Flat and chemical. I have tried it on tap, in a can, a plastic bottle they call a pitcher, and a bottle...I have even drank this out of a 2 inch paper cup! It's not good...
There is a reason this beer is widely unavailable in America (accept large cities with a lot of Koreans), it is because it is terrible! I lived in Korea for 3 years and I would go out of my way to avoid this. Lucky for me they imported MGD and Budweiser (which I never drink in the States). MGD was smooth and refreshing compared to this beer. Korea does not have a strong beer culture like western countries, so they don't have a lot of good beers available. When they do, they are quite expensive. This beer--along with Hite--are terrible and should be avoided at all costs. If you visit Korea for vacation, sure, try them for the novelty. But, if you have to live there, good luck finding inexpensive good beers.

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.
