Nepali beer! But it is owned by a big European brewery. Sadly lacking in flavor and interesting elements - bland and watery, with no discernible hop content. It might contain some wheat and rice.

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 thatís it.

Itís 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.

Itís like a tasteless lager, with no aroma and with no bitterness. But still in mind blowing hot Nepal itís unbelievable refreshing.

girlfriend brought back a bottle from Nepal, and I shared it at a tasting. A basic light, pale lager with a sweet malty base and some corn and hay notes. Actually not a bad offering for what was probably 10 cents worth of beer.

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

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 itís just light-weight, teeth-numbing sweetness and useless smelly hops. Unenjoyable, and I was glad I didnít ruin my Nepalese dinner with this crap. Drain pours!
