(Bottled) Paleish golden with a small head. Very grassy aroma with rice-lemony maltiness and surprisingly also some alcohol. Quite malty, rice-corny, sweetish and fruity-lemony flavor with mild acidity and low bitterness. Not that light-bodied, smooth, but quite carbonated palate. Not that bad for a Chinese pale lager - it even has some flavor and body. Cavie (4654) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle courtesy of ericandersnavy. Bottle marked Yanjing Beer. Clear light yellow. Small white head. Smell is there. Stale grain and soured notes. Taste is slightly sweet. Kind of a malt liquor flavor. Old pumpkin scents turn up as it warms.

aroma of stewed corn, and cooked vegeables. Flavor is quite sub par, not much here, some slight corny flavor, mixed with some sweet corn syrup. Holy hell this is awful. tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2006
The Official Beer of Grand High Manifestations. Mildly sweet rice and herbal hops in the aroma. Clear golden body is topped by a low but lasting white head that leaves some very nice lacing. Mild grain flavour with light herbal hops, sweet rice and a very light bitterness. Aftertaste is long and sweet. Light body with fair carbonation. Bottle (BB020706) sampled with MartinT, Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere. IrishBoy (4185) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 1, 2009

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. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 13, 2005
12 oz. bottle -- Don’t bother. All I could think when I was drinking this weak, yellow, fizzy beer was that the Chinese must have as bad a taste in beer as many people here in the US. The flavor is fairly inoffensive, but has nothing to offer either. It pours with a thin, rapidly dissipating head. The commercial description claim of long-lasting foam is baffling. I guess they just made that up. And "sharp beer strength"? heh... right. Avoid it.
