On tap at Hollywood in Itaewon next door to Reilley’s Taphouse (they also have an ok tap selection). It poured more copper than gold but still had lots of hay in the aroma/flavor due to the probable use of adjuncts but had some caramel.

0.33l bottle. Nice one! A non-pale lager in Korea? Amazing.. Anyhow, this is a clear deep deep red beer with a small quickly fading off-white head that sticks nicely to the sides of the glass. The aroma has a mild burned and sweet touch over it. A bit of sour dark malts here as well. Not extreme, but it’s nice with something a bit different from the lagers. The carbonation level is average to soft and it has a thin and quite watery mouthfeel. Tastes alright I guess. Think this is a old bottle (not that it’s easy for me to read Korean) A bit "old" flavors. It’s light dark malty with caramel hints. Low on the bitterness and it ends mildly mouthdrying. All in all, drinkable and one of the better I’ve had so far here in Korea.

Lyckas väcka sinnena ur sin djupa slummer genom att milt ruska om med sin väna alkoholstyrka. Inget för historieböckerna, ej heller för de riktigt kräsna finsmakarna, men Red Rock får livet att kännas en smula lättare. Bra så.

draft - hmmm... this beer rises to the level of somewhat below average. Wow! That’s high praise for this brewery. It’s light amber with a quickly fading head and a mild lightly roasted malt aroma. The flavor is toasted caramel malt and not much else. At least it’s drinkable and has more flavor than their pale lagers.

Bottle. The very best beer I tasted in Korea! Red-brown colour. Aroma of toasted malts and and hops, which very much appears stronger in the flavour along with some caramel and good bitterness. Nice aftertaste indeed.

On Tap - The best Korean beer I had while stationed there for a year. Good reddish color with decent head. Was representative of a Killians-style beer, but not as good in taste or appearance.

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - MAR 24, 2006
Dark redish color with a creamy looking head. Head did not last, nor did it taste creamy. Overwhelming rye flavor what was harsh at the end. One of the best korean macros.

SHIG (3545) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Dark in color with reddish tint. Bitter flavor, knockoff of a Killians irish red for Koreans. Smell was skunky. Not very pleasant, unless there was nothing else.
