Typical Korean style's adjunct lager. Very high carbonation. malt flavors and hop flavors can hardly be found.

Yes, had this on many a night in Teagu outside the gates of Camp Henry. It's an unfortunate beer. Tastes a little less like perspiration than OB, but still - the taste is still there.

Can consumed on Korean Air (Los Angeles to São Paulo). The can itself has a number of marketing words, from "bottom fermentation" to "ice point". It was free, so I can't complain about price. On to the beer:

The beer has a pale yellow color, topped with a soapy white head and solid head retention. I smell rice being fermented, blah. Perhaps to no surprise based off the aroma, the beer tastes like a rice lager. A dash of malt and husk for kicks and giggles, overall the beer has a sweet flavor. Sweet like cream. I won't applaud this effort as a roaring success, however the beer is not offensive. It's light bodied with a coarse feel, paired with spritzy carbonation.

Hite does not excite me. After my can, I switched my alcohol option on the plane to red wine.

Review: Bottle of Hite Pale Lager 4.5%ABV

Hite lager is a nice, pleasant tasting beer from South Korea, that’s so good with Korean food.

Pours a golden yellow clear colour with a small light head and some lacing.

A nice sweet aroma of light malt and grains were found making the smell one of the highlights of this Korean brew. On closer inspection the smell is quite unusual, a strong tinge of a shot, possibly the rice.

it is an extremely easy tasting drink: sweet, clear and crisp. Its smoothness making it go down very well. There was a lingering grain sweetness throughout in the beer that stays nice till the end, no bitterness found in this beer. It tasted of a little rice and pale malt, some grains and a light hop flavour. Very refreshing and clean throughout, I enjoyed this beer. This beer is pleasant. and perfect for the light beer drinker. Definitely a top class session beer, perfect for a night out with friends to a restaurant, say perhaps a Korean restaurant! Would work very well with some light food.
