2.15/5  rDev -20.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

Pours a finger of head on a clear golden colored body. Low head retention.
The aroma is stale white rice. Not great, not good.
The taste starts mildly sweet and becomes increasingly sweet to the finish. Not enjoyable.
The texture is crisp with sticky edges. Moderate carbonation but still fizzy.

Serving type: can

On the plus side, this beer doesn't have a lot going for it other than there are no " bad" flavors. Does seem to be fresh. It's in a can, so no light struck problems. On the down side- no head or lace. Thin, fizzy. Corn flavors and aromas. Zero complexity. The odd thing is trying to calculate its worth. I've seen bottle water that is selling for more than what I believe this to be worth- at least in my low cost of living home town.

2.46/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

this is the least impressive of the three hite beers i had today. an ice beer type, smoother than a lot of american ones, but still that awful metallic funk on the back end and nakedly exposed alcohol that make these all the same in some way. hard to believe for a beer under 5%, but it has absolutely no flavor to mask it. pale yellow in color, not real different in looks from the dry finish version, maybe a little less heady. nose like an aluminum can and some adjunct extract type malt profile, typical yellow beer stuff. not to be critical unfairly though, this is one of the finer low budget ice beers ive had, which isnt saying much, but it is a testament to the quality control over in korea compared to the ones here. i would never pay for this, its fizzy feel and alcohol sting are unpleasant, but as a freebie it approaches passable in its style category.

2.15/5  rDev -20.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: light yellow hue with no haze to the body and a very strong effervescence. Head is one finger of frothy white foam which is dissipating quickly. Par for the style.

Smell: sweet and a little grainy with a bit of a plastic aroma worked in. Not the worst in the world, but not particularly good.

Taste: less sweet than the aroma, but still kind of off-putting. Grainy, a little corny, and not wonderful.

Mouthfeel: light body with a big carbonation. Again, par for the style.

Overall: I'm not a big fan of this beer. I've had plenty of cheap fizzy beers in my time, and while Hite Ice Point definitely isn't the worst, it really has nothing to recommend it.

2.83/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: Very pale yellow. Barely any color at all. Forms a fizzy white head the comes and goes quickly. No lacing.

S: Corn, rice, and some light grassy hops.

T: Light sweetness. Stewed corn, rice, and even less grassy hops than in the aroma. A bit of apple juice.

M: Lighter bodied. Medium carbonation. Mildly sticky. Virtually non-existent bitterness.

O: Trying to be authentic, I bought a bottle of this at the Korean grocery to go with my Kalbi, Kimchee, and pickles. Not a very impressive beer in the least. Didn't do much for my Kalbi.

2.5/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Clear medium golden in color, with, a decent , coarse white head, which retains fairly well, and a smattering of fine, fast-rising carbonation.

Aroma: Cooked corn, and grassy, steely hops dominate the aroma.

Taste: Opens with cooked corn, and somewhat aggressive steely hops. As the taste progresses, the hops and cooked corn vie for dominance. Finishes, with a lingering, mild bitterness.

Mouth feel: A bit thin, with slightly stinging carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: A drinkable, but mediocre example, with little to distinguish itself. If you pass on this, you haven't missed much.

Presentation: Packaged in a custom twenty-one point six ounce brown glass bomber with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

3/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

appearance: Hite Ice Point had no foam. There were no bubbles visible.
smell: Hite Ice Point has a light smell of grain. Hite Ice Point has the aroma of ordinary beer.
taste: Hite Ice Point has flavours of grain mixed with salt.
mouthfeel: Hite Ice Point has average carbonation.

overall: Hite Ice Point is a beer that is ordinary. A light grain taste mixed with salt seems to be the main flavour. The carbonation is average. A positive point about Hite Ice Point is that the carbonation stays the same over a period of time. People who enjoy a slightly salty taste of grain mixed with beer may enjoy Hite Ice Point.

Pint bottle of Hite Ice Point was purchased for $1.59 USD in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA, USA.
