Appearance - Pours a bright, golden yellow with a white, 2 finger head. Average retention. Resulting lace is spotty, mostly clinging to the sides.

Smell - Aroma is a bit skunky at first, but then clears up to sweet grain malts, and a light grass hop.

Taste - Follows the nose; notes of grain, sweetness, counterbalanced by a bit of grass bitterness. Nothing off-putting about the flavor, but nothing special, either.

Mouthfeel - Body is a touch heavier than one might expect from a beer of this style; closer to medium. A bit of stickiness, with a moderate bite from the carbonation.

Overall - An old Chinese restaurant standby, pairs well with most offerings, but goes especially well with spicy dishes like General's Chicken or Kung Pao Shrimp.

Got this beer a few weeks ago. This is the Chinese Heineken i guess. Drank it on a warm evening with my buddy Andy.

Poured in my Struise Brouwers galss this beer looks quit OK when you only look at the head, big white and fluffy. The fluid looks very watery like the beer has no body.

Light smell of citrus. Taste is flat with no carbonation feelable in the mouth. As a beer for a warm day this beers does it's job, no more and no less.
