1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
0.5l bottle from Meny Grønland, Oslo. Wonder why I thought this was from Asia.. It pours a clear pale orange like body with a small quickly fading white lager head. Aroma has pale malts, hints of fruits and some dusty old hops. Average fizzing carbonation level and the mouthfeel is thin and watery. Flavors much the same; thin and watery. Almost no bitterness. Drinkable, but really boring stuff.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Zubr version, thanks Krasek! Golden body, crappy grainy malty nose. The taste gets better though, Czech maltiness (rice crispies), creamy but not showcasing anything else. Hops? Not really. Could’ve been better.

Ölen intogs vid en fantastiskt bra indisk restaurang i Göteborg och det är möjligt att den goda maten gjorde så att ölen upplevdes som bättre än vad den faktiskt var.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hm, seems like everybody’s talking about different versions of this, so just to be clear, mine is: 0.5L bottle. apparently brewed in the czech republic according to an ’indian recipe’. dark yellow, golden, coppery in colour, basic malts on the nose, with a slight touch of greenish hops. A bit of honey, cornish malt flavour with some metallic notes. Could see me having one of these with some tandori just because of the indian-like label on the bottle (although I’d wish the bottle was filled with something else..).

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
50 cl bottle.
Pale golden colour. Aroma is grass, some mild hops, citrus and malts. Flavour is citrus, some dry hay, malts and distant notes of caramel. Light-bodied and very watery mouthfeel with a dry finish. This should go well with spicy food, otherwise, don’t bother.
