Green Bottle: Pours fizzy gold with a quick, foamy white head. Sweet corn aroma. Taste is corn, grain malt, water, paper. Fizzy, but flat.... About what you’d expect....except for the astonishing lack of skunk.....Don’t know how they managed that.

Bottle. Pale yellow pour with thin white head. Very little flavor of corn and grass. Not much good to say about this one, I can’t say I enjoyed it. Just not for me.

Can on Air China flight. Pale pissy gold. Insipid, corny aroma. Weak carbonation. Straw, corn and weak-ass hops. Not appetising in the slightest, but some moisture for the throat.

Bottle (330ml): Pale gold, clear pours with light head that dissipates very quickly. Lifted, malt, citrus, funky almost skunks. Dank wood profile. Sweet and no bitterness or sourness. Feels cloying. Short and little flavor. I assume the only time to drink this is in high humidity while eating hot sechuan food. Very weak. Needs more co2.

Bottle, given to me by Rockley. Very pale yellow pour, sudsy white head. Low aroma of papery grains. Grainy watery palate with a dry boxboard finish. Oxidized and weak.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma and taste is malt and grass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale beer, the medium head disappeared quite quickly. Aroma of grass and malt, not very pleasant however. Hopes are hardly distinguishable. Roses are red, their spikes are green, the taste is so bitter, the body is thin.

Skunk, grain, mild citrus and biscuit aroma. Yellow with thin white head. Medium bodied lager, grainy and mild citrus flavor. Mild bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I don’t know why i’m rating this. I guess it’s beer? i don’t know... It pours a light golden colour, not too bad to look at from pilsner or lager standards. Then you taste it, it’s sickly sweet, must have added sugar, some strange sour tang to it i can’t really place. Not something I would ever spend money on. As far as mass produced beers go this one lays on the lowest rung of the beer ladder... the bladder. yeah! something funny came out of this! don’t ever buy a six pack of this, if you want to try it for the sake of trying it get a single can and give it the old college try. You will be disappointed. If you like mass produced beer there are hundreds that are way better, and there are THOUSANDS of proper craft brewed beers that are much more worthy of your attention. Yanjing? NOjing!!!

Not much to say here. Rather bland, boring and uncharismatic beer. It’s cheep for a reason.
