Poured a nice light amber, with about an inch of light foam. Smell was like that of a mass produced beer from an area that caters to steelworkers....and the taste matched the aroma. This is not a negative if that's your thing...fact is though....this is nothing special is a VERY special bottle.
I've spend many weekends in central PA in my daughters college soccer days trying local brews I spotted in my travels...Lucky Buddha would be right at home in the Keystone State.

Incredibly clear. Like looking through a yellow tinted window. Smells slightly skunked until you get your nose in there, a little metallic similar to a Heineken. Taste isn't special

Poured from 11.2 oz bottle into pilsner glass. Appearance: pours a 1" white head that drops moderately with some light lacing. Color is somewhat cloudy light gold with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma: yeasty white bread, a bit of grassy hops. Mouthfeel: light and watery, with a damp finish. Flavor: mild barley sweetness, a bit of paperiness, some grassy hops, and sour tang that borders on the edge of unpleasant. Overall: ok, but just not much going on here. The body is light and flavor profile is as well.

Pours a clear yellow with 1 finger head. Smells very malty. Tastes very watered down with a malty finish. Okay carbonation, okay lacing. Cool bottle design. Wouldn't buy again.

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.
