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.

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.

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.
