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.

Fľaša 330 ml zo Seoul Plaza. Veľmi svetlá slamová farba, biela bublinková pena, pomaly vyšumela, jemná sladovo chmeľová aróma. Vyššia rezkosť, vodové, veľmi jemné. Moje prvé kórejské pivo, čakal som to horšie, ale je celkom piteľné, v teple celkom fajn.

Regular , pale lager. Light notes of malt and hay in the aroma. Malty and watery taste. Drinkable in hot weather.

There’s not much to say about this beer: Just a thin and sweet lager without any bitterness.

TedE (443) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2015
355ml can into glass. Stale slightly sweet nose. Very pale yellow beer with small film of bubbles on top. A few bubbles rising. Mild mineral water taste with tiny bitterness in the finish. Perhaps a hint of lemon sherbet somewhere. Hard to like but also hard to hate.

Gangstergafje (211) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2015
The beer is quite pale. The little color is a nice golden yellow. The beer is crystal clear an is you can see those lovely tingly gas bubbles rise to the top. The beer pours quite some foam, but it is resly rough and disapears quickly. The beer has a lot of smell for a simple lager. There is a a sweet soury aroma which I think is coused by the hops. The smell is good. The taste however is not so great. There is quite a strong and sour alcohol flavor and some bread tastes. The finish is sour and dry, not very pleasant. The high expectations the nice smell created are crushed by the disappointing taste. There are worse beers, sure, but this is definitely not a beer I would choose in the future.

rjplumer (641) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Light grain grass aroma. Clear pale gold body with a quick dissipating head. Bold malt character I wasn’t expecting from a light pale lager. Subtle grain and sweetness. Finish is crisp and on the dry side. Better than expected.
