HITE PITCHER!!!! If you get this in the giant HITE PITCHER verions its totally worth it. it’s like, 64 oz or something, and its giant and ridiculous looking. honestly, HITE PITCHER should be the photo hite beer, because nobody I know has ever drank hite except from the giant pitcher. this beer is great for hot days when you plan on drinking a lot of beer over a sustained period of time. its not great if you’re trying to get sloshed up right quick but i can definitely imagine drinking it during a dick-about soccer match or perhaps while hanging out next to the river or a slip n’ slide. when it comes down to it though, you only drink HITE because you want people to SEE YOU DRINKING HITE PITCHER. duh. this is easiest to find at asian supermarkets.

Super bright golden. Large ice cream head. Aroma is corn, wheat, with a slightly chemical finish. Taste is rather sweet.

Now served at the WAW lounge in commemoration of WAW-ICN nonstops. Pale but not terribly weak, it’s certainly drinkable, with a richer body than usual for the style. Forgettable of course.

Grisza77 (579) - Poznań, POLAND - OCT 10, 2016
Jasnozłote, klarowne piwo o średniej pianie, która dość szybko redukuje się praktycznie do zera. Aromatu i smaku praktycznie brak, tylko ledwo wyczuwalny słód. Goryczki brak. Ogólnie typowy koncerniak, wodnisty, bez smaku, aromatu i goryczki.

Rolfarild (197) - NORWAY - OCT 9, 2016
Thanks to Line for bringing the beer all the way from Seoul so that I could ad one more country to my brewery list. Clear golden with a small white head. Faint aroma of honney. Taste apricot, sweet caramell, grain and paper. Orange and pepper in the aftertaste. Quite refreshing and high carbonation, but lacks flavor.

Bottle. Clear yellowish with white head. Grainy aroma with notes of honey and flowers. Sweetish and bitterish flavor, grainy with notes of flowers, black pepper and lemon, watery. Light-bodied.

vinivini (1336) - BELARUS - SEP 24, 2016
Can as Hite Ice Point from a trade with YantarCoast, 4.5 ABV. Pours clear gold, tall frothy white head. Average retention. Vague sugary grains, honey on nose. Light body. The flavour is mega clean. Total clearance of any possible character. Malty. One has to struggle for any hops. Why am I glad? I’ve got another country in the record. Thanks, Mark!

Bottle. Clear yellow golden. Aroma is skunky and soapy, some grains. Sweet, vegetal, corn and grainy flavors, sourish finish and aftertaste. Light-bodied, not pleasant.
