2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
5.2% 660ml bottle. Sweet, unsubtly potent booziness. All the adjuncty, ricey softness you’d expect, but some Pils-like bitterness in the ’finish’. Washes down a Zal Mass with roasted chillies inoffensively enough.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow and clear. Has a white head, mostly diminishing. Faint malty aroma, ok aroma. Flavor is a bit unpleasent, odd maltyness, or is the hop? watery texture.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I thought I'd bagged an elusive Bangladeshi beer until I came to post the rating to the site. Doh! Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised by the beer, which is a reasonable, if unexciting golden lager. Minimal aroma, some soft hops on the palate and a soft, fresh finish. Just a hint of sweetness. It is far better than some of its rivals and has a bit more alcohol. For once, I wasn't drinking this with a curry, but I reckon this would go down just fine with Asian food. 330ml bottled (best before November 2003) from beersofeurope.co.uk

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Medium offwhite coarseish head doesn’t last. Light coppery body. Strawy sugary grainy aroma with perfumy solvent and toffee notes. Dry-sweetish alcoholic grainy taste with banana and earth notes. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Mid-to-full body. No aftertaste, just fades out very quickly. Undrinkable. (0.66l bottle, wine monopoly.)

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
660 ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours clear golden with a big frothy off-white head. Aroma of sunstruck hops, boiled corn. Taste is sweet perfume, cloying honey, just bad all over. Very harsh and stale ending.

24/V/15 - 33cl bottle @ train ride to LIBF (Leuven) - BB: 19/V/15 (2015-683) Thanks to jc1762 for the bottle!
Note: alas no country tick, Jon! :p
Clear orange beer, small creamy off-white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very sweet, bit malty, fruity, sugar, banana. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: lots of banana, bit yeasty, sweet touch, more banana, citrus. Aftertaste: sweet, banana, yeast, slightly bitter, more banana. You would think they used Westmalle yeast to brew this beer. Very weird...
