jercraigs (10000) - Toronto, Ontario, - AUG 15, 2003
Blackout beer #1! Drank during massive blackout across Ontario. Pale yellow, and fizzy. Pours big white head that vanishes. Smells faintly of hops. Bitter finish that doesn't linger on the tongue. Bit of alcohol esters in the background.

Cimbasso (808) - - NOV 9, 2016
Sampled from a can purchased in Shanghai. Crystal clear gold colour with a white head that quickly dissipates. Little aroma, and a corn syrup malt flavour. Typical Asian lager - refreshing, light and without much flavour. Watery mouthfeel and little bitterness. Some grassiness and a sweetish rice flavours, but generally rather underwhelming.

Jow (3586) - New York, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle at Peculier Pub in NYC. Dirty blonde pour and I mean dirty. No good nose. Tastes of grass, cardboard, lemon lime, sour milk. Not very good but still drinkable

Iphonephan (6407) - McLean/Jackson Hole, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2016
From a bottle. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Aroma of rice and corn. Flavors same. Pretty typical Asian lager.

A friend brought me a can of this back. Smell is grass. Taste is pretty sweet, even after rugby practice this isnt ideal.

ogivlado (7311) - 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.

Luneylane (59) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - JUL 5, 2016
There is nothing classic about this beer. If you visit Taiwan, spend an additional few $NT and buy a bottle of Gold Medal / Jin Pai instead. Its not very nice at all, and I never drink it.

Can @!Sunworld Dynasty Hotel Taipei. Pale golden yellow, reasonable head. Resin vegetable malt aroma. Vegetable flavour. Bland aftertaste. Nasty lager.

Bottle from Mitsuyas. Clear gold with a small white head. Light grain and corn aromas with some grassy notes. Average carbonation with a slight grainy mouthfeel, but mostly watery. Easy drinking. No off flavors. Typical pale lager.
