2.53/5 rDev +1.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
Bright golden color with a thick head with medium retention.
Light sweet aroma of pale bready malt, vanilla and adjuncts.
Crisp and refreshing taste with hints of floral hops, sweet pale malt, finishing with a mild lemon hint and some low oxidation.
Watery body with good carbonation.
Adjunct lager a bit above average, hops are mild but they can be sensed and adjuncts are on the low side and probably rice rather than corn.
Serving type: on-tap

Had in Beijing.
355ml can pored into a pint glass.
Born on date: 3/19/13
Ingredients list water, barley, and hops.
A- Golden-yellow. Moderate carbonation.
S- Faint hint of wet grain. Not much of a nose on this one.
T- A little grain gives way to a metallic aftertaste.
M- Super smooth, good carbonation. Crisp finish.
I was looking forward to this after not seeing any adjuncts listed in the ingredients.I was let down when I experienced just another bland, mass-produced Asian lager. The can states: "Clean & Pure!" as well as "Freezing Point Filtration System." It is surely clean and pure, but they seem to have filtered out the beer flavor.
Serving type: can

Hite? A Korean beer that was purchased in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Huh, go figure.
Well, in an endeavor to be a goo beer advocate and try everything new I can find, I was in a Korean food store in the dead center of South America and encountered Hite.
It's notable the that "cold meter" on the bottle label has apparently reached Korea, and my bottle indicated that it was the appropriate time to drink. Unfortunately there were no cups available to see the beer to evaluate it properly. But it was obviously the golden/pale lager color. Smell was dull at best, and taste followed suit. Hite gives you the effervescent sensation as any other mass produced lager. Would I drink it again? Not a chance. The only uniqueness to this beer is that it's the only Korean beer I've ever had.

A: Pours all white head at first, angrily sizzling. After a little while the uneven head is almost gone, replaced by pale golden liquid. Only poor lacings.
S: Very light in smell; some detergent-like malts, sweet, together with rice. Only very faint hoppy bitterness.
T: Rather smooth and well balanced in taste. Don't get me wrong, this is a mild macro-beer, but considering that, not too shabby. Malt and some bitter hops together with a little rice, makes this a soft-tasting beer.
M: Short aftertaste, a bit bitter. Body is light and carbontion is strong and aggresive.
O: This is a poor product with a big adjunct-vibe to it. If that's what you're into, this could be gold, otherwise - avoid!
