1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Poured with a nice head and it featured a good colour, better than most swills. Then it got ugly. The aroma was almost perfume-like and not in a good way, and the taste was very peculiar, reminiscent of the "smell" and somewhat unpleasant I would NOT drink this again.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. BB 10.11.09
Ok so there’s a bit of a story behind this, because as it stands the beer in front of me is NOT Hite Beer, rather a Cleanskin beer brewed by Hite Beer and imported into Australia. Unfortunately information on the cleanskin beer itself is hard to come by, but my assumption is this is the beer.
Very clear yellow gold body, fast dying bright white foam.
Sweetish cereal malt aroma, grain and rice, touch of honey with some detectable floral hops and background of cardboard skunk.
Flabby sort of texture, lean body, carbonation is fizzy and towards the light side, possibly contributing to the oilness of the palate.
Corny cereal malts, good hit of DMS in there i’m pretty sure, honey sweetness takes away most of the subtle hop flavour and bitterness.
Nothing special, though at the price they’re flogging this stuff at the local bottle ’o, I wouldn’t be complaining.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Clear yellow with slight chill haze, nonstop carbonation bubbles racing to the top. Pours with a big frothy white head that dissipates almost instantly. Surprising depth to the aroma, slightly tart grain and corn with a mild spicy hop presence. The flavor is enjoyable for the style. Full-bodied with some grain presence and only mild adjunct presence. Finishes dry with an aftertaste of light malt.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pale yellow w/ a good head. Smells of zesty lemon citrus. Light, clean, and crisp w/ a zesty lemon rind backbone. The finish is bittered superbly inticing one to sip on. No off flavors. Excellent session beer. Best one I’ve had in a while.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Why? I should end it right there, really. Its all lacing! The only quality worth mentioning. Sour bitterness is the only flavour. Fizzy mouthfeel. Light straw colour. Lots of head, only cause I basically smashed the beer on the counter and pushed whatever beer didn’t have glass shards in it into a wooden bowl for consumption purposes. Near smellless (is that a word?). Smells possibly like my toilet, but just a faint whiff. I’ve tasted alot worse beers, but this is like drinking nothing at all and not enjoying even that. I’ve said enough. A shorter more adequate review of Hite could’ve read the following: Wicked awsome metallic green sparkly beer cap - the same colour as the Probe Hotwheels car I had when I was young. One of the best coloured caps I’ve ever seen. Beer is shit.
