2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can [500ml]. Pours a bubbly gold with a large semi-lasting fluffy off-white head. Aroma of grain, straw, vegetal notes, light grassy hops and some sugar. Watery flavour of grain, straw and very light grassy hops. Nothing foul or off in the flavour but there isn’t much flavour at all. Light to average bodied. Like I said, inoffensive but quite dull as well.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Can. Clear pale gold pour with a white head. Grain and pale malts - not interesting but not gross either. Good for what it is.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Blonde bien dorée, presque ambrée, couche de mousse blanche qui disparait rapidement. Mince, en nez elle offre des relents de sucre et de maïs. Aqueuse, peu pétillante, elle est trop sucrée et devient rapidement lassante. C’est une blonde qui allie le côté mince et peu savoureux d’une pilsner, avec le sucre costaud d’une belge, et le mariage est plutôt raté.

500 ml. can. Pours a pale gold with a decent white head. Aroma of grain, malt, and grass. Taste is the same with some metallic coming through. Nothing bad, but very plain.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The appearance was great - it really look inviting and "correct" But the odor was not good - I got corn husks and yeast. Then the taste was too mild - a quaffing bear as one reviewer put it. The after is also still corn husks in my mouth - need another beer to rinse with. Will not buy again. BUT I read a lot of reviews and get the impression this beer is "variable" Mine was a 50cl can I got at E-mart in Korea dated "5/12/14" which in Korea reads December 5th but I fear it meant May 12th and this is Sept-26th!!

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Green plastic bottle holding 50 cl (16.9 fluid ounces), screw-top, best before mid December 2007, drank 1st November 2007.
Poured into one of my Veltin Pilsner glasses ( 20cl size) three times.
All pilsners should be a clear golden yellow in colour, some are really pale, some darker, this is midway between and looked fine. A good white head, which did sink a little fast, to leave a thin covering above the beer which had a steedy stream of bubbles slowly meandering up the body towards the head.
Can you smell dry hops and dry yeast? Well most likely not, in a beer anyway. That is what hit my nose. I normally give pilsners a 3 for aroma because I rarely smell anything, but I can smell this one and it isn’t to my likeing.
The dryness carries on into the taste, again not really to my likeing, it is not refreshing or as clean tasting as a German pilsner and lacks the fizz of an Italian Med Lager. It sits between the two and fails to excite me at all. Strangely, the bigger the mouthful the more I liked it, a supping beer it isn’t, but a throwing or quaffing beer maybe. Trouble is a don’t quaff or throw beer down my throat anymore, I like to supp and savour the taste.
Ever licked a shoe box?

500ml can. Pale yellow body, small white head. Aroma of grains, wet cardboard, cooked vegetable, herbs, a tad metallic. Tastes a little better and drier: grains, some grassy hops, mineral tones. I definitely had worse than this one.
