Light golden pour with a small head. Sweet aroma of cornmeal. Some carbonation. Corn is the main flavor here but there is something behind it, maybe unripe apples.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Sampled from 330 ml aluminum can that was supplied by Nuffield. Pours a clear golden blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of light corn and barn hay, some grassy hops and touch of wheat. Taste is light bodied, light carbonation with flavors of light corn, a touch of rice, pear and grassy hops. Finish is watery with some light fruit and corn aftertaste.

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.

(22oz bottle) Sampled at at a gathering at TiggMTL’s place in Vancouver on June 30, 2007. Very corny nose with a cracker undertone. Smooth and milky - not like I like my Pale Lagers.

Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2007
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!
