2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Had to purchase a 6-pack at the LCBO, so had some at the band jam and some at home, straight from the bottle. This was actually quite surprisingly good and refreshing for a swill. Says to open when the mark of an opener turns blue (on the front label), to have optimal tasting temperature. Now, the sixth one, mark is blue. Pours a light yellow colour with a big white head that is creamy and foamy. Medium-sized bubbles all over the glass, with decent retention and some wavy lacing. Great fresh malt nose at first, but then, turns into an adjunct scent. Refreshing mouthfeel that is crisp with a short finish. Taste of rice (and maybe a little corn) with a little bitterness of grassy hop in the middle. Nothing bad here, just a regular rice swill, and another country tried.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear yellow gold with moderate-sized white head that steadily recedes to a thin white cap. Aroma is fairly mild but dominated by lemon with some grains. Taste is somewhat sweet with grains and lemon. Only a hint of hops. Fairly light body. Better than a typical macro European pale lager, but that’s not saying a lot.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The best of the Korean beers, again over hopped and a potent brew, but this beer is easier on the palate, its toasted flavour and cleaner water gives it a more satisfactory taste. Points also for its cheap cost (1500 won for a 26 oz bottle) and the fact you get it chilled at virtually any corner store in far off places like Yeongju and Iksan

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bomber served in a lager glass. Pours very pale straw with a medium sized white head. Decent retention, minimal lace. Nose is rice, hay, and faint pepper. Not skunky at all which is good. Flavor is mostly non-existent, but slightly sweet. Very light body, fizzy carbonation, watery texture, and an ultra light hop presence on the finish. Tastes like beer flavored water. True.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Bright light-yellow appearance; ephemeral head. Invigorating aroma of fresh-cut grass brings a touch of summertime to these dour Canadian winter days. Refreshing palate and standard malt/hop body pleases, though this is admittedly just your standard world lager. Meets expectations... nothing more, nothing less.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
640 ml. bottle. Pours a very, very light yellow. Decent head. Very faint aroma of malt and lemon. Tastes very, very light. Lots of carbonation. No funky or skunky tastes, so it is drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Perfumey hoppy aroma. Bright golden yellow colour. Minimal flavour - dry, bland metallic. Inoffensive.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Carringtons, Chorlton. Label seemed to be more for a chewing gum than a beer....cool and fresh etc. Poured a light gold colour with some bubbles but no real head. Nose had notes of cardboard and grain with some slight citrus. Taste roughly the same. Actually reasonably inoffensive paired up with some super spicy food. Had much worse.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. Poured clear, pale yellow with a quick dissapearing head. Adjunct aroma, slightly skunky. Crisp light mouthfeel. Tastes better than it smells. Light grainy macro flavour, with sweet malt. Clean finish. Alright for a lawmower beer.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle, 4.5% a/v
Very light straw colour with a quick to dissapear white head. Looks blah. The aroma is barely there, a bit of chemical alcohol, a bit of grass and a bit of metal (strange out of a bottle!). The taste is rather fruity, almost like green apples. It is very light and bubbly on the tongue with a mouthfeel nearly like champagne. The aftertaste is mildly chemical/malt, though the rice in the beer makes it very dry. This beer is actually better than I assumed it would be.
