COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly contract brewed by Hepworth for Refresh UK. Brand now owned by LWC Drinks - current provenance unknown.
Bangla Beer - its colour...the golden hue of the sun setting over the Bay of Bengal. Bangla Beer - its taste...a rich full flavour with an extraordinarily smooth taste. Chamotkar!"

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.

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

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2003
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.

Hoppy nose, bronze hue, large 660 ml bottle, the hops are quite tasty here and this beer is pretty good - worth having with a curry

Bottled(660ml). -average lager, good with kebab, gold color, refreshing if you drink fast because it is avaliable only in 660ml bottle
