1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Can, brought back from South Korea by Palme and shared with the BBGTC, cheers man! :-) So this is the proud flagship of South Korea? Let’s see then. Pours a clear headless light yellow lager body. Nose is maize, grains and light lager adjunct tones. Taste is...very little. A bit astringent in the finish. Hints of corn flakes. Watery palate. Blaah. I need to move to South Korea and start up a microbrewery, cos basically anyone can do better than this.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
0.33l can shared with The Bergen Tasting Crew. Back to the Korean lagers! This is a crystal-clear pale golden beer with a small totally vanishing white head. The aroma has lots of yeasty-sweetness and hints of corn. Can actually remind a bit of a cheap apple cider. Not horrible, but not to pleasant either. Watery as hell in the mouthfeel with a soft carbonation level. As expected; low on the flavors this beer that’s supposed to make me feel excellent. Has a fade acidic hint in the finish. Watery and not very good.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
330 ml bottle picked up in Sulaymaniyah, Iraq. Don’t ask me how it got here but I think that it might have something to do with the fact the South Korean Army was here for years in the region. Any way it has a light gold color with a large fizzy off white head. Armoa is malt, paper and bubble gum. Taste is a weak malt, grain and glue. The palate is slightly rough and the aftertaste is a stange lingering glue/metal aftertaste. It is just drinkable but very strange.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a golden to hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is very sweet and floral. Taste is very nice refreshing with grain and sweet malts, some caramel type attributes.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can thanks to ryan. Pours clear and almost colorless, just a faint yellow tint. Aroma of stale grain. Flavor is a bit better, slighty tart and bready. Not a terrible beer. It has drinkability.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can courtesy of ryan. The pour is a clear straw with a medium white head quickly diminishing. Nose is pear juice and apples. Sugary and fruity with white grape juice. Taste is sweet pear and apple with mild butter. Fruit juicy overall. Powdery finish. Not bad. Pretty inoffensive.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sweet sugary malt with just a touch of apple juice. The taste is very light, just a touch of honey malt, maybe just a touch of grass.

Can courtesy of ryan. Thank you....I think. Clear and very pale yellow, no visible fiber chunks, fortunately. Aroma of straw. Taste is watery rice. Not good.

"Stylish Beer...with fiber." Dark gold color and retains head for a minute. Toasted corn aroma and clothing fibers. Sweetish flavor profile with thickish palate and decent body. Sweet with unabashed corn flavors. For what it is, not bad.
