Yanjing Beer 
Posted: 28 March 2015  Beer Republic 3.5 
Yanjing Beer from China The Beijing Yanjing Brewery was only founded in 1980. Yanjing would be classified as American adjunct lager, a watery type of brew made with fillers. Don't drink Yanjing Beer expecting the next revolution.     
Avg price/liter: USD 4.00   ABV %: 4.5  Type: Lager   Chinese beer 
       


Chinese culture dates back more than 10,000 years.  China's Yanjing Beer doesn't.   The Beijing Yanjing Brewery was only founded in 1980.     

If you want to call this a style, Yanjing would be classified as American adjunct lager. What does that mean?  In unadorned English, that translates as a watery type of brew made with fillers.  Here, that filler is rice.         

On some bottle labels, sold in China, Yanjing is billed as the official state beer of China.  I don't know if that's something I'd be bragging about.  An official state beer sounds like some Communist stooge is appointed head of the brewery.        

Yanjing Beer is just another in too long a line of pale watery type lagers.  Call this the less famous version of Tsingtao.  Either would do just as well over a feast of spring rolls and fried rice.  It's not of the quality that you'd seek it out for long drinking sessions with the guys, not unless the beer was deeply discounted.        

Don't drink Yanjing Beer expecting the next revolution.
