CANNOT TASTE WORSE. Truly a mind-numbingly bad "beer" (actually insulting to the word beer). Imaging old Coors, left out in the sun, cut with cheap store-brand soda, then recarbonated. Oh, and add some chemicals designed to make you ill. There you go! Like so many things on this beautiful island, this beer got "Guamed". The billboards don't get spell checked (forget grammar), the commercials are made by the high school film class...it's all just "good enough"...could be great but it's easier to be lazy. For the record, my version had a slightly different label and was brewed by Solon brewing in WI. Same crap.

***NOTE*** This can was purchased in Guam, under the distribution co. called "Mid Pacific Distributions" But the can clearly states it's a product of Korea and Oriental Brewing.

A - No head at all. And only a few very tiny bubbles. Thin apple juice color. Clear like sprite.

S - Adjunct malt smells. Sugar and corn starch.

T - Foul. Astringent. Like grape soda vinegar and mouth wash. Can't rate lower than a 1.

M - Fizzy. Alka-seltzer mixed with corn syrup. Unpleasant.

D - This beer ranks up there with the likes of The Beast Ice and Busch-Dry. I'm impressed.
