I don’t know if this is the right one, but anyway it looks like this: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_1JmMJ_qDjRs/S06TATI7TkI/ and there’s 4.5 % alcohol. It tastes smooth, and there’s funny kind of roastiness, cereal-chocolate. A bit bitter and, but very little. This is very great beer for those who like creamy, mild, yet good tasting beers. No any yeast/bacteria or other stupid aromas. The beer somehow "takes" the mouth, fills it with a weird little little bubble taste. [330 ml bottle, Citymarket, Lahti, Finland]

Pours a pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma is honey, floral, rice, and a hint of some peppery hops. Flavor is honey, nice floral notes, and some spicy hops.

Very dry, no aftertaste at all, an interesting experience.

(03.30.06) 630 ml green bottle purchased at Mei Fu Tian Restaurant, Beijing, China. Poured clear yellow with small white head. Average carbonation. Faint skunk and grass in the nose. Light bodied Chinese pale lager that starts with light malt sweetness with malt/corn flavor. Finishes dry with light malt fade. Compared to Yanjing 10oP and Yanjing 12oP Extra, all three tasted pretty much the same but the Yanjing 11 oP was relatively drier and crisp tasting and it went very well with Chinese food. This beer was the best of all three Yanjing beers.

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.

Bottle at Plan B. Clear yellow - white head. Citrus, light hoppy, corn, light malty, freshness, clean, light crispy. OK.

12 oz can-pours a foamy white head, quickly dissipates. Color is clear yellow with plenty of effervescence. Aroma is grain. Taste is grain and a champagne taste and feel (of the inexpensive type).

At least the bottle was nice, with four embossed Chinese characters at the front and "Yanjing Beer" across the back. It poured a large foamy white head that dropped off to nothing with eleven seconds. Colour was a medium gold, sadly reminiscent of urine. Aroma was a little bitter, but mostly a grassy/perfume - Hite revisited. Taste, mouthfeel and aftertaste were all better than expected, with perhaps a hint of seetness in the aftertaste. Maybe the formaldehyde? Not the worst beer I’ve had. Re-reviewed: after having a fair whack o’ this stuff in China, it isn’t all that bad; certainly seems better taste-wise versus the Yanjing we get in N.A. Perhaps it doesn’t travel well?

Clear golden with a medium white short lasting head. Sweet fruity aroma with malty and caramel notes. Flavour was sweet and malty with caramel notes. The finish was slightly bitter.
