Like a fall baitpile...apples and corn. Quite watered down, even for a foreign pale lager. Pours a champagne bubbly pale yellow with a ton of fizz. Aromas and flavors are of corn and apples. Finish has a tart funk.

Bottle. Pours a pale golden color with a white head. Aroma of grain. Flavor is pretty lacking. Easy to drink, but that doesnt make it good.

Pours a light golden color with a white head. Aroma is light of earthy grains, floral hops and not much else. Flavor is about as non-exciting as the aroma. Crisp finish.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
As clear and colorless as any beer I have had. Light gold, kind of like weak urine! A small and very short lived white head. Unpleasant aroma. The flavor couldn’t possibly be as bad as the above, and it isn’t. However, it is only a little better (or less bad). Some malt and some rice. Soap, too. A touch of pepper spice is welcomed as an actual interesting beer flavor. This is a below average beer in a bottom of the barrel style.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The first beer I sampled from my Beers from around the world 10 pack from World Market. This was an odd one, but at least I was able to knock S. Korea off of my beer map. Weird bubblegummy taste.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pint bottle. My first from South Korea. Pours clear gold with a one finger fizzy white head that faded fast. The nose is lemon zest, grain and grassy hops. The taste is sweet malt, light citrus and grass. Lighter bodied. Meh, not horrible. Refreshing on a hot day.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale yellow, large head falls to nothing. Smell of raddish, lemon and soap. Taste was lime with a touch of grass. Very thin and foamy palate. Koreans seem to go for heavy carbonation, perhaps to cleanse the palate after the spicy food they serve up.
