I was at a local Korean grocery today checking out some of the exotics, and I couldn't resist trying a Korean beer. Knowing how lousy some import adjucts can be, I had fairly low expectations but still wanted to give her a try.
Appearance isn't bad; bright golden color below a fingers worth of foamy head (no lacing to speak of).
Smell has a faint touch of buttery malt. A little cooked vegetable aroma hides among some grassy grain smells.
Taste is very mild, very light. A little bit of bite from grains, a little bit of sweetness, some "salty" bitter finish, but very light all told. Nothing about it tastes real bad, its just real boring.
High carbonation makes for a crisp mouthfeel. Super light body makes for a nice dry finish.
Light in flavor and light in weight makes for easy drinking as a bit of liquid refreshment to accompany some salty greasy food or to cool off on a summer day. It is what it is.

This was the "Go-To" beveage in downtown Songtan, Korea outside the gates of Osan AB! Of course, it could be the infamous suspect Korean alcohol by volume control that made them work, especally if you got ahold of the fabled "magic" bottle! If you did luck out, this was the greatest beverage ever made...ice cold, this brew was the stuff legends were made of! On the flipside, I suffered through several bottles and only received a headache for my troubles! Only found it once stateside and their export version wasn't bad, bottom line, I wouldn't turn one down should I ever find another, if that means anything!
