1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
The smell when I opened the bottle made me recoil. I almost poured it right there. Once the smell wafted away, I was able to drink it. To my surprise it was not bad, it just wasn’t. Slightly smooth mouthfeel, but no real noticable tate, just a touch of malt in the aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2011 11.13oz bottle. Bought this beer after seeing it in the movie "The Host." It is advertised as being made from fresh spring water - and it tastes pretty much like water. "Like having sex on a canoe...its f*cking close to water", thoroughly enjoyable, easy to drink, nice taste, underrated (better than most mainstream american pale lagers). The temperature gauge on the side of the bottle informs you on the perfect time to consume your beverage...money. Thanks Korea, you rock!

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottled. Pale yellow colour, no head. Aroma is weak cooked rice, almost non-existant. Flavour is rice and grain. An extremely boring product....

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured a really pale yellow color, lots and lots of initial carbonated head, many bubbles rising in the body for the whole drink. The head had good retention, weak lacing. The aroma upon opening the bottle revealed skunk, but it went away after the pour and as I smelled the glass. The flavor was bready, grassy, corn-like. The flavor was actually not bad for a pale lager, I wasn’t disgusted, although it was a little bit on the weak side. The corn was there for sure, but this was light and refreshing, finishing with a lightly grassy but dry finish. Some grains and bread notes, even a bit herbal. Ok, that’s too much complexity in a description of a beer I used primarily to get another country on the passport.

I had this beer with some Korean BBQ last night. It barely classifies as beer, it’s more like water but not necessarily in a bad way. Very refreshing with spicy food.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet aroma has some notes of creamed corn. Brilliantly clear golden body is topped by a large bubbled white head that recedes to cover. Very slight flavour offers a touch of corn with pleasant balance between what little malt sweetness there is and some herbal, lightly spicy hops with notable bitterness that is in line with the levels of the flavours. Clean and crisp with strong carbonation to the very light body. While it is definitely not a beer I’d reach for with any regularity, it is well made and refreshing. Tulip glass. Fridge temperature. Bottle (BCLS at 8th/Cambie, Oct-06).

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow with steady carbonation and a foamy white head that fades fast to a thin film. Dusty aroma with light roasted grain and mild adjuncts. Flavor is of lightly sweet pale malt that finishes clean. Suffers as it warms, but still better than American macros.
The Hite website is pretty cool and I found some neato avatars which you can steal from the bottom of <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=1 account page!

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
The lightest of the three national brands in Korea, which makes it very refreshing but not much of a beer. Typical skunky aroma with barely discernable adjunct notes. Very smooth finish though. Cheers!
