A pleasant aroma upon opening but after that its all down hill.A strange mouthfeel with a lingering dryness.It claims to have won gold medals but were? Reminds me of Heineken-yes its that poor.
Taiwan Beer Classic pours a clear golden color with a short-lived head. The hop notes in the nose are inoffensive and featureless, while the malt notes are somewhere between hay and white bread. The grainy attack hints at starchiness as well as steamed rice and is followed by a little grassiness from the hops. The carbonation is soft to average and inoffensive. The characterless finish is slightly acidic. Drinkable but faceless. gripweed57 (2731) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2017
From old tasting notes. Clear gold color. Foamy white head. Yeasty tart malt aroma. Rather sweetish grainy malt flavor. Lingering toasted malt midtaste. Very faint hop finish and aftertaste.m JK (6240) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2017
From a bottle. Some rice in the aroma. Lightly sweet, but overall very light, low flavo, and drinkable with food. It is not bad, just not much there to enjoy. Nicke80 (809) - Södertälje, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2017
50 cl bottle at capital hotel taipei. Pours golden with big head. Mild malty aroma with Malty taste. Not much happening here. JPDIPSO (6257) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Hazed dirty golden color. Moderate sized, light beige head. Sweet aromas, with some toasted malt and apple cider. A bit of grass and almond. Fuller feel, but a touch lifeless. Sweeter flavors. Middle gains some grain and mild flora. Slightly acidic in the finish and linger, bringing back the reminders of cider.

33cl can, nearly frozen. Pours a pale yellow, big white foamy head. It smells skunky and "beery". I’m fairly certain this is quite fresh because I’ve never seen it and the carton it was in proclaimed "new". It smells pretty good though once you let the sulphur die down. Smells like bread and herbs, rice, it smells fresh. Flavor isn’t as good, it is sulphury, salty, but dry and crackery, hint of maltiness. Its ok. One of the better ones in thsi style. johnnnniee (4376) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Bottle in trade from Solidfunk, thanks for the country!
Slightly hazy light golden color with a thin wisp of a white head. Light skunk, pilsner and a touch of floral earth and faint metal. Better than I expected really.
