3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bottle from Citysuper in the basement of Sogo at Zhongxiao Fuxing, drunk at home. Aroma: grassy hops. Appearance: pale amber, slightly hazy, minimal head. Palate: light-bodied, rather thin texture, soft carbonation. Reassuringly bitter at the end, but doesn’t hang around. Taste: medium bitter, though not sure about ’Hop King’. Hops do predominate. A respectable pilsner-type, but nothing remarkable.
