Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Yellow in color with a small white head. Aroma is of corn and skunkiness. Taste is of corn and grain. Blah. Lenusik (119) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
This was the official beer of the recent Beijing Olympics. I’m pretty sure this beer was chosen because it goes down easy and would make it very easy to obtain urine for drug tests (Carl Lewis needed 5 beers in Barcelona for one test - this beer would have been perfect). It’s swill. It’s Chinese Bud Light. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 24, 2013

Gul i färgen, vitt skum. Doftar och smakar söt malt, gräs, lite unket, kolsyrat. Bättre än många andra Kinaöl. theisti (4179) - Kansas, USA - DEC 31, 2012
11.2 oz green bottle gifted to me as part of a World Market beers of the world 9 pack. The pour is a clear yellow golden with a 2 inch white head that breaks down quickly with with thick bubbles. The aroma is cereal grain, lightly sweet, faint and not much going on. The taste is a weird chemical sweetness right away, unpleasant, followed by a flat floral sweet, and then a bit of cardboard in the back. The palate is light to medium bodied, low carbonation level, and the dirty vegetal finish. Flat, watery and flabby, I could only drink a few ounces of this. Gross stuff.

Bottle at Night Markets, Hong Kong. It is another typical Asian-style macro lager with barely there aroma and taste of corn syrup, rice, cardboard and a very light hop presence. Light-medium body with a watery texture. Clear straw yellow appearance with transient small white head. laiti (8508) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2012

33 cl bottle as ”Yanjing Beer”, 11°, 4,5%. Rated on 02.02.2010
Bright yellow-orange colour. Disappearing head with small bubbles. Aroma has metal and malt. Flavour is really light with some butter and malt. Typical Asian bulk lager.
Straight away the smell of this beer reminded me of Becks but a little sweeter towards the end, there is a clean and crisp aroma with a tinny bit of skunk in there and some grain too. Very much a pale lager with a touch of lager hops and corn with some rice as well.
Quite a pale straw looking beer with a thin, bubbly looking white head that fades to a tiny lacing around the glass after about twenty seconds.
Quite a crisp and very sweet tasting pale lager with a lot of corn and more grain than I would have liked from it. It is light tasting and full of various adjuncts. It is perhaps a little watery right at the end too.
A thin and light bodied lager with not much in the way of substance and slightly too watery for my liking. It does get it right with regards to carbonation though and is easy enough to drink as opposed to being overly gassy as I was fearing.
This wasn’t nearly as bad as I had feared. It is drinkable and has a nice crisp sweetness about it and would be an excellent thirst quencher in a warmer climate.
