Pours a clear straw yellow with a thin white cap that drops away immediately leaving no lacing. Aroma is faint grains and noble hops. Flavor follows the nose, a bit sweet. Feel is light and crisp. Overall only drinkable.

Cerveza con una pequeña cabeza que se evapora en pocos segundos. Tiene un cuerpo ligero, es de baja carbonatación y de un color amarillo pálido. En su aroma se percibe la malta y un poco de lúpulo. En boca es malteada, ligera. Una de muchas.

L:
-pours a very light straw golden with a small to medium,foamy,white head
-light to medium carbonation visible
S:
-lemon,grassy,spicy,light skunk,perfume
T:
-Follows the nose
F:
-medium carbonation
-light body
-slight alcohol noticeable
O:
Very much a light Lager like it's become tradition in Asia.
The stuff you chase your asian food down with or you drink cool or ice cold on a ridiculously hot day while vacationing in Asia.
I can't say it's terrible though (aside from bottling it in green bottles,making it susceptible to skunking), just really boring.

I dont get the bad reviews of this. Maybe because of bias against the chinese perhaps. It smells very much like heineken tastes a bit like it too. Not as strong of a flavor mind you but similar. Would i try it again, sure if it was on sale or if i got a bunch of singles. Its not repulsive in any way if you enjoy or can take the very bitter "beery" smell and somewhat the same for the taste. its not like a micro brew ipa thats for sure.

Doesn’t seem to meet some of the requirements of a EPL as defined here. Aromas were difficult to pull out. Along the lines of corn and malt. Pours pale straw color with thin lace. No hoppiness, no distinct flavor that stands out, no bitttetness and little carbonation. Almost tasted like water. Mineral water has more fizz. Not horrible despite my review. Just meh.

Easily my favorite beer. Not for any logical reasons. Taste wise it is better than most of the American and European macro beers. Admittedly not as complex as some higher rated brews but for 4.5rmb a 500ml at Family Mart it's pretty damn good. Get it locally.
