look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: Yellowy gold with a big off-white head. Heaving with small, sparkling bubbles and looks very champagney. Leaves a nice bit of lacing.

S: Peppy kind of yeastiness and notes of dull malt and, er, river-bed silt.

T: In character it’s a German Pilsener lager, albeit a low-end one. It has a soft caramelised malt backbone with some subtle vanilla in the midst and an intermittent citrus finish. You know what, there’s a subtle hint of blackberry in there too. Unfortunately it has a touch of Eurolager dirtiness and corn snacks cheapness. It should be noted that its a terrible palate cleanser and its off flavours really stand out between fuller flavoured beers.

M: The mouthfeel is very soft.

O: Certainly not world class but easily the best thing mass-produced in South Korea. Korean beer ‘pighting!’.

L: straw colored, nice lacing, bubbly
S: plain, slightly unpleasant, sour
T: watered down, too malty and tastes similar to malt liquor, cheap-quality, reminds of urine, subtle fruit notes but lacks flavors and aromas, slightly sour
F: light-bodied, very carbonated,
O: it's okay. recommended to have food (i.e. pizza, tacos, etc) with it than to drink it alone.

Bottle at Kristalbelli, New York, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that left a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet, bready malts are present in the nose. It also seems like there are some notes of adjuncts such as corn.
T: The taste follows the smell, but none of the adjunct aromas that I picked up in the nose are perceptible in the taste. There are some hints of metallic flavors and ginger. Light amounts of grassy hops are also noticeable, but these don't contribute any bitterness and mostly serve to mask any sweetness that you might expect from the malts.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't that bad and doesn't feel that light or watery on the palate. There are also just enough hops to mask any sweetness from the taste.

Small head that settles to rim bubbles. Some streaks for lace. Straw color and clear.

Pale malt aroma along with raw grain. A touch stale, maybe just starting to get skunked.

Very close to a traditional a macro lager. Very high carbonation with a below w average body. A bit sour in the swallow with a short aftertaste.

Look- Straw color, ok head and lacing.
Smell- grassy and sweet but also a bit metallic.
Taste- some of the metallic elements from the aroma, are there, but generally there is a sweet taste and also in the finish. Feels very malt forward with virtually no hop bitterness.
Feel- softly carbonated and light.
This one has its moments. It does not have the adjunct tastes of macro lagers yet it doesn't have the hoppiness of a German Pilsner, which makes me wonder about its classification. Regardless, it is an ok beer that will pair well with Asian food.

Bought a six-pack for $4.99 and Kloud tastes like its about worth that much. To be fair, it tastes slightly skunked, but on the most part Kloud is a somewhat palatable lager, certainly good enough, but don't expected to be amazed.

Had this last night at our local sushi place. Nice clean beer with a slight sweetness in the finish. Nothing spectacular. I actually prefer a dry beer with sushi, but this was not bad. No off flavors or aromas. Curious about the description on the bottle regarding "water free" brewing. Not sure what that is.

Just a standard mass produced Korean beer; pretty much the same as OB, Cass, and Hite. The best thing about this brew is the fluffy white head that lasted longer than I thought it would. Just 'meh'.
