The bottle says "Relax and enjoy this fine tasting beer." I'm doing so in my Shanghai apartment on an overcast day.

Poured from the 620mL bottle into a standard glass.

A: The beer is very light straw color with a fizzy head that doesn't stick around very long.

S: Slightly vegetal with some crackery malt. I can already tell the Euro pale influence here. ive the people what they want.

T: Yep there it is. Nothing special. Light fizzy lemony character with a bit of background malt. Some veggie notes in there. An overall watery character.

There are some beers you buy because they taste great and others you buy because they are cheap. Snow fills the latter category quite nicely in China. For 3.80 RMB, roughly 50 cents, you can have a regular old Euro pale. It is what it is, and really for what it is, not terrible. Like the bottle says: Relax, it's fine.

Poured into a tiny beer glass here in Changchun, China.

A-Bright yellow straw. A bubbly and white soda water head that sticks around for a mere 8 seconds. No lace left on glass. Every once in a while a thin, white ring looped around the glass. A lot of carbonation present in the glass.

S- Full of adjuncts: rice, grain, and cheap malt; however,there was a bit of a citrusy aftertaste.

T-As I mentioned above, there was a citrus quality in the smell and the aftertaste. There was also a grainy, light, and rice taste throughout.

M-Very light and watery. Quite a light bodied brew.

Overall, not a very good beer as Tsingtao is better. Actually, Snow beer is quite awful.

Brought back from China by my girlfriens parents. Snow Beer pours a crystal clear, faintly yellow, the color of a light cider. There is a vaguely grainy, slightly corny aroma, but that is about it. Not much going on in the flavor, a hint of grain, maybe the tiniest bit of cooked corn. No bitterness or hops to speak of. The beer is clean with no lingering flavor. The best thing that can be said is there are no off flavors, this could be an extremely refreshing beer in the right circumstance.
