O boy I got this because I think it's the beer clint eastwood was drinking in gran torino at the asian peoples house.
App.- Very golden semi light gold I like all the carbonation bubbles building up on the glass, thats why I gave it a good lookin app.
Smell-Rice, Malt, a little bit of alc , a slight skunky smell.
Taste-exactly the same as the smell except , the aftertaste reminds me very much of a euro style lager with it's own twist , not bad , not at all.
MF- extemely light mouthfeel , it seems lighter than light lagers, but then again its ice cold , wow refreshing!
Drink- God damn drinkable , wow , I could drink this soo easily , is this what they call beer in China, it's not bad , better than the american adjunct.

Poured from the green bottle into a pint glass. A super pale straw yellow brew, maybe just a hair darker than some American examples of the adjunct lager, with the expected foaming white bubbles filling the glass. Beer remains fizzy and effervescent throughout. Smells grainy and slightly tangy, rank waterlogged barley and no trace of corn sweetness ... Rice is king here, astringent, crisp, and clean other than the aforementioned wet grain notes. Palate benefits from a cold temperature, drink up quick. Some tangy lemon rind and grape flavors, vaporous and fleeting, followed by old grain mill or malt liquor, a little like Singha but no where near as flavorful. Some medicinal aspirin and a sour metallic tang throughout. Plastic flavors emerge as the beer warms. Somewhat skunky, another feature that unfortunately gains salience over time. Stripped down. Far less sweet than most American adjunct beers. Finishes dry and with an unexpected American hop currant twang (but this feature is decidedly subtle). Meets expectations. This beer may very well complement Chinese food but that ain't going to bump up my ratings.
