Green bottle. Light gold in colour with high carbonation. Dull light pale malt aroma with a faint suggestion of German noble hops. Somewhat bland rice flavor, not much of a hop contribution in the mouth. Low bitterness, and a bit of a surprising full mouthfeel, inspite of all of the carbonation. Clean finishing. Dull, but drinkable in a pinch. gregwilsonstl (2612) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 18, 2013
This is terrible....if this is premium, I don’t want their lower one. It’s like a bitter and bad Nat lite. Thanks Carter. DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 24, 2009
I have no idea if this is the right beer, all my bottle says is "yanjing beer" and ratebeer does a piss poor job of giving us information to differentiate the different listings. This poured yellow and had a white head at one point but settles completely 100% headless. Nose is crisp with notes of old lime, wheat and mellow lager yeast. Soft grains and wheat dominate the clean, mellow flavors with hints of citrus splash in the finish. Actually, its fairly clean for the style and I like the distinctive lemony/lime notes in the finish. Not much else to say. NosirIwont (2574) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2009
Bottle. As ‘Yanjing Beer’. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a small white head. Sweetish hop aroma with remote notes of plastic in the background. Cereals. Remote tart/vinegar notes as it warms. Sweet flavour. Citrus hops, cereals and remote plastic notes. Cardboard as it warms. Finish is mildly hoppy. Grainy notes as it warms. Move along people, nothing to see here… 15-05-09.

330 mL green bottle. Crystal clear yellow-gold with no head. Mild aroma has a hint of European hops, but it’s mostly rice (corn?). The initial flavour is bubbles, and that is followed up by what I guess must be rice sugar, and rounded out with cardboard. Highly carbonated. Not good.

Pale, pale yellow; quickly fading head that was thick for about 30 seconds; nil on the nose. The first thing I tasted was corndogs. After that, corndogs is all I could think of. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - DEC 17, 2011

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.
Golden color, cristal clear. Nice, but small frothy head. Super malty, esters, fruity in aroma. Has also a note of rice in it. For a mass produced beer quite pleasant. Almost completely tasteless, but at least it’s not very bad. Definitely to sweet, no bitterness. Light in the mouthfeel, not carbonated to heavily. POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2011
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.

Bottled, 0.64l. Clear brownish golden color with large frothy, but quickly diminishing white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of grainy malt, cardboard and grassy hops. Taste is sour grainy and of adjuncts, mouthfeel is crisp and dry, while finish is light bitter. Light body, watery texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. Commercial description looks great, the rest is total disappointment...
