More European-style than the African lagers I poured the same night. Pale lager with some offensive sweetness, chemical adjuncts. I wouldn’t recommend it, even among bad international lagers, though it isn’t bottom barrel either.

Light malt flavor and aroma, but a little hop aroma. Gold color. Drinkable enough, but it could have more flavor. I don’t think of Nepal as a place where these flavorless lagers are desirable.

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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
