Bottle at home from some asian supermarket. Light yellow golden beer, small head, aroma is hay, some malts. Taste is quite lemony, light bitter, some sweetness. Not bad, actually rather good

Had this "fresh" in Gangnam on a business trip at a Korean barbeque place. Tasted great with the food - light, drinkable, not much going on but in a good way. Nice pale lager - clean.

A- Lemon, corn, cereal.
A- Yellow golden color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Lemon, sweet corn, cereal, grains.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, refreshing finish.
O- My expectations were low not only because it was a import pale lager but it was over a year old. Just wanted the country tick. What a shock though! It wasn’t half bad, Lots of lemon and not the artificial abrasive lemon taste. Pretty refreshing. I don’t normally compliment lagers but if I’m ever in Korea I’ll have no qualms about drinking this one.

Brought back from Korea by my mate. Fizzy pale lager with almost zero taste. My first Korean beer, happy days!

Bottle. Faint metallic aroma. Pours golden with a small white head. Rice , metallic notes, bubblegum? Very thin with a watery finish. Not good.

Pours clear yellow with thin white head. Almost no smell. Light malty aromas. Medium carbonation, light body. Very short finish. Watery and insipid like most of industrial lagers.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
640ml bottle from a Korean supermarket in Chicago proudly proclaims this as "Korea’s #1 Beer: Ultimate refreshment with fizzy and crisp taste" Pours a clear pale yellow with big fluffy white head that never quite disappears, but doesn’t leave much lacing either. Aroma has grass, corn, and cardboard malts. Taste is on the sweet side, with no taste of hops or any bitterness in the finish. Body is light and watery with lots of carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. It gets worse as it warms up. Overall, another boring pale lager which could have come from any country. If this is #1 in Korea, it suggests that Korean’s don’t have many good alternatives.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
330ml bottle from a Korean shop in Düsseldorf. Sweetish and very grainy beginning. Nearly no bitterness there, not even in the end. Lots of grain, moderate sweetish with an abrupt ending. Not deep. Strange brew. As there is no bitterness in the end (absolutely none), something is missing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Drank this from a tabletop draft system at Beer King in Seoul, South Korea. Very light aroma with a little hay and almost no hops. Crystal clear straw under a pristine white cover that drops relatively quickly. Smooth light malt flavour that is slightly lagery, but with extremely low bitterness and hops flavour. Smooth, medium high carbonation, easy to drink, but extremely boring.
