Bottle. Poured clear pale color with a medium frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet grainy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a light to medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a below average beer.
In aroma it’s sweet, malty, a bit sugar-ish. It’s cristal clear, no head. Golden color beer. In taste it’s sweet, rather not very tasty. Watery, highly carbonated. In overall it’s quite poor. hopdog (12341) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle. I pulled this off my to drink shelf but have no memory of when or even why I bought this one ... Golden color with a white head. Typical Pale Lager ... ALLOVATE (3002) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2014
Mid gold, bright as bright, with a fine bead and a missing scalpal froth. Aroma of floating leaf paddies, mint and lemon grass - clean and fragrant. Mildly parching, dry, crisp and bitter on the palate. Light bodied and effervescent. Subtle, dusty malt with a hint of coloured, toasty grains. Short finish; floral, minty and peppered. Sour tang grips the side of the tongue; all in balance. Nothing offensive here. Clean cut and sessionable. Lawnmower to the extreme but tidy enough!!

Bottle from Hongkong: Pale golden color, nearly no head. Flavor is very grainy, corny, cheap. Nearly no hop or bitterness. Poor, very cheap taste and close to water! jtclockwork (16424) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2013 Bottle at some restaurant near New Beer because we couldn’t get a cab. Pours clear old gold with white head. Nose and taste of corn, cardboard, rice, skunk, tortilla malt and old barley. Unpleasant. Light body.

Clear, slightly brassy gold with a frothy white head.
Light grain scent...unbelievably: NO SKUNK !
Taste is a heavy, peppery bread-cardboard affair.
Rough, but without the strong sour grain malt found frequently in other Asian Lagers.
Not good..but not overly awful. ronaldtheriot (1917) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Kingway Beer (Premium Lager) has a thin-to-medium, white head and a mostly clear, golden appearance, with some lacing and very fine particulate matter floating about. Some streaming bubbles are present. The aroma is of sweet, lightly toasted barley malt, and the flavor is of sweet, lemony, pale malt, cracker, a touch of paper, and just a kiss of the hops. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Kingway Beer finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, drinkable, mild, and semi-dry. Overall, this is a very good beer, and I think it is certainly worth a try. RJT

Bottle at Tokyo Sushi Buffet in Pittsburgh and a guess that I had the "12" and not some earlier incarnation. The nice waitress said she would have to check to see if she had a Kingway in stock and seemed surprised to bring one back to the table for my consumption. On the pour there’s an impressive burst of white cloudy foam which was a delight but the rest of the beer failed. I’d venture to say this not only goes poorly with Asian food but that the rest of the culinary world would be similarly disappointed. Arve_Christian (5111) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2012

Medium white head. Clear deep golden body with carbonation. Light grainy vegetal aroma. Dry-sweet perfumy grainy taste with sugary notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel with some heat. Dryish perfumy sugary aftertaste with floral notes. It’s not bad, but too sweet. I imagine I can taste the alcohol, too. (0.64l bottle, Taste, Hang Hao, Hong Kong.)
