HopsIPAndDrunk (43) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Skunky aroma accompanied by notes of hay. Appearance is impressive...... a crystal golden color with a white frothy head that disappates quickly. Tastes surprised me.... Light sweetness with an impressively fresh aftertaste. Usually beers this skunky are biting in the end, but this one is very smooth! Light body, with a thin texture. Carbonation is lively. Finishes long and amazingly smooth. Decent beer.

Poured into dof tumbler from green bottle. Colour is something like a pale amber with a orange-ish hue. Medium carbonation, minimal dissipating head. Woody with notes of vanilla and a milder note of lemon peel. Pleasant bitterness, medium-light body (overall on the lighter side.).

Bottle from Liquor Barn into a pint glass. Not a lot going on with this beer.

DocJitsu (1979) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Pours a clear, classic golden with a quickly fading white head. Very slinky nose. Heavy mouthfeel, particularly for the style. Skunky, corny flavor. First Chinese beer for me.

juvedp (75) - CHINA - DEC 10, 2016
Clear yellow with small white head. Strange aroma which is common in pale lagers. Taste is very pale and light.

ronaldtheriot (1936) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - DEC 10, 2016
Yanjing has a thick, white, creamy head of foam, a clear golden appearance, and lots of lacing left behind, on the glass. Aroma is of sweet cracker grain, and the flavor is of cracker, clean water, and grassy hop notes. Mouthfeel is medium, and Yanjing finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

Backlog. 600 ml bottle drunk with food in Chinese restaurant, Singapore. Light yellow in colour, fizzy white foam. Smells industrial corn and malt. Taste is neglible.

Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Slightly skunked Eurolager aroma. Green bottle, plasticky label. Very pale, very clear. Lightly sweet, low bittering. Serve ice cold. Medium body, fairly crisp. Inoffensive. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

Bottle. Clean straw color, white foam. Aroma: crisp dimethyl sulfide, rice field, malt. Taste: watery, malt, hay and sadness.

Location:Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA
Aroma: Mild corn muskiness, cereal
Taste: Very light but clean.
Palate: Light and crisp
Overall: Barely a beer but very clean and easy drinking. Mild corn musk / cardboard notes are minimal.

BreWedge (534) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
330 ml bottle @ North China Buffet. The fact that I ordered this at a Chinese buffet was definitely an indicator of what I was about to experience. Pours a clear pale yellow with lively carbonation and a big but short-lived white head. Aromas are sweet grainy malts and grain. Tastes are light malts, adjunct (corn? rice? Don't know) and light grain. Thin, lively carbonation, virtually nil finish. Inoffensive offering but very sessionable, I could drink eleven teen of these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
