GoufCustom (824) - HONG KONG - SEP 16, 2014


330 ml green bottle bought at a Nepalese restaurant somewhere on Temple Street in Yau Ma Tei.

Dull golden yellow colour; Less than one-quarter finger head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing with active carbonation; Pungent smell of malt, with initial light skunk (lasted for 1 minute), grains, corn, light wet cardboard, hints of sourness, very light lemon and smelly grass; Medium sweet taste of light malt, with light syrup, corn, light wet paper, light lemon, minimal bitter hops and light grass; Light body. Watery palate; Mouth feel is very light malt in thin body, thinned syrup with is slightly cloying , some corny taste, nagging light wet cardboard. Poor!... Hoppiness is initial light skunk followed by smelly grass to nose. Light lemon and low grass in taste. Low bitterness in background for syrupy non-finish; Wet after taste. Sweet and light papery to mouth.

Comments: Poor lager from Nepal. The green bottle may have contributed to light skunk and slight oxidation, but all in all it’s just light-weight, teeth-numbing sweetness and useless smelly hops. Unenjoyable, and I was glad I didn’t ruin my Nepalese dinner with this crap. Drain pours!

Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
The best known Nepalese beer next to Nepal Ice and Everest, from a Carlsberg-owned brewery in Katmandu. Thin, snow white head, colour clear golden blonde with calm sparkling. Sweet grainy aroma, typical Asian lager with hints of rice, honey, bread dough, powdered sugar and mineral water. Rather neutral taste, grainy, bit corn-like, sweetish with minerals, smooth, soft carbonation, very mild hoppiness in the finish, which stays grainy rather than becoming actually bitter. Nothing exciting apart from the fact that it comes from a country hardly anyone would go to for beer purposes.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a small amount of head. Light malty flavor with a quick finish.

It’s like a tasteless lager, with no aroma and with no bitterness. But still in mind blowing hot Nepal it’s unbelievable refreshing.

MarkoNm (546) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 18, 2014
Pours a clear golden color. Topped with a decent white head. The aroma is very weak, the nose barely picks up anything, except little malty aroma. The taste is sweet at first, balanced in the body, slightly bitter in the finish with again sweet aftertaste. Drinkable, but that’s it.

mjs (4622) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 15, 2014
(Bottle, 0.65 l - BB 12/3/2014, courtesy of rosenbergh, 20140315) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness and berries. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, berries, malts and bitterness. Afteraste was sweet and bitter. Not really awful beer but still bad. Almost clean.
