brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 3, 2012
A clear golden color with a tall white head. Biscuit and bready malt notes with a bit of a grain/cereal sweetness. A hint of floral hops, a mild yeast note, and a bit of apple ester. The flavor has a surprising malt character. Some cracker and biscuit notes give it a nice sweetness, as does some cereal flavor. A very faint floral hoppiness with no perceivable bitterness. Very light and crisp. I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

Compare to a German Lager, this tastes a bit bitter, but compare to other korean beer, OB Golden Lager is the best

reebtogi (3828) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2012
330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a finger of white head that settles down to leave a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild cereal grains with some grassy and citrus notes. Taste is malty sweetness balanced with some grassy and citrus hop bitterness. A refreshing lager that is easy to drink and surprisingly tasty.

zdk (1807) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 17, 2012
bottle at a local korean restaurant. Lightly sweet, grainy beer with nose slightly hoppy with some pilsner-like crispness. The taste is grains and sweet corn. Pairs decently well with spicey bipimbap, but otherwise I can’t recommend it.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2012
355ml Canned from a local supermarket in Seoul. Clear blond coloured beer with some very light carbonation and a medium but diminishing white head. Sweet veggy malty and grainy hinted aroma. Medium palate. Finish is sweet malty with a short bitter grainy undertone. Medium.

SHIG (3447) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 16, 2011
Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow straw with a white head. Aroma is very sweet with a hay like smell. This beer taste very full bodied with a light watery hop finish. An improvement from a Budweiser like company.

madquacker (1019) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2013
This beer is fine. A bit dull but is crisp and does the job. Not sure about the German hops but at least it does not reek of corn. Watery with some hoppy and malty notes. Low carbonation.

Fatehunter (1076) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Pours two fingers of head on a clear golden colored body. Live up to the name. The aroma is not great: metallic and ricey. The taste has a smooth sweetness and balanced pretty well with the mildest lemon bitterness. The texture is crisp with soft edges. It’s not bursting with flavor, but its not bad (aside from the smell).
