Much worse than the slightly older OB Blue. A pathetic attempt at a German-style lager. A truly pretentious beer if there ever was one. The pour is awful, with almost no head. The taste is surprisingly bitter, but not in a good way as if drinking a delicious pale ale. Bottle or tap does not make a difference. Overall all I give this beer a 1 for pretentious advertising out of its class, being overpriced for what it is, and of course for tasting like absolute garbage. Please bring back OB Blue, for even though it was cheap "Bud-like" beer, it was drinkable and it was what it meant to be.

At first, I toyed with the idea of just putting down the terms, Authentic/German/ South Korea and simply walking away from the audacity of the claims......but, what the hell....here’s a real rating. Bottle: Fizzy, bright gold, a large white head. Corn/grain malt aroma. Taste is light, honeyed grain malt, a little soapy. Not bad....really....nothing off, just the typical weak and watery pale lager-ness we have come to know and love from all the corners of the globe.

Tipo pilsener pero sin el final amaizado. Probablemente es una cerveza más fina por esto pero todo es relativo

Bottle 0,33ltr: Golden colored brew with an slightly dry bitter taste with some sweetness. Slightly worser than an American Budweiser, but better than the earlier tasted and rated Cass Fresh of the same brewery. Bought this beer at Amazing Oriental, the Hague.
