Had at 竹缘林海 (Zhu Yuan Lin Hai) restaurant in Beijing, China.

A: Very pale clear yellow, large amount of visible carbonation.

S: Very faint, generically clean with a bit of yeast.

T/M: Light lager taste, a faint bit of sweetness, some rice and adjunct malts. Slight bit of yeast, but plenty of carbonation.

D: Like most Chinese beers, this one is light in flavor, but complements the heavier, spicier stews that this restaurant offers (i.e. like Turtle Stew, or this beer serves to wash down the servings of Chinese rice liquor (65% alc. by vol.) mixed with either turtle blood or turtle bile).

Serving type: bottle

Beers in China seems to be marketed for quick drinks, and highly drinkable, able to drink a lot type of beers. This one came in a 590 ml bottle at a restaurant in Beijing. It is a yellow beer that is quite fizzy. It is smooth, crisp and rather refreshing since it was like 200 degrees outside. Wasn't ice cold when I drank it which is common in China. Not overwhelming, not too complex. Little bit of malt flavor with a little sweetness. All in all a decent beer to have with dinner. Pairs well with Sichuan (Szechuan) style eggplant.

After a 14-hour flight and landing at Beijing airport, any beer was welcome. This one said "Draft" so I thought (foolish me) that they actually had it on-tap at the airport. Nope-- it's still in a bottle. The beer-ignorant waitress of course had to pour it for me, which is done by dumping the bottle totally upside down. Then she got embarassed when it foamd all over the place.

A= basic pale yellow, huge (no wonder!) foamy sudsy white head.

S= light malt and hops, not much to excite.

T= a bit of a metallic taste compared to something like a Tsingtao, but fairly on-par with many American MacroBrew's otherwise. Light sweet malt, light hops, not much in the bitters category at all.

M= clean on the palate and tongue aside from the light metallic hint.

D= plenty drinkable if you don't mind a typical American Adjunct style beer.
