2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled at Beer Palace, Oslo. A pale and rather watery laget, but a little hoppy sting in the tail. Hard to see where this is brewed/bottled.

Yep, tastes like a lager. Nothing particularly bad or good about it. A tiny bit hoppier than I expected.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(0.33L Bottle) Not much taste, yet a lingering sweet floral aftertaste. Very light beer with little carbonation.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle in an indian restaurant in London. Just an okay, run of the mill lager that doesn’t match too terribly with curry.

Drinking from a bottle of Krait - Actually, this is fairly drinkable - like a beer flavored bottled water... and I don’t entirely mean that negatively. The faint aroma reveals its corn mash in the brew coupled with light, sweet malts. Watery, sweet and sugary in the mouth with light malt and corn syrup sweetness. Good lawnmower beer material.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Swedish "Systembolaget" in October 2005.
Very light in color, scent and taste. Low bitterness. Watery. I guess it can work weell with spicy indian food and hot summer days, but for good taste alone, no thank you.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Brewed in Poland for sale in the UK and sold ultimately in the US. All that and looks like it wants to be from Africa and smells like it came from a zoo. Dry, not so great. I should be in Savannah or in the Sahara desert plains hunting wild buffalo or mounting zebras taming them to race across the continent in search of mummies. Im not too sure about this one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The bottle I sampled was one of the Krait labels. Pours a clear yellow with a fleeting head. There’s not a lot of flavor, but then, there’s nothing offensive either.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
660ml bottle. I’ve had Indian lagers before, but only usually at an Indian Restaurant with a meal, so i’ve never had chance to ponder the beer on it’s own terms. It poured fairly decently, with the regulation lager amber colour. The aroma, to be fair, isn’t wonderful, it’s not unpleasant, but it’s not really better than MACRO-brew muck such as Foster’s or Carling, which i wouldn’t touch with a bargepole. A decent head on pouring, though this subsides quickly. As for the taste - watery, but what redeems cobra, in my mind, is the wonderful nutty aftertaste. I can see how this has been brewed to compliment traditional Indian food and through choice, I wouldn’t drink it on it’s own, I’d certainly recommend it as one of the best to accompany a curry.
