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!"

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." Didnít know what to expect. $1.99 for a 660ml bottle from Johnís Market Place Tigard, Or.

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.

660ml bottle at my local curry house. Drank about 100ml of it. Urinary infection dark yellow. Hard citrus aroma with pickling juice. Strong alcohol taste. Malt. Sour citrus. More malt. Unbalanced. Overcarbonated palette. Poor. Exceptionally so.

NosirIwont (2367) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2011
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.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - OCT 25, 2003
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.

jerohen (2181) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2005
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.

JonMoore (2066) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2005
It is good with curry (taste buds temporarily comprimised), but I wouldnít chose to drink it otherwise. Golden coloured, mostly mild flavoured, bit of malt, touch of hops, some metal. Much better than Kingfisher, Cobra etc, but still not very good.
