Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is corn, brewing cereal and water. Taste is watery corn. Youíre drinking a pale lager, oh you were expecting flavour? Hahaha silly you!

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
330 ml can bought at magstore in Nathan Road, Jordan.
Clear light golden yellow colour One-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Good sticky lacing and active small carbonation; Slightly pungent aroma of malt, with very light band-aid, light floral, sugar, yeast, lemon and very light grass; Close to medium sweet taste of malt, with rice, strong sugar, light floral, odd-tasting chemical, cracker, yeast, light lemon, very light bitter hops and faint grass; Light body. Slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is fairly dry. Maltyness is thinned by strong rice, but it was that enduring, band aid-like taste thatís really annoying, in addition the sugar is not that strong to the tongue but itís teeth-roting. No good!... Hoppiness is light floral, lemon and thin grass in nose and taste. Bitterness is light, odd-tasting and extract-like for a lasting, light astringent sweet-bitter finish; Fairly dry after taste. Awkward and fairly bitter to mouth.
Comments: Usually this company makes some fairly good and drinkable lagers, but this is an exception - a mix of band-aid, odd chemicals and sugar ends this dry attempt into disaster. Drain pours!

Ah the ticks youíll grind when in Cambodia. Light gold, head lasts a bit longer than Iím used to here. Nose has rice and cereal, grass. Flavour isnít particularly dry, bready, I think I prefer the NE Asian lagers to the SE Asian ones.

Bottle. Clear golden pour with a head that disappeared quickly. Fruit, corn and grain. Sparkling water with slight sweetness at the end. Really watery. But not offensive

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Clear pale gold with little head. Pleasant but subtle aroma. Light body, medium carbonation. Taste is not bad: rather light on flavour but nice balance between sweet and citrus tang; with a very little amount of bitterness. Overall, its OK.

Eh this is nearly identical to regular Hite, i.e. virtually no flavor or aroma and very good for binge drinking.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 330ml bottle, barcode 8801119683342, labelled Dry finish d imported, no mention of the brewery Hite. The fine print however on the label says brewed and bottled by Hite Jinro Co Ltd, Seoul Korea. The back of the label has a health warning in poorly translated Swedish. Pours clear pale golden, with a medium white head that dissipated quickly, and left no lacing. A faint aroma of corn and grain. Taste is of corn and sweet wheat bread. The taste is indeed dry as the name implies, but also somewhat sweet. As the beer warms up the alcohol becomes prominent, and there is also a funky cabbage like character. Fizzy carbonation, light watery body and a thin texture. I acquired this beer just because I wanted to taste a beer from Korea. However doesnít live up to my already low expectations on Korean beer. Everything about it is bizarre to me, even the name and strange futuristic design of the logo, the poorly translated Swedish text on the label, and the sweet but yet dry taste. And this is supposedly tastier than the ordinary Hite? With all that said, still quite okay to drink cold with spicy food.
