look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2

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?

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.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.

The appearance is is a tawny straw, fizzy, and little to no head. the smell is horrendous. Rice and sweet grains, metal, and dirty moldy water. the taste is watery with rice, some dirty water, and sokething trying to pose as a hop. mouthfeel is thin, airy, and overly carbonated. Overall avoid this beer. I am stationed in Korea and this is a very common beer. o hate bashing a beer but this is truly aweful.

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.
