So, CASS has a new beer available -- Cass Lemon. While the original Cass is probably my Korean beer of choice, most of Cass's other brands have not impressed. Cass Light is as bad as Capri. Cass Red tastes like the water in my sink after I've washed a lot of dishes.
And now there is Cass Lemon. Tonight I tried my first one. The weather has been warm lately, the kind of weather you might like a Corona with a wedge of lemon or lime in it. Good time for a lemon beer, right?
Wrong. It was bad. Bad bad bad. The first thing that came to mind? That scene in ANCHORMAN, when Paul Rudd tried Panther cologne and one woman compared the smell to Bigfoot (or, more specifically, a part of Bigfoot's anatomy). That is what Cass Lemon is like.
To be more specific... it is a light Korean beer, with less flavor than usual and an overwhelming fake lemon flavor infused into it. It tastes like they took Cass Light and mixed it with Lemon Pledge.
Why cannot one Korean beer company make a good beer? Just for variety... Just to see what would happen.
