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!

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2006
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!

gnoff (7860) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2006
(330 ml bottle, sampled at Delirium Cafe, Gothenburg) Light straw yellow color, small white head. Boring sweet scent. Sweet corn like smell. Very thin vegetable like taste. Boring, boring, boring. Terrible and awful, bad, no thank you. I’m serious! Stay away! To finish it all off: no bitterness what so ever.

yngwie (13617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2006
Bottled at Delirium, Gothenburg. Clear, pale golden with a small white head. Hay, grain some malt and fruit in the aroma. Grassy, hayish and a bit fruity flavor. Thin body and a hayish finish. Where is the hops? Boring beer. (060823)

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2006
[Bottled, Delirium Café, Göteborg] Very pale colour, as is the aroma, with a light fruity(that is green apples), cidery touch. No preservatives are added to this beer, therefor the low abv. Parle aroma? What’s that? Perle hops maybe? Yakima hops were used anyway. Flavour is appley, ultra-light bodied with no bitterness. And cidery.

shrubber85 (7644) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Bottle. Nice barley malt aroma. Golden yellow color with small head. Barley malt flavor with light sourness and hops. A smooth drinkable lager at least as good as BMC products.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2006
My first South Korean beer, and what a beauty it is! Very pale yellow, constant bubbling, but a film for a head. The aroma is faint, sweet, and grassy. Watery and near flavorless, it manages to leave one with a sweet, metallic aftertaste.

Very pale, head is a white film. Has a sour, straw like scent. Flavor is light and watery with nothing identifiable, other than a salty hay/grass-like flavor.
