In the green bottle at a restaurant. Standard 3 rating.

Smells of rice, corn, green vegetables. Snap peas. Slight crisp pilsner aromas.

Flavor actually has a loud, pleasant distinct hop bitterness with only some mild skunky lager flavors; crisp biscuit/pilsner malts, and edamame on the finish. It's very "green" tasting, but fresh and crisp.

Feel is crisp and clean.

Refreshing lager to go with sushi!

Tsingtao got it in a restaurant.

Look: Yellow golden color.

Smell: Sweet corn.

Taste: Malt.

Feels: Light to medium body. Easy drinking. Very soft and clean

So overall would I recommend it? For the price not really. Nothing to expect much, but if you got it on special it is something different that the American Brewery.

Nothing special. Malty up front and a little too much fizz on the back end. Decent beer....give it a try

This was a pretty solid brew, it blew away my expectations. It had a yellow look with a lot of bubbles and a decent head. It smelt like malt and cereal grains. The taste was very smooth and clean along with the aftertaste which gave a little bit of malt flavor as well as rice grains.

From a 640ml bottle. Seems to say best by 10/17/17. Pale straw color with a finger of white head. Smelled very skunky when opening the bottle, after pouring it's more of a faint herbal smell. Light feel. Not a lot going on tastewise. Straw, a hint of hops, and a soft clingy finish. Overall, a clean, drinkable lager with no off flavors but it doesn't have much smell or taste.
