Can 50 cl. Courtesy of Lone. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Sweet malty nose - yeah, theres clearly some malts in here! Medium body, sweet maltiness with some brewing cereal. No real bitterness, but the solid maltiness saves this. 230511

(Bottle 64 cl) Pale golden lager with a fine head that doesnt last for long though. Very, very light in body. A bit of malt, a bit of sweetness - and thats it. Absolutely no bitterness. Typical Asian lager. 280303

Ungstrup (35665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2011
Can. A light yellow beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of brewing cereal and rice the flavor has kept the fresh taste of metal, straw, and rice, leading to a dry metallic finish.

Consumed straight from the can, in my hotel room upon arriving in Busan. Sweet honey dough, malt nose, with just a touch of lemon and grassy hops. Well, its obviously very fresh and already much better than I was anticipating. The taste is light and a tad watery, as expected, but its not offensive. Of course its under-bittered, and a bit too sweet, but it did pair nicely with a bowl of spicy noodles.

330 ml bottle, with 11112010 printed on the label. Not sure if thats the bottled or best by date. Also, the "open mark" on the label turns blue at its optimal tasting temperature. The open mark is still blue, so it must be a good time to drink this! Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear pale gold color with about an inch white head that went away quickly. Pretty much no lacing. Aroma is sweet and bready malt. Taste is sweet malt and corn. It doesnt taste or smell bad, but its not appealing either. Mouthfeel/body is light, its a bit slick and is well carbonated. For the style its not a bad overall brew. Its worth trying if you can find a single bottle of it somewhere.

adnielsen (10573) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Bottle @ home. Clear golden yellow appearance with a white head. Grainy, pale malty lager nose thats fairly bland. Pretty watery, light grainy, bland pale malty flavor. Below average Pale Lager. At least I got a South Korean tick.

SHIG (4930) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 30, 2011
Bottle: Poured a golden clear amber with a foamy carbonated head. Aroma is malt, hops, and grain. Taste is metallic grainy.
Earlier Rating: 4/16/2011 Total Score: 2.2
Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow with light head. Aroma is sweet grass and cardboard. This beer has some malt with loads of watery refreshing character that makes this somewhat better than I expected.

"Inoffensive" is about the highest compliment I can pay Hite. A beer for the masses. Of Korea.

Botella. Light yellow colour, short white head. Hardly any aroma, just a bit grass. Ok mouthfeel. Flavour is mild but refreshing, bit crisp and surprisingly with a pretty decent bitterness for such a light tasting beer. Fresh... and thats it.
Earlier Rating: 1/1/2007 Total Score: 2.2
Bottle. Golden colour with an average sized head. Aroma of grains and malt. Flavour has graininess, little sweetness and a nice bitter hoppiness. A decent pale lager.
