(Bottle 33 cl) A South Korean beer brewed under English license in the Czech Republic - that is indeed a trulu multinational affair. But I’m sorry to say, that in spite of all the effort this is a very, very sad beer. Main flavour is old mushrooms. The czechs should stick to their own quality lagers.

Had this one after a Kirin, and found it less flavoursome, but more crisp. Typical citrus hopping for a beer of this style, ie. nothing unexpected, along with being low on flavour with the malt (rice adjuncts are responsible for this I guess). A carbonated mouthfeel added to the crispness/dryness of the beer.

punkpie (19) - Covina, California, USA - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 Pours a urine sample yellow... kinda stinky... very dry, but easy drinking... not much flavor... though prolly good with sushi... I was not impressed.

pootzboy (1608) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2005
Poured a sickly pale straw color... tiny white cap that vanishes immediately, no lace, no aroma, no real taste...but very crisp and dry.....acheived with agressive infused carbonation and bittering oils. Much like club soda with lemon. At least this is one mega brewer with the guts to ’fess up to using rice as a main ingedient.

not the best, not the worst. pretty average if you ask me. Dry, with bittness in the middle and after. I’ll assume that rice is a ingrendent. Probaly goes good with Sushi.

Pours very pale yellow with little head. Low on malt and hop aroma and flavor. Not much there. My least favorite of the Japanese lagers.

Quite pale. Not much color, not much head, not much aroma, not much taste, not much body... not much.

If Mr. Myagi had anything to say about this, he would slit his wrists. Dry, with no malt or hops to speak of make this a kamikazee’s dream. Drink before your death, coward; this stuff sucks, and so do you.

Dry beers didn’t work for long in America and they don’t work much better in Japan. This beer lacks flavor, and aroma. It is way too light to be called a premium beer. The only thing good about it is the size of the bottle!
