Good on a very hot day, with nothing else around. Good "drinkability" as its known in the trade. Dont 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, mustnt grumble.

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. Im thinking, at least I can get a tick, and I order the Hite. In hindsight, I shouldve ordered the fucking Budweiser.

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

Moravius (1192) - 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 Malzse und Anklnge an Konservengemse. - Antrunk mild und matt malzslich mit zartem Ssauer und einem Anklang an Gemsekonserven. Hopfen ist praktisch nicht zu erschmecken, wodurch das Bier stumpf und fade wirkt. Gut rezent, schlank bis wrig. Im Abgang bis auf nachhallende knstliche Se (Sstoff) nur noch Leere. Widerlich fader, ganz schwach fauliger Nachtrunk, der um so ekliger wird, je lnger man nicht weitertrinkt. - Billig gemacht (mit Zusatz u.a. von Strke), fade und mit blen Fehlaromen: dieses Bier, eins der groen Supermarktbiere Sdkoreas, ist tatschlich so schlecht wie sein Ruf. Ab damit ins Klo - und: nie wieder Hite!

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

Michael27 (1296) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 17, 2016
Flasche aus Bierabo. Eingeschenkt sieht es erst einmal gut aus. Nur trinken? Man denkt, dass man ein Alkoholfreies hat. Der weite Weg aus Sdkorea war umsonst und berflssig.

DylansDad (606) - 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.

EugeneStraver (170) - Nootdorp, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2015
HOME (20151226): 33 cl brown bottle; BB 19.10.2015. On the label the beer is named: Hite Ice Point. A clear yellow beer with a good white-colored head. The smell is somewhat malty (wheat-like) and slightly hoppy. Taste is slightly sweet with a reasonable body and hardly no hopbitter. Drinkable but not so nice.

AlfredoGarcia (267) - 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.

jbruner (4377) - Marietta, 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.
