Bottle from chinese supermarket. Aroma has cardboard an ink, pale lager malts and a small acidic hint. Taste is up front a sweetish biscuit malt with some hints of tea, however the cardboard/ink combo taks over again and get in the way. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2007
Bottle. Clear, golden colour, fast disappearing head. Artificially sweet aroma. Quite sweet flavour, bitterness is absent. Drinkable as an alternative to water. larsga (7508) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2007
Medium very coarse white head quickly disappears entirely. Copper body with carbonation. Watery caramel, burnt rubber and sugary caramel aroma. Bitter watery sugary artificial chemical taste. Empty papery aftertaste. Not good. (0.66l bottle.) KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2007
Bottled with a label with an Italian slogan, bought in an oriental food shop in Italy. The label says just Yanjing Beer.
A little carbonation. fine golden color. A little malt, and something which resembles artificial sweetener, but is probaly rice malt. Sweetish aftertaste. Awful beer.
Interesting that they bother to ship this type of crap around the world. mnurda (1283) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 9, 2007
Not even drinkable in a pinch. Corn tasting. Would never try this again. Can’t believe Piscator rated it a 2.

330ml green bottle, labeled as Yangjing Beer. Straw coloured beer, white head flares up impressively upon pouring, but totally vanishes in about 5 seconds, not even one damn bubble left on the surface (and yes, my glass is clean). Aroma is grassy, yet not overly skunky with some grainy malt. Flavour is slightly metallic with some sweet cut grass and some grain and a suggestion of lemon. Light body, light carboantion. It did not impress me deeply. rauchbier (3880) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2006
Bottle, from Chopstix Asian food store in Grimsby. Pale gold, shortlived white head and gentle condition. Gentle grassy/skunky herbal hoppiness and trace fruitiness in the nose, quite foul in the mouth with some initial soft graininess turning quite soapy and chemicaly phenolic. Short dry finish with a worrying touch of chlorine. Boutip (6321) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2006
Bottle: Poured a golden yellow color lager with a small white bubbly head with minimal retention. Aroma of skunk is pretty intense and frankly a bit expected when green bottle are used to transport beer 3000 miles from the brewery. Taste is a mix of boring weak malt. Lubiere (13780) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2006
A golden lager with a thick dissipating white head. Light sulfide aroma and corney adjunct. In mouth, a decent malt with some light german hops, rather short in mouth, yet, overall, honest little beer. scotty (1199) - SCOTLAND - SEP 24, 2006
A fine looking lager, good mid gold colour, firm white head with a good bead. Nose is quite grassy with a slight maltiness, reminds me of Steinlager a bit. Palate is thin and pretty tasteless, I notice it has rice in its make up, so no surprise there then! 7/20 is higher than I’d normally give this style of beer, but its good looks increased its score!
I’m assuming that this is the correct beer. My example was from a bottle, and was the only 4.5% I could find on the list of the brewers beers.
