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.

No head, no lacing. beer is tasteless and easy to gulp down. It’s #1 in Korea because it’s easy to drink. No other reason.

640ml bottle, pale gold with a brief head, mild aroma, watery grasy taste & lingering dry finish, not that good

goleiro (133) - Lublin, POLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Piwo z końca świata. W zapachu nieśmiała lagerowość. W smaku nie najgorsze, ma pewien charakterystyczny smaczek.

NeoHippie2 (991) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Golden straw pour with a small white head. Grassy skunk aromas. Flavor is watery skunk all the way. Gross.

Sevenlee (1320) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma is corn, malt extract with hints of grass. Taste is pretty watery. Not exciting in any way.

Tipo Golden sin el final de jabón. Un poco más limpia y fácil de tomar. A la birria aquí le dicen mechu

461er (12) - Heilbronn, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2014
Clear golden with a minimal head. Very little taste of sweetness and very little hops. This beer is more like sparkling water with a touch of beer.

mansquito (3386) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Some restaurant in K-town,Manhattan: Pours yellow with white head. Aroma is light, but a bit grainy. Taste is very light and watery, but has a cheap grainy finish to it. There is the tiniest bit of hops in here. Pretty bad, but a good enough chaser for hearty food.

Bright, golden color with vast amount of carbonation. It has a light grassy aroma and a taste with no distinctive characteristics. A Korean friend referred to this as the "Budweiser of Korea". I would say that is an accurate description.
