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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2012 Bottled. Clear, pale golden with a small white head. Almost neutral, light malty aroma and flavor. Flavor has some fruityness too. Goes well with Indian food, but nothing special. Rating: 4-3-4-2-9-2.2. 060210
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body under a finger-thick dense, white head leaving some lacings. Fruity nose with pale malts and a touch of something alcoholic. Thin on the palate, and quite low on carbonation. Fruity flavor, but rather uninteresting. Some pale malts and the faintest touch of bitterness. Super-uninteresting, but drinkable. 120107

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
An amber beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of straw and caramel, and the flavor is pretty much like the aroma.
