COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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!"

So sweet it’s insane. Obviously I’m pretty pissed about the location too. Not a great beer by any stretch.

Curses! Foiled again in an attempt to tick another country. Sad, I know. Any way, this pale lager (4.8% these days) has an orange tinge to the clear golden pour, and the thin white head goes quickly. Aromas of cardboard and cooked vegetables. Taste is kind of sweet, kind of chemically. Not very good.

660ml bottle, Kings Cross Tandoori, London (£4.25):
Corn & some lager malts with light and sweet notes. There is some grassy hops as well and overall the beer is light on the nose with a clean and fresh aroma.
Bright amber with a foamy white head that holds pretty well for a pale lager. Clear and there is some signs of carbonation showing.
Light and clean taste with some grassy hops, faint background fruits and some light bitterness. Quite refreshing tasting and one that goes down well with a curry.
Clean and refreshing too, particularly with spicy food. There is a slightly grainy feel but nothing major. Carbonation is moderate to strong and the beer goes down easy.

A pretty good pale lager and much better than one would expect going in. The taste is a crisp and clean one with a nice bite at the end and it goes particularly well with spicy food.

Theydon_Bois (8327) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle at the Mogul, Bagshot, 05/09/13. Listed as 4.8% ABV. Clear golden, slight chill haze, good sized egg shell white head. Nose is pale malts, grass, citrus, light vanilla, touch of caramel. Taste comprises cereals, sugar, light floral notes, touch of citrus, grass. Medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, a little ott on the fizz factor. Ok as a pale lager I guess.

kwik-lime (1294) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2013
Rather fizzy, a bit of hop crispness balancing the corn. A little bit of sweetness. You can do worse with a curry.

Gorm (1179) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2013 Lys gyllen farve med hvitt skum som ligger en stund. Søtlig duft. Søtlig smak av frukt med bitter ettersmak.

Helt ok lager. Godt å drikke men ikke så spesielt. Fint sommer og grill øl. Leskende.

vipinvelp (2142) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2013
Clear golden yellow with white foam head, lacing to glass. Aroma is bit sweet, taste it sweet, little bitter. Short aftertaste. Did great with the Indian food I ordered. (London 201305)

Holmen1 (2378) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2013
0,66 flaske fra polets nettbutikk, 4,8%: en innbydende flaske med en eksotisk etikett, dette lover godt. Tett hvitt skum som faktisk varer, men tvilen sniker seg inn. Her er praktisk talt ingen aroma, bare et sneev av stall og uvaskede sokker. Første munnfull gir assosiasjoner til gammelt høy. Ingen ettersmak som er verdt å beskrive. Etter hvert går det fortere og fortere ned, her er ingen grunn til å nyte dråpene."A rich full flavour with an extraordinaryily smooth taste" - bullshit! A total waste of good money.

nooneassuch (3) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2013 does not count
Used to be one of the better accompaniments to a curry but alcohol has been reduced to 4.8% making it rather bland in comparison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
