Borresteijn (7484) - Zaandam, - FEB 2, 2013
33cl Bottle at Khan Korean restaurant, as Hite Ice Point. Clear pale golden colour, white head that disappears in an instant. Aroma is sweet, light malty, corn. Flavour is medium sweet, light malty, corn, light floral, very light bitter finish, slightly dry and light grainy. Light-bodied, a bit fizzy. It’s not very good, but not as bad as expected from all the ratings here.

Bottle from Curious food shop in Tesco Petržalka. Clear gold without head, well there was something but immediately disappeared. Aroma is rather nasty, won't describe any more, you don't want to smell it. Taste is watery, corn, very likely rice as well. Meh. Poor Koreans if they have to drink this. Good old euro beers.

Bottle from asia shop in Eschborn, Germany. I don't see any point in having this beer, let alone implorting it to Germany. Almost no taste at all, watery. Not for me.

33cl bottle purchased @ Tang frères. Lager vraiment très fade et plus qu'insipide.

330ml can. Pours a clear and pale yellow gold. Funky notes. Mild sweet malt flavours. Very thin bodied. Moderate to high carbonation. Easy to drink and not unpleasant, but tastes more like water than beer. Not worth drinking.

Thanks to Kraddel. 330 ml. bottle sampled. I saw this one a lot many years ago visiting Korean supermarkets in London, Koreans always talked me out of trying it so I left it at that and they were right, this is awful, surprisingly even somehow. Clear golden, little head. Nose is extremely awful vegetable. Taste is awful paper, corn, hugely vegetable, fizzy awful green vegetable apple. All vegetable too fizzy, no thanks.

Pours clear, very light , wattery blond. Small to no white head. Smell is weak, watery, spoiled malts, mild thin bitterness. Taste is weak, bit bitter, malt and cornsyrup. Easy drinker without too much complexity. Can see this as refreshing... Meh
