From a 1 pint 4 oz bottle. Pours a straw color with a lacing of white bubbles. Slightly sweet skunky smell. Light, crisp, carbonated feel. Not much flavor, maybe very light pilsener with a touch of grass. Overall, it's clean, crisp, and inoffensive. Not bad, but not very distinctive either.

Bottle in trade from Solidfunk, thanks for the country! Slightly hazy light golden color with a thin wisp of a white head. Light skunk, pilsner and a touch of floral earth and faint metal. Better than I expected really.

355ml can poured into pint glass 17/2/16

A clear straw yellow with some giant bubbles feeding a very short lived finger of foam that leaves no lace

S rice cakes, wet paper, soggy hay, has a macro thing going for it that's fairly typical but not overly offensive

T more of the same really, some green apple added top the mix

M thin and watery, bubbles fluff it up and it flattens out instantly, strange wet paper with apple sauce finish

O reminds me of the big American macros, cheap malt pumps out what you paid for, not awful but nothing good either

like so many before it this is a one and done, a country tic and not a whole lot more

Had this on the plane ride to Taipei last week. When I saw "Taiwan Beer" on the menu, I figured it was some beer from Taiwan that no one outside of Taiwan would recognize by name. Then I got the beer and it was actually called Taiwan Beer. Alrighty then. Loved the super dated graphic on the can and the beer actually wasn't bad at all. Relatively clean, no crazy off flavors. Not the first thing I'd reach for, but if it came down to this and most of the other beers of this style, I'd go for this again.
