UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 Large bottle (1L I think), bought in Taiwan. Classic clear-golden yellow pale lager appearance. Surprisingly, I can pick out some green hops in the aroma. Palate is on the thin side, but finishes nicely with a very mild hop note. Better than I expected-- I wonder if this is because I had it in its country of origin (and maybe therefore it was fresher)?

Canned @ home, courtesy of blackipa. Thanks for the fucken Taiwanese dong, bra! Pours a bit hazy yellow appearance with a thin white head. Rice, zesty lemon, a bit spicy, sweet malty aroma. Bitter, quite watery, a touch citrusy, lightly metallic flavor. Bleh.

Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2009
Thisted tasting. Courtesy of After4ever, thanks Tom for this new country! It is golden with a white head. The aroma is mild with notes of malt and light fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of malt, light caramel and light fruit. It is easy to drink – and above all – a new country.

gyllenbock (10025) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2015
Can from a local shop in Taipei. Clear light golden with a white head. A typical boring Asian Lager. Thin and sweet with cardboard, light fruit and metal. Really boring.

Bottle. Light gold with a white head. Grainy, slightly corny, with a little bit of a dirty grainy finish. Not awful.

On of those steel cans brought back from Taiwan thanks to Wayne. Thanks a ton man! Pours a clear golden color with a tiny white head. The aroma is sweet malts, rice and grainy notes. The taste is smooth; lots of rice and grainy flavors, some light earth malts, light hops and a very clean and light flavor. Very quaffable and clean. Not bad at all. My first Taiwanese beer! Thanks Wayne.

Erzengel (9751) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2014
Pale in the glass, grainy in the nose. The beer starts very watery, slightly sweet. The mainpart is on the one hand watery, on the other hand slightly sweetish-grainy. In the aftertaste smooth water, slightly sweet with the typical rice-beer-aroma.
OK, but nothing special. --> 7/12/6/6

Not that good. Only ever drink it if the 7-11 or family mart is out of the gold medal brew. The aftertaste verges on foul without completely ever crossing the line.

bytemesis (9497) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Can purchased from the local Ranch 99 -- too lazy to input it as a place just to show distribution in California. Pours clear golden with a medium white head that dissipates slowly with some lacing.. Aroma is corn syrup, grass, cardboard. flowers. Flavor is actually not bad, although with a cardboard note that is annoying. Light sweet, not much actual bitterness, but refreshing.

ogivlado (8316) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 25, 2016
Canned 330ml. -Pale golden coloured, medium sized white head that went away slowly, whiff of acidity in the nose. Distinct rice taste with notes of boiled vegetables and touch of grain. Only the memory of new country remains.
