South Korea does not proclaim to be a beer Mecca, neither does it harbour many wine enthusiasts (the sweeter the better). Likewise, coffee is an unpretentious beverage only to be enjoyed with a mountain of sugar. Simply, they do not fully understand the westerner's abstract pursuit of connoisseurship. God knows I've tried to enlighten my Korean friends but their hastiness to alter (butcher) western culinary marvels and their propensity to completely misinterpret western sensibilities only makes them more loveable. It must be said that Korean cuisine is quite special and soju gets you trollied for next to nothing. Anyway, Cass Fresh is possibly the best of a bad bunch so I'll try not to be too harsh with it.
S: Crickey! Swirling it around I get a strong whiff of pond silt.
T: Soft bitterness on back of the tongue. Metallicy malt but not harsh. Fizzy. Kind of clean.
O: Very similar to Bud. Easy to drink.

Poured from a large bottle into a small Hite drinking glass in a 'beef and leaf' joint in Itaewon-dong, Seoul, ROK. (My second was on the KAL flight from Incheon to Dulles.)
A: Pale clear yellow body, some visible carbonation. Small white head that fades fast.
S: Grainy malt with some hops. It smells like a lager.
T: Typically lager, but not as plain as an American lager. Hints of something floral. Grainy pale malt comes through a little, but not strong. Clean, but bland tasting. Slightly sweet aftertaste.
M: Watery and thin. Clean feel on the palate.
O: So it's made with rice, guess what...Korea is covered in the stuff, its the staple grain. That said, compared to the beers available worldwide, this is typical for a local staple beer in many countries. It wasn't bad, and frankly the flavor went well with the Korean BBQ, and I'd say was nearly perfect. Would I buy it here in the US? Nope. Would I drink it regular if I was in the ROK? Absolutely...if I had some 'beef and leaf' to eat with it.

Pours one finger of head on a clear light gold colored body. Low head retention.
The aroma is metallic, adjunct grain and lemon. Not good.
The taste is boldly metallic and watery.
The texture is quite fizzy with a thin and crisp body.
This beer is completely not enjoyable.
