look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
On tap at a Chinese chain. Served in a iced pilsner glass. Even came with a small piece of icing floating. I let it warm up some to see if it any smell would come out. Appearance was pale yellow, but not as pale as some. Small bubbles, no head. Tiny bit of lacing.
Smell was almost all alcoholy when it was ice cold, as it warmed it expressed a very slight malt/grain smell. No real hop smell noticed.
It tasted... ok. Nothing of note. Maybe very slightly alcohol. Some malt with a hint of hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel was fine. It was thin, but not over carbonated.
I was able to drink it with no problems as I had my somewhat spicy Chinese food. Went fairly well with it. By no means a good beer, but it was, over all, ok. Probably won't have again.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
A - Clear filtered yellow with no head.
S - Grassy malt
T - Relatively clean but nothing special at all
M - Crisp and refreshing
O - Nothing special in this "100% malt" beer. Would like to see something special for the exotic beer price.
