Sweet malt nose with a light lemon note. Taste is drier than most pale lagers, but it still comes across sweet due to the lack of bitterness. Sweet cidery finish.

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not excited for this, but here goes... smells like a cheap pale lager, though the nose is fairly light. Looks like a cheap pale lager. Taste is dry without the residual sweetness so often associated with pale lagers. Whatever. Completely forgettable.

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 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.

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

Can. A golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of corn and a bit of malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of cardboard, corn, and a bit of malt, leading to a dry finish. The body is light. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.
