Bottled 33cl. 5.2 ABV. It pours a golden beer with a small white head. The nose is of quinces. Subtly roasted with hints of caramel, cereals, peaches and apricots. Some tea and sorbet appearing. Sweet malty taste with a hint of quinces accompanied by a nice roasty touch. A bit watery. Some ginger showing up. The finish is crisp, malty with a hint of mint and ginger.

Yellow and with no carbonation. Slightly sweet and a little thin. Not as bad as i had expected but nothing to write home about either.

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.
