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.

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.

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.

(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...

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.

The smell when I opened the bottle made me recoil. I almost poured it right there. Once the smell wafted away, I was able to drink it. To my surprise it was not bad, it just wasnít. Slightly smooth mouthfeel, but no real noticable tate, just a touch of malt in the aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2011 11.13oz bottle. Bought this beer after seeing it in the movie "The Host." It is advertised as being made from fresh spring water - and it tastes pretty much like water. "Like having sex on a canoe...its f*cking close to water", thoroughly enjoyable, easy to drink, nice taste, underrated (better than most mainstream american pale lagers). The temperature gauge on the side of the bottle informs you on the perfect time to consume your beverage...money. Thanks Korea, you rock!

Bottled. Pale yellow colour, no head. Aroma is weak cooked rice, almost non-existant. Flavour is rice and grain. An extremely boring product....

Poured a really pale yellow color, lots and lots of initial carbonated head, many bubbles rising in the body for the whole drink. The head had good retention, weak lacing. The aroma upon opening the bottle revealed skunk, but it went away after the pour and as I smelled the glass. The flavor was bready, grassy, corn-like. The flavor was actually not bad for a pale lager, I wasnít disgusted, although it was a little bit on the weak side. The corn was there for sure, but this was light and refreshing, finishing with a lightly grassy but dry finish. Some grains and bread notes, even a bit herbal. Ok, thatís too much complexity in a description of a beer I used primarily to get another country on the passport.
