This is becoming my go-to beer in Korea. It is surprisingly easy to find and in stock at most bars.

Appearance- Hazy pale yellow with a thin white head

Smells- Yeast and spice

Tastes- Some pleasant fruit flavor with spicy notes. A little bit of citrus.

Mouthfeel- Medium body and smooth. Very refreshing

Overall- A decent beer especially in the summer.
