1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
650 mL bottle in Kathmandu, Nepal. This is by far the beer of choice when in Nepal. It is not that different from Nepal Ice or Everest, but it is the better of the three. Pours a clear gold with lots of carbonation and a short-lived, white head that leaves some very faint lacing. Aroma is tonic water, lemongrass, sweet corn, and cereal. Taste is likewise but has a faint cherry juice component that perhaps I’m just imagining. Sweet finish. Not so bad but I can’t wait to get back to real beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle received as a gift from a friend. Thank you! 650 ml. bottle sampled @ home. BBF 02/16. Sticker on the back states that this was imported into Belgium. Surprised that there is a market big enough for this in Belgium to warrant shipping this across the globe. Clear golden, disappearing paper-white head. Nose is nasty corn, huge vegetable oil, very sweet industrial corn & eggs. Taste is sweet empty corn, vegetable oil, low mineral, big sweet corn, basic weird sweetener & corn sweetness, vegetables, starch, hay,… Oily, tad watery, quite industrial sweet,.. Very basic sweetness, no real bad flavours,… Not very good but I have definitely had worse, I expected this one to be worse.

The beer is pale golden in the glass, grainy nose. The start is grainy, smooth. Slightly sweet. The mainpart is smooth, grainy-sweet. Highly drinkable. In the aftertaste slightly grainy, not too sweet, slightly bitter.
A nice and typical Pale Lager. Aroma is good and it is very smooth! --> 12/13/11/10

Bottle courtesy of (zdk or Paul??) at the Daduary 2013 tasting. Barely remember this, but it wasn’t as awful as the label leads you to believe. Light lagery notes, slightly grainy, malty, grassy, spice and a touch of lemongrass.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Couple of 50cl bottles in my Kathmandu hotel. Pours a clear gold with some sticky, white head. Doesn’t look bad. Nose has some mild grass notes, a little lemon, but quite corny, a little white flour, quite crackery. Flavor is a bit weaker, lemon, yeast, white flour, a little vitamin C. Watery finish. Had worse.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden-yellow colour with low unsteady head and medium to crisp body. Nose of bitter hops. Taste of bitter hops, light metall, straw and citrus fruits. Easy to drink and quite refreshing, but the finish is just too bitter and thin-watery.
