Had a bunch of this in Busan because the 40’s were cheap, but it is not good at all.

From a bottle poured a clear golden color with a fair amount of head. Typical plae lager not much flavor or any finish.

330ml, bottle, peckhams, Glasgow. It says on the bottle "from naturally fresh water". Never has a label on a bottle spoke so much truth. This was a bottle of water that had a bit of carbonation and looked pale yellow. That’s it.

A big bottle at a Korean restaurant in New York. Pale golden body with a thin white head. No aroma at all. No flavor, no body, no bitterness nothing at all. Could this really be beer? I give it 3 point overall impression because its does not have any unpleasant flavors either.

mmmbeer (1283) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 30, 2008
12 oz. bottle served in lager glass at local Korean resturant- transparent golden yellow in appearance, large white head slowly went away in three minutes, light carbonation. Aroma of grass, corn, and wheat. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is light but still noticeable, not very watery which is appreciated, finish is crisp and clean. Surprisingly refreshing, and it helps to put the fire out when eating very hot dishes!

BeerEssential (96) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Pours basically a pale yellow with a short-lived lead the disappeared almost immediately. Very, very slight sweet barley aroma, which gets a bit more pronounced as this beer gets warmer. Little carbonation and little bitterness..little taste overall. Just like a lot of Japanese beers, this Korean beer is really meant to be consumed in large amounts, and in this case, while eating lots of spicy Korean food. This is not meant to be put up against the best of Belgium, so you can’t fault it too much. Can’t say that is tastes "bad".

MrBunn (2523) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours a rather unenticing yellow with a big (and short-lived) fizzy head. Aromas are sweet adjunct malt, apple juice and grass. Maybe I’m just really thirsty, but this goes down fairly well... I wouldn’t say that it is a wonderful beer, but it is nice enough for the evening. Flavor is unbalanced a little by the sweet adjunct presence, but it finishes nicely as this is balanced out by watered down grass presence. Even though it is a little thin, it helps keep it very refreshing.

TheBeerGod (5436) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle. Pale yellow pour with a tall fizzy white head. Nose is cereal grains, sweet malts, corn syrup and grassy hops. Taste is also sweet malts, corny flavors, grassy hops and buttered bread. Light bodied with fizzy, bubbly carbonation. The finish is more sweet malts, corn syrup like flavors, cereal grains, buttered bread and grassy hops. Actually this is very drinkable, non-skunky and refreshing.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Bottle. Wow, this was surprisingly not good. Pale yellow pour, minimal head. Watery all around in aroma and taste. Some metallic corn/rice flavors. A little sweet. Tasted sort of okay after eating really spicy Korean food, but thatís about it.

draft - What can I say? Itís a somewhat tolerable pale lager, but thatís about it. Itís sweet with grainy malt flavors, very little aroma, a thin body, and it goes down fast. At least itís better than some of the other popular pale lagers from America and elsewhere.
