DocJitsu (1891) - 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.

Clear yellow with small white head. Strange aroma which is common in pale lagers. Taste is very pale and light.

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

BreWedge (518) - 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

JStax (5906) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2015
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a clear gold color with a white head of foam. Aroma is corny and grainy with a bright sweetness to it. Reminds me of rhe beer I drank in the carribbean. Subtle grass and skunk character to it. Light in body and easy drinking.
