Nose
Hoppy, floral and welcoming. It smells crisp and clean.
Palate
Very thin but nicely balancing fruity hops and delicate malt. On the sweet side of bittersweet, with hints of pineapple.
Finish
An empty swallow. The finish that follows is bittersweet and slow to build. It's mildly hoppy but never really amounts to much.
Comment
A clean and refreshing beer from Korea, flavoured by Cascade hops. It's beautifully balanced, with no faults, but absolutely no depth either. An all-malt brew, and it shows. On the whole, a really well-made beer, but don't expect fireworks.
