look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into Samuel Adams pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a light golden color with a two-finger white head that quickly dissipates. Minimal lacing left on the glass.

Smell: Skunky. Slightly corny, metallic., watery

Taste: Not skunky like the smell, moderate corn presence, slightly metallic.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, heavier than most AALs, but still light bodied. High carbonation, crisp.

Overall: A beer that I won't be purchasing again, but it's not atrocious.

look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

A: Really pale golden color with a thin and quickly receding white head.

S: Skuuunky. A bit of yeast and pale malt as well.

T: Luckily, the taste wasn't skunky like the smell. Unfortunately, it still wasn't good. A bit of lemon and pale malt and maybe a bit of boiled corn. Strange sour grainy taste on finish. Not really a fan.

A- It is as though this beer was designed for someone that thought Coors light was too dark. It is almost transparent, and the green bottle can cause skunking to occur.

S- Smell is not really there, you can definitely smell the alcohol. fruity, light

T- begins with an almost lemon-grass taste, ends with a grainy, bready yeasty taste. Alcohol tastes very much present in back of mouth throughout drinking

M- Water like consistency, doesn't feel like beer at all (which I guess can be a good thing, if you are new to beer...)

O- I had high expectations for this beer, as I had a professor of Chinese studies highly recommend it. Apparently, she has never had any other kind of beer. The only good thing about this beer is that it is not more readily available in the United States.
