Can. I had this on a KAL flight from ATL to ICN. The stewardess said it was one of her favorites. I feel sad for her. It tastes like lost hope turpentine.

A golden lager with a thin white head. In aroma, grassy malt with mineral notes, light off notes, light solvent, bad. In mouth, light watery lager with no hops, sweetish, bad. Can from 7 11 next to my hotel. 1800 wons.

Can from a random 7-11 in Seoul. Nose has a vague whiff of lager elements to it, but it really is super light as the name would imply. Taste is damn near water. Completely forgettable.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Bruce for this country tick. Almost clear gold beer, little white head. Light and very dry palate. Minerals. Dry and very papery malt. More paper. Dry finish. Bleh!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can, many thanks to Bruce..... It pours pale yellow with a small white head. The nose is dull sweetness, cereal, dough and paper. The taste is dough, grass, flour, hint of lemon and cereal with a dryish finish. Light body and moderate carbonation. Not much to it. Probably not as bad as expected.

Bottle at Bruce’s. Fuck yeah, I finally get the South Korean pale lager rate I’ve always wanted. The pour’s very light gold with a tight creamy white head. Actually not an unattractive pour. The nose is banana, golden syrup, skunky grain. The taste is lemon squash. Bread. More grain. Little else. Maybe some yellow apples. Light body, quite fizzy. Overall, not great. Still, there’s no truly objectionable flavors.

Bottle shared at Bruce’s. Nowhere near as bad as I was expecting. It actually looked pretty damn good for a pale lager. Smelt a little funky but tasted fine. Not too shabby

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can at Bruce’s on the opening evening of Jack’s Farewell Tour in London - massive thanks to Bruce. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a lasting, frothy white head. Light dry cereal on the nose, some hay. Light sweet flavor, delicate dough, hay, cereal, crispy white bread. Light bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Light sweetness to finish, mellow bitter straw, dry dough. A restrained pale lager - rare indeed. Good work, South Korea.

355ml can (Anywhere, Suwon)
Pale and fizzy. Light fruity esters in the retronasals. Carbonation obvious in the taste. Less crappy than the Cafri, but getting there - it’s desperately watery. Some unpleasant sharp aspects, sourish. A bit nasty in the finish. However, I am parched, so I am going to finish the can (1/3rd of the way round the Suwon fortress walk on a hot day - need fluids!)
