Strykzone (6050) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2009
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 couldnít possibly be as bad as the above, and it isnít. 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.

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.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2009
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.

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.

not good. pours a pale yellow with a small white head that quickly goes away, not much lacing. smell is a typical lager smell, somewhat sour. taste is watery, grain, sourish malt, touch of corn, ends with a strange aftertaste that is somewhat nutty.

Iíll plunge right in and make the obvious joke about adding an "S" to the name and add that if the brewers made this change and sold it in low-cost six packs, the gimmick might help them outsell Lucky and TNT. This stuff tastes like sparkling water with a faint hint of hops and is distinguished from discount beer only by virtue of the fact it comes in a 640 ml bottle. Still, given itís 4.5% alcohol content, even the larger bottle isnít enough to get you drunk enough to start enjoying the stuff. Still, thereís a certain value in being sober enough to carry on a conversation with a woman at a party beginning with, "Yeah, itís not very strong beer, but we drank it all the time that year I was in Korea. Yeah, I was doing some charity work there, but I donít want to bore you. Tell me about yourself..."

Bottle. Pours a straw yellow color. Not much head at all. Very watery, but then other pale lagers. Smells like malts and some nuts. Taste is smooth.

Served with Korean BBQ... Very sweat, corny with a small amount of fruit in the finish. Piss yellow with a foamy head that goes completely away within seconds of pouring it.

Nose is almost none existent when poured into glass. Tastes maybe of mild grain, corn, grass flavors but not much. Slight nutty or butter aftertaste although fleeting. Basically its a mildly alcoholic and equally flavored bottle of water.
