Best by 11/29/12.

Yellow straw color with a quick to fizzle head. Big bubbles slowly jump to the surface in the glass. 2.0

Sweet vegetal aroma, grassy hop bitterness, and perhaps rice malts. 3.5

Semi-sweet malts with herbal/vegetal muted hops. Tinny finish. Touch of corn and artificial white grape Gummi-Saver. 3.0

Very light and quenching with a soda-like carbonation. 2.5

Surprisingly pleasant lager. Washes down my hoedubbap and kimchi rather well. 3.5

A 640ml green glass bottle with a BB of Nov 2012. ABV is stated as 4.7%. The label mentions the use of rice in the brewing process.

Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear pale straw colour with medium carbonation. Forms a small head of white foam that lasts for a minute or so before dissipating. Aroma of light malt with mild stewed hops and a faint hint of overcooked veg. Pretty clean.

Tastes of light malt with a mild finish. Faint notes of stewed hops and overdone veg. A subtle dry bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is light, crisp and tingly, but watery. Not much aftertaste - perhaps a hint of stewed hops.

A passable lager, but nothing special. Perhaps it stands out well in China. At least the taste is clean, if uninspiring. OK if there's nothing else going, but no need to seek it out.
