Smooth, low on flavor but smooth. A good example of an AAL.

A-Clear gold, thin head

Smell- Gross. I can't put my finger on it, it just smells funky and gross.

Taste- Almost as bad as the smell, metallic and bitter with an awful after taste.

MF- Not that bad actually. Crisp.

Overall- I was expecting bad and was still disappointed. Worst beer I have had in Korea and that is saying a lot.

Pours a typical golden amber with thin head. Not much aroma. Initial taste is very sweet and almost maple like. Not a lot of body or flavor. Subsequent sips yield nothing. Almost has a corn candy kind of aroma and taste. Thin and not a lot of substance. I guess if you eat a lot of spicy Korean food, you would not even tell the difference or care how the beer tastes.

Pours a finger and half of head on a clear golden colored body.
The aroma is a faint candy lemon smell.
The taste is metallic with mild bitterness. Not great.
The texture is quite fizzy, too much with a crisp body.
Don't smell, taste or feel good. What else is there to say?

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass. The can says this is made from all-malt, so perhaps it should fall into the pale lager category, rather than adjunct lager?

Appearance: golden hue with a haze-free body and a strong effervescence. Head is a finger of quickly-subsiding white foam. Not bad, for the style.

Smell: sweet with a definite corn pops character thrown in the mix. The can says all-malt, but it does indeed smell quite adjunct-y. Not great, but relatively free of off-putting aromas.

Taste: like the aroma, it's quite sweet with a hint of corn, but really it's not too bad. Nothing I would go out of my way to get, but as the style goes, there's at least a little flavor here. One unfortunate area is hops, though -- they are not at all distinguishable. Points lost for that.

Mouthfeel: light body but a big carbonation with a good creaminess for the style.

Overall: quite drinkable, although it's not an inspirational beer by any means. Still, for an adjunct lager in a can, you can do a lot worse.
