Another Asian beer that probably tastes better because of drinking in its home country.

Nothing overly special. Taste is crisp and clean, look is that of a typical lager.

Refreshing and light.

Hite (Extra Cold) has a very thick, frothy, mousse-like head, heavy glass lacing, bubbles, and a mostly clear, straw appearance, with lots of fine, powdery sediment, throughout. Aroma is of pungent, yeasty, sweet, white bread, with grass note, and the flavor is similar and balance. Mouthfeel is medium, and Hite finishes mostly dry.

Ok this is not a beer that you sip for appreciating the nuances of its bouquet and complex flavors. This is a light, crisp rice lager that's best drunk ice cold in order to wash down a spicy Asian meal or better yet, a grill-at-the-table Korean BBQ. For this purpose, there's none better IMHO. That's why it'll be hard to find a Korean restaurant that does not have this brew on its menu.

Pours an amber-golden color with a vanishing, medium sized head.

Smells of toffee wrapped straw and a light herbal note on top.

Has a fizzy, superlight mouthfeel, thin and highly carbonated.

Tastes basically as the beer smells, sweet malts among a metallic, bubbly carbonation and an omnipresent watery flavor hole. Develops a surprising dry note during the finish.

Insustrial lager, too light, too thin, too boring.

Bought it at a Asian grocery, only beer they had.
Taste just like an American Adjunct Lager. No better - no worse.
Price is about the same too, so that's something.

The kind of beer you could drink about 1,000 of. Nicer sweetness, smoothness than expected.
