not good. pours a pale yellow with a small white head that quickly goes away, not much lacing. smell is a typical lager smell, somewhat sour. taste is watery, grain, sourish malt, touch of corn, ends with a strange aftertaste that is somewhat nutty.

Iíll plunge right in and make the obvious joke about adding an "S" to the name and add that if the brewers made this change and sold it in low-cost six packs, the gimmick might help them outsell Lucky and TNT. This stuff tastes like sparkling water with a faint hint of hops and is distinguished from discount beer only by virtue of the fact it comes in a 640 ml bottle. Still, given itís 4.5% alcohol content, even the larger bottle isnít enough to get you drunk enough to start enjoying the stuff. Still, thereís a certain value in being sober enough to carry on a conversation with a woman at a party beginning with, "Yeah, itís not very strong beer, but we drank it all the time that year I was in Korea. Yeah, I was doing some charity work there, but I donít want to bore you. Tell me about yourself..."

Bottle. Pours a straw yellow color. Not much head at all. Very watery, but then other pale lagers. Smells like malts and some nuts. Taste is smooth.

Served with Korean BBQ... Very sweat, corny with a small amount of fruit in the finish. Piss yellow with a foamy head that goes completely away within seconds of pouring it.

Nose is almost none existent when poured into glass. Tastes maybe of mild grain, corn, grass flavors but not much. Slight nutty or butter aftertaste although fleeting. Basically its a mildly alcoholic and equally flavored bottle of water.

Did I forget to rate this beer? Itwas yellow. It had no head. It had no aroma. May have been water. Was not urine as mine has an odor. Rates as the worse beer I’ve ever had. The #1 reason not to visit South Korea. Ship Hite to North Korea, they will surrender!

Not much aroma. I tried and tried, but couldnt find anything. Well, it has an earthy aroma, but very very faint. Color is pale gold with a fizzy, white head. The head gave quickly, leaving a film on the surface of the beer as its only bread crumb. Flavor was crisp and quick. Corn and maltly. Probably tastes great in South Korea.

Golden beer not much in taste but a corn taste that gives your a mouth of aftertaste must be the Yakima hops kinda light and watery tastes like most mass produced lagers common swill not bad happy new year!
