1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. It was not exactly fresh, so I could fathom all those oxidised honey notes but even without them I doubt this one could be any more drinkable. At least the oxidisation combined with pale malts resulted in a smell strongly reminiscent of cheap whisky. Well, that’s at least something original. Additionally, there is some corn, cardboard and rice in here. Sweetish, ’heavyish’ for what it is. I miss the crispness that is the whole point of industrial pale lagers. Sorry, nothing worth checking out.

Golden clear colour, white head. very mainstream lager with no maltiness and with very little hops or anything in general. Washes well down the spicy Nepalese food.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle in Kathmandu. Sweet, corny nose. Soft texture with prickly carbonation. Overriding sweetness (sugar, corn, milk). Mild, peppery, drying bitterness. Dry and vapid finish. Entirely unexciting and unflavored.

Bottle from Monty’s in Kingston. Smooth but lacking in much character, a touch of soap and a somewhat watery palate. Fine as curry fodder.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Stronger and rounder, but it sadly brings out the average flavours the crispness of Everest did well to hide. Tastes a bit of rice pudding, which is fine if you’re tasting rice pudding but not so with a beer. Fosters-esque.
