I dunno - are we drinking the same beer? I thought this might pass for lightly beer-flavored soda water.

First had: bottle in a gift set

Yeah, it's from China. But it's not much different from any other adjunct lager. Pours a pale, watery, golden-straw color with a puff of white head that fizzles down to nearly nothing. Aroma of weak grains and a passing touch of hops, with the classic green bottle skunk. Taste of watered-down grains and corn, funk and skunk, harsh and metallic. Light and watery mouthfeel, and definitely to be avoided at all costs.

Tsingtao

Had this while in China at a restaurant.

A = Poured a pale straw colour. Really pale. Almost looks like tainted water.

S = Faint smell of light grains. Pretty much non existant.

T = Tasted like it looked. Sweetly tainted water with a hint of bitterness. Terrible.

M = Very low carbonation to add to its tainted water look. Bleh.

D = If you can't tell by now, I hated this beer big time. Only thing it has going for it in China is the fact that it is always availiable and damn damn cheap. Avoid it folks.

Skunky beer. Why drink this beer when you got so many AAL that are more trustworthy.
