From a can purchased in Seoul. Golden color with white head. Sweet grain smell. Light body. Tastes like it smells, sweet grain with some corn and earthiness. Below average, but drinkable enough. Makes me think the other reviews are a freshness issue.

I got Max at the Korean Air lounge in the Incheon International Airport.

It was from a machine where you place the glass and it tilts and pours for you. The color was a urine-yellow, and the head almost felt coarse. The whole time I was drinking Max, I felt like I was drinking metal. There was an overarching metallic smell and flavor that took away everything else from a forgettable experience.

11.13(?)oz bottle purchased at the north Spokane Total Wine for a price I forget. I purchased this solely as a ticker beer, as I'd never had a Korean beer before. I didn't notice the "04032013" stamp until today, so this beer is definitely past it's prime (and once again, way to go re: freshness, Total Wine).

Poured into a Jever Pilsener glass, this was a chill-hazed, slightly amberish golden color, with a miniscule white head that receeded to a thin collar in seconds. Despite the lack of head there's lots and lots of bubbles arcing skyward. No lace at all.

Big, crude grainy aroma and hints of white wine, so 50% what I expected and 50% WTF.

Grainy malts with a side of diacetyl. Yum...

Light bodied, but not as light as it should be. Lousily low level of carbonation.

Pretty awful, in part due to age, no doubt, but I don't think there was much chance of anything commendable even if fresh. Oh, well, I'm a little closer to my dorky goal of having at least one beer from every brewing country on Earth.

Smooth, low on flavor but smooth. A good example of an AAL.
