bluejacket74's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20

12 ounce bottle, bottled on 18 Jan 2012, the bottle says freshest taste within 180 days so I think I’m still good there. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear gold color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing is average. Aroma is sweet malt and corn, and not much else. Taste is the same as the aroma. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it is light and goes down easy. For the style of beer it is, it’s not too bad. Worth a try if you can pick up a single bottle somewhere.

C. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Good amount of flavor for a pale lager, but not good flavor

Farklı koku. Asitliği biraz var ama alkol ve buğday tadı çok az alınıyor. Baltika 7'ye benziyor.

Smover sweet typical Asian lager. Good carbonation but otherwise typical of the style.

Typowy przedstawiciel koncernowego lagera. Ładnie się prezentuje, złoty kolor, przezroczyste, piana biała dość szybko znika. Aromat słaby słodowy, podobnie w smaku, nie czuć chmielu, brak goryczki, nijaki. Dobry do gaszenia pragnienia

Can. Here's to champagne, the drink divine, That makes us forget our troubles; It's made of a dollar's worth of wine And three dollars' worth of bubbles.

500ml bottle:In aBlue Moon half pint : A good badly-made Asian lager . This would lift with karaoke or after Kung Fu fighting . You can taste Mr Miyagi on the crisp finish .

Tide (4372) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2017
Can from supermarket in Seoul. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, toast, malts and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, toast, malts and grass. Basic bulk lager.
