travita (3913) - Frisco, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle. The look is clear, small white head, and golden in color. The smell is grainy, cereal, sweet florals, and ok. The taste is malt, floral, dirt, and eh.

Hite Ice point Apariencia:2 Cabeza: Espuma, blanca, abundante de poca duración hasta que desaparece de inmediato y por completo Cuerpo: cuerpo plano con poca efervescencia sin partículas de amarillo transparente Aroma:8 vainilla, goma de mascar, miel, un aroma particularmente dulce. Paladar:5 Cuerpo: buen cuerpo, cremoso, poco burbujeante con un final ligerísimo astringente Sabor:7 Ligero inicio dulce final ligeramente amargo de muy corta duración. 15Una interesante cerveza de la que me sorprende la combinación de un cuerpo robusto, aromas dulces y un sabor muy ligero. Los coreanos han traído muchas cosas de calidad cuestionable a Guatemala pero esta no es una de esas. Merece una oportunidad. Ice Hite point Appearance 2 Head: Foam, white, abundant short-lived until it disappears immediately and completely Body: flat body with little effervescence without clear yellow particles Aroma 8 vanilla, gum, honey, a particularly sweet aroma. Palate: 5 Body: good body, creamy, slightly bubbly with an astringent faintest end Taste: 7 Lightweight home slightly bitter sweet end of very short duration. 15Una interesting beer that surprised me the combination of a robust body, sweet aroma and a very light taste. Koreans have brought many things of questionable quality to Guatemala but this is not one of those. Deserves a chance.

AWS9 (473) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle. Pretty lame pale gold pour. Aroma okay - some grass, mild hop, and a hint of malt. Lifeless taste, corn, cereal, mild veg... Certainly a drinkable pale lager, nothing too astringent here, so it gets THAT job done, but nothing else.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle from a Korean restaurant in Fairfield, CA. Since I was having the Korean BBQ I figured I try the beer. Typical pale lager. If I didn’t pour the bottle myself, It could have been any number of different beers. Blah....

Boutip (4677) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color lager with a pure white foamy head with light retention and not much lacing. Aroma of light adjunct notes with some cereal notes also perceptible. Taste is also dominated by light cereal notes with some adjunct and light sweet finish. Finish is actually crisper and cleaner then I had expected. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. This is actually better than I was expecting but still not great though.

harrymel (1496) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2013
A: Pours a dilute urinal yellow with under a single finger of loosely packed soapy head. This sticks to the sides as it slides down; restated: the head goes down. Little to no lacing this is not a cabaret show. I can see my fingerprint through this beer. To piss standards, this is excellent, to beer a 4. (4) S: Initially, when I cracked the bottle and took a whiff - Pepe, but this dies off while sitting. Now that the beer has been given the opportunity to decant a bit, let’s take another swing through the muffler. Light grains and noble hops. The beer has a small mineral quality combined with the markings of a walk through my local English garden- plenty of floral characteristics. Slightest hint of butterscotch. Thinking Belgian blonde. (4) T: Light and effervescent in the mouth. Lemon hints, grain, the most distanced light hop dance. Some hints of corn as well. No evident corn. The slightest coriander/yeast flavor to me. (3.5) M: Light with spritely carbonation. Very white wine finish - dry, but not so dry. (3.5) O: Still thinking Belgian blonde. I wish it were 85F and sunny out rather than the middle of the night. This beer is easy to drink and good bordering on great. Would drink again in a heartbeat. (3.5) Guess: again, Belgian blonde, Achel....for the win!! Reveal: Hite cool & Fresh The reaction: well, I now I don’t want to post this. It’s made in Korea. Has a BA rating of D+ It has an ‘indicator’ for when it’s cold enough...I’m at a loss for words...Fuck it, I’m drinking this with pride. I have two friends that live in Korea to teach English, and I’m cheersing to them. To the crowd, you’re welcome to tell me I’m obviously a noob at tasting. Serving type: bottle 05-29-2011

Can, called Hite Ice. Simple yellow beer. Not much to add here. The Korean short rib and pork belly tacos were good though

ruigo (1062) - PORTUGAL - DEC 8, 2013
Shared a 33cl from a local Asian shop. Pours a clear straw yellow colour with almost no head. Not much of an aroma and a quite watery taste. But not so bad and quite drinkable on a summer day.
