3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden, clear with large, but collapsing white head. Malty aroma. Malty sweet flavour as well. Soft carbonation. Notes of soap (in a positive sense). Hides the ABV. Sugar sticky palate. Drinkable. Reading other, earlier ratings its obvious that the quality has improved for the last year.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of KnutAlbert at Mes&Sims wedding. A great moment with Knut booming out: "Come, come - it’s a new country!", which only a beer collector would understand. The beer was extra-ordinary in the way that only lager brewed in a third world country can be. Flavours of pineapple and corn syrup with a dead hedgehog aroma. Fascinating and much more enjoyable than it sounds.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry, Jerc, Blankboy, Mabel,and GregClow, courtesy of Harry (Harry - did you really get this in a trade, I thought it was from a co worker?). Mild grainy aroma. Clear yellow, some form of a white head. Taste is mild, inoffensive, grainy, no sign of the alcohol. Medium bodied. Not nearly as bad as the babies at the table made it out to be :)

Very pale, low carbonation. No taste at all at first, then the cardboard creeps in. Then a little perfumed sweetness and an edge of alcohol.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled@Mes & Sim’s Wedding (thanks KnutAlbert!). Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grainy, earthy, mildly "sugary" notes (maybe sugar from some vegetable/plant). Flavour is grainy, toffeeish, earthy and quite grassy. Could have been a lot worse.

OK I have tried this when a friend brought me from his trip to bhutan and tibet. I was thinking I would like it as I like strong beers but it was quite bad, like you put sugar in alcohol.
