It comes in a nice bottle with a cool logo that says "Gold Medal", and "World Class Beer", but they could honestly say whatever they want; "The First Beer in Space", "Ancient Indochine Cure For Cancer", or "The President’s Favorite Beer". What matters though is the beer itself, and unfortunately it is kind of gross, and now I have a pint of it to choke down.

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.

JPDIPSO (6223) - 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.

Hazy, cloudy amber pour. Mild aroma. If one is thursty - drinkable but nothing special

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.

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.

bbertels (485) - NORWAY - NOV 19, 2016
Backlog. Unmemorable bottle of beer drunk accompanying Chinese food at Hawker centre, Singapore. Macrostuff.

1.8
Cimbasso (892) - - 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.
