1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Canned, Light yellow coloured beer with average carbonation and a small white head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Medium palate. Finish is little bitter, with a strange sweet connotation, somewhat grainy and little sticky. Strange one.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle, 4.5%, BB Dec 2015. Koreaís #1 beer. Front of the bottle says this has a ífizzy tasteí, whatever that means. Pale yellow, sparkling, clear, big foamy white head, light lacing. Aroma is jeans, lemongrass, pale malts, touch of corn. Body is light, foamy, soft tingly carbonation. Taste is watery, diluted barley malt syrup, a little honey. Very plain flavours, but at least itís crisp and dry with a touch of hop bite. Could drink four pints without noticing. Humid as hell today, so a good beer for the conditions.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 wasnít half bad, Lots of lemon and not the artificial abrasive lemon taste. Pretty refreshing. I donít normally compliment lagers but if Iím ever in Korea Iíll have no qualms about drinking this one.

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 "Koreaís #1 Beer: Ultimate refreshment with fizzy and crisp taste" Pours a clear pale yellow with big fluffy white head that never quite disappears, but doesnít 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 Koreanís donít have many good alternatives.
