3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Yellowish golden colour with huge white foamy head. Strong malty aroma with some fruity hints. Smooth malty flavour which becomes a more sweet malt in finish. A bit caramel in aftertaste. Even better beer for Indian food than Cobra. Good beer to have while "socializing" too.

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.

Dość dobre jasne piwo. Szkoda że nie orginalnie produkowane w Bangladeszu. Ale tradycja angielska miała tu pewnie wpływ na smak. Bo to piwo jest zdecydowanie lepsze od innych egzotycznych lagerów

660ml bottle, Kings Cross Tandoori, London (£4.25):
Corn & some lager malts with light and sweet notes. There is some grassy hops as well and overall the beer is light on the nose with a clean and fresh aroma.
Bright amber with a foamy white head that holds pretty well for a pale lager. Clear and there is some signs of carbonation showing.
Light and clean taste with some grassy hops, faint background fruits and some light bitterness. Quite refreshing tasting and one that goes down well with a curry.
Clean and refreshing too, particularly with spicy food. There is a slightly grainy feel but nothing major. Carbonation is moderate to strong and the beer goes down easy.
A pretty good pale lager and much better than one would expect going in. The taste is a crisp and clean one with a nice bite at the end and it goes particularly well with spicy food.

Yellow and with no carbonation. Slightly sweet and a little thin. Not as bad as i had expected but nothing to write home about either.

Hoppy nose, bronze hue, large 660 ml bottle, the hops are quite tasty here and this beer is pretty good - worth having with a curry

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 33cl. 5.2 ABV. It pours a golden beer with a small white head. The nose is of quinces. Subtly roasted with hints of caramel, cereals, peaches and apricots. Some tea and sorbet appearing. Sweet malty taste with a hint of quinces accompanied by a nice roasty touch. A bit watery. Some ginger showing up. The finish is crisp, malty with a hint of mint and ginger.

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
