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.
