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.).

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.

Bottle at Kristalbelli, New York, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving only a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of adjunct malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but has slightly stronger flavors. Only faint amounts of sweetness are present. Neither hop flavors nor associated bitterness are noticeable.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and doesn't have any "off" or "skunked" flavors. It was a pretty good accompaniment to some kimchi.

Serving type: bottle

Poured from 640ml bottle into pint glass. Best by 12/14/15. Cutting it close! Today is 12/8/15. I have very low expectations

L: pale yellow in color, crystal clear with a bone-white head that slowly settles into a thin lacing. A nice looking lager

S: herbal, grassy hop aroma with a hint of skunkiness. Hint of sweet malt. Interesting, I was expecting a bland aroma, this had a bit more to it than your standard of the style. Nice

T: a bit of sweet corn malt, some rice, quickly followed by hints of herbal hop bitterness. Finishes extremely dry. Pleasantly dry, with no after taste. Watery yet refreshing. Incredibly smooth flavor from start to finish. Reminds me of a hopped up Coors light. Keeping the style in mind, you could do much worse.

F: very crisp mouthfeel. Well done

O: an excellent Asian Adjunct Lager. Better than most of its counterparts. It's unfortunate this beer is getting slammed because many reviewers here tend to compare this to other beers that aren't even in the same category. Yes, this beer may be a 2/5 compared to a Ballast Point, but compared to others of this style it's easily a 4/5. Reviewing against style guidelines is a waste of time. This is a good adjunct lager, don't let the other reviewers tel you otherwise
