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.

Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso rimanda molto al mais e un po’ all’orzo. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma va in rapida dispersione, con bollicine medie e carbonazione bassa. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Le bollicine sono poche e fini, con carbonazione persistente. Il colore è giallo dorato carico. Il corpo è snello. L’amaro è appena percepibile, con una punta di aspro. L’intensità gustativa è leggera e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il finale è acido. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca rimanda a pane, mais e orzo.

Good on a very hot day, with nothing else around. Good "drinkability" as it’s known in the trade. Don’t waste refrigerator space, use an old trick I learned in ’Nam: put ice cubes in a glass and pour. Was ready to say I ticked off South Korea and South Korea reciprocated. But at $2.99 a six-pack at 99c Store in California, mustn’t grumble.

Flasche aus Bierabo. Eingeschenkt sieht es erst einmal gut aus. Nur trinken? Man denkt, dass man ein Alkoholfreies hat. Der weite Weg aus Südkorea war umsonst und überflüssig.

Moravius (1001) - Beijing, CHINA - MAR 30, 2016
Flasche („hite Pale Lager“, 4,3 %, 640 ml) aus einem Supermarkt in Busan. - Goldgelb, blank. - In der Nase recht chemische Malzsüße und Anklänge an Konservengemüse. - Antrunk mild und matt malzsüßlich mit zartem Süßsauer und einem Anklang an Gemüsekonserven. Hopfen ist praktisch nicht zu erschmecken, wodurch das Bier stumpf und fade wirkt. Gut rezent, schlank bis wäßrig. Im Abgang bis auf nachhallende künstliche Süße (Süßstoff) nur noch Leere. Widerlich fader, ganz schwach fauliger Nachtrunk, der um so ekliger wird, je länger man nicht weitertrinkt. - Billig gemacht (mit Zusatz u.a. von Stärke), fade und mit üblen Fehlaromen: dieses Bier, eins der großen Supermarktbiere Südkoreas, ist tatsächlich so schlecht wie sein Ruf. Ab damit ins Klo - und: nie wieder Hite!

AlfredoGarcia (247) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 26, 2016
330 ml bottle. Bought in a Jumbo supermarket in Santiago. Clear golden color low white head. Refreshing smell of grass; lager, quoi. Hoppy taste, way more than the usual lager. Of course in not an IPA, but it do taste like beer; sadly is excesibly waterish. Aftertaste metallic.

So, my buddy drags me into this absolute garbage bar in Busan. Dirty, sticky, loud pop-rap, the works. Ok. There are two beers at the bar, Budweiser and Hite. I’m thinking, at least I can get a tick, and I order the Hite. In hindsight, I should’ve ordered the fucking Budweiser.

DylansDad (552) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 5, 2016
Typical generic lager aroma of grainy malt and very faint hops. Apple juice shows as it warms. Very watery with very light generic lager flavours, some lemon and apple, grass, very light bitterness and light spice. Drinkable when cold.

Quite lame. pour is an still clear yellow, tiny thin head than vanishes. Smell is watery, sweet, and bland. Taste is exactly the same.

jbruner (3726) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Pours a clear golden yellow from the can with bubbly white head that dissipates quickly to leave little lace. Aroma and taste of pale lager, corn sweetness, light crisp yeast, meh. Carbonation a bit weak, unexciting.

A very fresh Korean lager. Great stuff, a nice taste that balances between sweet and bitter.
