The best of the Korean beers, again over hopped and a potent brew, but this beer is easier on the palate, its toasted flavour and cleaner water gives it a more satisfactory taste. Points also for its cheap cost (1500 won for a 26 oz bottle) and the fact you get it chilled at virtually any corner store in far off places like Yeongju and Iksan

Beer with a malty and grainy aroma and a light bitter taste. Fizzy carbonation and very light body, which works for this beer. I’m not sensing any of the supposed overwhelming corn and vegetable taste this beer is apparently supposed to have, according to some raters. Not bad at all.

Aromat:a wlasciwie brak aromatu, po otwarciu butelki i dluzszym wachaniu, moze jakis zapach slodów mozna wychwycic. Ze szkla do slodu dochodzi moze troche owoców. Wyglad: praktycznie przezroczyste, jasnoslomkowe, blade, piana jest wysoka, biala, sredniopecherzykowa z duzymi bablami. Smak: woda, odrobina kukurydzy i jakichs jasnych slodkawych owoców, lekka cierpkosc winogronowa, goryczki brak, jakiegokolwiek smaku tez. Cos jak seks w kajaku, fuckin close to water :). Beznadzieja. Jedyny plus ze nie jest popsute i z grubsza wyglada jak jakies piwo-cienkusz. Daje troche winogronami, nie wiem czy tak mialo to byc, czy zaczelo kisnac. 2/3/1/1/2

Clear orange beer, standard carbonation, white head, aroma rather good, several floral notes, in palate light body, bit watery with some hop notes and and overall sweet flavour. Slight bitterness in the aftertaste and that’s all.

Bottle. Clear and fresh but tastes so bad. It ends with medium bitterness and light palate.

Aluminum can from GO: Light gold with fizzy head. Aroma smells of rice and cereals. Flavor is bland and has minor sweet malt and then finishes dry but easy on the palate without much harshness.

Bottle in a Korean restaurant in the City. An overwhelming flavour of corn to this beer, with no hops and, if I think hard, the faint echo of malt. It’s not what I call beer and its not something that gave me any pleasure in drinking. Even mixing it with soju in the Korean way to make bombs just acted to water it down further and did nothing to improve the experience. My colleague pointed out that all Korean beers taste like this, which I find quite disturbing.

Mohlo by to být i daleko horší. Velmi světlá průhledná barva, sladová chuť... Takové typické asijské pivko.

33cl bottle at home. Pours a clear yellow colour with a medium white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, caramel, malt, grain. Taste is sweet, light bitter with a soft dry finish. Notes of grain, malt, yeast, caramel. Testure is sticky, light bodied with medi carbonation

Nice sweet taste, a bit like San Benedetto Sparkling water with no Bitterness. Its aroma is not very strong, it has a very subtle taste, I would consider this as a great starter beer for someone who personally would like to get into beer tasting but does’nt want to drink the more full bodied brews yet due to bitterness. Nicely gassy and fun to drink even at room temperature. A new weekday staple for me, well done!

Aroma: Rice and fruity sweetness. Flavour: Little fruity sweetness and not much else. A watery mouthfeel and aftertaste is lacking. Colour: Pale yellow with a white head.
