Pours a dark copper colour with not much head and minimal lacing. Sweet, grainy with a dry, light hop finish. Very flavourful lager, almost like a hopped pale ale.

One of my favorite lagers. I have drinking this beer since my restaurant days in Norfolk, Virginia in the mid 1980’s. A great full bodied lager with great color and taste as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Aroma floral, flowery, assertively and surprisingly hoppy. Light to moderate caramel. Clear amber colour. Okay head. Taste is simple, clean, light to moderate body. Hops shine, flowery and floral, but less than aroma suggests. That is a good thing. Moderate bitterness. Hops balanced with caramel malt. The caramel malt flavour is a bit too much for me to enjoy. This beer aims to pack a bigger punch than desired. Remains a good beer all the same, but not very sessionable.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear amber with modest head and lacing. Nose has malt without sweetness, bready aroma that easily readies you for tasting clean and wanting that first sip. Dry with light mouthfeel, easy subdued low hop balance.
