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 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.66l massive green bottle. Pours a clear light golden body with a bubbly white head leaving small lacings. Nose is mildly malts, cactus, and some weak hops. Tastes quite fresh and malty, medium+ carbonated and medium- bodied. Ends quite sweet and fruity with cactus flavors. Not to exciting, but quite suitable for a spicy dinner.

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.

Dość dobre jasne piwo. Szkoda że nie orginalnie produkowane w Bangladeszu. Ale tradycja angielska miała tu pewnie wpływ na smak. Bo to piwo jest zdecydowanie lepsze od innych egzotycznych lagerów

Bottle @ Nieuw jaars borrel 2014, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Thanks for sharing this Marvel. Clear golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is skunky, grainy and malty. Really boring actually and that goes for the flavour also actually.
