(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.

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

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

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.

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 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.

Clear golden pour with high carbonation. Grainy flavor with a strong taste of corn. Smells like your standard Korean lager. Goes down easy...not sure what this dry brewing process is all about

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

pachnie jabolem - siarka, igristoj taki. jasnozłoty kolor z dość kiepską pianą. w smaku słodko, trochę jak gazowana woda spod kukurydzy.
