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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
You know, I like some of those low-rated and thin beers. Beside a meal they sometimes are really fantastic and hit some points. This one not. It is thin. Ok. It is watery. Ok. But it also offers some skunk and the cheapest rice you may imagine in the aftertaste. Disgusting. Awful. No surprise, you see.

Bottle from Dae Yang in Düsseldorf. The beer has got a clear light golden colour with an low, airy head and medium body. Aroma of straw and caramel. Taste of mild hops, basement, grains and bread. Mild and grainy finish with an huge watery ending. You can drink it - but you won’t enjoy it.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a really clear yellow color with a stale corn aroma. Taste is watery but clean and simple. A simple pale lager with no flavor our substance. Good beer for a hot relaxing day but that’s about it.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl Bottle from some toko at Kinkerstraat. Clear pale golden colour, snow-white head. Aroma of some sweet malts, light floral, rice, tiny hint of hops. Flavour is light to medium sweet, light malty, hint of paper, light lemon, rice, light-bitter finish. Fizzy, light-bodied. Not offensive, just not very tasteful or good.
