Bottle, Nepal edition. It’s a clear, golden beer topped by a dense, finger-thick white head leaving some lacings. Rather buttery aroma, fruity and with some pale malts. Sweetish, buttery and fruity flavor with some pale malts and a decent bitterness. Medium body. Nice carbonation. Lasting finish. Not too pleasant this one, but with some pleasant notes. 141219

ElDesmadre (2279) - Mikołów, POLAND - SEP 24, 2014
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.

Grumbo (875) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle at Great Nepalese Restaurant, Euston, London. Pours a golden colour, with a small white head. Sweet, grassy aroma. Light bodied, average carbonation, light bitterness to finish. This appears to be a UK brewed version from the same people who are (were?) UK Importer.

nimbleprop (5942) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 12, 2015
650ml bottle in Kathmandu. Holy skunk! Pours a clear gold with some thin, creamy, white head. Nose is fairly skunked, you could get this from a few feet away. A little cheesy, a little feety, up close you get lemon and weird cotton candy. Flavor has grass, a little pissy, lemon, some sour candies. Watery finish.
