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.

Pours a very light yellow-gold. Almost like an apple juice. Head is non-existant 30 seconds after pouring.

The smell is over powering of skunk. a hint of sweetness can also be smelled.

There is very little taste to this beer, no complex flavors at all. Slightly over carbonated.

Would definitely not recommend.
