1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle (courtesy of my cousin who picked this up on a work trip for me); pours clear pale gold with a white head; malty aroma with some grass and lemon notes; taste is sweet malt with lemon and grass hints; finish is dry with some light bitterness; just a hint of skunk as the beer is about a week past the 18 day range on the bottle cap but otherwise fairly standard pale lager

Others have noted that this is packaged in green bottles, so itís skunked. Solution: have it on tap! Served draught in a jug at a Taiwanese restaurant in Taipei. Simple, fresh, dry with subtle hop bitterness. Very refreshing. Great with food. Just donít get it in the bottle.

I canít tell the difference between this and íGold Medalí. The character on the bottle: íshengí means ídraughtí, obviously a misnomer. Drinkable on a hot day

They market this as a super fresh beer but the green bottle means itís already a little skunky, which is too bad because itís a pretty good beer otherwise. It is a light and fairly dry pale lager w/ a nice hop bitterness to the finish. If you are one of those who likes the skunky taste of some green bottle beers, I think this will be heaven on earth to you. Even if youíre not, itís still a pretty decent pale lager. Give it a try. Itís good to drink.

Green bottle, therefore aroma is skunked grass. Taste is skunked grass, and the overall feel is "fresher" or more watery than the normal taiwan brand beer. Overcarbed. Dont use a green bottle, all your other beer is in browns. Stupid.

Very light lager, dry finish. Clean. Some malt, toast and bread and very little hops. 5% so a decent palate cleanser.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2015 Fresher than the standard and Gold affair. Slightly more carbonated also. The result of an effort at a summery , cleaner lager. The draft version which lasts just 18 days is very refreshing lager. Taiwan beer is traditionally meant as a compliment to spicy and salty food. This beer is a better stand alone beer than the standard Taiwan beers.
Those above who continue to bang on about green skunky beers. YES I GET IT. GREEN BOTTLES MAKE IT SKUNKY. But as this is a very fresh beer and is meant to be sold in less than three weeks invariably it tastes maybe only 5% of skunk compared to say a Heineken. Essentially it hasnít had time to develop the skunky features in which you guys assume it has because the bottle is green.
