The Taste is so much better than its cloudy appearance. Top of its class. So glad it is year round.

One of my favorite White Ale's. Cloudy look with a great taste. My only issue is that there is barely any head on the beer, which makes it look a little flat when poured.

Tried the original whereas there is a locally made version which is a very good reproduction; but for same price as was when imported, I don't think so. When in Korea, you drink this because either there is no better option or you just don't know the taste of the real deal.
