Aroma is either really skunky or really dank. The flavor is pale malts, a little skunk and not really much else, as usual for a pale lager in a green bottle.

Flat, no foam, no carbonation, pilsener with almost no aftertaste. Brewed in the UK apparently...

Clear yellow colour, no head. Hardly any carbonation, dull taste. I wonder if there was a problem with my bottle as other guests had a glass with a nice white head and seemed to enjoy it.

Light golden colour, very little head. Tastes of hay, some carbonation present. Quite a boring beer.

thellgren (534) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
0.33 l bottle from local supermarket. Looks like an average lager with lots of bubbles and decent head. Taste is very malty, better than I expected. There is also some hops and CO2. Quite nice in its style, not just water with a hint of beer.

zach8270 (3961) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2014
(bottle - 24 oz) Disappointed on so many levels. Thought it was actually from Nepal. Clear gold. No head. Bad skunked aroma and an even worse skunked taste.

33cl bottle from Khukuri restaurant. Appearance - golden with a very thin head which quickly disappears. Nose -gentle pale malt and some citrus. Taste - more lemon malt. Palate - very thin body but at least it’s refreshing which is essential for this style. Overall - had worse and it doesn’t offend.
