2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
355 ml can bought at Aeon in Skyline Plaza, Tsuen Wan.
Pissy golden yellow colour; Half finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Minimal lacing and notable fizzy carbonation; Sweet, slightly pungent smell of malt, with corn, grains, light syrup, light choking floral, grapes, and hint of grass; Light sweet taste of weak malt, with corn, light syrup, unknown chemicals, hint of wet cardboard, and notes of citrus & grass; Light body, thin but slightly slick palate; Taste profile is light malt, with cornish and slightly artificial taste, not off-putting but awkward. Also some shades of light grapes. Malt is somewhere between Asian macro Pale and half-arse Premium Lager, somewhat unfulfilling; The chemical taste is not annoying, nor there’s any rubbing alcohol. Hoppiness is murky light floral plus notes of lemon and grass in nose / taste, and near zero bitterness for a sweet finish; Wet after taste, very easy but a bit odd to mouth.
Comments: This is better than most Asian macro Pales, with fair maltyness and tolerable low sweetness. Corned and slightly odd chemical taste aside, the fruity and floral nose give this brew some extra dimension. Barely decent but drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at a nice DC Korean restaurant. This one poured a pretty clear, pale yellow color with a small sized fluffy white head. Aroma was mellow pale malts, some light earthy and grassy malts. Flavor was light lager malts - some light sweetness. Not overtly offensive, clean enough for the meal.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, 64cl. A clear golden beer with a nice white head. The aroma is weak, with some fruityness and pale malts. Hay too. Not much flavor either, a faint bitterness, pale malts and grassy and fruity flavors. Quite thin on the palate, dry and with a pleasant carbonation. Short finish. Not much interesting going on here, but it slakes the thirst. 130815

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Oto Market in Sacramento, CA. Pours light gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is bready with the barest hint of noble hop. Med body. Flavor is virtually non-existent - light bread and a suggestion of herb/earth hop with it being more bitter/dry than malty. But that’s not saying a lot. I’m done.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from a Japan shop in Duesseldorf shared with McTapps. What do you expect from a simple Lager ? Aromas of malt, rice, bit sugar. Just another drinkable beer with a strange, slightly bitter finish. Blow average but drinkable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear golden colour with unsteady low head and medium to thin body. Nose of light hops. Taste of water, light hops, light barley and icetea. Watery and thin finish. There is no real taste at all, but at least it is little bit refreshing and okay to drink.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can. Vague smell of aluminum and a slight bit of corn, making me think of all the other crappy pale lagers this is almost identical to. Taste is vaguely sickly bitter and unappealing. Tick mark for South Korea; time to move along.

500ml bottle (Some Korean Barbeque, Suwon)
Love the sound of the sizzle. The marbling was glorious, and the texture was so succulent. Really tasty and meaty, kept going back for more. and the beer? :-) it’s an inbev pale lager! tasteless fizzy stuff, but no competition ;-)
