2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Not half as bad as the Hite beer I had at Incheon Airport a few years ago that still gives me nightmares. Wheaty, bready aromas. Not as much corn flavour as comparable Japanese macro lagers. Not exactly dry finishing- almost creamy if anything- but not a bad palate. Tolerable, which for the price of a happoshu, meant good.

Can @ døe sommer fest. Pale yellow, small white head, no lacing. Aroma, malty, maize, banana, . Taste, malty, maize, banana, . I guess it’s a rating. A lot of carbonation.

smell is metallic, musty, corny. appearance is a medium gold with no head, taste is malty, a little sweet, slightly overcarbonated but it doesnt feel thin. not bad, its slightly harsher and more maltliquorishy than the 4.5% alc hite/cass/max so a good choice to slip in to mix it up if they’re your only choices

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 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 doesn’t 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.

Purchased a bottle at the market in K-Town (Los Angeles). Pours a clear, light gold with a lacy white head. Smells very mild; like white bread. The taste is of wheat, some mild hops and a bit of lemon. The aftertaste is dry and lingering. I was not sure what to expect, but this beer was more drinkable and enjoyable than a Miller Lite, so there is that...

Even I said OB Golden Lager is best in all Korean Lagers, this Dry Finish D is easier to drink and goes down quickly.

It did not get flat even an hour after opening. The taste was very neat, dry, and well-kept until I finished the large bottle.

Standard pale lager. Nothing special. Bought from a market in Seoul. Corn taste and the finish might be a little "drier" than other lagers, but it’s not very noticeable.
