I dunno - are we drinking the same beer? I thought this might pass for lightly beer-flavored soda water.

First had: bottle in a gift set

Yeah, it's from China. But it's not much different from any other adjunct lager. Pours a pale, watery, golden-straw color with a puff of white head that fizzles down to nearly nothing. Aroma of weak grains and a passing touch of hops, with the classic green bottle skunk. Taste of watered-down grains and corn, funk and skunk, harsh and metallic. Light and watery mouthfeel, and definitely to be avoided at all costs.

Tsingtao

Had this while in China at a restaurant.

A = Poured a pale straw colour. Really pale. Almost looks like tainted water.

S = Faint smell of light grains. Pretty much non existant.

T = Tasted like it looked. Sweetly tainted water with a hint of bitterness. Terrible.

M = Very low carbonation to add to its tainted water look. Bleh.

D = If you can't tell by now, I hated this beer big time. Only thing it has going for it in China is the fact that it is always availiable and damn damn cheap. Avoid it folks.

1.05/5  rDev -62%

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a very pale yellow color with a very thin white head that fades quickly and leaves almost no lace on the glass.

S: The smell is that typical pungent macro adjunct odor, only to a higher degree. There's very little aroma of malt or hops present that I could detect.

T: The taste is sweet with flavors of corn, rice, a little malt and a faint touch of hops. The after-taste is a combination of sweetness, breadiness and a weird, non-hops bitterness.

M: Not very smooth with just a little crispness, light-to-medium body, high carbonation, dry finish.

D: I didn't find it tasty at all and had a hard time finishing it. It's slightly filling for the style. My father-in-law loves this stuff, but I can't understand why.

Kansas

1.05/5  rDev -62%

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Clear light golden body, rising bubbles. A white head does a magic trick and disappears. No lacing.

Aroma: Cabbage, skunk, faint grains.

Taste: Even worse than the aroma, cooked veggies and sour apples come out.

Mouthfeel: Unpleasantly sticky.

Overall: Sour and skunky. Nothing resembling beer.

1.1/5  rDev -60.1%

i agree with michael kennedy, extremely dirty unclean flavour and a dirty sock sweetness, quite horrible, i wouldn't even drink it when eating Chinese food, repulsive.

1.18/5  rDev -57.2%

Bottle: Poured a golden color lager with a small bubbly white head with minimal retention. Aroma of weak malt and hops with bad case of skunk in the back. Taste is pretty inoffensive apart from the bad case of skunkyness. You have to wondered why they import all those crappy lager into North Amercia…

Alaska

1.18/5  rDev -57.2%

Pours a clear pale yellow with a very small white head. Aroma is very grainy with a very faint hoppy character. The body is extremely light and hardly any hops or malts are noticeable. Very skunky and watery. To be quite honest, one of the worst beers I’ve ever tried. This was a drain pour after the first couple of sips, I just could not bring myself to suffer any longer.

1.2/5  rDev -56.5%

of all the places to find Chinese beer, i didnt think Bavaria would be on the list. picked it up cuz i wanted to try something different. good thing it was cheap. the Chinese do a lot of things very well, beer isnt one of those things. id rate this beer marginally higher than bud light, only for the higher alcohol content.
