Yeah bar beer mmm, I have consumed waaay to much of this during the current "work trip" in Taipei. So the can says:
Work for fun, study for fun, live for fun, think for fun, some other crap, and then the bottem of the paragraph states that everytime you have a Bar your life will be full of fun.

Well maybe if your idea of fun is going to the bathroom to piss this stuff out every couple of minutes. Other than that this is your average Asian macro, but maybe the closest to a Bud of anything sold in Taiwan.

Comes in 12 an 20 oz cans

The aperance was its strongpoint. Had a very clear golden piss color. Nice frothy head and various size bubbles rising to the top of the glass. Abundant frothy lace. The smell was metalic and sour. There was almost no taste at all, very watered down. I couldnt even detect any flavors at all. The mouthfeel is somewhat crisp in a watery way. Made me burp a lot. I like kirin ichiban but not this "bar" beer. May be a good beer for drinking games. This beer was definetly below the bar. pun intended.

Label says this was made in China
Purchased in Taipei, Taiwain

Malt, grain, hops

Florescent yellow, no head.
Sweet corn aroma
Slightly sweet, very watery, yet refreshing.
Light, no substance
This is a good beer for what it is aiming for. Refreshing, goes well with spicy food.
