2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Korean resturant. Not bad at all. Sweet flavor that was a little different than I am used to from a pale lager. I actually liked it.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Golden color with film for head. Super-dry your not kidding, almost no aroma or flavor whatsoever. A little skunk with some spiciness. Sorry canít say much else.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle at a sushi reataurant. Pale yellow with a puffy white head that quickly disappears. Hyperactive carbonation that made it look more like ginger ale than a beer. Mild aroma, a bit of malt and some canned veggie notes. Very little flavour. Went OK with my sushi as I didnít really want anything with a lot of flavour to get in the way of the taste of the fish - but I couldíve gotten the same effect with a bottle of mineral water...

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Bottle 33 cl) A South Korean beer brewed under English license in the Czech Republic - that is indeed a trulu multinational affair. But Iím 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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
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 ífess up to using rice as a main ingedient.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
not the best, not the worst. pretty average if you ask me. Dry, with bittness in the middle and after. Iíll 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.
