweet aroma and taste. Rice, light hops. Better than average Chinese beers.
