Definitely an adjunct, but, being a sake lover, the rice notes in this are so rewarding. It was over 90 degrees F here today and I had one that was ice cold, was so refereshing, like a lightly carbonated sake mix, "shandy" almost lol. Not a staple but would definitely give another go under the same circumstances

This was on the bargain clearance shelf so I decided to give it a try.
Pours a clear golden color with a white head.
Very good aroma. Lots of grain with a little bit of hops.
Flavor starts fairly sweet but a slight hoppy note is hiding out there. Fairly clean tasting. No off flavors like I expect from a macro-style lager.
Overall, a better than average beer of the style. Not bad as a summer quencher. Probably not worth seeking out either but it exceeds most others of this style by managing to be inoffensive.

Appearance - Pours a golden straw with a finger of white head that recedes quickly.
Smell - rice, grains, light musty hops, sweet bready malts.
Taste - Starts off with sweet bready malts then the rice, grains, and light hops. Finishes crisp and dry.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with light to moderate carbonation.
Overall - A simple American adjunct that is easy to drink and has a crisp finish. Nothing out of the ordinary here but a simple and easy drinker.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Faint aromas of adjunct malts are present in the nose—corn seems to stand out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of corn adjuncts along with notes of rice and slight hints of sweetness, bitterness, and skunk, the latter of which might be a result of the green bottle.
M: It feels light-bodied, clean and a little watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This could be considered a lawnmower beer as it goes down easily and there's nothing really offensive about the taste, except that there aren't any interesting flavors.

It's a fizzy pale yellow beer, the Chinese version of any lame macro we have here in the U.S. or anywhere else. Barely any head forms, a sparse foam, with very little but at least noticeable spotting deposited in like manner.
It doesn't smell as bad as one might expect. There are actual detectable hops, maybe grass but essentially floral, with a certain tartness common, a lemony twang, and a bit of malts in a somewhat dry form.
The taste comes off a bit cloying, though, and very grainy. Fortunately, the tartness and crackery dry malts serve to ease that a little. It's a bit vegetal. Floral hops still come through, just barely, though an almost skunky sulfuric note adds its own little assault.
The feel is a little grainy and not particularly clean, though it does have a certain smoothness to it and is refreshingly crisp.
