3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a three finger white head that fades quickly leaving a trace of lace. Chrystal clear light amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Apple juice/cider nose. Starts sweet, fizzy apple flavor hints of adjuncts in background. Brewer says "With a strength of 5.2% ABV, Bangla is stronger than most Indian beers and has a fuller flavour and smoother taste, which perfectly complements spicy food." Didn’t know what to expect. $1.99 for a 660ml bottle from John’s Market Place Tigard, Or.

Bottled. This beer was new to my local ruby house. Nicely presented with a big generous hoppy aroma. The beer drinks like any other larger and you don't nice the primary effects of the alcohol but rather just the secondary effects on the mind. Nice beer that has re-assured my inclanation to travel to the sub-continent.

From bottle. Very sweet beer. Strong honey flavour. Sweet scented aroma. Gold in colour. I enjoyed the first sip but just got to sickly. Nice with the curry mind.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Very sweet and mild beer with a misplaced harsh and unclean finish. Quite meaningless really.

Dutch Ratebeer meeting. First more or less ok head of the evening. Flavour resembles a British IPA a little bit. Enough bitterness, but not overly entertaining.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
04.02.2012. 0,66l Bottle. 5.0% abv. vinmonopolet.no. Pale yellow colour with white head. Aroma of cabbage and cauliflower. And if you think im really in to vegetables - im not. This gives this beer a very poor and nast aroma. This fades a little the more you drink and after a while there is more malt and bitterness. Leavs a dry tounge with dry mouthfeel. More cabbage at the end. POOR.
