2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a three finger white head that fades quickly leaving a trace of lace. Chrystal clear light amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Apple juice/cider nose. Starts sweet, fizzy apple flavor hints of adjuncts in background. Brewer says "With a strength of 5.2% ABV, Bangla is stronger than most Indian beers and has a fuller flavour and smoother taste, which perfectly complements spicy food." Didn’t know what to expect. $1.99 for a 660ml bottle from John’s Market Place Tigard, Or.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Very sweet and mild beer with a misplaced harsh and unclean finish. Quite meaningless really.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
04.02.2012. 0,66l Bottle. 5.0% abv. vinmonopolet.no. Pale yellow colour with white head. Aroma of cabbage and cauliflower. And if you think im really in to vegetables - im not. This gives this beer a very poor and nast aroma. This fades a little the more you drink and after a while there is more malt and bitterness. Leavs a dry tounge with dry mouthfeel. More cabbage at the end. POOR.

From bottle. Very sweet beer. Strong honey flavour. Sweet scented aroma. Gold in colour. I enjoyed the first sip but just got to sickly. Nice with the curry mind.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dutch Ratebeer meeting. First more or less ok head of the evening. Flavour resembles a British IPA a little bit. Enough bitterness, but not overly entertaining.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a creamy white head. Decent lacing. Sweet, hoppy aroma with a tart grainy note. Sweet, grainy flavour with a touch of apple and a tart wine-like note. Tart, grainy finish. This is really all about the grain. 07.10.11.
