There really is nothing like drinking a ice cold lager on a hot day in an Asian country.

This is how I had this lager.
Nothing at all special, but it just tastes perfect in the right environment.

Poured into a pilsner glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a half finger white head that dissipates to a thin film with light lacing. Aroma of lightly grainy biscuit malt, grassy hops and a hint of lemon. Flavor is attenuated biscuit malt with a little husky grain, a hint of caramel, grassy hops. Flavor tuckers out into a bland, grainy and grassy finish. Light to medium bodied with sharp carbonation. If it looks, smells and tastes like a adjunct lager duck, then that what it is. I tend to rate this style higher than the average, mostly because, although I rarely crave one of these, their strength is being mild and inoffensive to the most people, and I find them to be drinkable if unmemorable. This is not one of the better adjunct lagers, and the flavor is simultaneously a little grainy rough and quite muted. This could be partially because, despite the unfortunate "Fresh" in the name, this has probably been sitting around for a long time, both in shipping and distribution. I know I've been watching for an opportunity to buy a single bottle for quite a few months (my favorite beer store got quarts of this; I wisely waited for a 12 oz. single). Bland and a bit a rough, a satisfactory, but forgettable adjunct lager, as so many commercial beers are from Asia. A boring, but painless tick of this brewery.

Cass is typical enjoyable beer that pairs well with Korean food and late night snack occasions in South Korea.

Cass fresh 4.5%

Served in a plastic beaker from a can, 9000 meter above the ground in korean air plane

Crystal clear, yellow and fizzy, foam fine and pretty stable

Pilsner malt sweetness, grainy, some fruity esters as well, banana?

Little grainy sweetness from the malts. Ends really crisp from rice(?) adjuncts. Little metallic. Very faint bitterness 3

Thin, fine refreshing carbonation

Typical asian lager but a little less clean than expected (esters), but that could be blamed on the elevated senses on a flying airplane, drinkable and certainly refreshing. However, barely any hops

Pours almost clear with a faint light yellow hue. Highly carbonated. Nose is of light sulfur and sweet corn almost a bit fruity. Taste is a bit like carbonated water, minimal flavor. What is there is a vegetal corn like taste and a little sweetness. Very light mouthfeel. No hop profile whatsoever but it does have a bite to it from the carbonation. Not a good beer. Not here just to bang on a cheap AAls but really I have had much better AALs.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of strong pale malt, rice, slight hop, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of adjunct. Fits the style of an American Adjunct Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong pale malt, hint of adjunct, rice, slight hop, and a hint of sweet malt. Overall, good appearance and blend, with a decent body.

500ml can from a Tops supermarket in Thailand.

4.50% ABV.

Impressions below are regrettably brief:

Overcarbonated and insipid; the "fizzy yellow" cliche applies. Smooth, wet, sharp, light-bodied.

No hop profile whatsoever.

Your typical bland but drinkable fare. No offensive notes (booze, metal, et al.).

Low C- / BELOW AVERAGE

Had this on my most recent trip to Seoul South Korea. It seems to be the national beer of South Korea and is everywhere. Fizzy, yellow. Yep, tastes like your typical adjunct beer. Doesn't really stand out for me, but is refreshing along with some Korean BBQ. Not bad but not that good either.
