Judging by the label, this appears to be Pyongyang Beer, not Daedonggang. I’m curious the justification for calling it Daedonggang 15p.
I tried it in North Korea, and it was alright, nowhere near the best I had, but head-over-heels better than any major South Korean beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pretty average stuff, which was an amazing surprise. Lacked the off taste of a beer made mostly from rice, and even had the start of a head. Hazy, which was a surprise for any lager, but it actually left the start of lacing, which was a delight in an Asian lager. Noes of malt and hops in the nose. Taste of malt, floral hops, even some hop bitterness. No depth of course, but the lack of seriously off flavors was something to celebrate.

I would to shout out, HEY I DRANK NORTH KOREAN BEER. It wasnt half bad either. Poured deep amber with a off white head that diminishes. Malt is well roasted and hops are well balanced, not overpowering but there. A little rye and rice flavor, but the overall effect is not of one or the other. I really enjoyed this beer, I will probably support a corrupt system again and partake again.
