It looks quite exotic, but it’s just brewed in England. Dusty aroma, some apple maybe. Dry taste, hay.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
660ml green bottle at Mowgli’s Cardiff, as ’Bangla’, 4.8%, BB Dec 2016. Dark amber orange, clear, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is light and airy, some biscuit and sugar. Body is light with tingly carbonation. Taste is toffee sweet, biscuit, tonic water, crisp finish with very little bitterness. I think my overly salty curry made me appreciate this more than I otherwise would have done. It’s fine.

Write that 100 times you naughty boy!
The temples of Dinajpur, the tea gardens of Sylhet and the rain forests of Sundarban are all in Bangladesh, but this beer hasn’t been anywhere near them.
I am trying to drink round the world, this beer hasn’t helped.
The truth is I quiet liked the beer (for a UK brewed lager).
Brown 660ml bottle, best before 31 Mar 09, drank Feb 09.
The normal pale golden yellow that all lager/pilsners/helles usually appear like. the same small white disappearing head and the same non-aroma most have too. Thin looking, as again some lagers tend to do.
This beer however was a sweet version, not sickly, but even in the non-aroma there was a hint of something sweeter than normal.
It had flavour too, nothing huge, just a presence and a bodyfeel over and above your regular Curry cooling lager, maybe the 5.2% alcohol helped?
Even though I was disappointed to discover it came from Hepworth’s I enjoyed the beer.
