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!

Had a bottle of this at a Korean restaurant in Westboro, MA. I think my first beer from Korea.

Super light clear color, light bubbled head that disappears instantly.

Nose some cheap macro like lager but fairly crisp pilsner straw, bit of a corn or rice like weird substitute sugar flavor, no skunk or very unhappy lager though.

Taste light crisp but full flavor, light straw and hay, some light corn like cheap macro flavors but barely, light grassy hops and hint of bitterness, just a touch of a metallic twang. Finish is crisp dry but light icky bitterness that doesn't fade easily.

Mouth is lighter decent carb.

Overall not bad for an Asian pilsner. I wasn't expecting much, but it wasn't that bad. No skunk, very little metallic bad yeast flavor, light crisp and very drinkable.
