1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Courtesy of tderoeck. Apparently conceived as a beer from Bangladesh or India, but, much like e.g. Cobra, brewed in England for the many Asian immigrants there - too bad, would have been an interesting country tick otherwise. Thin and unstable, off-white head, pale golden blonde colour with not much fizz, cristal clear. Aroma of rice, sweat, iron and burning rubber, unpleasant. Sweet and sourish graininess in the mouth, thin, weird sweet (industrial) apple cider accent not fitting in too well, soft carbo (undercarbonated in fact, but in this case the fact that the bottle had been opened a while before, explains everything, I assume); thin and clearly metallic body, rice flavour, straightforward with almost no hops for balance; I hardly detected any bitterness at all in this one. Very unpleasant in every way but still interesting to taste, I had never heard of it.

I imagine this was brewed with some rice , which gives some floral tones. Does the job of washing down a curry

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a teku showing dark translucent caramel brown with a finger of clean white foam.
The nose shows sweet corn and caramel malts.
The palate shows a lot of corn sweetness and hints of bready maltiness. Smooth, full bodied and evenly carbonated. Barely perceivable bitterness on finish but the sweetness returns once more on the finish.

Hazy deep golden with a thin carbonated head, off malty and pear taste. Not the best lager I’ve had by a long shot.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
660ml bottle. Golden pour with soft white head. Very, very mild and smooth. Not much hops to comment on. However, the general blandness went well with the curry I was having, so it serves a purposes, but not one outside that very specific meal.
