KawaBomber (218) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2008
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!!!

Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells earthy and tea like with some spicy hints. Tastes dry and of sweet corn with some earthiness on the finish.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - DEC 21, 2008
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.

This beer was surprisingly not...awful. It poured a golden color and had decent head. Aroma was faint but hinted at the presence of (dare I say it?)...malt and hops. Mouthfeel was a touch thin. Not too shabby, but I won’t be seeking this out, and I recommend you follow that same course.

50cl bottle. Really not that bad. Light, refreshing flavour. Pretty standard pale lager except not loaded with adjunct. Certainly not something you should hunt down, but not a bad choice.

ChainGangGuy (4534) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, pale yellow body with a shamefully thin, white head. Smell: Vague light pale malt nose with a cereal sweetness to it. Taste: Light pale malts with the faintest hint of grain and a single, solitary drop of honey sweetness. No real hop character though beyond an altogether mild bitterness. Finishes crisp and clean (as there wasn’t anything really there to begin with). Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Ugh. Hite doesn’t exactly represent the height of lager brewing.

From a 12oz can - Pours a clear light pale yellow. Not pretty at all. No carbonation, no lacing . Smells of corn and very light malts. First sip is almost flavorless with just a tad of hops and malts …almost water like. I cannot imagine consuming this product.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2008 had this next to an OB in a Korean BBQ place on 32nd street in NYC. Lots of rice in aroma and flavor. Slightly more offensive then OB Korean lager, but still better than a Bud. Pretty poor.
