1.83/5  rDev -25.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

330 ml thick brown bottle with no freshness date.

Appearance: After a quick foaming after a hard pour the lace drops to a thin whispy state with very little stickage and poor retention overall. Clarity is perfect with a crystal clear yellow colour.

Smell: Sweet with a semi-harsh cereal adjunct aroma, smells gritty with some cooked veggies on the side.

Taste: Weak malt profile, more of a grain bite and slightly harsh adjunct astringency. Hops have some bitterness that intensifies the harshness, no noticeable hop flavour at all. Finishes with that same astringent bite, not very clean at all.

Mouthfeel: Thin body with an easy crispness from the carbonation, spritzy in a way.

Drinkability & Note: Hard to swallow a whole bottle of this stuff without wincing, not recommended at all … the only thing I got out of this was getting to try a beer from S. Korea, there are many other Asia breweries that push out better lagers than this. (959 characters)

2.92/5  rDev +18.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Crystal clear, very light straw gold with a big foamy white head that holds OK at first - buoyed by a good level of carbonation - but soon drops to nothing! The aroma is softly sweet malt with a light fruitiness of apples and a background hoppiness. Light bodied with a crisp carbonation and somewhat watery mouthfeel. The flavor is a very slightly fruity and grainy malt - fairly dry with some hop bitterness. Not much of a finish - crisp and clean. And, I could be wrong about this, but the alcohol seems a bit noticeable which is very odd for a beer that only clocks in at 4.5%. Of course, a high fermentation temperature might also explain the fruitiness. Regardless, a very basic lager that offers little character. Not worth bothering. (741 characters)

3.4/5  rDev +37.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a bright shiny yellow / golden color, with a white head that dies very fast. On the nose is a slight aroma of grain, the same on the palate grain, not to hoppy, slightly watery. Mouth feel is fairly smooth. Ends with a crisp clean finish. Pretty basic lager, but enjoyable none-the-less. All though I was not eating any spicy or oriental food, I am assuming this would be an OK beer to go along with that sort of dish. (424 characters)

A bright yellow beer w/ a big bubbled foam head and slight stick. Grainy nose, w/ a grainy flavour/feel. Slight esters. Crisp & dry. Adjuncts are evident by a cooked veggie flavour. Thin bitterness which is rindy/salty/minerally. Thin sweetness and a grain dry finish.

This beer paired very nicely with my spicy korean chicken dish at lunch. Nice palate opener and cleanser. (377 characters)
