2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very clear light golden beer with average white head. Grainy/bready malts dominate the aroma, even a bit cardboard. Herbal hops in the background. The texture is a bit too thin, the body a bit light. Yet the beer lacks the smooth drinkability that other beers of this style have. I think the original is beat, others are better!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can from Seoul Plaza. Aroma cardboard, raw grainy, rusty iron (metallic). Clear golden colour, moderate white head, long retention. Taste is very empty and watery, only lightly parading the off-flavours, cardboard and iron. Light bitterness and very light grassy sharp hops flavour. Thin bodied and almost moderate carbonation. Definitely nothing I would order again.

Very nice lager. I find it very hoppy for the style, which I liked. Refreshing and drinkable.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma is really harsh. Some moist-grassy hops and earthy cheese. Taste is mostly water (sorry) with a little bitterness in the end. However a full body with well-tempered carbonation. All in all: not my favourite.

Gee-gosh-golly, wish this was available in 12-pak format (like the Hefe-Weizen, Marzen and Wiesn are) because this here is a really easy beer to enjoy. This is what I suspect some pale lagers currently manufactured would someday like to be like, or should be.
