2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of slightly sweet grain but not badly so. Fairly full in the mouth but rather bland, albeit not in such an unpleasant way. Mild malts and some sweetnes but again not overly so. Ends with some mild hoppiness.
Had this, if I recall correctly, at the fabulous Shanti in Stockholm. The beer selection isn’t nearly as impressive as the Indian food so I switched to cheaper and not undrinkable Swedish lager after rating this one.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: golden color, transparent. Medium head, white and lasting.
Aroma: malts and floral hops smells, lightly citric and sweet aroma from adjuncts.
Flavor: sweet start from malts and other adjuncts grains (maybe corn). Some citric notes but ephemeral; light hoppy and lasting. Peel-orange’s reminiscences. Grain aftertaste.
Palate: light body and medium carbonation.
Mediocre but refreshing.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
660ml bottle with a meal in Hythe. Straw with a white head; sweet and perfumed, with a strong hint of corn. Went well with a Jalfrezi, but not something to drink by itself

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle at an Indian restaurant in Dover. Golden colour, large head. Interesting smell, which I can’t really define. Malty and grainy, rather full-bodied, hints of rice. Very nice to accompany a curry.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
5.2% 660ml bottle. Sweet, unsubtly potent booziness. All the adjuncty, ricey softness you’d expect, but some Pils-like bitterness in the ’finish’. Washes down a Zal Mass with roasted chillies inoffensively enough.
