1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle, 330ml from York Beer & Wine. Pale straw with white head. Thin, soapy, tinny pale lager with a vegetable, slightly putrid aroma, sweet cheap malt on the palate. Just as I imagined it would be, but I had to buy it as a new country to the list.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Looked like an unhealthy piss with soapy bubbles.
Good News - served at an icy temperature.
Bad News - the cold couldn’t fully hide the chemical-corn aroma. Oddly viscous feel for a brew with little flavour. Aftertaste was mild, but a vague chemical tang was left behind, making this a failure as even a lawnmower beer.

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.
