Camons (13496) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle @ Hotelroom, Kunshan. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malt, grain, corn. Taste is weak malt, grain, corn, notes of straw. Medium body, lively carbonation. 060112

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2015 Tasted from green bottle into standard pint glass. Part of a Beers of the World mix-pack. Poured a straw color, with a fluffy white head, somewhat lasting with a tiny bit of lace. Aromas of grain, grass, extremely faint (noble?) hops. Flavor was almost entirely neutral, just clean, mellow, cereal grain water. Dry finish, no aftertaste at all. Not bad, not very good either.

Interesting beer to look on, the green bottle filled with chinese characters on the label. However it is somewhat unlikely that a mass produced Chinese ricebeer would be a taste revelation. The beer smells quite well - fresh and lightly hoppy as other Asian lagers. taste is soft and light and fresh. a nice little beer you could easily drink many of without getting tired of them.

330ml bottle -

Suprised to find this on the menu at a local Chinese restaurant. The only thing they’d ever served was Tsingtao, and I do think that this one was just a step up from Tsingtao. Standard piss yellow body with a foamy 2" airy cap, with really quick soda-pop like dissipation. Aroma is a "blink and you’ll miss it" kinda of aroma. Really light hay, touch skunky and bready. Flavor is light, quick, with just a hint of sweetness, clean finish. It went well with the food I had ordered, and didn’t detract from the flavors of the food. Not sure I’d plunk down $8-10 for a sixer, but you could do worse.

300ml bottle. Slightly metallic hop aroma with biting carbonation and light toasted malt with sweet finish. Certainly not horrible but pretty bland.

northropfrye (3731) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 8, 2011
Bottle. Kind of offensive. Skunky and watery. Really not a good beer at all.

Koelschtrinker (22068) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Ich habe das Bier schon in China getrunken, zwischen den wässrigen Bieren dort war das hier noch herausragend, das kann ich jetzt nicht gerade behaupten. Es präsentiert sich typisch wässrig, einzig der herbe Ton im Mittelteil, der anschließend langsam mit süßem Touch weicht ist erwähnenswert. Wenn ihr in China seit, das ist eins der besten Bier, wirklich.... Test vom 15.11.2006, Gebinde: Dose Noten: 3,3,4,2,9,3

rosenbergh (11931) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2011
330 ml bottle. As Yanjing Beer (4.5%). Finland.
Clear golden colour with small white head. Skunky aroma of mild hops, cereal, rice and some sweetness. Flavour is sweet malty with some cereal and mild bitterness. Low carbonation.

crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
supposedly the most popular beer in china, it was skunky at first, but surprisingly unoffensive.

Hermod (8509) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2011
33cl bottle. Poured very pale golden with a soapy white head. Aroma is citrus and rice. Watery, very thin. Flavor is malt and rice. No bitterness.
