Snow Beer, China Resources Breweries Limited (originally brewed in) Shenyang, China – Light straw colored, Snow pours bright. A low suggestion of grain rises off the beer with a hint of cooked corn. Generally of the American Pilsner style, it has a light body with just enough hops to offer a little bittering bite. Mouthfeel is light and carbonation is lively.  Much like the Japanese Dry Beer style the Chinese to desired a light beer they could consume without interfering with food. Snow seems to fit that mold.
