2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
2011-02-12. Crisp pale yellow with a foamy white head that fades slowly. Mild aroma of cereally grains. Flavour starts of rather pleasantly with a crisp bitterness, light grassy touches but the middle and finish is more of the cereal grains from the aroma. Bit of a cardboard grain character in the background that I do not believe is oxidation, but could be. Average to light bodied palate. A fairly inoffensive macro lager while well chilled. I did not wait for it to warm up to see how it changes, I suspect wisely so. Bottle from LCBO

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a bottle a "Korea House" restaurant in Kearny Mesa, San Diego. The pour looks like budweiser, the smell is budweiser, the appearance is budweiser and the taste is just slightly better than budweiser, but we have to finish the bottle since it was given to us for free for Dasilky1s birthday dinner.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
HITE PITCHER!!!! If you get this in the giant HITE PITCHER verions its totally worth it. it’s like, 64 oz or something, and its giant and ridiculous looking. honestly, HITE PITCHER should be the photo hite beer, because nobody I know has ever drank hite except from the giant pitcher. this beer is great for hot days when you plan on drinking a lot of beer over a sustained period of time. its not great if you’re trying to get sloshed up right quick but i can definitely imagine drinking it during a dick-about soccer match or perhaps while hanging out next to the river or a slip n’ slide. when it comes down to it though, you only drink HITE because you want people to SEE YOU DRINKING HITE PITCHER. duh. this is easiest to find at asian supermarkets.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Had to purchase a 6-pack at the LCBO, so had some at the band jam and some at home, straight from the bottle. This was actually quite surprisingly good and refreshing for a swill. Says to open when the mark of an opener turns blue (on the front label), to have optimal tasting temperature. Now, the sixth one, mark is blue. Pours a light yellow colour with a big white head that is creamy and foamy. Medium-sized bubbles all over the glass, with decent retention and some wavy lacing. Great fresh malt nose at first, but then, turns into an adjunct scent. Refreshing mouthfeel that is crisp with a short finish. Taste of rice (and maybe a little corn) with a little bitterness of grassy hop in the middle. Nothing bad here, just a regular rice swill, and another country tried.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear yellow gold with moderate-sized white head that steadily recedes to a thin white cap. Aroma is fairly mild but dominated by lemon with some grains. Taste is somewhat sweet with grains and lemon. Only a hint of hops. Fairly light body. Better than a typical macro European pale lager, but that’s not saying a lot.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The best of the Korean beers, again over hopped and a potent brew, but this beer is easier on the palate, its toasted flavour and cleaner water gives it a more satisfactory taste. Points also for its cheap cost (1500 won for a 26 oz bottle) and the fact you get it chilled at virtually any corner store in far off places like Yeongju and Iksan

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bomber served in a lager glass. Pours very pale straw with a medium sized white head. Decent retention, minimal lace. Nose is rice, hay, and faint pepper. Not skunky at all which is good. Flavor is mostly non-existent, but slightly sweet. Very light body, fizzy carbonation, watery texture, and an ultra light hop presence on the finish. Tastes like beer flavored water. True.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Bright light-yellow appearance; ephemeral head. Invigorating aroma of fresh-cut grass brings a touch of summertime to these dour Canadian winter days. Refreshing palate and standard malt/hop body pleases, though this is admittedly just your standard world lager. Meets expectations... nothing more, nothing less.
