A - Poured out a clear yellow color with a white, one-finger head.

S - It smelled of corn and grain adjuncts.

T - It tasted of corn and was rather sweet.

M - It was a little thin and watery. A light-bodied beer.

D - At least the bottle was super-interesting!

The reason i bought this beer is probably the same as most people's...It has a cool bottle (and bottle cap). It's not a bad beer but it's very light and bland tasting with a little euro-skunk thrown in.

It was the bottle that caught my eye. Average pale lager, light malt aroma, even lighter taste. Very mild bready finish. Light, wispy head, very pale golden body. Easy to drink, easy to forget.

This beer was listed as craft beer where we ate tonight and I was thinking "Funky Buddha", which is good craft beer. This is a typical chinese-style mass produced bland lager with rice, and probably the most watery and thin beer I've ever tasted. Beautiful bottle though.

Poured out of that cool as hell looking bottle

A: straw to dark colored gold clear body nice fluffy looking head

S: light corn and some rice with a little bit of an off smell like cardboard

T: taste follows the nose perfectly with the cardboard oxidation coming out strongly on the finish

M: Standard for a regular lager lighter to crisp

O: Except for the awful cardboard and oxidation taste of this beer it wouldn't be too much different than most macro AAL beers. It would probably benefit by not being in the green bottles.

This is a light international lager. It uses rice along with barley malt to make it lighter, which is reasonable in a Chinese beer. But, no beer lover would want to drink this stuff. The bottles are beautiful. I bought a second six pack just for the bottles to decorate a window. Of course, green bottles, especially for an import, means drink it fast and keep it in the dark or else instead of no taste you get skunked beer. It will be too late when bought from most stores. If you for some reason actually like the beer then buy it in cans - which they do produce. But the best part is the bottles, so you can't win.

Another purchase due to the interesting green Buddha bottle. I will probably re-use it to bottle mead or cider... I may buy a few more, just for the bottles!

Pours a very, very pale straw with a thin white head.

Aroma is the worst aspect of this beer. Badly skunked due to the green bottle. This is really the only note you get in the smell.

Taste... What little there is... Is non-offensive light lager. The taste is pretty much overwhelmed by the skunky aroma.

Body is thin and watery. Lively carbonation.

Buy it for the bottle. It's an easy drinker... If you can get past the skunk!
