Sevenlee (1294) - 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 (3338) - 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.

Kita (1030) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l, courtesy of Euihwan. Clear straw color with small frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of cereals, herbal hops and vegetables. Taste starts light sweet grainy, follows by grassy acidity and papery notes with plain mouthfeel and very light bitter finish. Light body, watery texture and lively carbonation in palate. With all respect to my Korean friends, that’s close to nothing...

johnnnniee (2282) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle received in trade, labeled as Hite Ice Point Pours a crystal clear medium straw color with a huge bubbly bone white head that quickly recedes to a cap on top. Smells quite grainy with hints of skunk and some faint spicy earthy hop aromas. Not a lot going on in the aroma here. The flavor is very light apple with hints of grain and little to no hop flavor with a light hop bitterness. Light body with a moderate to high level of carbonation. Quite light and watery; Not horrible, but somewhat devoid of much flavor. Drinkable but that’s about it.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle@home. Clear, yellow, with a quick to disappear head. Not much in the aroma, perhaps a hint of caramel and grains. Thin as it gets, with plenty of carbonation. Very summerish lager, but I guess it never promised to be anything else. It’s pretty much what I expected.
