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.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

Overall impression: Had to drink it, as Trude carried this big plastic bottle with her from the other side of The World. Thanxxx a lot. I lied and said it was an ok beer.
Personal stats: Bottle from a kind and sweet Trude at work in South Korea. Enjoyed a sunny afternoon by the lovely Akerselva river in Oslo, together with Mr Visionthing and Mr Arve_Christian.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
1L bottle (shared by Cunningham - thanks!) Pours pale golden with a white head. Smells like synthetic pear soda and stable. Taste a bit like pear soda too, or cheap shandy. Slightly unpleasant aroma. Light body and light in flavour. Doesn’t remind me much of beer, except for a very light bitterness in the finish. (2013-04-19)

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
On bottle with Cunningham, thanks. Golden color, good foam. Aromas of boiled vegetables, funny aromas- not much else. Light body & complexity. Poor beer

On draft at the Asiana Business Lounge at Incheon Airport in Seoul, had to have some authentic Korean beer (like it or not). Doesn’t overpower the peanuts. Actually, goes well with the peanuts. Would not purchase.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can aboard KE 17 from Incheon to Los Angeles. Very light grass aroma with some sweetish candy note. Normal pale straw color, lots of foam. Very very light balanced initial; goes a bit grainy in mid; final has small trace amount of grass and some sweet powdery flour. Thin-medium body. So mild and really just evaporates in mid palate. Sort of a candy beer and very fizzy. I wouldn’t have noted as much about it if I hadn’t been in a zoned-out state on a plane.
