unfortunately, too high carbonation and little waterly. but you can find some traces of noble hops. also there is no bad smell. among korean lagers, kloud is quite good.

Yet another nearly identical Asian pissy lager. The same color, taste, aroma, etc., as Tiger, Hite, Cass, and Budweiser. No thanks.

Pours a clear golden piss yellow from the can with fluffy dissipating white head. Aroma of shitty lager yeast, sweet malt. Taste follows, biscuit malt and horrible pale lager. Meh.

Sorry, no expert at writing tasting notes... Taste is usual overly light (Korean bear). Poor attempt at differentiating from other pales on the Korean market - Why is it called "Kloud" when it’s equally clear? Usual ethanol added to hops juice, still better than "Hite" and "Cass" offers (rice-based to minimize local tax assess... and flavour)

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2015 Bottle at Maekju Changgo in Pohang. Very very light clear gold. The nose is a bit ashey corn. Light bodied with a dry finish. The taste is fairly sweet graininess. Meh.

On tap at Alibi in Seoul. Pleasant hay and pilsner malt aroma with very faint noble hops. Crystal clear straw under a quickly dropping, lacy white cover. Fairly bland lager with ethanol coming through the weak malt and noble hops, interesting corn flakes accent; bitterness is low but assertive in this weak beer. Light body, moderate carbonation, almost crisp.

355ml bottle. All kinds of hilarious stuff on this label. This beer is the "Water free original gravity recipe." Whoever’s doing their marketing has some work to do to get legit. Golden pour, surprisingly hoppy nose as this seems to be a completely fresh import. The hallertauer can actually be detected in the nose with a light herbal character over biscuity hops. The flavor is your standard swill, it is easy to drink and watery but also slightly offensive in its own way.

Surprisingly drinkable. Bought a 500ml bottle at E-mart (Yeoju S. Korea) for $1.50. Head is fine, good golden color -aroma ummm not so great - a bit of the Korean fermented everything note but otherwise fruity-not really hops . Flavor is better -like any good lager with just a hint of flour paste "dough?" so not the best for sure. Palate is okay except still the flour paste lingers but mostly nutty and favorable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 17, 2015 Typical pale lager that has light aroma and taste. It pours clear liquid of pale-to-golden color with white head. lightly sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, and thin texture. It has aroma of bread, some ordinary malts, grass, herbs. Overall balance is not bad.

colour is piss yellow. taste seems to vary from serving to serving, sometimes corny crap, other times approaching a mainstream, generic pale lager balance. still worth a grab over anything else for the 50/50 chance it’ll be alright. just barely an OB golden conqueror.
