Bottle from Sainsburys Team Valley. Not much aroma or effervescence. Pretty standard big company lager - enjoyable ice cold on a sunny day and flat enough to complement a spicy meal .

MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2014
Backlog. Tried it bottled from Systembolaget. Just another tropical-lager if you ask me. Moving on.

Padchenko (84) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 14, 2014
Golden yellow with limited head. Light and refreshing, mild and weak lager. Very straightforward. Goes well with a hot curry!

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2014
Typical warm weather country beer. It is easy to drink when cold, there’s no head and the sweetness gets somewhat unpleasant when it gets warmer. However, there’s enough bitterness here to help it along when enjoyed alongside its main ally, spicy Indian food. Since most Indian restaurants only has this, Kingfisher or local lagers, you’ll most likely have this beer more often than you would think.

bartlebier (1814) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2014
33cl bottle loaded onto my Leuven bikeload by tirelessly countrytick-trading tderoeck, merci! Apparent contract brew by UK Coors for India/¿Bangladesh? "Impossibly smooth world drink". Pours a dull orange-hay with macropored head. Aroma is fair enough, grainy with an undefined prickle, yet none too heavy on sulfur or cardboard. Taste is fair grains, sweet sticky corn underneath, honey syrup, some metallic/spicy hop presence on top and margarine-buttered cardboard after all in between. Still not as bad as anticipated: must have been a fresh fly-in. Like many an exotic expat on a mission of world dominance, this actually has a tad more character over some spineless EU macrolagers - maybe not just all that a pleasant one.

HopfenWeisse (1088) - - APR 27, 2014
Clear golden color with small head. Aroma is grainy. Flavor is malt, grain. Pretty ok while grilling in the sun.

bunget (561) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear straw body, minimal white foam. Aroma of grains, hay, a touch of herbal hops. Taste: sweet malt, grass, hay, some traces of hops. Nothing fancy, just another macro, but it went well with a spicy butter chicken.
