look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Purchased by GF in Okinawa.

A - Pale golden in color with 1 finger of head that sticks around. High carbontion is apparent too.

S/T - Wafts of DMS and rice, little hoppiness, and some breadiness. Very creamy and somewhat resembles an American cream ale.

M - Malt dominated and light-medium in body. Very creamy with little heat from the alcohol.

D - A very good take on malt liquor, Rather surprised since I was intimidated to try this beer. Good for a lawnmower beer.

Serving type: can

Purchased from a 7-11 during my six-month tenure in Taiwan, the land of gorgeous girls and bad beers. Anyhow, I believe this is the strongest beer that you can find in any Taiwan's convenience store.

Yellowish color in nature, smells just like any ordinary lager that you could have imagined. Tastes has a strong malt flavor with a hint of rice. Very easy to drink as you can chug six cans of this for some buzzy effect. With plenty of bad beers, this one stands out from the masses.

This beer had a clear crisp golden color. There was minimal head but a lot of lace left behind on the glass. It had perfect lines of tiny bubbles rising to the top of the glass. The smell was bready and ricey and tingled the nostrils. The taste had quite a bite to it. I dected tones of rice, corn, and yeast. The taste lingered around in your mouth. As the beer got warmer it got more bitter, must be very cold to enjoy. The mouthfeel was crips and tingly. I burped a lot due to those tiny bubbles. Overall this is not a favorite of mine but i would consume this beer again.

3.45/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Clear golden brew with a decent, white head.

Smell: Light malt aroma with a good wallop of alcohol.

Taste: Solid malt flavor with a touch of citrus. Hints of melon. Alcohol is evident in the finish. As it warms, it begins to have a real chemical taste to it.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied brew with a slight, waxy quality.

Drinkablity: Cheap and powerful. Comes across as any malt liquor does with a little less funk. Designed for fast consumption. Pretty solid brew.

Serving type: can
