2.9/5 rDev +5.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75
Can version which was pretty similar to the on-tap I had in the past.
Yellow golden color with a one finger fluffy head with short retention.
Sweet aroma of jasmine, a hint of lemon and sugar. Not the usual adjunct lager scent.
Slightly sour flavor of lemons and green grapes with notes of rice, floral hops, lemongrass and a distant hint of spices. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Light to watery body and medium carbonation.
Refreshing and crisp Adjunct Lager that doesn’t carry the usual load of off-flavors for the style and with its own character. I prefer much more rice Adjunct Lagers as this one rather than corn ones.
This should match perfectly to spicy Asian food.
Serving type: can

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...
