Tasting Notes:
Brewed in Korea and sold in Japan by grocery chain Valor as their “in-house” value brew, Kaihai sells for well below what is similarly offered in Japan in the third-tier category. On your first gulp you’ll notice that the bubbles disperse on the back of the throat, giving a smoother fuller mouth-feel up front. The overall flavor is not bad. There is some sweetness and hints of corn in the mix. However, after the first gulp, there was an unpleasant aftertaste I could not put my finger on. For the price, Kaihai Premium is OK, but you’ll want to hit up the other labels if you’ve got the budget.
