COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly contract brewed by Hepworth for Refresh UK. Brand now owned by LWC Drinks - current provenance unknown.
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!"

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2005
Ugly label, ugly beer. Tastes like a cardboard strong european lager but without the 7% or so alcohol.

Sigmund (4939) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 1, 2009
660 ml bottle, as Bangla Premium Beer, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.2%. Very cool design of bottle and label. Brewed and bottled in the UK for LWC Ltd., Manchester, M11 2ER. Pale yellow colour, big white head. Fairly nice flowery aroma. The flavour is rather sweet with noticeable pilsener malts, bordering on "sugary", but not quite there. Some floral notes, hints of alcohol but not disturbingly so. Low bitterness. Not a great beer, but not awful either, should be acceptable to wash down a curry.

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2009
0.66 l bottle at Vihreä Haltiatar, Jyväskylä. Golden-orange color. Toffeish, honeyish and fruity aroma with apricot, sharp alcohol and rotten egg. The flavor is toffeish and papery with apricot, sharp alcohol and low bitterness. Has the foul Hepworth house character.

caesar (4897) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2005
It looks quite exotic, but it’s just brewed in England. Dusty aroma, some apple maybe. Dry taste, hay.

OleR (4770) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2010
0.66 L bottle (5.0% abv) from bestillingsutvalget Vinmonpolet. Low, dirty-blond head. Pure gold colored body. Unfresh, stale hops up front, paired with a nasty smell of nail polish remover. Some sweet honey-scented malts reveals after a while. Taste has a cloying and sugary malt-sweetness. Cardboardy, skunky hops in the backbone. Buttery mouthfeel. Sweetish malts and harsh bitterness in the ending. This beer is not good! Maybe something went wrong during the journey from the Bay of Bengal?

Bottle shared at Nieuwjaarsborrel. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of grain, light malt and cardboard. Flavor is light sweet and bitter. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

skortila (4424) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2005
Aroma is grainy with some apple in it. Clear, golden coloured with not much head (white). Some hops in it, some apple. Kind-a dirty taste. Ugly dry cardboard palate. What a crap.
