DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - JAN 4, 2010
Found in Bandipur, about 125km northwest of Kathmandu. You don’t even see advertising for Iceberg until you’re past the halfway point on the Kathmandu-Pokhara highway. This is highly localized stuff! Pours darker-yellow with barely any head, and I tried to get some foam out of this one but it just wouldn’t bite. Aroma is all metal, water, alcohol, completely unappealing. Flavour is a corn mix with hints of lemon water, and just a little bit of grain in there to remind you you’re actually supposed to be drinking beer. Weak mouthfeel. Perhaps there’s a reason this beer isn’t more widely available.

madsberg (10231) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2009
Bottled in Pokhara. Light golden coloured. Clear. Very small off white head. Rye, malt and light spice in the aroma. Flavour is ryebread, sticky sweetness and again some spice. Thin bodied. Sweetish and alcohol dense end. Actually think this is more of an malt liqour or european strong lager, but anyway same brewer same name.

[Sampled locally in Kathmandu.] Between all the "overseas" beers such as Carlsberg "&" Heineken we had to taste something local, which was ok to some spicy food. Why drink your own homeland brew when your are away from home? Act local, when you travel...and leave only footsteps!

Reasonable, somewhat sweet Nepalese lager with slight lingering bitterness, best drunk with the smell of lit incense and a monkey sitting on your head.

Very mild and drinkable. But nothing to write home about. Perhaps they should brew a Titanic Ale as well.

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2002
Shiny-golden hue with a bubbly white head - quickly diminishes. Interesting, spicy aroma. Saffron maybe? Flowery flavors in this beer would go well with Indian food, I’d suspect (don’t know why, it just reminded me of something I tasted at an Indian restaurant once). Moderate mouthfeel has a smooth and weighted texture. Strange, musty off-flavor; but that could be from the beer being out of date.

A Nepalese beer, first for me. Not bad, soft body, very malty for the style.

Ernest (6221) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2002
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, dense particles ranging from tiny to medium size. Aroma is lightly hoppy (flowers, perfume). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. The hop aroma is strangely similar to the heather in Fraoch, but much much lighter here. Sweet with almost nothing else for balance.
