It’s yellow with just a bit of head, nothing special in its looks. Smells like dirty socks mixed with coriander, a dull aroma and not tinny or alcoholic, but still not appealing. Tastes of bread and cardboard with a dry finish. Not quite interesting.

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

Nej, det här var inte okej. Smaken i sig var hyfsat ’lager-lik’ men den var också tunn och blaskig på ett sätt som nästan gav lite avsmak.

Alengrin (1296) - 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.

Bottled. Pale golden colour, medum-sized but diminishing head with some lace. Slightly honey-sweet malty nose, light grassy hops, a hint of green apples and wet paper. Quite clean though. Light, slightly sweet grainy taste, lightly bitter finish. Slighty watery but quite fresh.

A Nepalese fry-shop owner in Antwerp had this in his cooler. It has two kukri-knives on the label, how cool is that? One will do.

Slightly sweet lager beer. Drunk at lovely Nepalese restaurant in Brussels and in Nepal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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)

Förutom Coblezner är Gorkha det enda öl från Nepal som man faktiskt kan ha glädje att tillbringa tid med. Den gör sig inga större besvär för att behaga men är ändå en upplevelse som får gommen att spinna. En rekorderlig lager som det är lika svårt att hitta invändningar mot som det är att ogilla.

Common pilsner beer. Small head that disappears quite quickly. Taste is quite flat. Nothing special.
