A: Pours a dilute urinal yellow with under a single finger of loosely packed soapy head. This sticks to the sides as it slides down; restated: the head goes down. Little to no lacing this is not a cabaret show. I can see my fingerprint through this beer. To piss standards, this is excellent, to beer a 4. (4) S: Initially, when I cracked the bottle and took a whiff - Pepe, but this dies off while sitting. Now that the beer has been given the opportunity to decant a bit, letís take another swing through the muffler. Light grains and noble hops. The beer has a small mineral quality combined with the markings of a walk through my local English garden- plenty of floral characteristics. Slightest hint of butterscotch. Thinking Belgian blonde. (4) T: Light and effervescent in the mouth. Lemon hints, grain, the most distanced light hop dance. Some hints of corn as well. No evident corn. The slightest coriander/yeast flavor to me. (3.5) M: Light with spritely carbonation. Very white wine finish - dry, but not so dry. (3.5) O: Still thinking Belgian blonde. I wish it were 85F and sunny out rather than the middle of the night. This beer is easy to drink and good bordering on great. Would drink again in a heartbeat. (3.5) Guess: again, Belgian blonde, Achel....for the win!! Reveal: Hite cool & Fresh The reaction: well, I now I donít want to post this. Itís made in Korea. Has a BA rating of D+ It has an Ďindicatorí for when itís cold enough...Iím at a loss for words...Fuck it, Iím drinking this with pride. I have two friends that live in Korea to teach English, and Iím cheersing to them. To the crowd, youíre welcome to tell me Iím obviously a noob at tasting. Serving type: bottle 05-29-2011

Can, called Hite Ice. Simple yellow beer. Not much to add here. The Korean short rib and pork belly tacos were good though

Shared a 33cl from a local Asian shop. Pours a clear straw yellow colour with almost no head. Not much of an aroma and a quite watery taste. But not so bad and quite drinkable on a summer day.

Tastes like a bud heavy to me. Crisp and clean but a cheap malty cornwater type flavor. HITE

Erzengel (1901) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2013
33cl, rated as "Hite Ice Point". Pale golden in colour, nice white head. Grainy-strange nose. The beer starts watery, very watery. Nearly no taste. Only a bit sweet in the aftertaste - but this could also be due to the colour added to the water. The aftertaste is slightly sweetish water - probably 10% Beer, 90% sparkling waterÖ.
--> like water very easy to drink Flavour = 0, and I like water better - it doesnít have that slightly sweetish note that reminds me that I wanted to open a bottle of beerÖ
--> 1/13/1/1
