Ah the ticks you’ll grind when in Cambodia. Light gold, head lasts a bit longer than I’m used to here. Nose has rice and cereal, grass. Flavour isn’t particularly dry, bready, I think I prefer the NE Asian lagers to the SE Asian ones.

pachnie jabolem - siarka, igristoj taki. jasnozłoty kolor z dość kiepską pianą. w smaku słodko, trochę jak gazowana woda spod kukurydzy.

Je à pale golden lager with a thin white head. In aroma, classic eurolager with crisp malt, mineral notes, light German hops, OK. In mouth, a light refreshing lager with faint malt, mineral notes, watery, but I’ve seen more boring. Bottle from Renaissance lounge, Seoul.

Goldgelb mit geringem Schaum. Geruch leicht malzig. Geschmack wässrig malzig. Kein besonderes Lager!

Bottle. Clear golden pour with a head that disappeared quickly. Fruit, corn and grain. Sparkling water with slight sweetness at the end. Really watery. But not offensive

330ml bottle from The Little Bottler. Standard pale lager with not much of anything going on. One of those beers that you know are going to be average but you try it anyway.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 330ml bottle, barcode 8801119683342, labelled Dry finish d imported, no mention of the brewery Hite. The fine print however on the label says brewed and bottled by Hite Jinro Co Ltd, Seoul Korea. The back of the label has a health warning in poorly translated Swedish. Pours clear pale golden, with a medium white head that dissipated quickly, and left no lacing. A faint aroma of corn and grain. Taste is of corn and sweet wheat bread. The taste is indeed dry as the name implies, but also somewhat sweet. As the beer warms up the alcohol becomes prominent, and there is also a funky cabbage like character. Fizzy carbonation, light watery body and a thin texture. I acquired this beer just because I wanted to taste a beer from Korea. However doesn’t live up to my already low expectations on Korean beer. Everything about it is bizarre to me, even the name and strange futuristic design of the logo, the poorly translated Swedish text on the label, and the sweet but yet dry taste. And this is supposedly tastier than the ordinary Hite? With all that said, still quite okay to drink cold with spicy food.

Sample from bottle @SBWF13. Pale yellow with small white head. Aroma of corn and pale malt, some cardboard. Taste is corn, pale malt, watery and bland. The boot babes tried to convince us that "this has MUCH more flavor than the ordinary Hite"

Gdzie tu wytrawny finisz? Piwo na skruty. Dziwna etykieta, egzotyczny posmak, czyli glukoza i syropy z jeczmienia i wszechpanujaca kukurydza. Marka podstawowa prawie taka sama. Nie rozroznia sie smaku miedzy jednym jak i drugim. Wieksze tylko nagazowanie.
