Flat and chemical. I have tried it on tap, in a can, a plastic bottle they call a pitcher, and a bottle...I have even drank this out of a 2 inch paper cup! It's not good...

There is a reason this beer is widely unavailable in America (accept large cities with a lot of Koreans), it is because it is terrible! I lived in Korea for 3 years and I would go out of my way to avoid this. Lucky for me they imported MGD and Budweiser (which I never drink in the States). MGD was smooth and refreshing compared to this beer. Korea does not have a strong beer culture like western countries, so they don't have a lot of good beers available. When they do, they are quite expensive. This beer--along with Hite--are terrible and should be avoided at all costs. If you visit Korea for vacation, sure, try them for the novelty. But, if you have to live there, good luck finding inexpensive good beers.

Only drink this if you are in Korea and the girl you are with wants beer and there are no other options.

smell is weak, grain, some corn.

taste is water, weak grain, somewhat sweet, end is awfull.

overall this is one of the worst beers, had it at O'Kims in Busan, South Korea.

No taste at all, fizzy, labelled as 4.5% alcohol, so I guess it has a kick after a few. But after one, I just wanted a beer with some taste, glad I only bought a 6-pack!

12oz bottle at Blue Bella Korean restaurant (while waiting for a table @ Gu with Garlic). Clear dull pale straw. Metalic hop and sweet malt nose. Taste is sweet corn, metalic hops. Pretty terrible.

Pours a pale golden colour with white fizzy head that sinks dramatically and noisily. Lots of interesting carbonation in the brew; smaller, slower bubbles through the middle and larger, quickly gushing ones up the side. Because of perspective it looks like I'm going past on a train. I'm glad I'm intrigued by this visual effect, because otherwise there's nothing even remotely interesting about this.

Nose is fairly pungent with a sticky rice aroma and a hint of buttery malt, slight grassy edge from the hops, weak and takes on a bit of the carbonation smell as well. Not very effective, pretty much a nothing nose.

Taste is...well, poor. Horrible sticky sweetness with a rice grain lightness, a raw sugar kind of flavour and a hint of diacetyl. Bread yeast character hiding underneath as well gives this a real chunky kind of sweetness which lingers unwelcomely, although thankfully not for that long. While the flavour as a whole is insipid and weak, palate is short with no finish at all - it's clean though I guess, which is a blessing.

Mouthfeel is such a letdown after that interesting bubbling. Thin and flat, totally uninspiring. This is a beer best enjoyed by proxy: give it to someone else and laugh at them.

Yet another oriental beer from the beverage Warehouse.

Pours an ultra clear yellow beer with a snow-white head.

Smell is almost nonexistent, just some cooked vegetables and a faint alcohol scent, that is all.

Taste is not much, a bit of sweetness and a little herbal hop. The flavor is very much like a Michelob Ultra.

Mouthfeel is water.

This isn't disgusting but it is like drinking carbonated water and is a kissing cousin to the next closest water like beer I know of the dreaded Michelob Ultra.

AVOID THIS!
