2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
660ml bottle with curry. Poured a clear, effervescent golden yellow with a small but mostly lasting white head leaving a patchy lace. There’s not a whole lot going on here but it slakes the thirst and cools the palate as you’d hope for when eating Indian food. Sweet malts, grain, citrus and grassy hops just about sum things up. Light to medium body, medium carbonation finishing with a bitterness of short to moderate length and low intensity.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Only rating this to stick with rating all the beers I’ve drunk since signing up. Bottle at Thali Thali, Woking. Virtually non-existant aroma. Light amber, no head to speak of. Completely flat in terms of palate, no life to it, with a sweet taste, which manages not to be sickly. I think the phrase is ’near beer’?

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Det er altid med en hvis skepsis jeg åbner øl fra "de varme lande", de er gerne lidt tynde i det, og gode som tørstslukker i det varme vejr. Men her i det kolde nord, foretrækker jeg nu en kraftig porter.
Nå, men det er nu ik’ så ringe den her. Den er ikke ret humlet, som de plejer at være, men den har mere smag, af noget der minder over i noget fersken agtigt. Rimelig eftersmag.

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.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Pabna, Leek. Pours a clear deep golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of rice, some grain, a little banana and slight herbal hops.
Taste of soft bready malt, grain, some banana, subtle spice and slight herbal hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, grainy bitterness in the finish with a subtle cardboard aftertaste. The hint of banana and herbs in this threw me a little but it’s still a generic, Indian restaurant lager. Ok.
