Kita (1071) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l, courtesy of Euihwan. Clear straw color with small frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of cereals, herbal hops and vegetables. Taste starts light sweet grainy, follows by grassy acidity and papery notes with plain mouthfeel and very light bitter finish. Light body, watery texture and lively carbonation in palate. With all respect to my Korean friends, thats close to nothing...

Bottle received in trade, labeled as Hite Ice Point Pours a crystal clear medium straw color with a huge bubbly bone white head that quickly recedes to a cap on top. Smells quite grainy with hints of skunk and some faint spicy earthy hop aromas. Not a lot going on in the aroma here. The flavor is very light apple with hints of grain and little to no hop flavor with a light hop bitterness. Light body with a moderate to high level of carbonation. Quite light and watery; Not horrible, but somewhat devoid of much flavor. Drinkable but thats about it.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle@home. Clear, yellow, with a quick to disappear head. Not much in the aroma, perhaps a hint of caramel and grains. Thin as it gets, with plenty of carbonation. Very summerish lager, but I guess it never promised to be anything else. Its pretty much what I expected.

Review: Bottle of Hite Pale Lager 4.5%ABV Hite lager is a nice, pleasant tasting beer from South Korea, thats so good with Korean food. Pours a golden yellow clear colour with a small light head and some lacing. A nice sweet aroma of light malt and grains were found making the smell one of the highlights of this Korean brew. On closer inspection the smell is quite unusual, a strong tinge of a shot, possibly the rice. it is an extremely easy tasting drink: sweet, clear and crisp. Its smoothness making it go down very well. There was a lingering grain sweetness throughout in the beer that stays nice till the end, no bitterness found in this beer. It tasted of a little rice and pale malt, some grains and a light hop flavour. Very refreshing and clean throughout, I enjoyed this beer. This beer is pleasant. and perfect for the light beer drinker. Definitely a top class session beer, perfect for a night out with friends to a restaurant, say perhaps a Korean restaurant! Would work very well with some light food.

330ml bottle (Korean restaurant, Holborn) - Little flavour, little palate and litre aroma, quite possibly very little to review.

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. No head, oddly sweet and highly carbonated. A slightly strange experience all told. Box ticked for unusual choice in Newcastle but nothing else in it's favour

Flaske 0,33l fra Kilpishalli. Merket Ice Point. Gyldengul. Bra skum som daler raskt. Aroma av st malt. Mye kullsyre p glassveggen. Smaken har et klart papp-preg. Lite positivt si. Vasken fikk brorparten.
