1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pissy lager colour. Skunky nose. Slightly sweet malty, perfumy taste. Good for only one thing drinking with curry. You can’t taste the stuff then!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, from Sainsbury’s. Gold, thin but longlasting white head and good soft (almost natural) condition. Clean nose with some low maltiness and just a hint of hop. Quite sweet and full bodied in the mouth with notes of honey and faint butterscotch. Some hop bitterness develops becoming chalky in the finish with a slight metallic edge.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale golden colour with a thick persistant white head. Pale malt aroma and a bit of fruit. Not bad, especially when paired with the curry that I’ve paired it with.

Bottled, pasteurised. Golden with bubbly head. My second choice in a local punjabi restaraunt, but my fears were shortlived, this is a creamy hoppy well flavoured lager that cut through the spicy food nicely. A very decent lager indeed, well done Refresh.

Light gold in colour. Aromas are grain and gasp - hops. Flavours are pine hops, grain and some chemical/metal finish. But, this is one of the better standard lagers out there and it goes down well with a curry.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I thought I'd bagged an elusive Bangladeshi beer until I came to post the rating to the site. Doh! Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised by the beer, which is a reasonable, if unexciting golden lager. Minimal aroma, some soft hops on the palate and a soft, fresh finish. Just a hint of sweetness. It is far better than some of its rivals and has a bit more alcohol. For once, I wasn't drinking this with a curry, but I reckon this would go down just fine with Asian food. 330ml bottled (best before November 2003) from beersofeurope.co.uk

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. The brewer is named as the Far East Beer Company, which is the Refresh UK group who are using the Burtonwood and Wychwood breweries at the moment. This is a lager brewed in the British style so that it almost comes across as a poor quality session bitter. Firmish body with some lingering plastic bitterness. Not great, but drinkable if you don't think about it too much.

Bottled. This beer was new to my local ruby house. Nicely presented with a big generous hoppy aroma. The beer drinks like any other larger and you don't nice the primary effects of the alcohol but rather just the secondary effects on the mind. Nice beer that has re-assured my inclanation to travel to the sub-continent.

Good lager head from this beer but with a very plain and non-descript aroma. The flavour is pleasantly hopped with a malt undertone, making the beer a very smooth lager/pilsner. The best beer that I have found to accompany an Indian meal.
