Padron4KM (535) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 17, 2007
640 ml brown bottle. 20070312 date code on label.

Clear pale yellow, any lighter and it would be the color of water.

Aroma is not good. Faint smell of latex gloves.

Flavor is very bland, some hints of lemon and honey but that is barely there.

Overly carbonated like bud light and thatís the only thing that let me know I was drinking beer.

Palest beer I think Iíve ever seen, and tastes about the same, slightly sweet, slightly skunky. I would never buy a Rolling Rock Light, so I donít know what it actually tastes like...but I bet this stuff tastes pretty similar.... Very carbonated, like sparkling water. Actually tastes like it could be sparkling water with beer flavoring.

jgb9348 (4710) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Super clear coloured body with a nice dense white frothy head. Aroma of pale malt, fresh hops, cardboard, lemons, limes, wheat and even some alcohol - very fresh and clean. Light to Medium-bodied; Fresh malt flavour with a good hop balance and some alcohol to keep things interesting. Aftertaste shows some lemon and lime tart and sweetness with a good malt backbone...still! I sampled this 330 mL can for the FINAL time (from this batch) purchased from just about any grocery store from Busan to Seoul, South Korea on 27-May-2007 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia....still with Korean on the side & back of the can!

Beers like this never receive the credit they deserve. This beer, while certainly not spectacular, is pleasant and easy to drink, and goes extremely well with Asian food...

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Very light, clean taste. Itís not great, but it is severely underrated. Iím guessing this is due to low turnover of most of the examples. Get a fresh sample and it is fairly pleasant to drink, especially with spicy Korean food.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2008 I would have to agree with JRedmond... This beer is extremely underrated. It possesses a crisp, clean, refreshing favor that no domestic can quite match.

pintbypint (2593) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 15, 2007
640ml brown bottle. Pours pale straw colour with a white head that dies quickly. Has a grainy, corny scent. Some lemony and light grassy hop notes and corn sweet flavours. A lot of carbonation and a light body make it rough on the tounge. Slightly dry, dull finish.

I bought this from local grocery shop ... you donít see very often beers from South Korea there :) Very pale yellow color, decent white head which then fades away- looks similar to Bud. Sweet corn-grassy hoppy aroma , which is a bit skunky and metallic. Low bitterness, flavor is almost all sweetcorn, only a tiny hint of malts in the finish. Light sweetish aftertaste. This is clearly Korean Bud imitation.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 27, 2007
(Bottled) Very pale yellow with a smallish, white head. Lightly grassy-hoppy aroma with sweetish, rice-corny malt. Sweetish, corny-malty flavor with very low bitterness, slight acidity, and hints of butter. Light-bodied and quite lemonadey-carbonated - but, because of the mild sweetness, itís not that watery. Quite clean, quite boring, for the country pointís sake, maybe...

Gethinbeer (2149) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 17, 2007
From bottle. Yellow in appearance with a thin head if poured properly. Chemical with a hint of malt. One of the best in South Korea. Quite refreshing.
