Moravius (1131) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2016
Flasche („hite Pale Lager“, 4,3 %, 640 ml) aus einem Supermarkt in Busan. - Goldgelb, blank. - In der Nase recht chemische Malzsüße und Anklänge an Konservengemüse. - Antrunk mild und matt malzsüßlich mit zartem Süßsauer und einem Anklang an Gemüsekonserven. Hopfen ist praktisch nicht zu erschmecken, wodurch das Bier stumpf und fade wirkt. Gut rezent, schlank bis wäßrig. Im Abgang bis auf nachhallende künstliche Süße (Süßstoff) nur noch Leere. Widerlich fader, ganz schwach fauliger Nachtrunk, der um so ekliger wird, je länger man nicht weitertrinkt. - Billig gemacht (mit Zusatz u.a. von Stärke), fade und mit üblen Fehlaromen: dieses Bier, eins der großen Supermarktbiere Südkoreas, ist tatsächlich so schlecht wie sein Ruf. Ab damit ins Klo - und: nie wieder Hite!

AlfredoGarcia (263) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 26, 2016
330 ml bottle. Bought in a Jumbo supermarket in Santiago. Clear golden color low white head. Refreshing smell of grass; lager, quoi. Hoppy taste, way more than the usual lager. Of course in not an IPA, but it do taste like beer; sadly is excesibly waterish. Aftertaste metallic.

Capa (2768) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2016
So, my buddy drags me into this absolute garbage bar in Busan. Dirty, sticky, loud pop-rap, the works. Ok. There are two beers at the bar, Budweiser and Hite. I’m thinking, at least I can get a tick, and I order the Hite. In hindsight, I should’ve ordered the fucking Budweiser.

DylansDad (590) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 5, 2016
Typical generic lager aroma of grainy malt and very faint hops. Apple juice shows as it warms. Very watery with very light generic lager flavours, some lemon and apple, grass, very light bitterness and light spice. Drinkable when cold.

jbruner (4116) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Pours a clear golden yellow from the can with bubbly white head that dissipates quickly to leave little lace. Aroma and taste of pale lager, corn sweetness, light crisp yeast, meh. Carbonation a bit weak, unexciting.

A very fresh Korean lager. Great stuff, a nice taste that balances between sweet and bitter.

EugeneStraver (166) - Nootdorp, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2015
HOME (20151226): 33 cl brown bottle; BB 19.10.2015. On the label the beer is named: Hite Ice Point. A clear yellow beer with a good white-colored head. The smell is somewhat malty (wheat-like) and slightly hoppy. Taste is slightly sweet with a reasonable body and hardly no hopbitter. Drinkable but not so nice.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle in LA. Like you mixed a macrolager with soda water - fizzy pale beer soda. Terrible. Good for nothing other than washing down korean food. This is amongst the worst of the macro lagers.

gegwilson (3284) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle in a Korean restauraunt in York. Pours blond with a quickly fading white head. Grainy citrus aroma. Light spice, citrus and grain empty flavour. Adding an ’s’ to the start of this beer would be a fair deScription. Pretty aweful, but at least South Korea is ticked off.
