Cass Fresh – Oriental Brewing (Anheuser-Busch InBev owned), 4.5% ABV, 640ml, (Seoul, Korea)


  • Style: Pale Lager
  • Taste: Crisp bite short length red apple light barley malt
  • Where I got it : Legacy Liquor
  • How much: $5 (after 10% off) – 640ml., December 2012
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: no, but a decent meal beer

Visual: Pours ultra clear golden yellow with a decent creamy dissipating head, a thin half layer of retention, a few clusters of steady streams.

Nose: filtered apple juice, bready-grainy sweet barley malt. (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: very crisp bite, tingly entry

Mid-palate: sparkling-fizzy, (lvl-3)-sweetness, (MAIN) red apple juice,  light liquid barley malt

Finish: burpy, off-dry light grainy barley malt, super subtle short-lived hops, some palate roughness as it warms.

Summary: Must drink extremely chilled. Initial sips are very refreshing but the enjoyability decreases exponentially as it warms and loses carbonation. Thin bodied and short length of flavour.
