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.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale golden with a large white head.
Dry, papery; like pouring flour in your mouth.
Sourish and artificial with notes of aceton.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pretty good. A strong and sweet amber lager. I understand that this beer is from Bangladesh. As a Muslim country, they are unable to consume this lager themselves, so I think it is quite kind of them to take time out from being hammered by monsoons to brew this up for us indulgent westerners. Thanks Banglas!!!

From bottle. Very sweet beer. Strong honey flavour. Sweet scented aroma. Gold in colour. I enjoyed the first sip but just got to sickly. Nice with the curry mind.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Gold, lasting off white head. Slightly perfumed aroma. Not much in mouth. Finish disappears with just the faintest of hop flavour. Not awful, cos there isn’t enough flavour for it to be horrid, but just no real flavours.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a three finger white head that fades quickly leaving a trace of lace. Chrystal clear light amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Apple juice/cider nose. Starts sweet, fizzy apple flavor hints of adjuncts in background. Brewer says "With a strength of 5.2% ABV, Bangla is stronger than most Indian beers and has a fuller flavour and smoother taste, which perfectly complements spicy food." Didn’t know what to expect. $1.99 for a 660ml bottle from John’s Market Place Tigard, Or.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark gold body with a slightly yellow colored head. The aroma is grainy with soybeans and some light corn. There is also some grass. The taste is sweet with some oatmeal and nasty sweet corn. There is also some funky old rotting flowers. A strange beer. It is not skunked, but still tastes bad in some way. Wow, why did they have to sell this in larger sized bottles? Makes me wince and reminds me of some of the worse malt liquors I have tried.
