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.

Pours a clear golden color. Topped with a decent white head. The aroma is very weak, the nose barely picks up anything, except little malty aroma. The taste is sweet at first, balanced in the body, slightly bitter in the finish with again sweet aftertaste. Drinkable, but that’s it.

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.

330 ml green bottle bought at a Nepalese restaurant somewhere on Temple Street in Yau Ma Tei.

Dull golden yellow colour; Less than one-quarter finger head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing with active carbonation; Pungent smell of malt, with initial light skunk (lasted for 1 minute), grains, corn, light wet cardboard, hints of sourness, very light lemon and smelly grass; Medium sweet taste of light malt, with light syrup, corn, light wet paper, light lemon, minimal bitter hops and light grass; Light body. Watery palate; Mouth feel is very light malt in thin body, thinned syrup with is slightly cloying , some corny taste, nagging light wet cardboard. Poor!... Hoppiness is initial light skunk followed by smelly grass to nose. Light lemon and low grass in taste. Low bitterness in background for syrupy non-finish; Wet after taste. Sweet and light papery to mouth.

Comments: Poor lager from Nepal. The green bottle may have contributed to light skunk and slight oxidation, but all in all it’s just light-weight, teeth-numbing sweetness and useless smelly hops. Unenjoyable, and I was glad I didn’t ruin my Nepalese dinner with this crap. Drain pours!

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.

It’s like a tasteless lager, with no aroma and with no bitterness. But still in mind blowing hot Nepal it’s unbelievable refreshing.

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.
