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!

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz Bottle: Clear gold with a large, fluffy white head that disappears fast, it does leave a nice bit of lacing behind. Not much aroma to speak of, a bit of grain and some sort of spiciness. Taste is full O corn. Very um...light. AKA watery. Also leaves a funky aftertaste behind. Bland and easy to forget beer. I did enjoy saying HITE!!! though. If only it could get bonus points for making me laugh. HITE!!!

12oz. bottle in Incheon, South Korea along with some awesome sashimi! Pours a clear light golden, minimal white head, minimal retention and lacing. Aroma is gentle citrus hops and malts. Flavor has a mild citrus hops bite and malts. Actually, not too bad, and would probably be my go to beer in Korea.
