I dont know why im rating this. I guess its beer? i dont know... It pours a light golden colour, not too bad to look at from pilsner or lager standards. Then you taste it, its sickly sweet, must have added sugar, some strange sour tang to it i cant 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! dont 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. Its cheep for a reason.

Bottle. Pale yellow pour, with a small, bubbly, white head. The aroma is rice, pine, tangerines, and apples. Very sweet, with some fruity esters. Light body, a little effervescent, and silky. Overall, this is a surprisingly flavorful, light, and fruity lager.

Liquid bread for the masses. About as plebian and pedestrian as beer gets. Lifeless. Best served headache cold. An alcohol level of about.05 or less, as near to near beer as beer gets in China.

Clear yellowish. Pretty crummy. A typical example of cheap mass-market pale lager, though its definitely not the worst. I hope theres no lead in it.

maxwelldeux (4358) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear light golden color with a moderate white head. Nose is a little sweet and skunky like so many export lagers are. Taste is much the same, and unappealing. Meh.

SDalkoholic (2365) - Linda Vista, California, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle from Sprouts: Poured with a thick white foam head while a light golden blonde that actually looked darker than most other Chinese pale lagers. Aroma is slightly skunky but has all the typical scents of a cheap beer brewed with adjuncts perhaps rice. The beer has minor notes of malt and skunk but nothing near European green bottle pale lagers and has a sweet finish. Really boring but good price for a bomber.

11.2oz bottle. Pours really light. Aroma of white bread and hints of the lightest hops. Flavor the same. Light. Not good.
