Rune (11055) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2015
330ml bottle, 4.7 % abv, at BaseCamp, Nepalese Restaurant in Helsinki. Airy white head reduced to a patchy layer. Poor lacing. Bright golden body. Pale malty sweetness on the nose. Taste is rather sweet dominated by grainy malts. Sweet malty endnotes. Soft carbonated. Unvaried but okay with the tandoori lamb (27.09.2015).

Bottle 0,33l at Ashoka in Amsterdam. Bready, with some bitter notes, grass and honey. Far from anything extraordinary. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"The Essence of Nepal" Drank from a nonic glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Pours an amber, yellow with decent carbonation and a bit of white head. Has super skunky aroma. Has a light, malty taste too it. A decent brew.

Bottle 33cl. A clear golden colour with a really small white head. An aroma of bread and fruit. The taste is medium sweet and light bitter.

33 cl bootle at a Nepalese Restaurant. Pale golden colour and small head.Small herbal and floral aroma and taste.Thin body. So this is just a random british lager with a nepalese label?

Totally thought this was going to be brewed in Nepal. Was somewhat disappointed to discover this isn't the case. Really bland lager.

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...
