Man, this one is quite bad. I bought it for the cool bottle in the shop but was disappointed in the beer itself.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Krait bottling. Contract brewed in Poland, with an interesting bottle that contained a bizzarre mixture of Indian and Egyptian images. Unfortunately, the bottle was more interesting than the contents. Light gold, a bit fizzy, held a better head than I was expecting. Aroma is very faintly of corn. Flavor is a classic mixture of corn and rice, but there is an actualy hint of grassy hops on the finish. Not totally awful.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
22 oz. bottle labled as "Krait Beer." Poured very pale yellow with a frothy white head which lasted surprisingly well. Aroma of faint corn with some paint. Shockingly watery, no life, no carbonation (did it all go to the head?). Flavor of sweet corn syrup with a little chemical aftertaste. Way too sweet.
However, the relief on the bottle - snake charmer, Indian swords, elephants, etc. was kind of cool.

After watching the runners in Midnight Sun Marathon I had a couple of beers at Blå Rock Cafe in Tromsø. Do not really know the reason why the cafe has imported this beer, Aroma is hardly present at all and the flavours are killed by too lively carbonation. Some notes of sweetness, hops and malt can be spotted in the background. Smooth and watery. Two delicious pints of Deuchards made me forget this pale yellow lager.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bought as Krait, says brewed in Poland for Cobra..wondered why a Polish beer had a picture of India on the label. Main reason I bought it. Some interesting aspects to the aroma, hoppyness, liquorice, candy, the aniced they give out in Indian restaurants, yes, thats it. Over all: Too watery. Too Too watery.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Interesting, even odd looking 0.33l bottle... hmm... why on Earth is this imported here ? I guess that the Indians here will be pleased. The both of them. Hrm. Anyway, pale yellow colour, small white head that disappeared instantly. Very fizzy initially. Blah. Nose that starts off sharp and skunky, but turns out to be a lame sourish malt/dust aroma. Wow. Taste... "smooth" (read: watery), some lemoniness, maybe just a bit of interesting fruity maltiness, but this is corn country. Some, erm, hops (maaaybe) can be felt too. Dust again ? Short lemony aftertaste. Reminds me a bit of Molson Canadian, only a tad more watery and a tad less corny. Could be worse, but it’s still bad.

Pale yellow, very pale, almost transparent. Malty, grainy aroma with some hints of vegetables and corn. Sugary and actually somewhat hoppy flavour. Really watery, and i mean really!!!

Sampled as Krait at Binny’s Orland Park. An improvement over the Siwo I just had before this. This one manages a bit more malt than I’d find in the usual pale lager. Taste is a bit more relaxing. But, im, a beer aimed at India, brewed in Belgium by an English company for export to America? Make up your mind.

Decent, relatively flavorful lager with very little hoppiness. Light malt. I’d drink it again.
