Purchased in Taipei, this beer comes in a 500ml green PET bottle and is brewed in China apparently, according to the label; produced on 15/09/2011, BB 15/06/2012, served chilled in a slim pilsner glass.
A: pours a light and clear straw colour, coming with a thin white foamy head and abundant fizziness. It seems the PET bottle has kept the carbonation intact here.
S: lightly dusty upfront as it’s poured, then adjunct-lager’s smell catches up, highlighting the rice elements above anything else, but not to the extent of the like of Bud or Coors. Malts are kept at a low level as the sweet grainy smell is rather subdued. Fruity notes accompany the grainy-maltiness and sugary sweetness. All in all not unpleasant and quite standard for a mass-produced lager beer.
T: apart from being fizzy, it’s rather dry from the start, coupled with a slightly “unnatural” edge of sourness like neither fruits nor doughy bread, but more along the line of cheap grain-adjuncts… The aftertaste is conspicuous by its absence, really, delivering a slightly watery or definitely thin palate in the end with a lightly rough texture, while there’re no traces of hop aroma, hop bitterness, malt sweetness, doughy sourness, etc. I dare say there’s very little to be spotted, as far as my experience and palates are concerned.
M&D: quite fizzy (with tiny bubbles) but not terribly “gassy” (with huge bubbles), the body is thin but not negligent. All in all this is a bad beer, with its palate even less noticeable than its timid aroma. Not recommended at all.
