A deadly boring beer. Clear school bus yellow with a moderate white head that settles to a film and surrenders minor lace.

After that, its' utterly non-descript. The merest suggestion of hops and malt just barely distinguish this from a glass of fizzy water. Nothing off or offensive, just dull, dull, dull. That and its' wet.

Yanjing Beer has a thick, white head and a clear, bubbly, golden appearance, with some thin lacing left behind. The aroma is sugary sweet and grainy. Tastse is of the same, with a bit of paper and some light bittering thrown in. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Yanjing Beer finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and easy going. Overall, this is a very good beer, and I am so glad I was able to try it.

Picked this up at a local thai place with some spicy pad thai.

A: poured from the 330 ml green bottle into a pint glass. the beer is light orange with a one finger head that doesn't last very long. Lots of carbonation.

S: somewhat malty but also an off cooked smell underneath. Other than that pretty faint.

T: malt and some thin hop flavor that is more vegetal. Somewhat watery. Not great. Adjuncty and really obvious.

Overall: typical asian pale lager. Nothing out of the ordinary or unexpected here.

A - very pretty beer. crystal clear with excited carbon dioxide. 1 finger of white pillowy foam that almost completely disappears after a minute.

S - exactly what I expect from Chinese beer. Skunky hops all the way.

T- not as hoppy as it smells. light and lackluster, but a thirst quencher for sure.

M- sharp. the high level of carbonation almost stings your tongue. swishing it around gives a creamy effect, but very bubbly. any more CO2 and it'd be champagne.

O- Not bad. It's what I expect in a green Chinese bottle of beer. I'd drink it if someone else bought it. Wouldn't be bad while mowing the lawn in the summer. I'd rather have a Schell's Pils for this style.
