0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
this has to be one of the worst beer iíve tasted in my life...
the aroma is fair but not very differentiated from a beer that would be made from a committee of thousands of bean counters.
palate, apart from noticeably lesser than aroma, too fizzy on the tongue. you feel more of carbonation than any taste.
i hear from some locals that the liquid is good when you drink it at the brewery on their tours... but i donít want to visit the brewery each time i want a beer.
itís number 1 selling beer in korea because itís the cheapest and the fizziest.... more carbonation for the buck may be what locals prefer in their beer but not I.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 ml bottle as ďHite Ice PointĒ bought at CR Vanguard Supermarket on Prat Avenue, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Pale golden yellow colour; One quarter finger head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Very small lacing and minimal carbonation; Sweet, slightly pungent smell of malt, with corn syrup, rice, light syrup, light fruit nectar, soda water and hint of grass; Mid to light sweet taste of thin very malt, with strong rice, grains, light fruit nectar, soda water, very light wet cardboard, and notes of lemon & grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is macro-Pale thin malt, with pretty strong rice (not overbearing though) and some good notes of peach-like nectar. Some syrupy feel but not sweet, wet paper is only a whiff. So soÖHoppiness is hints of lemon and grass in nose and taste. No bitterness, just soda water non-finish; Wet after taste, very easy to mouth.
Comments: This could have been another Asian macro also-ran, yet the grain taste is stong but okay-ish tasty, some fruit nectar nose and taste make it a bit more likeable. Iíd say itís better than Cass Fresh. A drinkable Korean macro.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a finger of head on a clear golden colored body. Low head retention.
The aroma is stale white rice. Not great, not good.
The taste starts mildly sweet and becomes increasingly sweet to the finish. Not enjoyable.
The texture is crisp with sticky edges. Moderate carbonation but still fizzy.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
On the plus side, this beer doesnít have a lot going for it other than there are no " bad" flavors. Does seem to be fresh. Itís in a can, so no light struck problems. On the down side- no head or lace. Thin, fizzy. Corn flavors and aromas. Zero complexity. The odd thing is trying to calculate its worth. Iíve seen bottle water that is selling for more than what I believe this to be worth- at least in my low cost of living home town.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
The glass fills with pale gold, clear, content. The head is weak and quickly disappears with only a small lacing left.
The aroma is expected: malt and grains. Although gentle, quite pleasant.
The taste is bittery and light, The finish is neutral without any real bitterness.
Nice for a refreshment, but not much to the taste.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hits the mark as far as plain, generic European lager. Light pale grains, some very light earthy hops. Generic enough not to overpower a good Korean meal. But thatís about it.
