Bottle in a Korean restauraunt in York. Pours blond with a quickly fading white head. Grainy citrus aroma. Light spice, citrus and grain empty flavour. Adding an ’s’ to the start of this beer would be a fair deScription. Pretty aweful, but at least South Korea is ticked off.

wow this is some bad stuff. sweetish and grainy, strange faint sournessm very mild presence of hops. At least its light and smooth and goes down fast. You could in theory drink a lot of this on a hot day, but I’m not sure why you would.

Best wel zoet, als rijstsnoepjes. Uit de fles, met Koreaanse gefrituurde kipvleugeltjes, en dat paste wel.

Dispensed from can into teku. Pours clear golden yellow with a large white head which remains for a short while. Aroma is corn, malt, bread. Taste is some astringent artificial bitterness, moderate-high sweetness, biscuits, corn. Consistency is that of the juice that tinned fruit comes in, syrupy and leaves a slightly unpleasant mark on the tongue.

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.

12 ounce bottle
Thousands of mile of travel did nothing to ruin a beer that is the textbook definition of a bland macro scale production. Two sips tell the whole story - this is something you drink for the alcohol and nothing more. Skip unless it is your only way to get a new country tick.

Aroma / Appearance - A golden transparent base sits idly with the occasional draft of carbonation. Grainy adjuncts mix listless hops with flat uninspired wheat. It almost smells like soured cheerios in lemon juice.

Flavor / Palate - Faint inoffensive bitterness tickles the tongue before a segue into lemonade and white bread. Weak and mild, the finish disappears like a puff of smoke. Little can redeem this beer except that now I can cross off one more county - South Korea.

Watery, low on malt, focus on adjuncts, rice and corn, light, almost devoid of flavor. Waste of time. So far the world of Asian macro lagers is the lowest point of beer... unless maybe if the beer is extremely spoiled.
