Standard beer. I may have got a fresh batch here in Hong Kong because I could taste some apple flavor in the beer this time. Not a bad beer but nothing spectacular. Session beer. Good for any occasion. Good when straight out of a cool fridge at about 2-3C. Carbonated, clean, crisp. No bad aftertaste when cold. Will drink it again when in HK. Overall acceptable and decently priced local beer.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle.

Look - light yellow, fizzy carbonation. no head, no lacing.
Smell - faint smell of grains and light hops. none of that unpleasant smell from other adjunct lagers though, so that's a plus.
Taste - lacks flavor, but clean and crisp.
Feel - light bodied, medium-high carbonation, light ABV.
Overall - I've drank so much of these during my trips in China, so maybe I'm a bit biased. However, I do think it tastes better than many of the adjunct lagers on the market. Would not mind drinking a half dozen of these over the course of a night with late night BBQ or something.

Staple in Asian restaurants, otherwise hard to find. Really, it is not all that better or different than Bud or other AALs offered, so if there is a price difference between "imports" and "domestics" at your favorite Thai joint, choose the bud.

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
