Kolor jasnosłomkowy, piany brak.Aromat słodko kwaskowy. Smak nieznany, może siano. Cienias wśród piw, czy to jest piwo?

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottles from many places across the DPRK whilst on my tour of the country.
Pours golden with good 2 finger head. Aroma of biscuit and some honey. Initial biscuity malt on the taste then some light grainy notes, sweetness comes through the most though, a nice and sweet aftertaste.

Had the pleasure of drinkings this when a neighbor smuggled this home from North Korea. Pretty standard simple lager, but the use of corn is notable. Its pretty sweet.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a yellow color with a thin white head. Aromas are malty, grassy and kind of sweety. Short aftertaste. A boring industrial lager who would deserve an overall 5/20 if not coming from North Korea !!

Bottle. (huge thanks to Björn who bought this one in North Korea)
Clear golden with a medium white head. Fairly sweet with malt, some notes of cardboard and pepper. Light body with a short aftertaste. Boring but drinkable.

@basunen: tack till Gyllenbock. Ölet har en tydlig malig ton. Svag smak av svartpeppar annars ganska blekt.

640ml bottle in North Korea. Rich golden amber, good head. Biscuit grain aroma. Biscuit grain malt flavour. Smooth with sweet aftertaste. Good well balanced beer. Best mass produced beer in North Korea. Rating applies to the first bottle I tried. Subsequent bottles not so good.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
640 ml bottle. 11128:2009. Courtesy of mjs. Big thank you!
Clear pale golden colour with small white head.
Rice, malt, some sweetness, glue and starch in aroma.
Flavour is quite bad to be honest. There’s rice, mild bitterness, rubber and starch. This is the first and best North Korean beer I’ve had and I believe it’s also the last one. Not a pleasant one.

(Bottle, 0.64 l, 20121208) Thanks Petri for bringing me this bottle. The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had rubber, rice, starch and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were rice, sweetness, malts and low bitterness. Aftertaste didn’t last long and was sweet. A bad example of beer.
