Princette (8) - Auckland, - JAN 18, 2011
The best of the Korean beers, again over hopped and a potent brew, but this beer is easier on the palate, its toasted flavour and cleaner water gives it a more satisfactory taste. Points also for its cheap cost (1500 won for a 26 oz bottle) and the fact you get it chilled at virtually any corner store in far off places like Yeongju and Iksan

No head, no lacing. beer is tasteless and easy to gulp down. Its #1 in Korea because its easy to drink. No other reason.

goleiro (133) - Lublin, POLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Piwo z końca świata. W zapachu nieśmiała lagerowość. W smaku nie najgorsze, ma pewien charakterystyczny smaczek.

NeoHippie2 (990) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Golden straw pour with a small white head. Grassy skunk aromas. Flavor is watery skunk all the way. Gross.

Sevenlee (1317) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma is corn, malt extract with hints of grass. Taste is pretty watery. Not exciting in any way.

461er (12) - Heilbronn, Baden-Wrttemberg, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2014
Clear golden with a minimal head. Very little taste of sweetness and very little hops. This beer is more like sparkling water with a touch of beer.

mansquito (3385) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Some restaurant in K-town,Manhattan: Pours yellow with white head. Aroma is light, but a bit grainy. Taste is very light and watery, but has a cheap grainy finish to it. There is the tiniest bit of hops in here. Pretty bad, but a good enough chaser for hearty food.

Bright, golden color with vast amount of carbonation. It has a light grassy aroma and a taste with no distinctive characteristics. A Korean friend referred to this as the "Budweiser of Korea". I would say that is an accurate description.
