2.3/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Served chilled in a pub glass. The bottle actually has a thermometer on the bottle that turns blue when it is the right temperature.

A: Clear, light straw yellow. Large white head that fades into nothing very quickly. No lacing. Moderate amount of bubbles throughout drinking.

S: Smells like corn and hot dog water. Vague sweet smell.

T: Bland! It has a slight taste of corn and malt, but no real flavor to it. No taste of any hops. Slight light taste of alcohol. No offensive or off tastes. Flavor did not improve as temperature increased.

M: Very light bodied. Pleasant feel on the front, slight dryness on the back taste. A little astringent on the back taste.

O: This might be an OK "lawn mower" beer for some; if you are really thirsty and drink it fast and colder. I am trying very hard to review this keeping the style in mind and thinking of other beers that I have drank in this same category. I have to admit I do like my beers on the more aggressive side.

I have drank this beer a numerous occasions in the Republic of Korea (South) and select occasions in the United States. Being stationed in South Korea my first two years in the United States Army, I was able to experience this beer every weekend! Pours golden yellow clear, light soapy head, some lacing, and overbearing carbonation. It taste of rice and malt, along with a real fizzy taste, and not filling. It has no edge, malty after taste, and no real aroma.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

12 ounce bottle out of the refrigerator poured into a pint glass.

A - Pale golden color with a fleeting white head that retreats to ok lacing throughout.

S - Very neutral - almost nothing (bad or good)

T - Definite hint of adjuncts along with some grains and light hop flavor.

M - Very clean throughout.

O - I've been wanting to try this for a long time since I am a fan of the LPGA and see several golfers with Hite logos on their equipment and clothing. If I was at a golf tournament in South Korea I could see putting a few of these away. Until then, I've had it and don't see the need to pay a premium for it in the states.

look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 1.75

The glass fills with pale gold, clear, content. The head is weak and quickly disappears with only a small lacing left.
The aroma is expected: malt and grains. Although gentle, quite pleasant.
The taste is bittery and light, The finish is neutral without any real bitterness.
Nice for a refreshment, but not much to the taste.
