yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
330ml bottle, 4.5% a/v Very light straw colour with a quick to dissapear white head. Looks blah. The aroma is barely there, a bit of chemical alcohol, a bit of grass and a bit of metal (strange out of a bottle!). The taste is rather fruity, almost like green apples. It is very light and bubbly on the tongue with a mouthfeel nearly like champagne. The aftertaste is mildly chemical/malt, though the rice in the beer makes it very dry. This beer is actually better than I assumed it would be.

Canned. A yellow gold coloured beer with an off-white ring of head. A really corny sweet lager with plenty of chemical flavours and aromas. There are far worse mass marketed pale lagers; this is actually reasonably drinkable.

OOOH. A bit rough on this one. I mean, it is what I expected but it really bites hard on the aftertaste level. I would certainly pass and go Japanese if I had to.

Bif (2158) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Pours a pale yellow with no real head. Has a generic stale beer aroma. Taste was slightly sweet but no real flavor, pretty bland. It had a light body with lots of carbonation. Had with a Korean meal. It makes OB & Cass look pretty good.

phaleslu (9854) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2010
12 oz. can from The Tin Can. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a white head. Notes of sugar, corn, grass. Pretty sweet, actually. Light-bodied, with a watery mouthfeel and higher carbonation. Not a whole lot going on here, but unlike a lot of other Asian pale lagers, theres nothing aggressively skunky going on, either.

jaghana (5833) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 27, 2010
Bottle 33cl. A clear yellow beer with almost no head and heavy carbonation. Aroma is on old paper and very dry at the beginning, the finish is better with hops notes and a bit fruity. Not so nice but very different compared to other lagers, is there rice in it ?

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 Not good. But better than OB and Cass. One positive, no irritating flavors. Serving: Bottle

Almost clear yellow pour with a bubbly white head. Corn and cereal on the flavor. No aroma. Not something I would order again, even in a Korean restaurant.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Bottle at a Lao restaurant. Pours clear straw with a fizzy bright white head. Not much retention or lace. Sugary, grassy nose. Taste is watery, a bit sweet, nothing really there. No terrible adjunct notes. Probably gains clarity and a lighter body from some rice used in the mash. This has Yakima hops? No way. Pretty boring but unoffensive. Definitely inferior to Beerlao.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2010
330 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold (the open mark told me so!) in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear straw with a so-so bright white head. Aroma: Sweet cereal/grain, very slightly fruity, a touch of wet grassy hops. Palate: Medium-ish body, medium carbonation. Flav.: Minerals, cereal/grain, slightly fruity, non-descript malt-adjunct, a wee hint of grassy hops; dry with a slightly mineral cereal/grain, overall watery finish.

Boring, all the way from Korea. Im tempted to add a dollop of Kimchi for flavour.
