Pirullisen kamala. Samaa sarjaa kuluneen viikon kanssa. Paha ja huono kaikin puolin. Ei.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle poured into a ordinary glass at a good Korean restaurant in Geneva. A: Pours a pale yellow lager color with a medium bubbled white fluffy lager head. Small retention and only few lacings left S: Simple beer. Mainly adjunct malts and flowery hops T: Follows the nose. Nothing special, crispy malt followed by a mild hops bitterness M: Very light body, low carbonation and mild bitter aftertaste O: A large production rice based lager. Nothing special here...

Very pale yellow. Instead of a body there’s a vacuum. Probably made from diluted water.

YantarCoast (203) - Moscow, RUSSIA - OCT 10, 2014
330ml bottle from local off-licence, labelled as Hite Ice Point. Very surprised to see Korean beer in Moscow. Pours piss yellow with no head. Corny aroma. Taste is very much like a non-alcoholic beer. Very watery and falls apart when it warms up. Bad stuff.

Pours pale gold with little head. A slight taste of corn, very little malt. A bit sweet, watery. Easy enough to drink since it doesn’t taste much anything, so good for thirst?

"a random "seasonal" or maybe a one timer at the local beer store. i’d never seen it, and it was just over a buck, so what the hell. pretty foul stuff, though. yellow rice soaked pee-pee water. not the worst i’ve had, but not too far off."

kwik-lime (1373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Inoffensive but immensely boring beer. Corny, somewhat like Budwesier, with precious little hop character. Best thing I can say about it is it was cold. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No head, no lacing. beer is tasteless and easy to gulp down. It’s #1 in Korea because it’s easy to drink. No other reason.

640ml bottle, pale gold with a brief head, mild aroma, watery grasy taste & lingering dry finish, not that good
