2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark gold body with a slightly yellow colored head. The aroma is grainy with soybeans and some light corn. There is also some grass. The taste is sweet with some oatmeal and nasty sweet corn. There is also some funky old rotting flowers. A strange beer. It is not skunked, but still tastes bad in some way. Wow, why did they have to sell this in larger sized bottles? Makes me wince and reminds me of some of the worse malt liquors I have tried.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Ugly label, ugly beer. Tastes like a cardboard strong european lager but without the 7% or so alcohol.

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

660ml bottle with a meal in Hythe. Straw with a white head; sweet and perfumed, with a strong hint of corn. Went well with a Jalfrezi, but not something to drink by itself

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.
