smells hoppy, fruity, american hops - melon, bright fruitiness. colour is light amber with a fair head. taste is pretty bitter, pleasantly herby, a little spicy. a good palate. a pretty great beer that fits the style from an otherwise awful brewer. interesting

One of the best macros in South Korea. It’s a English bitter and has nice hoppy/malty character in it. Bread,ester,caramel,noble hop aroma, slight bitter and sweet finish. Great.

Many thanks to Vincent for this 500ml can! The beer starts nice bitter with hints of the typical Ale flavour. Easy to drink, moderate nice and bitter, round and malty with typical Ale aftertaste. Dry malt, hints of roast. Not too deep, but for a Korean Bitter quite good!

330ml bottle into pint glass. Soft malt nose. Bronze coloured beer with large fluffy white head. Very light carbonation. Looks and smells like a standard English bitter. Flat mouthfeel, smooth caramel malt finish. Tiny tangy bitterness right at the end. Yep, this is classic English bitter. Interesting for a Korean beer, run of the mill in England.

Bottle. Pale amber with a white head. Aroma of caramel, biscuit, some vague citrus and spices. A bit fizzy. Biscuit, some blackcurrant, lemon, pepper. Decent bitterness. OK.

Can from Homeplus. Queen’s Ale 5.4% Extra Bitter Type served in a pint glass. It pours an orange gold with a soapy head of beige foam. The nose is pretty decent a sharp fruitiness mixed with a biscuity caramel sweetness. Fairly soft mouthfeel on a full body. The taste is a bit too sweet for me but it’s got some one dimensional hoppiness, sweet caramel graham biscuits and a somewhat bitter almost metallic finish. Boring but OK. I think I like this more than the blond, it’s more my speed.

Hoppy and fruity on the first sent but too bitter in th end. Only choice of beer if you like hoppy beer in Korea.

asheft (2989) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle at Alibi, Seoul. Aroma is a blend of earthy and faintly citrusy hops with spicy melanoidins. Almost clear bronze under a lacy, white collar. Not surprisingly, the flavour is quite bitter, with earthy English hops and some spicy malt melanoidin that are a bit sherry-like. Medium body, moderate carbonation, almost crisp.

A solid commercial beer. In Korea, there are only cheap swill, mass-market imports, and super pricey craft beers to choose from. Queen’s Ale offers a decent middle ground: more expensive than the mass Korean lagers, cheaper than the importer IPAs, and with a taste to match their middle position. This beer has a decent hoppy bitterness when compared with non-craft beers. A little harsher and less refined than the upscale beers, but much better than drinking another bland lager.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear medium straw colored body. Looks good. The aroma has a mild lemon note to it. Not much but it’s there. The taste has a metallic pine bitter flavor throughout with a grapefruit finish. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. It’s an attempt at getting some flavor in the beers of Korea, but it doesn’t work well.
