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.

Good color and an easy pour with not a lot of foam. Overall, good taste but, it needs to be really cold for me to enjoy.
