Pours light yellow in color decent head. The smelll for me was nothing special for me almost grainy sour if that makes sense.
The taste no really overwhelming flavor you can taste the hoppyness a bit along with a slight grainy taste and a mild bitter finish. I was very pleased. I was expecting a cheap rice and corn beer with a nasty metallic aftertaste.

I say give it a shot at least once. You might be glad you did!

It's always tough to review an AAL, since it's a category fabricated to house certain sub-par beers. To style, this beer isn't all that bad. What kills it is the green bottle and the skunk that follows it. Not quite as bad as Moosehead, but it's up there. The head was quite nice for an AAL; downhill after that. A bit too sweet and grain-husky

I knew this was going to be a terrible ale. Come on now, its a beer from china, right? Low expectations.. Drank the beer- expectations verified.
Well, we had a beer with a pale watery yellow hue that resembles a low end american lager. It has not much of a smell and believe me the flavor is dead as well. Mouthfeel is terrible.. Feels like I'm drinking cold mineral water over here. Overall I rate it 1.5, halfway between poor and awful because thats what it is. Only ordered it because I was a chinese joint and never tried the darn thing. Adding insult to injury is the fact that I blew three fifty on twelve ounces of it...

2.69/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bottle dated 092414 at 40 degrees into snifter
Aroma of a short-chained thiol – ie skunked
Head average (3 cm), white, creamy, slowly diminishing to a broken 2 mm layer
Lacing good – white complete rings with mostly small bubbles
Body golden yellow, clear
Flavor slightly sour, quickly ending, then nothing; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate light to medium, watery, carbonation mildly lively

Very mediocre lager, watery, flavorless in seconds, typical skunk aroma. However, the appearance is OK – nice body and decent lacing.
