Pours two fingers of head on a clear medium straw colored body. Looks good.
The aroma has a mild lemon note to it. Not much but it's there.
The taste has a metallic pine bitter flavor throughout with a grapefruit finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It's an attempt at getting some flavor in the beers of Korea, but it doesn't work well.

A: Light amber with a nice sustaining head.

S: A pretty good nose of indiscernible fruity hops. Some burned caramel.

T: Bitter like it says on the tin. Quite a bit of cardboard but there's also fudge, lots of artificial solvent-like banana and hints of butterscotch. It's sharp compared to its less bitter counterpart but too bitter to be sessionable. The banana/solvent, while not unpleasant, is totally wrong in an English style bitter. I believe additives are used for flavouring. If it's true then what the fuck!

O: More worthy of critical attention than the Blonde Style but ultimately it's nothing more than a poor Korean immitation beer.

A solid commercial beer. In Korea, there are only cheap swill, mass-market imports, and super pricey craft beers to choose from. Queen's Ale offers a decent middle ground: more expensive than the mass Korean lagers, cheaper than the importer IPAs, and with a taste to match their middle position. This beer has a decent hoppy bitterness when compared with non-craft beers. A little harsher and less refined than the upscale beers, but much better than drinking another bland lager.
