colui72 (901) - HONG KONG - JUN 6, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2016 Apparently a not-too-bad one in the Tsing Tao macro universe. Pale golden with soapy head and the typical foul macro aroma. However taste hasnt got that owful corn syrup sweetness of most macro lagers, with a strong malty character. Good for sessions... but... its all chemicals and fake crap. Watch the bowels the next day!

Pours gold with a bright yellow tint. White head almost disappears completely after a few minutes. Weak malt smell and a little corn. Forward bite. A little barley a little corn and a little sweet. Good on the Mai Fan in Xinfeng with friends.

330ml can purchased in Myanmar. Manufactured Jan 2011 so probably past its best. Pours a very hazy yellow. Aroma is of cardboard, soap and grain. Taste is sharp corn and tart fruit.

Can: Grain and cardboard aroma. Pale yellow with no head. Flavor is mainly rice and grain but in a cheap way. Also notes of cardboard and wet paper.

330 ml can bought at Wellcome Superstore in Sheung Shui.

Piss pale golden yellow colour; Razor-thin head and residual white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Near zero lacing and notable carbonation; Sweet pungent smell of malt, rice, grains, traces of lemon and grass; Very light sweet taste of weak malt, with strong rice, hint of wet cardboard, and notes of citrus & grass; Light body, thin but slightly slick palate; Taste profile is very low rice and grains, with malt taste being not as low as I expected. Sweetness is low and harmless, almost Pils-like. No foul taste as wet cardboard hint becomes less and less evident with further sips. Not bad! Hoppiness is very low citrusy grass nose / taste, and detectable bitterness for a semi-finish; Pretty dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: Amazingly, this is one of the better offerings by oft-disappointing Tsingtao. In fact, its much better than many of the Tsingtaos propers: its a macro alright, but how often when you come across a macro with near zero sweetness, very low adjunct taste, decent lean body, no foul taste, and finish the whole thing with good degree of satisfaction? Heres one of them and its inexpensive. Like the Yanjing Draft 4.5% 11P, this one gets the most bang out of my bucks. A macro gem!

larsga (7473) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 23, 2012
Small offwhite coarseish head doesnt last. Clear yellow body with light carbonation. Light perfumy jasmine aroma with floral notes. Dry-sweet mealy jasmine taste with floral notes. Mid-to-light body. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish floral perfumy jasmine aftertaste. OK, so this beer is the same all the way through. Fairly nice, certainly drinkable, and perhaps even slightly subtle. (0.64l bottle, Wellcome, Lohas Park, Hong Kong.)

DeanF (2418) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2011
Aside from the boring appearance, this has a really strong smell of alcohol and rice, and not in a good way. Flavour is bread mixed with rice adjuncts. What else is there to say? Another pale lager by a different name.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 15, 2010
Ultra pale with no head at all. Smells like arse. Major chemo swill with band aid phenols. Tastes ok in comparison and has a mineral water finish.
