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?

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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a medium, clear orange body with a dense white head. Looks pretty good. Smell is almost exclusively light malts. This pretty much fits into the "international lager" category; light and drinkable, with sweet, bland maltiness and very limited hop background. Pleasant enough, but inevitably boring.

I must wear my glasses while out shopping, I must wear my glasses while out shopping.
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.
