poured with a llght head and a bit o lace. Almost no aroma. some body and and bitterness to give it character which it sorely needs. not a lot there otherwise. Having this one from a can in my room at the New Asia Hotel, Shanghai ilovedarkbeer (2752) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2007
meh tastes very yeasty and has a golden color when poured. nothing exciting just a different sort of taste than regular american macros. nearbeer (5662) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 9, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2009 Bottle in frosty glass, at Chinese restaurant. Straw colored, and poured so exactingly by the waiter as to leave no head (I seem to recall medium-sized head when I poured as normal). Typical skunky lager aroma dissipates quickly into barely-there floral scent. Taste initially nuts and hop, then malt, with nuts winning out, but not much to either side. Slight sweet aftertaste. Doesn’t have the "there’s a headache coming" taste that American lagers have, but that may be due to no teenage-years overexposure to this beer. I swear I can taste rice in the bottom. OK beer; just now learning at 45 I’m not a light lager fan. Arayaga2 (2224) - portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 9, 2007
Pale yellow with an aroma of grass and tea. Taste is same but lightly sweet, and watery.

Bottle. Head was small with a white slightly frothy sparkle. Spare lacing. Clear slightly sparkling body. Color was pale yellow. Aroma was light malt, grass, rice. Light bodied with a thin texture and an average carbonation. Light sweet flavor with light notes of bitterness. Short finish. thehurt01 (262) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2007
A 12 oz bottle with no born on or freshness date, but some cool Chinese righting on it. The beer poured a golden body with a two finger white head. The smell is of rice and grain. The taste is mild and bitter. Good carbonation and clean mouth taste. tomthompson89 (1983) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2007
decnt chinese lager, not amazing but drinkable, pale straw colour, some head small small amount of hop nose, thirst quenching, and a little bitter on the finish KnutAlbert (6798) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2007
33 cl bottle from Centra. Pale beer, plenyt of CO2. Full malty taste, but there is some bitterness, too. But the bitterness is not very pleasant, it is probably for hop extracts. With some more care, this could have been a decent pilsener. kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2007
12 oz bottle via Cost Plus World Market. Pours a clear golden blodne with almost no head. Nose is typical ’green body light stuck’ but not yet skunked. Taste is typical pale lager..ie bland with some malts and hops in there somewhere, and some grassiness. High carbonation. Light body. Thin mouthfeel. Watery. I would say this is a pale lager not a Premium Lager. As a Pale lager it is not bad. As a Premium lager, it is not good.
