1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Another one of my pleasing surprises of a beer in Nepal. Actually this brew was quite palateable and would chase down a spicy curry quite well. There is a well balanced nature to this brew, even though it lacked any general characteristics of a "quality" beer. Environment has a lot to do with my personal appreciation of a brew and i suppose the environment made this brew better every single time. While lacling a certain charisma, i was never dissapointed with a Gorkha. (considering the circumstance)

Run of the mill pale lager with maybe a touch of sweet corn. Fairly carbonated mouth. Washed down the curry rather well, though.

A grainy pale lager that tastes a touch sweet and corny but not overly bad. Some decent hops for a lager.

Rubber, corn and mild graininess in the nose. Brilliantly clear pale golden body is topped by a low white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Corn, rubber and grain in the flavour as well with mild finishing bitterness. Light body with somewhat low carbonation. Bottle (Best Before 11/11/06) sampled with BeerPrince, CapFlu and Oakes.

Pale gold colour. Bland bready aroma with light plastic. Watery, with a slight hoppy crispness and more bland bread. Sweetish, inoffensive and that’s the best I can say about it. Thanks, Todd!
