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!"

Good lager head from this beer but with a very plain and non-descript aroma. The flavour is pleasantly hopped with a malt undertone, making the beer a very smooth lager/pilsner. The best beer that I have found to accompany an Indian meal.

Courtesy of tderoeck. Apparently conceived as a beer from Bangladesh or India, but, much like e.g. Cobra, brewed in England for the many Asian immigrants there - too bad, would have been an interesting country tick otherwise. Thin and unstable, off-white head, pale golden blonde colour with not much fizz, cristal clear. Aroma of rice, sweat, iron and burning rubber, unpleasant. Sweet and sourish graininess in the mouth, thin, weird sweet (industrial) apple cider accent not fitting in too well, soft carbo (undercarbonated in fact, but in this case the fact that the bottle had been opened a while before, explains everything, I assume); thin and clearly metallic body, rice flavour, straightforward with almost no hops for balance; I hardly detected any bitterness at all in this one. Very unpleasant in every way but still interesting to taste, I had never heard of it.

Warm golden colour, white head. Aroma of malts, skunky hops, bubble gum. Sweet malty flavour, corn. Sweet finish. Not nice.
(from 33cL bottle @ Leuven Innovation. Thanks for sharing, tderoeck)

Bullit (4460) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUL 23, 2011
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Expected a country tick, but brewed in bloody England. Clear golden colour, foamy white head. Nose is sweet malted, corn. Flavour is sweet malty, corn, little bitterness, a bit skunked.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2010 Bottle from Beers of Europe. Bright hoppy, grassy aroma. Slightly cloudy pale yellow colour. Sharp fresh and dry hoppy flavour. Watery texture. A bit bland but quite refreshing. A reasonable pale lager in a beautiful bottle. Perfect match for curry

Vaiz (4334) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle @ Nieuwjaarsborrel 2014, hosted by MrHangover. Clear golden pour. Aroma is metallic and grainy. Flavor is very watery and messy. Almost nothing to like about this.

660ml bottle in a curry house. Golden with a faint honey-malt nose, light malt and slightly beery body. OK but dull.

Palme (4181) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2011
0.66l massive green bottle. Pours a clear light golden body with a bubbly white head leaving small lacings. Nose is mildly malts, cactus, and some weak hops. Tastes quite fresh and malty, medium+ carbonated and medium- bodied. Ends quite sweet and fruity with cactus flavors. Not to exciting, but quite suitable for a spicy dinner.
