1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. Vaguely lagerish in appearance, with fine lacing and soapy head. Weak nose of corn and grains. Taste is sweet corn, grassy sticky malt. Fairly highly carbonated, and pretty damn awful.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Sweet corny nose, pours on the darker side of golden, but extremely clear and almost incomplete at the bottom, medium carbonation with a sudsy bright white head. Very watery light body with less carbonation than expected, sweetness is very candyish and slightly floral. No bitterness, mostly clean. Does have a bit of verve in the effervescence department, I’d probably have it again depending on food accompaniment.

Draught. Pours a clear pale yellow color with a small white head on it. Nose is slightly sweet (my colleague smelled vanilla, though I think she’s crazy). Taste and nose were much like a typical pale lager to me. Nothing special.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Another standard Asian lager, perhaps a little sweeter and fuller tasting than its South Korean companions. Substantially better on tap than in a bottle, easily found all over most of Seoul. Not bad at all with some spicy food or Korean barbecue.

Bottle (Everywhere, Suwon)
Just another pale lager. Fairly clean, some gentle malts in both the aroma and taste. A touch fuller in taste than the gnats’ piss adjunct beers here.

On tap at 7 Bar. It pours a gold color with no head & a mild grassy aroma. The flavor was hay, grass with a mild bitter finish. Boring but ok cold.
