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.

Green bottle at the Chinese restaurant tonight.
Pours a pale straw color with a decent sized white head that dissipates slowly. Smells of grain and a hint of earth and little else. The flavor is light grain with some earth and a slight mineral metallic flavor. Light body with a spirited level of carbonation and a thin watery mouthfeel. Even for a light lager this leaves much to be desired. Light body with minimal flavor.

Presentation: Green 12oz custom bottle with Chinese letters around the neck. Made with water from the famous pure mountain water of Laoshan. Wherever that is

Appearance: Pale, clear light goldow with a thin white ringed lace with average retention.

Smell: get mostly grains and hoppy floral notes.

Taste: MouthfeeL and body are moderate and light. Grainy corn husk and some malty sweetness are noted. Slight skunkingess is helped by bready flavours, and a tingh of hop bitterness Finishes with some pleasant crispness.

Had this in NYC Chinatown and was a nice complement to the meal
