maybe my first brew from south korea, and honestly nothing special, but this is a beer i would chose with asian fare ahead of most other asian imports that make it to the united states. a little haze to a very pale yellow beer and a frothy little head. the nose on this is adjunct lager all the way, but no weird metals or minerals or odd sugars, its rather clean, and as simple as it is, its better than many of its peers. some sweetness in taste, but the finish is as its namesake says, clean and quick, its simple. it has more body than most of these too, and without the tang of off malt flavors, it really works for what it is, i like the froth to it, i like its bigger body, but at the end of the day its still a generic adjunct type that underwhelms on mst counts. i wonder if this will catch on in the states or not.

Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass. I bought a 6 pack at the local Korean market for $6.

A: Pours a completely clear golden straw color. There is a vibrantly white head of large bubbles which fades over the course of a minute to nothing. No lacing whatsoever.

S: Primarily grain in the aroma, with some more subtle notes of estery fruit, grapes.

T: A grape-like malt flavor is the dominant theme, backed up by grain and some very light hops. Finish is relatively clean with just a little bit of lingering bready malt.

M: True it its name, it has a (relatively) dry finish, enhanced by a very mild alcohol sensation. Low carbonation makes this quite quaffable.

O: Actually decent for an adjunct lager. I like it more than any BMC. I also seem to pick up a mild, estery fruit that other reviews here don't mention.

Purchased for $1.09 at Super A Foods in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles/California/USA.

A: I drank this beer from a can. There was no beer to be seen. I did not notice anything unusual.
S: Hite Dry Finish D has the aroma of any ordinary beer. I smell the aroma of brewed beer.
T: Hite Dry Finish D has a slightly sour taste. Vague taste of lemon. There is a bitter taste as the beer settles in the mouth.
M: Hite Dry Finish D has good carbonation in the beginning. After a while, Hite Dry Finish D loses carbonation very fast.

O: Hite Dry Finish D could almost be considered a sour/bitter beer. In the beginning, there is a sour taste. Later, there is a bitter taste as the beer goes in the mouth. Hite Dry Finish D loses carbonation quickly in a very surprising way. Each person has a favourite beer. People who enjoy slightly sour/low carbonation beers would be happy to drink Hite Dry Finish D.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of grain, grass/hay, and some slightly vegetal aromas. Taste is much the same with a corn flavor on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer but somehow not as bad as regular Hite.

355ml can poured into a pint glass by freshness date.

A:
Clear bright gold color with thick white foamy head that quickly vanishes with wee lace, medium to high carbonation.

S:
The smell is dry grain, some sweet malt, fresh hay and grassy hop.

T:
Cereal/grain touch is all around and yields some astringency, mingle by slight sweetness and grassy note, hop bitterness is likely vague.

M:
The body is light, sharp carbonated, pricky mouthfeel, not much smooth and not much dry in the finish unlike its name.

O:
Go down easy but rather dull owing to its light and clean in aroma, flavor and body. Thus, better to pair with some tasty food than drinking it alone.
