2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 ml can bought at ParkNShop Superstore in Fanling.
Clear light blonde colour; One quarter finger head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Fair sticky lacing and very slight carbonation; Light pungent smell of malt, with corn, floral sugar, lemon and grass; Mid to light sweet taste of fairly light malt, with light corn, light floral, very light molasses, light lemon and light bitter grassy hops; Light body, thin palate; Mouth feel is pretty clean for a macro Pale, no off taste, just some touches of light corn. Tastable floral, light sweet, some lemon to round. Okay… Hoppiness is lemon and light grass in nose, and lighter in taste; Bitterness is low but notable for an abrupt, low astringent malty floral finish; Slightly dry after taste. Easy and light bitter to mouth.
Comments: Not sure whether this one is made in China or Hong Kong, but for once, a Asian macro Pale without rice adjunct is a rarity, and slight corny element aside, its taste is clean and fairly malty as well. Bland but drinkable.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml can in HK. No idea on appearance as I drank it out of the can. Aroma is grass and wet straw. Taste is minimal but inoffensive. Pretty sure the one I had was brewed in HK but anywho...

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale beer. Very light-bodied, grassy and metallic, yet quite easy to drink.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
I now firmly believe that the tag "export" on a beer does not imply quality, but quite the opposite - essentially every "export" beer I’ve encountered has been on the lower end of the beer awesomeness spectrum. Would this one be any different? It has that macro-lager foamy disappearing head and gold body, with a grass and tin aroma pushed up by carbonation. The flavour is very weak caramel with an incredibly watery mouthfeel. Not offensive, just not there at all.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can. Purchased at local Hong Kong grocery store. Pours an incredible light transparent yellow with fluffy white head that quickly dissipates. Nose is light sugars. Body is very thin but sharply and finely carbonated. Some flavors of sugar and hop? One of the lightest and most flavorless beers I’ve ever had. But surprisingly endearing.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2007 Canned. Clear golden, ultra brief head. Fruity nose with crystallic hard mouthfeel. Light bodied, sharp and raw - yet thin and watery. Sugar instead of bitterness.
