phaleslu (9427) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2010
12 oz. can from The Tin Can. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a white head. Notes of sugar, corn, grass. Pretty sweet, actually. Light-bodied, with a watery mouthfeel and higher carbonation. Not a whole lot going on here, but unlike a lot of other Asian pale lagers, there’s nothing aggressively skunky going on, either.

jaghana (5524) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 27, 2010
Bottle 33cl. A clear yellow beer with almost no head and heavy carbonation. Aroma is on old paper and very dry at the beginning, the finish is better with hops notes and a bit fruity. Not so nice but very different compared to other lagers, is there rice in it ?

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 Not good. But better than OB and Cass. One positive, no irritating flavors. Serving: Bottle

Almost clear yellow pour with a bubbly white head. Corn and cereal on the flavor. No aroma. Not something I would order again, even in a Korean restaurant.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Bottle at a Lao restaurant. Pours clear straw with a fizzy bright white head. Not much retention or lace. Sugary, grassy nose. Taste is watery, a bit sweet, nothing really there. No terrible adjunct notes. Probably gains clarity and a lighter body from some rice used in the mash. This has Yakima hops? No way. Pretty boring but unoffensive. Definitely inferior to Beerlao.

probstblueribbon (3728) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2010
330 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold (the open mark told me so!) in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear straw with a so-so bright white head. Aroma: Sweet cereal/grain, very slightly fruity, a touch of wet grassy hops. Palate: Medium-ish body, medium carbonation. Flav.: Minerals, cereal/grain, slightly fruity, non-descript malt-adjunct, a wee hint of grassy hops; dry with a slightly mineral cereal/grain, overall watery finish.

Boring, all the way from Korea. I’m tempted to add a dollop of Kimchi for flavour.

ben4321 (5785) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Location: Tap at a Korean Restaurant, 5/7/10

Aroma: The nose is grassy, some grains, rice, and corn
Appearance: Pale yellow color with a small white head
Flavor: Taste is also corn, grass, rice, a pretty dull flavor
Palate: The body is super light, quite thin
Overall Impression: There isn’t much going on with this one, a fairly typical mild flavored, weak, drinkable, but ultimately forgettable beer.

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2010
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a short and non-persistent foamy white head. Mildly grainy malty aroma with traces of milk and oatmeal. Sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied with a slightly sharp carbonation. Shy grainy pale malty taste; dry-ish malty and slightly bitter finish. Drinkable in some way. Thanks to Mr. Kim, Sa Rang Bang, Essen (also for the kimchi). 08.VI.10

riversideAK (6170) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2010
On tap. Light grainy nose, not much else. Really clean. Pale yellow pour, no head or lace. Light grain, soft clean bitterness. Dry and with not much else going on. A clean pale lager.

altonbrownd (5771) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Bottle from Japanese/Korean shop in Amstelveen. Light golden body with sticky head. Sweet, malty nose. Not really much taste to it. Quite industrial and soapy. Sweetish finish.
